Tutorial - Distressing papers - Part 1

Hi everyone

As you all know - I distress almost every card I make...

This is just a simple and quick Tutorial (Will update it with more samples later)

Step One:
I recommend Tim Holtz' Paper Distresser - got 7 knives 
(and you don't cut yourself, even if you tried to)
Then you get your paper - and start distressing
back and forth

Until your paper looks like this:
...here you'll see my second paper:
NB: move your hands along with where you distress 
Then you have better controll
And here I got my two pieces togehter
...It's a good start for my card 
A smaller piece
to match my Magnolia "tag"

Hope you liked this tutorial
- a bit step by step :)

Hugs, Anja
