Technique Thursday: Distressed Glue Background Technique

This week on Paper Crafter’s Library’s Technique Thursday Sophia shows us how to create a Distressed Glue Background. On the Oh Snap tag, Sophia applies the glue to a white cardstock, using a paint brush, for a nice smooth look.  For the tag with the clock, Sophia applies the glue to a piece of designer paper, using a texture tool, resulting in a distressed, rough background.  

For those of you unfamiliar with Technique Thursday , this is where we create and feature projects for our Club 52 online class (our year-long technique club), which our Paper Crafter’s Library members also access as a free benefit of their membership.

If you’re interested in checking out what we’ve covered so far, you can look at our Club 52 page. If you’re a technique junkie and would like to learn new techniques (as many of them are ones we have created), or revisit old ones – you can still sign up from this page – you’ll be able to access all 48 weeks we’ve done so far, plus the remaining weeks, and your access to the classroom will last for 15 months.

If you are not already receiving our weekly email newsletter, make sure you take a minute to sign up from the top right sidebar of our blog. Every Monday we create an exclusive project with a video tutorial for all of our newsletter subscribers and Paper Crafter’s Library members. So make sure that you sign up now, so that you don’t miss out!
