Burlap Panel | Tim Holtz Media Team

Hello everyone, how have you been ? I am back with another tutorial for the Tim Holtz Media Team.

I would like to send HUGE thank yous to the crafters who took the time to write comments on this Blog, each and every one is truly appreciated !

As a paper and mixed media crafter, layers are fascinating and creating with a good mix of materials becomes almost an obsession. For me, learning how to get layering right was a long process as there were many mistakes of trying to sort out a mismatch of products versus style and it took some time to get comfortable with what I made. While I love shabby projects, I am certainly not a girly-girl crafter, usually no ribbons or flowers, and prefer metals over all other supplies. The Idea-ology line is a perfect fit for me ... part grunge, metals and vintage images.

This was a Burlap Panel home decor project I made and one which would be wonderful as a gift with the coming Christmas. The finished size is 6 inches at the top, with the height 7 inches.


A favourite Sizzix Alterations product are Texture Fades as they add so much dimension to any project you make.


More details :


These are the supplies I used :
Distress Paints : Salty Ocean, Antique Linen, Black Soot, Frayed Burlap, Mustard Seed,.
Distress Ink : Gathered Twigs
Distress Glitter : Antique Linen
Surface : Idea-ology Remnant Rub | Salvage Stickers Lost and Found | Vellum Ephemera Expedition.
Embellishments : Idea-ology Label Pull, Word Key, Hitch Fasterner, Trinket Pin, Accoutrement Button, Number Tab
Ranger : Matte Multi Medium | Stickles Gold | Ink Blending Tool
Sizzix : Alterations Texture Fades 657195 Pocket Watches | 656642 Styled labels | 657209 Butterfly Magnetic Movers and Shapers.
Stampers Anonymous : Papillion CMS106 | Hashtags CM 183

In Singapore these supplies are available at Made With Love

To begin, I embossed white cardstock using the Pocket Watch Texture Fades.


This was coloured using Distress Paints, and over the top, a coat of matte medium. You will find this extra layer of sealent will make the paper feel like leather almost.


Using a blending tool, pounce a light layer of Distress Paint Black Soot.


Next I painted the Styled Label wtih Salty Ocean, and stamped the image using Antique Linen paint on the stamp.


I used a partial Label to the right of the embossed piece. At this point I made adjustments to the colours by rubbing in more Distress paints on to the embossed surface.


Next I added a line of Remant Rub Numbers.


And you can see how I built up the layers using Idea-ology Vellum Ephemera and the Word Key. The word Time was adhered to the key, and a button on the handle. The foil Butterfly was die -cut using the Magnetic Movers and Shapers, and Distress Glitter Antique Linen adhered to it using Glossy Accent, and after that inked with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs.


The Label Pull was also altered with Distress Glitter to keep the feel consistant and metal number tab added for more layers.


I never used to like glitter, but lately I've had a change of heart : a little bit of glitter makes the projects pop with a subtle twinkle. Gold is cool these days !
Thank you for coming by my Blog. The process of crafting is satisfying when you remember it's not about techniques headcount, as you can see I don't use difficult or many techniques. Though it helps to know your products and the end results you get when using them, when crafting is done with the feeling of adventure you will enjoy it more !

Happy creating !

Totally Inspired
I run an on-line craftgroup here in the UK and our theme for our swap this month is TIME so when I saw your panel I was totally inspired to make my card. Thanks I love the colours you have used in this piece plus the butterfly. BJ
