How to Create faux Leather Paper

Hi dear crafty friends!

I love techniques. I love finding new ways to use old unwanted or unneeded things, namely recycling and reusing. Today I want to share with you How to Create faux Leather Paper. I used this technique to create the pages in the TP mini album that I recently sold.



How to Create faux Leather Paper

This fun project started one day as I realized how many TP rolls we throw away all the time. I really wanted to do something with them. I’ve seen TP mini albums before but I wanted to do something different and incorporate a little mixed media, techniques and messiness. I also wanted a different look for the pages. So I came up with this easy and fabulous technique!

I transformed all TP rolls to pocket pages that look like leather and believe it or not kind of feel like leather too. For the technique I used you only need water, Glycerin and a spritzer. You wet the rolls, crumple them a few times and then ink them and you have that leather look. I also embossed some of the pages for extra texture.




Here's the video on how to create these pages!
