Welcome back to the Green House on the Hill. I am happy that you have stopped by to see what is going on here today. In keeping with my theme this week of using fabric, I decided to play with adding some color to my fabric. Here is what I started with…
And here is a list of what I used…
My Creatopia fitted with a scalloped blade (you could just use a plain old pair of scissors or a pair of decorative edged scissors)
Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. I ended up using a few colors; lemon meringue and SWAK.
A piece of muslin I had sitting around from an old sewing project.
An old box, cut in half, that I use for containing my mess when I spray stuff!
The Creatopia by Xyron is a pretty cool tool. It comes with a basic platform. By switching out various cartridges, you can make it laminate, apply adhesive, cut or emboss. There are probably a few other things this tool can do that I am forgetting. I used the cutting attachment, fitted with a scalloped blade. I ran a double thickness of muslin through it and it cut a nice scalloped border.
I cut about a 2 inch strip from the scalloped edge of the muslin. Next, I pulled out my spraying box and a few bottles of Glimmer Mist and sprayed the fabric.
I sprayed one piece yellow and the other one pink. The Glimmer Mist adds a little bit of color and some sparkle to the fabric. Who doesn’t love a little bit of sparkle!
Finally, I scrunched up the fabric to add some texture and left it to dry. Tomorrow, I plan to add it to a scrapbook page, so stop back tomorrow to see what I come up with!
