    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Monique asks: "What adhesive do I use to attach burlap to a card?"
    A: Since burlap is thick you have a lot of options for adhesive. A strong double sided tape would work. A thin layer of tacky glue would work as well (with any wet adhesive you'd want to lay a book or large acrylic block over the panel until it dries). An iron-on adhesive (also called double-sided fusible interfacing) is another option if you're concerned about fraying edges - you can find it in the sewing section of any craft store.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Nicole loves the Resourceful Art Journaling tutorial : "Resourcefulness rocks! This is a great tutorial with the reuse of so many items normally tossed. Using the baby wipes as an embellishment is genius! Now I won't throw them away. Thank you so much for sharing these ideas!"
