Default WT850 - Go Faux (6/24/21)

Hello everyone...Cathy here with this week's Ways to Use It Challenge.

Today we are going to "Go Faux!" There are so many ways to make something look real...in fact, when I typed "Faux" into the search box on the Tutorial page of SCS, 49 results appeared. Here are just a few you may not have tried yet, but feel free to do your own search if none of these appeal to you.

Faux Tile Backsplash
Faux Diecut Inlay
Faux Patina
Faux Letterpress

Faux Barn Board
Color Wash Faux Bleach

Faux Tearing
Faux Quilt Candle

These are just a few...can't wait to see all the faux projects in the gallery!


Check the thumbnails below to see more samples for your inspiration created by Lisa, Sabrina, Jayne and Toni!

Here's a link to the WT850 Go Faux Gallery.

I could run with this challenge for a LONG time. My personal frequent favourites are Faux Patina and Faux Stamped Leather, but I went with linen and stitching.

WT850 The Best Talks
Cathy I had fun on this one. I used the tile backsplash technique. You can't see it very well in the picture, but it is there.
