Here is Susan in her own words:
See the cute little birdie? This is what we are going to learn today. AND if you like videos, check it the one that Susan made just for us here on YouTube!
I LOVE DISTRESSING and RIPPING my paper all the time!!! However, one day I noticed that I was making a LOT of ‘dust’ that looked like ‘FLOCKING’. So, I started to collect it and use it just like flocking and this is how I did it…
Samples of my Core’dination flocking in jars.
This is from some Core Essentials
This one is from some Black Magic…can you see the flecks of black in the flocking?
I used a pair of scissors to easily loosen the paper fibres that I wanted to collect to make my projects. Please watch my You Tube video at the end of my blog post to see exactly how I did it!
I them used Kuretake 2 way Glue to outline where I wanted to place my ‘flocking’.
I placed some of the paper flocking on and then neatly edged it into place with a popsicle stick! So easy and fast!
You can add more than one color to your designs and you can add embellishments like rhinestones! There really aren’t any limits to what you can do!
AND make sure you check out Susan’s Video here. It’s awesome!
Thanks so much Susan!!!
