I decided to do one piece at a time instead of doing various techniques on all of them at the same time. Here is piece number one. Kind of a shiny piece.
The first thing I did was to make some painted fusible sheets. These are great to add to a piece. I learned how to do this on DMTV, Design Matters TV. This is a pay show on the internet developed by Linda and Laura Kemshall. I have been a member for 5 years. Here is a free show demonstrating how and why to make painted fusible sheets. It's the third show down.
The various fusible products act differently. Steam-a-Seam comes out with little dots which I don't care for.
I got tired painting water on the sheets and just dumped them in the sink with the water running.
The paper will curl into a tube so I had to use rocks to hold the paper flat.
I also found some old papers
I ended up not using them in piece #1.
I used my favorite sponge to make squares in purple ProFab paint (ProChemical and Dye)
At the top is a hot glue "stamp" I made. It's just sitting there waiting its turn
ProBrite Rust colored fabric paint. I'm going shiny!!
This is a jar of Neutral Probite Paint - crushed mica in a neutral base
Foil Adhesive rolled on to the fabric as a last layer with one of my favorite roller stamps. As soon as it dries, I will apply the foil.
It looks much better and much blingier in person.
