Now on to today's project!
We have Thanksgiving tradition, that after the big dinner, the girls make stamped tags for Christmas packages. This year I decided to change it up and everyone made little 4 x 6" Burlap Panels instead.
I thought I would share mine today because (quite honestly) I love it! I was going to use a Christmas Found Relative but then I saw the little girl with the dog that comes in the Occasions pack and I knew that was the one.
Step one - Pick a Layering Stencil to add texture to the 4 x 6" burlap panel. I picked one of my favorite stencils, Poinsettia.
Flip the stencil over and match up the pattern as best as possible.
Now the fun part! I used my fingertip to randomly add Glacier White paint to the burlap and over part of the poinsettias. You might think, why add white paint at this point when I just colored them red?? But there is something about the white paint that really makes the panel pop! Don't skip this step!
I made a bow with large loops (I will manipulate the loops to be smaller at the end).
If you live in the central Florida area - please stop by Whim So Doodle in St Petersburg on Thursday Dec 2nd for the Holiday Open House. I will be doing a super cute make and take (with my sisters help) and answering questions about the great Tim Holtz products. There will also be food and lots of things to buy!
If you are interested in any of the kits I've been teaching, there are just a few left.
