New Product in the Scrapbooking Aisle

Has anyone else seen this stuff:)
 You can find it in the scrapbook section at AC Moore's- I haven't seen it at Michael's yet...and those are the only 2 craft stores here. Anyways... It's just beautiful! And it comes it several different colors! It's a paper type of 'fluff'? After you stamp an image- you can go back and add glue and then add this stuff to make it look pretty- For example they had a flower basket stamped out... and added this to it to make it 3-D. But you know how us Miniaturists think! I saw plant flocking!

((Not sure what I was thinking yesterday when I wrote this- but this stuff is actually in the rubber stamp section- next to the inks...my mind is just not here!))
 So I found a plant that I liked at PetSmart- for a dollar!- and this is what I did...
 After taking it apart I repainted all the pieces with several coats of green paint. (They only have one coat in this picture)- I started with a dark green, and then will dry-brush these with lighter greens before...
 I Flock...or whatever you want to call it. At first I was using a toothpick- putting a dab of glue on each tip...But that took way to long- and by the time I got 1/2 way through it- I was using the glue bottle and just gluing everywhere...lol.
 I LOVE it! Ok, it may be a little too tall- but I'll figure that out. And now that I know what the 'finished' product looks like, I can just think of all the mini plants that I could Updo:)
 And as promised.... here's a few more things that I made for myself:) This is one of the end tables that I should you a few posts ago- I just added paper to the back of mine:)
This is one of my favorite scrapbooking papers- I just love the green against the tiny pink flowers:)
 This little chair was a gift from my sister. It used to be neon green, lol.
 I painted it red....then added rust spots. It's going to live on the front porch of MarshMallow Manor.
 And I've made books- sketch pads- journals.
I used the end of legal pads for the inside paper...One day- if I can find some more legal pads, I will show you what I mean. I just can't think of how to explain it:) Duh!
I still have a few more things to show you.... so...

Until Next Time...

Many thanks for this Katie - I've seen this stuff used a miniature 'bath salts' & never knew what it was! Now I can go get me some! Very much appreciated!

oooh I saw the flower soft stuff at JoAnn' last weekend! (sadly I was on a 'just-looking' trip) But I will be getting some soon! I never would have though to add it to commercial fish tank plants! That is just brilliant!

I love your furniture redos and those books are fantastic as well! I hope you find some more legal pads, because I'd love to see how you made those! They are super cute!
