Having Fun with Burlap

I recently got the 6X6 Burlap Paper stack by MME and decided to play with it. I tried different materials and techniques on it and I have some conclusions.

I sprayed the first page with color sprays. I have to say the shimmer is only slightly showing because the burlap is basically a type of fabric with large holes that absorbs all the shimmer. However paper glues to it with no problems. Foe some reason burlap reminded me of vintage so I embellished all the pages with a vintage look patterned paper scraps.

The second page was stenciled with acrylic paint. I recommend using a large stencil pattern because a smaller pattern will not be visible.

The last page was sprayed and finger colored with acrylic paint. I also added more paint with Gelatos. I cut a burlap with a Large Sizzix die, which worked beautifully. However I also tried cutting the burlap with a Spellbinders die and that didn’t work at all.

Make sure to watch the step by step video tutorial to see how much fun I had playing with the burlap papers and how I did all the techniques.

Have fun creating!
