fabric fusion paper…

 in addition to special and inspiring friends on line I am grateful  to be able to spend time with local artists and friends who are extremely generous and talented too…

recently I enjoyed revisiting a paper on fabric fusion technique that I first learned from the talented Beryl Taylor here

Magpie's Nest Fusion Fabric Paper supplies

 assorted thin papers with various color ways in mind (those pretty napkins and tissues you’ve been saving work beautifully) …

Magpie's Nest Fabric Fusion PaperI arranged pieces on cotton fabric brushing with a glue and water mix and ending with a thin layer of tissue on the top adding diluted paints too to some pieces…Magpie's Nest Fabric Fusion Paper backs

on the pink piece above the foundation “fabric” is a used dryer sheet and it worked nicely (underneath it you can see some of the  fabric backs of my other pieces)…

  1. I love that the cup design goes all the way around and even onto the handle. So sweet 🙂

  2. Oh wow. That’s a gorgeous cup.

    I’ve made fabric paper several times, and each time I do, I’m unhappy with the results. I think I’ll try using nothing but fabric with tissue and napkins. My fabric paper has always been too stiff and thick for my taste. Yours, on the other hand, looks beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely mug AND your fusion paper for T this Tuesday.

  3. That truly is one of the loveliest mugs I have seen. Your fabric fusion papers are beautiful! I haven’t done this in a long time-but I have at least one of Beryl’s books with this technique in it. You always tempt me with your art and revisiting techniques-I just need more hours in a day to get to it all:):) Happy T day-I hope you’re having a nice day-it is gorgeous here in PA this morning!

  6. Happy T-day! I would be wearing my drink, for sure, if I was drinking from that beautiful cup. I would be tipping it and turning it, just to admire the art work on it.

    Beautiful fusion work, haven’t done that in years.

  7. I join the others is thinking your cup is beautiful. I’ve never tried fabric fusion but you inspire me. I want to try some new techniques this winter so I’m putting this on my list.

  14. How funny because I was thinking only the other day that I should make some fabric paper until I realised I had no freezer paper to hand 😦
    This is so beautiful and how amazing to have this to hand for whenever the artistic urge strikes you to create magical art.

  21. Your mug is gorgeous! 😀 And how fine that you have other crafty friends to meet up with. I am alone (as far as I know) in my area. I know knitters and stitchers, but no paper crafters. I’m sooo grateful for the online world.
    I made some paper fabric a couple of years ago and found it too thick, but have managed to get through it eventually. I may make some more using lighter materials now I’ve seen other ideas. Thanks for the links 😉
    What are you going to do with your paper fabric? 😀

  29. Love the fabric fusion paper. I’ve never included fabric in mine. Just tissue as the base. What a great effect the fabric has. I will have to give it a whirl.
