Together Burlap Panel by Richele Christensen
Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Please join me in a warm welcome back to special guest Richele Christensen! She’s made this gorgeous burlap panel that would be a fabulous gift, don’t you think?! Read on to see step by step photos of the creation of this project, and enjoy!
Hello, friends, it’s Richele. Today I’d like to share a Burlap Panel using some of the new Tim Holtz Alteration Dies from Sizzix. I love dies, they can be used is so many different ways.
1. Die cut Funky Foliage from Rangers Watercolor Cardstock.
2. Color the flowers and leaves by applying Distress Oxide Inks directly to Glass Media Mat, pick up ink with Waterbrush, color Funky Foliage and dry with heat tool. I used Oxides Inks for a soft and shabby look.
3. Ink edges with Distress Oxide Ink on an Ink Blending Tool.
4. Mist foliage with Distress Mica Spray and Dry with a heat tool. The shimmer will show once the spray dries.
5. Shape flowers with Sizzix Paper Sculpting Tools. I like the smallest stylist for these flowers. Place flowers on molding mat and apply pressure with the sculpting tool to create dimension.
6. Mist both sides of Kraft cardstock with water, emboss with Botanical 3-D Texture Fade running through Vagabond machine twice. Use only one cutting pad as the 3-D Texture Fade is thick.
7. Apply Distress Oxide Ink directly to raised areas.
8. Brush on Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Powder and buff off excess.
9. Distress edges with Paper Distresser and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink on an Ink Blending Tool.
10. Sand and ink the Baseboard Frame, then brush of Perfect Pearls Powder, buff off excess and lightly mist with water to set powder.
11. Ink edges of Burlap Panel with Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool.
12. Cut Memoranda Paper Stash in several sizes, sew around the edges, use Paper Distresser and Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool to Distress edges.
13. Adhere layers to Burlap Panel using foam tape.
14. Adhere Baseboard Frame with Distress Collage Medium. Tie Jute String around panel with a bow.
15. Color Paper Dolls with Distress Markers. Color Marker directly on Paper Doll and blend color with a cotton swab.
16. Apply Gold Metallic Mixative and Blending Solution to felt and color metal pieces.
17. Adhere Funky Foliage with Collage Medium and foam tape.
18. Adhere Paper Doll over the frame with foam tape. Adhere Small Talk, Adornment Key and Story Stick with Distress Collage Medium.
I hope you will love the Funky Foliage Thinlits Set as much as I do!
Thank you and happy crafting!
