Getting Distressed with Lines and Paper

Hello! Happy Friday to everyone! This week at The Friday Mashup our challenge is brought to us by Heidi and she has a pretty interesting one. She says " In honor of tax day, use notebook paper or spreadsheet/balance sheet paper on your project. Even graph paper will work. If you don't have any laying around, you can also create your own paper with a ruler, marker and white card stock. Let's add some distressing to dirty up your paper. It's been a rough all-nighter with the taxes, hasn't it? "

My husband had this yellow graph paper laying around so I snagged that, and I also happened to have some retired Taken With Teal on my desk and it looked good with the yellow, so I used that also. I stamped my image on the graph paper and then crumbled it up and tore it to make it look like it had been around for a long time. My youngest came in and asked me if I had burned the edges and when I had told him no he was pretty impressed with what I had done LOL I'm glad my kids are easily impressed :)

Head over to The Friday Mashup and play along with us!

  1. Create a project using "Lined paper (Notebook, Graph, Spreadsheet etc.)".
  2. Create a project that has a "Distressed appearance".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with "Lined paper that's Distressed looking".

  2. LOVE! Great colours and distressing - That graph paper looks awesome on the Teal, especially with all the tears and 'scratches'. Fabulous card, Lisa!
