Hi, Lucy Edson here with my first video tutorial for Shimmerz!
Shimmerz Spritz is perfect for masking on fabric as you can see on this video I made. It added an amazing sheen and color to my masked mini quilt. Take a look at how I started this project:
I added a little more misting to this after I finished the video - the dress form is Chickadee Spritz the shadow masking, Ruby Spritz and then I added a little 4 Leaf Clover on the right side and Mango Madness over the left edge of the Ruby to add a little more color.
To make my sample into a mini quilt: I layered the masked fabric with cotton batting and a cotton backing, creating a quilt sandwich and with light yellow embroidery thread, free motion quiltied the outline of the dress form first and filled the background with a random pattern. After completing the quilting I straightened the edges and zig-zag stitched them to stop any fraying.
Then, hand stitched some paper doilys onto the sides and layered a few embellishments.
The top has some gold Hambly rub-ons applied after the quilting - I love the look of rub-ons on fabric.
I have some other samples from creating my video and I'll share those with you as I complete them.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy another way to play with your Shimmerz Spritz!
