Enjoy the Journey - Burlap Panels

Happy Mother's Day everyone!  Hope you are having a wonderful day with your families!

I have a tutorial today on the Sizzix blog, hope you join me there!  Here's a sneak peek:

After die cutting the Sizzix Tapered Fringe strip on this project, I was inspired by the shape to use it on these two tags:

Tutorial - Sizzix Tapered Fringe Tags

I die cut two tags using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Tag die and the Tapered Fringe.  

Next, I glued the fringe to the tags, cutting the fringe apart.

I completely covered the tag with black crackle paint.

Now comes the fun part!  Using Viva Colour's Inka Gold Metallic Rub first and then to highlight the colour, Silks Acrylic Glaze, I applied the colour.  Love this metallic rub!

I just rubbed a very small amount on my tag using my finger.  You can't tell in the photo, but it has a beautiful shimmer to it.  

I added a small amount of the Silks glaze for extra colour.  On this tag, I added a Tim Holtz rub-on in the corner.

After the tags were dry, I added in my embellishments.  With this one, I die-cut flowers from Sizzix's Tattered Flower Garland Decorative Strip with very thin chipboard.  I painted these also with Black Crackle paint and then glued to my tag.  Once they were on my tag, I applied the metallic rub to these also.  I added a Tim Holtz metal embellishment and ribbon to finish it off.

With this tag, I die-cut a patterned piece of paper with the Sizzix On the Edge Torn Notebook die and cut out the number one using Sizzix's Movers and Shapers Number Set.  I die cut the number one out of chipboard, painted, then applied a rub-on to that.  I glued it to the tag, matching the negative space in my paper.  I also cut out Sizzix's Mini Pocket Watch out of chipboard, applied the Metallic Rub and then attached a Tim Holtz compass coin embellishment to the middle (it fits perfect inside the watch).  Add in a few more embellishments, ribbon, and you are done!
I love the effect the fringe die has when you use it this way.  I need to look at my other dies and see what they would look like using this technique!

Hope you have a great day,
