Create - Burlap Wall Hanging

I wanted to share with you my very first project using a Burlap Panel. Recently I have been expanding my creative horizons and trying different mediums. I had a lot of fun putting this together. I created this wall hanging to remind myself that creating and creativity is not impossible. You just need to believe in yourself and find yourself through art.

I wanted to go with the theme of Create and I was able to put a perfect message onto my Art.
Believe in yourself 
and be the best version of you
The Impossible is often the Untried

The last sentence is a stamp from Tim Holtz. I use it often as it is so True. In art, nothing is impossible. You just have to try.

Here is what I did.

I wrapped the Burlap Panel with Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap and used Glue N Seal to hold it in place.  Then I just started decorating. The stamp set I used is called Visual Artistr Clear Stamp. It has some great sayings.  The key is also from Tim Holtz called Word Keys. I have used these on several of my projects. Love them!

The word CREATE was put together using Alpha Parts - Ransom. I distressed it using Distress Paint called Forrest Moss. The fun sentiment was put together using Chit Chat Words stickers. I also used cheese cloth for the first time to give it some texture. 

This fantastic clock was another sticker from Tim Holtz called Salvage Stickers - Lost & Found. I found the clock arms in a discount bin at Michaels. 

I added some stamped images, gems,baubles,trinket pin along with some other embellishments to finish it off. It was a lot of fun to make. 

I recently created a Valentine's Day one, but you will have to wait until next month to see that one. LOL!

Well, I sure hope that you like it and certainly appreciate you stopping by. I have listed all the supplies below. If you have never made a burlap panel wall hanging, you should give it a try, at least once. They are a lot of fun to put together.
