I have a Sketch Support project that I made that I totally forgot to blog and share once it went live on their site. You can find the original sketch on their site at http://www.sketchsupport.com/2011/09/add-on-week-part-2.html .
For this mini book, I used the add-on sketch as the design inspiration for this fabric applique that I adhered to the front of a handmade fabric mini book.
Each piece consists of white printed fabric that was colored with assorted colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I really love that printed design works like a resist with the Glimmer Mist. The colorized fabric was then layered with batting before being sew to the layers below. (This Tuesday Tutorial will help you see how I do my fabric appliques.)
After adhering the applique to the book cover, I sprayed the applique and both covers with Super Seal to protect them. Glimmer Mist is not water proof on fabric, so the applique were to become wet, the colors would probably run. A spray sealer helps guard against that, but still, moisture avoidance is a good idea with this type of application. (I use Super Seal by Creative Imaginations, but I couldn’t find it online to link to.)
After adhering the assembled applique to the book cover, I added chipboard letters below it to create a title. I used Helmar 450 QuickDry to adhere the letters. It is my favorite go-to clear liquid glue. It dries really fast and has a super strong bond.
