Eternal Beauty Burlap Panel

With all the focus lately on autumn I have been inspired to stay in that mode and have used one of the small idea-ology burlap panels and kept with a nature inspired theme. These panels are just a little larger than an ATC and there are times when I love creating on smaller substrates just to stretch my creativity and imagination in a different way. I guess we are all like that.

I love the effects of the background and it is a technique I will be teaching at Pickwell Farm in October when we will make four of these panels in a Christmassy theme. (See my classes schedule for details).

You know how I love using the film strip on my projects, this time I have added small flowers from the wallflower paper stash where I also cut the Parcel Post label.

I used remnant rubs on the enamelled tag and edged it with archival ink. Wanting to ‘package’ up the feel of autumn I added linen ribbon and some petaloo flowers.

A piece just for me today, no DT, no workshop, just for me yay.

Another mid week and it’s flying fast. I have a governor’s meeting today so I need to get prepared for that and Friday I am teaching again at The Art of Craft, this time a colourful canvas. So here's wishing you a happy Wednesday, a great end to the week and a huge thank you for stopping by.
