{studio friday} antique/patina

this is the topic for this week's studio that is near & dear to my heart, because i just adore distressing & aging cards, photos, paper, ribbons>>>you name it, i'll distress it! i actually have a distressing kit put together by one of my fave companies, making memories... as you can see, the kit is housed in a handy flip top box filled with all sorts of goodies... but the tools i usually favor {& have proven faithful & trusted} for my distressing/aging needs are: good old sandpaper {with a carpenter for a husband, these are never in short supply!}, paper edger thingie {makes fab ragged edges of your paper}, the metal spiky roller {that reminds me of a ravioli cutter} & {my all-time fave} distressed inks by tim holtz.
there is something that draws me to age, antique, patina my creations...& for that, i'm truly glad!Posted by Picasa

    It appears that you are more of a pro at the stamping thing than I am. :)

    Great tools! I've never seen the paper edger thingy before. That looks cool. As for the spiky roller thing...when I saw it, I thought I need to dig out my marking wheel (probably not it's correct name) from my sewing's quite similar and would be great for adding texture to pages! (And since I rarely use it for sewing much anymore, might as well repurpose it! LOL)
