My favorite mounting weapon? Wonder-Under! First I iron on the fusible web to the back side of my stitchling, peel the backing paper off, trim my design, and then iron it right onto the scrapbook background paper. Of course then I have to cover the raw edges with glitter glue, right? (I love glitter!)
Sometimes I iron the stitchling onto a piece of cardstock first, to create a matted look:
I am not a huge fan of regular-sized brads, but I do love to use those cute teensy brads to mount a matted piece onto a page like this:
For larger count fabrics and any sewing/quilting related designs, I prefer to skip the fusible web and just sew them directly to the page. I have been using the zigzag stitch on my machine:
For my pages with a hodge-podge of little bits, I like to use a variety of mounting methods:
I started off with a regular 12 x 12 postbound book, but the pages were heavier than normal (or I just wasn’t very careful) and the page protectors kept getting ripped near the post in the center. I recently found a D-ring style album that closed on both sides and also has an elastic band in there to help keep the pages aligned and started using that instead:
It’s probably not all completely archival, but I’m pretty sure it will last longer than I will! This is just something I’m having fun with. I’ve noticed a few others having fun with it, too– Teejay has pretty embellishments in hers, and Danielle has been noting her stitching details… anyone else?
