Using Fabrics in Your Papercrafts

Fabric and fibers are a great way to add different textures and colors to your scrapbooking and card crafting. This week at Craft Critique has been all about adding fabric to or how fabric influences papercrafting. Today's article is my book review on Scrapbook Styles: Fabrics and Florals by Jill Miller. Other articles includes Beyond Paper: Fibercraft and It's Influence on Scrapbooking by Julie Fei-Balzer and Stiffy Fabric Stiffener: Add Texture to Your Papercrafts by Michelle Laycock. Also check out the Fabric Challenge Carnival to get more inspiration for your own crafting adventures.

Years ago, when Stiffy fabric stiffner first came out, there was also a product I purchased that was like a fine white gauze with stiffner already in it. You would wet the fabric and mould it to the shape you wanted. It was simple and convenient. The only thing I can find now is plaster cloth. Same idea, not as nice of fabric and too much plaster. I don't remember what it was called and wonder if it is still available. Can anyone help me find it?
