Today is Technique Week over at Hiding In My Craft Room!
For this weeks technique, we are doing Distressing or Antiquing!
There are MULTIPLE ways that you can distress or antique an item. You can sand, ink, rip, cut, crinkle, etc to give an item a distressed or aged look! You can do it to ANY item!!

Here is an up close view of the first bottle. (After I took this picture, I knew it needed something...then came twine)
Here is what all 4 bottle look like after I distressed them a bit!
