Restructured Paper and Paper Cloth

I very much enjoyed the restructured paper tutorial I did for Gingersnap Creations and the results
Restructured Paper

Tag made from Restructured Paper
stamps: Kaisercraft and Stampotique
Stickles, bling
, ribbon

... soooo much that I ventured into making some 'Paper Cloth' having been inspired by the work of Kelli Perkins and her fabulous creations. In parts the process is similar to making Restructured Paper. Paper Cloth has a fabric base which I soaked in diluted PVA glue (1 part glue to 2 parts water) and then covered in tissue paper, fabric scraps, paper scraps and in the end with lace. It was an experiment

and I am quite happy with the outcome and will definitely do more with all my scraps. Petra.

I saw your tutorial on Gengersnaps and I loved it! I really love the card you made with your new paper. So much interest when using the restructured paper as a background combined with your beautiful stamping :) I have made fabric paper before and it is SO COOL! I haven't done it in awhile and I really should try it again. I can't wait to see what you do with yours!

Looked at your tutorial over at Gingersnaps, very intriguing, looks like something I'm going to try. Your tag came out great.That fabric piece is interesting also, will look forward to seeing what you make with that.
