Now on to the projects! At some point in the future I would love to make a quilt with these beautiful fabrics, maybe once more patterns are released :).



Since I'm not a quick sewer I choose to make fabric butterflies for this home decor piece.



It's hard to see in the photo but I also painted Glitter Mod Podge on the butterfly wings to add some sparkle.



I mixed blue and black latex paint, painted on to a 12x12 canvas, misted with water and then tilted the canvas for the paint to drip down the canvas. Once the paint was dry I added gold splatters with the Altenew Metallic Watercolor, then
adhered the butterflies with a hot glue gun.


Here you can see the glitter Mod Podge on the butterfly wings. I finished the piece off with a bible verse die cut from Gold Mirror cardstock and the Fine Alphabet die set.

If you're not a sewer but love these Altenew fabrics, you can also incorporate them in your paper crafting projects!


I created this layout using the fabrics as I would patterned paper. The fabric is painted with matte Mod Podge to minimize fraying.


The pink fabric is coated with glitter Mod Podge :).


I fussy cut a couple of blooms from the floral fabric and used them to "frame" the photo.


The fabric butterflies embellish the layout along with Antique Gold Sequins.


The title is die cut with the Bold Caps Alpha dies and Gold Foil cardstock. 

I hope you've enjoyed these projects, thanks for stopping by!

You're next stop for more inspiration is NATASHA DAVIES!
