After I picked up the Distress Oxides in my local craft store, I just had to break them open and create some beautiful backgrounds. I smooshed the ink onto my craft mat, spritzed some water on top and then dragged several tags through it. After they were dry, I repeated these steps till I had the texture I wanted. When I was done with the tags, I spotted my art journal and did the same thing to create a background page.
The “World of reality” sentiment was the perfect fit. To make it pop a little more, I outlined it it with a white gel pen.
Now I adhered them onto the page and was happy. I really enjoy the oxides, because they are bright but not too much. The chalky finish is exactly what I like. And after all, Distress Oxide and So Suzy Stamps are the perfect match 😀
