Leather play with PLAID!

Good morning!
Its Thursday again and am so so excited today for two, its a masculine project that I am sharing with you today and two, I have a detailed video tutorial about the FAUX LEATHER TEXTURE . I hope you will take the time to see the entire video and try your hands on this technique.

Here are products that I have used for this...

The PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT for this week is The Folkart BLENDING GEL and ofcourse I have used a whole lot of PLAID products, their chalk paints, Liquid leaf, Modge podge Dimensional magic and also the Satin Varnish.

I have altered a packaging box as always and here a few pictures of the completed project.

Here is the you tube link for the tutorial.

I am eagerly awaiting your feedback to this tutorial and I hope you do try this simple technique using the blending gel! Now, no more worries for making masculine gifts, lol!

Until my next Thursday,
Happy crafting and recycling,


  1. That's a really cool leathery look - didn't expect to see it in blue! Fabulous.

  2. It is fabulous box for your hubby's watches Rupa, so much lovely detail and texture you added to it. Also thank you for the video too! I now have some ideas for some boxes I have hung onto to upcycle and because of your lovely video I know where to start and how to add texture with the paper Karen x
