With glimmer and glitter at the top of my “things I love” list, you’ll understand why I’m so excited about the projects in today’s video.
Laurel Burch was am amazing artist whose legacy of imagery continues to inspire just about everyone who see it. When Stampendous released the initial batch of stamps that feature Laurel’s drawings I was all in, ordering as many as I could.
A few months ago I visited Barbara Trombley at Art Glitter’s headquarters in Cottonwood, AZ. While I was there I saw some amazing samples that had been glittered in an array of fabulous colors. Among them was some preprinted Laurel Burch fabric and in moments I was in love and inspired to give it a go.
After I was home and ordered the stamps I knew I wanted to find ways to bling them up, making them even more marvelous with glimmer and color. Enter Barbara’s Art Glitter and Marabu’s Fashion Liner: glitter and glimmer applied with little effort that produces spectacular results. After playing with both options I decided a video featuring the techniques was in order… and here we are.
In today’s video I’ll demo how easy it is to add glitter and glimmer to those stamped images. You’ll see me use Dina Wakley’s Media Tools to move the glue and glitter around, making refining an edge or line easy to do. Fashion Liner is even simpler since it’s added in a single step. If your project uses Fashion Liner and it will be laundered, be sure to follow Marabu’s heat setting instructions:
The color is made washable up to 140F by setting with a hot dry iron for 3 minutes, preferably image side up with a thin piece of fabric or paper between the iron and the image. Alternatively, bake the fabric in the oven at 300F for 8 minutes.
If your glittered project is on fabric that will be laundered, you MUST use the Dries Clear Fabric Adhesive and it MUST be heat set. Click here to download the instructions.
