Happy

Happy hump day all! Today I am back with another layout using several pieces of fabric and the ribbon from this months' kit! I love working with fabric because it adds such a homey feel to my projects. I don't know how to explain it... it just looks so good!

 

Using ribbon or fabric on projects doesn't need to be complicated... And although, it may look intimidating to use, it is not as scary as it looks. I used scissors that I have on my desk that I use ONLY for fabric. Do not use scissors that you normally cut paper with. If you do, you will not get a clean cut and your ends will fray. One of my favorite adhesives is Fabri-Tac. This glue works WONDERFUL with fabrics. Seriously, once you apply the glue to the fabrics then place it on the cardstock... it's not going anywhere. Trust me.

 

Once the glue dried, I matted the photo collage on a few different pieces of patterned paper then adhered it to the center of the layout. I splashed some mist on to the layout then added the chipboard pieces using foam squares.

 

I used thread and a button from my stash to add to the center of the butterfly to make it pop.



I love the chipboard sentiments! I added a few pieces to help frame the collage then stapled the heart chipboard to the bottom of the collage, using a tiny heart to off set the larger heart.

 



Thanks so much for visiting today! Are you ready to pull out your fabric and create something beautiful with it? I promise, it's not that scary once you start cutting into these beauties!
