Good Fortune Hearts......Prep Work

We are preparing for a new class

Good Fortune Hearts

The P2P instructors are gathered around

the work table...

Nancy prepared class samples

 We will be creating pre-fused stitch paper today:

The release paper is peeled back... to reveal the fused paper

Nancy painted cheese cloth for us to work on:

Painted with Setacolors

We applied diluted glue on top of the cheesecloth

We ripped tissue papers and pressed them on top of the glue

A brush helps press the papers down into the wet glue

Yes.....this is FUN!

Diluted Mod Podge is applied on top of the wet tissue papers

After this is dry, a layer of fusible 

will be ironed to the back side.

This fusible stitch paper will be used to create 

Good Fortune Hearts
