Fabric Papers

Orange and yellow acrylic paints, gold paint, and dried leaves.

Purple and bronze metallic paints, metallic threads and dried leaves.

Orange, yellow and bronze metallic paints, metallic threads, and dried leaves.

Blue metallic and pearlescent white paints, dried flowers and leaves, and silver mica powder.

Fuschia and orange acrylic paints, and dried leaves.

Green, orange and bronze metallic paints, and dried flowers and leaves.

These 10" x 12" fabric papers were made with muslin as its base, and white tissue paper, which were painted with metallic and acrylic paints. Dried flowers, leaves, cotton and metallic threads were also used as embellishments.

Making fabric paper is fun and easy with endless possibilities. Projects go quicker when you have an array of different colors ready for use. These will be used to make collages and ATCs.
