Angelina Tutorial

Angelina fibres are plastic and when heated fuse together. Take required amount of angelina fibres and lay between two sheets of paper. I have taken small amounts of 3 colours for this project, lemon, pink and blue. Iron using medium heat setting. Excess heat will alter the colour properties. Too little heat and the fibres will not bond.

The Angelina fibres will only bond to themselves and to crystalina and fusible film. Gold flake, threads, skeleton leaves, feathers can be put in between the layers to created added effects. The fused fibres can be stitched and decorated with embellishments.

You can also place Angelina fibres between fusible film to create a different effect. Fusible film is made of the same material.

Ink up a stamp with Staz On, I have used blazing red for this project and Blonde Moments flutterby stamp.

Lay a sandwich of fusible film and fibres on top of stamp carefully as so not to smudge the ink lay a piece of paper over top.

With heat setting on medium gentle iron. Lift paper at one corner to see if the film and fibres have fused.

Remove ironed sandwich of film and fibres from stamp.

Now cut round stamped image to make embellishment. Stamp a single image on a piece of film with matching colour Staz On allow to dry and cut round large wings and body. Attach with dries clears pva glue at body part only.

Hope you enjoyed my little tutorial and found it useful. I will post a picture of my finished card later.
