Ugly Paper Tutorial

 Tape pieces of patterned paper to background with masking tape (I glue sticked mine, too)
Gesso over all of it.
Apply distress inks over gesso and heat set.
Dry brush acrylics over the ink.

And add those pictures! This layout was for a challenge to use old product over on Scrap In Style. All of this happens to be really old product, but I've always loved those robot stickers, so I'm glad I finally used one. I did add some oil pastels just to punch it up a bit more. Time to recycle those ugly papers!
