here's another


just finished this one, this is Bethal's "Fabric House"...it was a bit of a challenge for me being that it is fabric...yup that background is cloth!!!
I began with white cotton and drew all over it with a black Sharpie, then I covered it with a thick layer of pva glue, then I placed some organza down and smooshed it into the glue...it oozed through, so I sprinkled a variety of different embossing powders all over it before getting out my handy dandy heat gun...melting fabric is fun!!!, then I wanted to add a little glitz and instead of getting out my divine fusible film I coated the housie in pva again and then placed strips of glitzy rainbow fabric and heat it up...then I embellished to finish :)
It is truly much nicer in hand with lots of "ooooh" appeal
