Guess who's into the weathered, beaten-up look?
Given my recent resolve to use my Tim Holtz/Ranger stash, I've been really into the weathered, beaten-up look. :) Here is my hardworking bookend cum remote control holder for LESSology Challenge #15: The Bookend Challenge.
I adhered scrunched-up wrapping tissue to a wooden holder using gel medium. Then I proceeded to "distress" it with distress inks [for the different tones], distress embossing powder [for the gritty, grainy texture] and misted with walnut stain [let it drip into the crevices and dry naturally overnight].
Here's how it looks holding my remote controls and propping up my sketch journals. :)
Supplies: Prima canvas letters, Ranger distress inks, embossing powders and glossy accent, Maya mist, EK Sucess walnut ink, Graphic 45 patterned papers, Claudine Hellmuth gel medium, wooden holder, wrapping tissue.
