I've been looking at everyone's layouts on here and I've noticed that distressing the corners of the pages is very popular. I've figured out how to do it by using scissors but I've seen it a different way and want to learn how to do it. I recently saw one where the edges almost looked burned, curled up and the very tips of the edges are a different color than the rest of the page. I'd really like to know how it's done. I have searched on youtube to see if there were any tutorials and I can't find any. If anyone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.
I didn't ink the edges on this one, the paper was shaded like that, but I think if you use the distress inks around the edges before you get the paper wet, it should work. Might be a little messy though.

Ah ha - I knew I had a LO where I inked then water distressed. (I'm not trollig for comments, just want to share examples) The mat for the top left photo was inked then watered, then dryed with heat gun.
The paper for my first example was lightweight pp and the photo mat is cardstock. The cardstock is definitely easier to work with, to get to stay where you want it when still wet and it holds its form better when dry.
After reading this post, i started playing around with my destress inks, i have had 2 of them the "tea die" and "dusty concord" i have never played around with them, but I have found my new found love! i also got out my alchol inks and blending solution and played around forever! Oh and watched a lot of youtube videos! I didnt realize how much fun playing around with your new stuff/stuff you dont never use could be lol
