I have had fun today, and have been making faux leather as per an idea by Sheena Douglass. I couldn't find my Sheena embossing folders - ovbiously in a very safe place, or up in the Den! However, I made do with some old cuttlebug folders in my stash, that haven't seen the light of day for a long while! I particularly like this book mark, using one of the narrow folders.
I also don't have a lot of distress inks (something to be rectified), at least not a lot of brown shades, so once again I made do with what I had - using mainly bundled sage, scattered straw, peeled paint, and dusty concord. I also got out my Ink Duster and used some orange colours from a couple of my Big and Juicy pads. Amazing how you can improvise!
