Dreamweaver Thursday: Rusty and Rustic Distressing

You’ve probably seen this fascinating video from Andy Skinner for Stampendous at least a couple of times this week, but just in case you missed it, we’re featuring it once again! Since this is our Dreamweaver Thursday post, we have a warm, yet frosty, project created by team member, Pam Hornschu, that uses parts of Andy Skinner’s faux rust technique, some great products from our craft partners, and the perfect Dreamweaver Stencil to highlight this rusty and rustic design. We even have step-outs so that you can follow along…


Supplies: Dreamweaver Heart Ornaments stencil, 3/4 Stencil Brush, Palette Knife; DecoArt® Snow-Tex, Media Fluid Acrylics (Titan Buff, Quinacridone Gold, Paynes Grey); Art Anthology Stone Effects Dimensional Medium (Brick); Copic® Sketch Markers (E29, E31, G09, G28, BG75); May Arts® Cotton Striped Ribbon; Loew-Cornell® Sanding Sticks; Zip Dry by Beacon Adhesives®; galvanized wire, pliers; black foam core board (one piece 3 1/2 x 6″, and one 5 x 7 1/2″); 1/2″ wide paintbrush

  1. WOW – Pam’s plaque is AMAZING, it looks SO REAL – how EXCITING to create such FABULOUS textures and colours – THANK YOU for the tutorial!!!
    Looking forward to LEARNING MORE about the AWESOME world of DISTRESSING!!!


  2. Holy Shazam!! I knew today was going to be amazing but my mind is blown!!! Totally amazing creations by all the designers!! I am dying to get into my craft room and create after seeing all of today’s posts! Going to have to wait till hubby gets home so he can watch granddaughter so I can lose myself in creating though!! Jenna (granddaughter) is 3 and loves to work in my craft room right beside me and we will probably head in there soon but I can’t lose myself when she is there with me so I don’t do serious creating with her yet. Maybe next year! LOL Thanks for the awesome hop and inspiration!!! See you tomorrow for the grand finale!!


  3. The DT did an amazing job today. the plaque in this post is so pretty. Always love butterflies.
    it’s been a great week.
