If you follow Jenny's (Buttons) blog you will know that she generously shares her wonderful new techniques, through tutorials and videos and I wanted to refresh my mind on her faux wood technique which you can find HERE. It really is a fantastic technique and the wood looks so realistic (and weather worn) when it is finished.
The picture below shows the album cover after I used Jenny's technique, with the colours I chose, although you can choose any colours you like. It also shows one of the new thinlets die cuts - Mixed Media, there are four fabulous dies in this collection. I 'rusted' the die cut by using a mix of Distress Paint and Distress Stains in Rusty Hinge and Gathered Twigs. I wanted it to represent an old trellis.
