Distress This: A subtle use of color and layers!

Recently I have been asked how to create the monochromatic looking layouts that I do, with bits of paint peeking through in a distressed fashion... and I thought that there was no time like the present to show you how I create a layout or canvas using a very subtle color palette, lots of whites, with hints of color.
Here is a peeky at what we will be working on...

We will be using all kinds of texture, mists, paint pots, and more!Click on the video to watch and play along with me. You will need a canvas, a photo, strips of neutral colored fabric, molding paste, a mask, bits and baubles, and of course, your favorite color Shimmerz paints... 

:) We are cruisin' on into that new year, aren't we? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you an amazing 2012!
