Tutorial -How to create a faux leather texture and look



Hello, hello my crafty buds.  I know.......long time no see, eh?  I've been a bloomin' disaster lately!  Lol.  And I can't really think of any excuse other than........"Hi....I'm Mrs Disaster Pants, nice to meet you".  Time just seems to have disappeared of late!

I haven't made much of anything lately.  My brother, Jay and his lovely FiancĂ©e Karen have set a date to get married next June............WOOWHOOOOO!  Karen has said that she might like to make her own invitations.  So I have offered my crafty mitts to her.  As I pretty much have everything she needs here, I've said that we can have a play day with some designs.......Yippeee!  I can't wait.  I'm so excited for her, lol.  I pretty much made EVERYTHING for our wedding and I loved every minute of it.  And our day was perfect.....for us anyway, lol.  I can't believe we just celebrated 2 years of marriage this month.  Anyway, if we have a play around with some designs she can decide if she wants to make them or not.  That way if she hates the idea of making them, she won't be out any expenses with buying all the materials. That would be such a waste of their money.  And we all know how tight money is when organising a wedding.  So this way she can save a few pennies by playing with my toys first, teehee.

Soooooooo.......Ive been designing a few wee invites and favour ideas for her, so at least when she does come round to mine to have a play Karen will at least have something to look at and compare to designs and ideas she wants.

Sadly though..........I can't show you any of the designs just yet, Sorry!

But all is not lost.  When I made my Expedition Journal, see here a lot of people asked me could I do a tutorial on how I made the book look like proper old cracked leather.  I know its taken ages for me to get it done, but here it is finally.  If you have any questions or queries, please comment below or send me a message through the contact button above.


 I hope you try this technique and if you do, please let me know so I can come over to see your wonderful work too.

Ps....for all of you who have popped by asking if Im ok and where I've been.....THANK YOU.  I'm fine and dandy.  I just haven't had much time of late for blogging or crafting lately.

See you all soon.  Toodles Noodles,  Loops xx
