A Vintage Journey - Destination Inspiration - Can You Feel It?

I'm posting my very first A Vintage Journey Destination Inspiration post today so I hope you will drop by there!!  I titled my post "Can You Feel It" - as I am exploring using felt with different Tim Holtz products (inks, stains, dies, paints).
Here's a peek at the 3 projects I made using felt.
 
I decorated  a 4" x 6"  Burlap Panel with Spray Stain and Embossing paste.  I adhered my felt pine cones and branches around the edges and  added Letter Press words that I embossed.
I decorated an 8" x 4 1/4" felt purse that I purchased at Joann's, using tan felt, the Winter Wonder Die, Lattice Work and Dot Fade Stencils, Peacock Feathers Distress Spray Stain and Picket Fence Distress Paint.
My 3rd project is a 5" x 7" burlap bag.  I used Tim's Frayed Fabric Technique for the base of this project - found on page 66 of Compendium of Curiosities Vol III - the Ornate Frame die, an old Sizzix Heart die, Heart Charm, Ring Fastener, Arrow, Stripes Stencil and Picket Fence Spray Stain.
Please stop by my post at the A Vintage Journey blog for lots more photos and tutorials showing my experimentation with felt! 

And don't forget the AVJ Special Numbers challenge going on right now!
