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:
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Sarita Textiles, Ivy 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!
