|Second attempt at distressing this sample - image 51|
|My workbook - images 50 & 51|
I used 5 layers for the sample in image 51 and, although they were all fraying materials the colours have not shown up here. I rubbed the finished sample to distress it but I wonder if the design was too detailed. When I have used this method before I have used straight lines or circles. Another possible idea would to have had the top layer in a different material. I pressed the sample down when scanning so it is possible this did not help either.

I found myself heading for a symmetrical sample in image 48 so decided to make the final layer more random.
