Somewhat Distressed....


....No!! Not me! I located my scrapping mojo hidden under a new scrapping technique - I'm as happy as a pig in...well, you know...what pigs are happy in ;)

My challenge LO however has been distressed to within an inch of it's life. So, I conclude that every article I've ever read about distressing techniques is true - it's Addictive! Once I'd started I just couldn't stop. All the bits got the treatment. The background cardstock was wet, crumbled, ironed and sanded. The photo mat and patterned papers were sanded and inked. The journalling strip was inked and chalked. The title was done using a mask and chalks (and some repo xyron tape) and the stamps weren't full inked so there are bits missing.

It's a Scrapbook Inspirations freebie bonanza on this page - free papers from Rob and Bob Studio and free flower stamps (from some time last year). The journaling reads:

Children Are:

Amazing............acknowledge them
Believable.........trust them
Childlike............allow them
Divine...............honor them
Energetic..........nourish them
Fallible..............embrace them
Gifts.................treasure them
Here now.........be with them
Innocent...........delight with them
Joyful................appreciate them
Kindhearted......learn from them
Lovable..........cherish them
Magical.............fly with them
Noble................esteem them
Open minded.....respect them
Precious............value them
Questioners.......encourage them
Resourceful.......support them
Spontaneous.....enjoy them
Talented............believe in them
Unique...............affirm them
Vulnerable.........protect them
Whole................recognize them
Xtra special.........celebrate them
Yearning.............notice them
Zany...................laugh with them

I figured it was about time I actually did a LO for one of my own challenges anyway. So there you go. Now.....what new techniques can I find to play with for the next one......
