1" Art Squares - White


Another lot of 1" Art Squares!! Because the monthly technique on Fiber Art Friends is paper, I thought I would make the base using a paper technique. I crumpled up white tissue paper and fused it onto white felt. I then painted it with a metallic white fabric paint, sprinkled silver/white embossing powder over it and zapped it with the heat gun. You can't really see the texture it's made on the photo, but it looks quite nice (if I do say so myself). I zig zagged around the squares, and then added the embellishments. (Not a very good photo)....

Did your machine cope with going through those layers O.K.? Nice to see you can do plain old white just as good as your purpley ones. :)

Nice. I haven't painted tissue paper but I know it can stand lots of abuse when it's fused down. Must try it. Thanks Dianne.
