Faux Wood

Happy Monday!
 
 
I hope you enjoyed the Artist Team Blog Hop last Friday. Since I love being outdoors I tend to find myself using lots of wood and natural embellishments. Today I wanted to share how I made my faux wood paper.
 
 
Create hot glue lines and "V"s on a cardstock mat. 
 
 
Turn paper over and score every 1/4 inch.
 
 
Turn paper back over with glue side up and begin rubbing distress inks.
 
 
 I used three different browns.
Spritz with water to blend.
 
 
Finished panel
 
 
I like to make several panels at once since I'm making a mess anyways.
You can make the browns as dark or light as you want. You're the boss!
 
Club Scrap papers, tags. Want 2 Scrap pearls. Tim Holtz distress inks.

I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
