For the above I used: various sizes of hexagons including the photos (hand done...so not so even), tags/5+ buttons and twine, paper clips, 7+ patterned paper and then I used my hexagon template and glimmer misted over the pp and I tore the edge of one paper, but not sure if that is considered distressing...so I also inked the edges of the layout.
Here is the original:
7+ printed papers
tags, 5+buttons & twine- all 3
varied hexagon shapes including photos!
masks/stencils & distressing (masks can be used with the moulding paste)
