A vintage burlap panel

It’s my turn to post over at the Country View Crafts Updates blog and I chose to use one of those little burlap panels from Tim Holtz.

I have used lots of distress products, Idea-Ology …….
… and some rusting powder.

I would love it if you had the time to pop over to see how I put this one together.

The sun is shining, we have clear blue skies, what a wonderful morning to wake up to and the weekend starts here.
Have fun.

I have updated this post to include all the details - just trying to keep my blog a diary of all my projects.

I have used one of the smallest burlap panels from the shop, they actually come in a pack of 4 containing two x 8cm square panels and two - 9x7 cm panels.

I started by gathering together the elements I thought I would use ......

.... and altering them to suit the vintage feel I wanted to create. The mini tag was distressed and stamped with a small piece of tissue tape added to it. This became the base for the photo.
This frame was stamped with antique linen distress paint using a Tim Holtz stamp.

I also used distress paints on the burlap panel and some walnut stain distress ink when the paints were dry.

I added tissue tape .....

.... and some gesso through the splatter mask.....

.... and then began assembling the pieces onto the panel. 

I used stamps, die-cuts and Idea-Ology together. The label letters created the word ink.

I added some beads and a rusty bell to the side and I also used rusting powder on the spinner and pen nib.
To finish off I used the chit-chat words to tell the story. Who are You?

Have a great weekend and see you back here on Monday with Sue.
