Paper Fabric

Jan here with a fun project featuring the NEW Mixed Media Supplies Digital stamps!  Loved the rose and knew that I had to do something fun with it.  This is part 1 of a 2 part project. 
You'll need:
lightweight muslin
tissue paper
digital stamps  (Mixed Media Supplies)
background stamps (Stampin Up!- retired)
inks (dye)
Soft brush
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.

n 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. 

 I added some additional color after the roses were added.  I can't wait to do the next steps in this project... you can find those details on my blog in the next day or so.  Stay tuned for more fun projects from the Design Team.  You won't be disappointed! 


  1. Thanks, Peggy. There's still so much to explore and ways to play with paper fabric. Can't wait to do some more after the holidays!
