How to Distress Chipboard Shapes by Jodi Baune

My Creative Scrapbook design team member Jodi Baune is up today with some tips featuring our October Main kit!

Hello! I want to share with you how I created my distressed chipboard circle....the chipboard circle from Leaky Shed comes in the Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook.
I used the chipboard circle and pattern paper from the kit, gesso, and a file.
I glued the chipboard piece to the backside of my pattern paper. Ranger Glossy Accents is my go-to glue for this type of project because it sets and dries very quickly. Once the glue had dried, I cut away the pattern paper. I don't get to worried about getting it cut perfectly since I plan to distress the edges.
I dry brush gesso in random areas to create a muted and distressed feel.
As you can see, random areas have been touched, but not solid around the circle.
Next, I file around the outer and inner edges of the circle. Some areas I do gently, other a bit rougher. Filing will even out the rough cut edges as well as created a distressed look.
