Fantasy Film

I've been playing with Fantasy (Fusible) Film with these results ...


Faux carnival glass (tutorial by RachO113) - the light isn't great and the flash shows a bit but in real life these are very pretty and shiny.

I wanted to try something else so I took various scraps of painted paper and using gel medium pasted the film to the papers. For some of them I crumpled the film first and on some of them I cut little pieces out. I also glued the papers to lightweight card stock for a firmer foundation. 

When they were dry (well nearly dry ... I was impatient) I blasted them with a heat gun. They turned out very pretty and I used the Tim Holtz tattered florals die to turn them into flowers ...


Again in real life these are beautifully shiny. I curled the petals a little to give dimension. 

I only had one colour of Fusible Film - Crystal Aurora - from Crafty Notions.
