I painted the burlap panel with Tim Holtz Distress Paints, applying the colors in all different directions and spritzed the panel with mists of water so the colors would soften and blend together. I used Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar and Red Barn distress paints.
After the paint was dry, I used Ranger Texture Paste and with a Dina Wakley Palette Knife I added the Tim Holtz Flourish Stencil to the top and side of the panel.
I cut out Tim Holtz Trellis Frameworks Die out of chipboard to add to the panel.
After the trellis framework was cut out, I cut it into smaller pieces to lay out onto the panel and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I also inked the edges of the painted burlap panel with the same ink.
After all the trellis pieces for the project were inked, I adhered them with hot glue to the painted panel.
I laid out the large embellishments on the panel where I wanted to adhere them with hot glue and moved them around until I was happy with their placement. I used a Tim Holtz Metal Timepiece Clock Face, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Game Spinner, Tim Holtz Sizzix Mini Love Struck Die, one of the images from Tim Holtz Paper Stash Kraft Resist Seasonal images, and an image from my stash. I used my Tim Holtz Distresser Tool to distress the edges of the images and inked the distressed edges with vintage photo distress ink.
I laid out the rest of the embellishments to see where I wanted to adhere them to the panel. By laying them out, I can get a better feel for how they will look when paired together and where I want to place them on the project. I added Petaloo Red Glitter Stars, Petaloo Burlap Poinsettias, and
Here, I laid the embellishments on the panel until I was satisfied with the layout and adhered them to the panel using hot glue.
