When the Lad was in high school, he had to make a book of poetry for his honors English class. He made the cover by decopaging collage photos front and back. But he wanted to the pages to look antiqued, so thanks to Google, we tea stained every page, dried them in the oven, and then singed each one all around the perimeter with a lighter. Talk about a lot of work and some very singed fingers!
This antiquing is much easier. It's all about using Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White, and then using a few neutral shades, in this case, Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake, go give it a faded and highlighted effect. The edge is sponged in Crumb Cake, and then I rubbed the sharp edge of my paper snips around the perimeter of the oval, roughing up the edges to give it a worn and torn look.
