Technique Junkies - Faux Sanding & Simple Whitewash

I haven't been too busy in the studio lately - I have been trying to get caught up on so many different things it seems like I never have time left for fun! I did take some time earlier this week to play around with two techniques from the latest Technique Junkie newsletter.

The card above uses a technique called Faux Sanding. I absolutely love the texture you get from this tech. I added a background stamp from Oxford Impressions and the girl is a wonderful photo stamp from ARTchix Studio.

This card uses a technique called Simple Whitewash. It is true to its name - very simple! I love the Shabby Chic look that it brings to the background. The main image is from Artistic Outpost's new Generation Redux collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
