Hi guys. This has got to be my favourite piece I’ve posted on here so far, mainly because its comprised of lots of different Tim Holtz products and I seriously love that guy. It all started when I purchased some Burlap panels and wanted to try one out immediately, thankfully I’m really happy with the outcome. I began by applying a small amount of texture paste to the Burlap panel with a pallet knife, waited for it try and added some Ground Espresso Distress paint.
Once this had dried I began placing some various pieces of Tim Holtz ephemera from the Expedition, Thrift shop and Emporium packs. Some I stuck flat to the panel using my Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue and I then started to build it up using sticky foam pads. The final paper piece I added was picture from the Tim Holtz Found Relatives which I fussy cut around so you could still see every layer behind it. Of course, I distressed every layer before attaching it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give it more definition.
The final touch was adding some embellishments which I painted with Ground Espresso Distress paint. I then added a piece of string going all the way around the panel, underneath some of the top layers held up by sticky foam pads.
This was a really fun project to make, lots of layers, very vintage, loads of Tim Holtz products. Perfect! Why don’t you give it a try and send me some pic’s on Facebook? I would love to see your take on it. Happy crafting!
