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.
