Hi girls,
I would like to do some faux leather in my scrapbook. My problem is that the only technique I know use masking tape (and it's not acid free...)

Another way to do Faux Leather... ??? if it is acid free.

Spray "Make it Suede" on CS
spray wth water; crumble carefully and let it dry
Spray with antiquing spray; let it dry or sponge with ink
Tear edges

Well there is the faux lesther tech done with cardstock.
!. cut cs to desired size.
2. Then you will use the bone folder to kindof break up the edges. (you need to break the fibers up in the cs.)
3. Then you will manipulate thecs in your hand, slightly crumpling and scrubbing between your hands( for lack of a better term--just like when your kids get a stain in their clathes and we "scrubb" the stain out with our hands)
4. when you think the fibers are broke down enough--you can tell because the paper starts to separate-- you will then ever so carefully take hold of both front and back of cs and pull apart to separate them. The result is then a leather or suade feel to the inside part of the cs. Sorry if these directions are confusing, it is harder to explain thatnit is to do.
