Antiquing Foil for altered mats.....

A great way to add texture to a special mat in your multi media My Crush book!
Since we are just using household aluminum foil, cover cardstock
with foil before embossing to make mat thicker.
Choose an embossing folder with flexibility of placement, if it is too long
for project, like a My Crush book, just put it at an angle and cut even with the top edge.
We used black gesso for our class, but you can also try adding colored distressing paint
or acrylic paint of any type for a variety of effects.
