We're distressed at Practical Scrappers!

Well, we're not really distressed, but we ARE showcasing some great scrapbook pages that were submitted for our call for distressing on layouts. Check them out here for some great inspiration!

To get the distressed look on my page below, I lightly misted the background paper with water, then crumpled it up really tight, and then flattened it back out for some great texture. I also roughed up the edges of the green pp strip, and then added some zigzag stitching all around the page. All the pp's are from Echo Park, who is quickly becoming one of my new favorite paper lines!
