I'm so excited to share this project as a design team member for Mixed Media Supplies featuring some of the newest digital stamps! This is part 1 of a two part project. So much play and FUN!
I'm very happy with the way my "paper fabric" turned out and it was lots of fun to play with.
digital stamps (Mixed Media Supplies)
background stamps (Stampin Up!- retired)
glue and water
Printer (I used a laser printer)
Stamp tissue paper with desired background stamps. Choose and size the digital stamps as desired. Attach tissue paper to some copy paper and run through the printer. Set stamped images aside.
Lightly dampen your muslin with some water. Drop a few drops of ink on the muslin and spread the ink using the brush. You can add additional ink/color if desired. Let dry. Iron to set the color.
In a small container, mix equal parts of glue and water. Using a clean brush, apply a light layer of the glue mixture and add a tissue paper image.. I tore pieces and applied. Then brush over the tissue paper to seal. Make sure to get as many of the bubbles if any out and be sure to brush all the edges as well. Let dry. Apply additional layer as desired. You can add additional color is desired. Let dry. The material may be a little stiff. Play with it, crumple it and the more you handle it the softer it becomes. It is very pliable.
The glue is a bit shiny in this photo since it's still a little wet.
I added additional color after the roses were added. I love my new paper. Stay tuned! I'll be sharing next steps very soon!
