This was an extremely difficult hop topic for me but I just can’t pass up a good scrapbooking challenge! Ã‚Â Here’s what I did with my fabric:
First, I had to find some fabric. Ã‚Â I knew it was in my stash somewhere but it’s not something I use regularly (hence, Use Your Stash!). Ã‚Â I found some that was leftover from the Necklace Kit (retired, but part of the Sarita Textiles). Ã‚Â 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. Ã‚Â Any liquid adhesive that dries clear will work for this project (my favorite isÃ‚Â Liquid Glass). Ã‚Â I “drew” the outline of my flower directly onto my paper with theÃ‚Â Liquid Glass. Ã‚Â I cut 1 1/4″ strips of fabric, folded in half hotdog style, and twisted. Ã‚Â 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. Ã‚Â I’m going to just leave it until I decide. Ã‚Â It can either be a card front or added to a page.
Now hop on over toÃ‚Â Shirley Ross!
