This week the Stampendous team is Playing with Paste! Dreamweavers paste is awesome for adding texture to cards and altered projects!
I started by painting a bottle with Deco Art Bright Lime Green Patio Paint. Next I glued on cheesecloth in random spots. I used the stencil from the Wired set, to add Matte Black Embossing Paste to the bottle randomly. When the paste was dry, I spray painted the entire bottle black with spray paint.

Today's layout features Clear Scrap and Crafters Companion! I used a Clear Scrap blank 12 x 12 acrylic sheet and woven pattern paper strips to create a faux lattice effect.
To create the lattice effect, simply weave 1/2 inch strips of 18 inch pattern paper or cardstock. When you are finished, trim and adhere the ends to the acrylic layout. Now take 1/8 inch strips of pattern paper or cardstock and frame the edge of the layout.
I colored the acrylic Pennant embellishment with an alcohol marker. To create the distressed look, I put a bit of alcohol down on my craft mat, dabbed a piece of burlap into the alcohol and then placed it on the colored pennant for approximately 5 seconds. The alcohol with lift the color on the pennant. I painted white acrylic paint on the back of the pennants to make the coloring pop.
I used the same technique to create a distressed look on the die cut.
