Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Fabulous Fabric

This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Nikki DeWitt.

This was an extremely difficult hop topic for me but I just can’t pass up a good scrapbooking challenge!  Here’s what I did with my fabric:

Fabric Flower by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Sarita TextilesIvy Lane Paper Packet, Liquid Glass, Basic Grey Magnetic Mat,

First, I had to find some fabric.  I knew it was in my stash somewhere but it’s not something I use regularly (hence, Use Your Stash!).  I found some that was leftover from the Necklace Kit (retired, but part of the Sarita Textiles).  I wanted to use it with some of the newer paper so I went to my current scraps where I chose a scrap of Ivy Lane.  Any liquid adhesive that dries clear will work for this project (my favorite is Liquid Glass).  I “drew” the outline of my flower directly onto my paper with the Liquid Glass.  I cut 1 1/4″ strips of fabric, folded in half hotdog style, and twisted.  I adhered this twisted fabric onto the line of glue and used my magnetic mat to hold in place as I worked.
Because I was lazy, rather than cutting off the excess fabric that I had left, I just squished it together and used it for the center of my flower (didn’t turn out too shabby! LOL!)
My plans for this were a card but now that it’s finished, I am thinking a scrapbook page element.  I’m going to just leave it until I decide.  It can either be a card front or added to a page.

Now hop on over to Shirley Ross!

    Cool, Wendy. Fabric really is more friendly than I think it is sometimes.

    i like how you twisted the fabric to make a differant kind of flower. It looks really easy and will not bulk up a scrap page to much. nicely done!
