mul•tex™ is an amazing new art and craft surface coming in April! To give you a peek at the wonders of it, we’ll be posting project instructions for some gorgeous mul•tex pieces created by our staff and our Creative Troupe throughout this month.
C&T author and editorial team member, Sue Astroth, has designed our first “show-off” with this perky mul•tex flower. Wouldn’t this make a great accent for a bag, hat, headband, lapel, giftwrap, or even a scrapbook page? Using her Sizzix diecuts (Tattered Florals & Leaves by Tim Holtz), she punched out the shapes, then applied color and highlights usingRanger Distress Inks. mul•tex loves color and shows it off beautifully! The various petals and leaves were then stacked and bound using a fancy brad. Nothing like a simple and satisfying project!
mul•tex is two surfaces in one—fibrous mulberry paper on one side, with a glossy laminate on the other side. It’s lightweight, translucent (yet tear-resistant), and perfect for painting, inking, printing, stamping, embossing, fusing, sewing, wrinkling…the creative possibilities are endless. You’re gonna love working with it!
