Canvas Corp. Stretched Burlap

Jamie here,

I am kind of in love with stretched Burlap.....I created this wall hanging using Canvas Corp.s 18 x 18 stretched Burlap. The burlap made it easy to stitch, and painted up perfectly. It gives a warm feel. The burlap lends it's own appeal to the project.

I used a Sharpie Paint pen to draw out the letters and then painted them in with white paint. The house was constructed with a Canvas tag and a small piece of burlap. The star on the door is by Melissa Frances. I used Golden's Coarse Pumice Gel to add texture to the ground and then sprayed it with Tattered Angels Chalkboard spray. The flowers are made with a pin and Prima flowers.

The roof is constructed out of cardboard and vintage sheet music. I colored the star using Cowboy Glimmer Glaze. The chimney is covered with micro beads.

A little Tip if you notice your stretched burlap loosening. Just grip some of the slack out of it around the frame and add a couple of extra staples where you grip the extra slack at and it's good as new. Only added four staples and never loosened again. Burlap is a looser knit material than canvas so you will have a little slack.
