 Grin  So I've seen this done and just haven't taken the time to try it until the other day.  I got to say, I LOVE it  Cheesy 
I loosely followed this tutorial I found online but I just used a J-cloth for the base, didn't want to use any of my cotton fabric cuz I'm stingy that way  Cheesy  Anyhow, it worked out just fine.  I watered my white glue down about half consistency which seemed ok, u might even want it thinner, and just used a sponge brush applicator for it.  I used fabric scraps, some paper letters I had, bits of fiba-tape which is a mesh sticky tape used in drywalling, some bits of metallic tape used for insulation wrap ( or something like that LOL), scraps of tissue paper crumpled and bunched and flattened a bit, other odds and ends that were laying around here. I used a variety of paints to put on surface and you can see the gold sparkle fabric paint showing on it which I like...baby bling  Grin
The back of the fabric paper turned out interesting also, so when I use it I'm going to take some pieces of the backside also to incorporate in my designs I'm working on.  This is the tutorial I used. The best part out of all this is the messiness  Cheesy cuz it's all smooshy and the finished product is then a fun surprise.   http://albedoarlee.wordpress.com/2006/11/07/making-fabric-paper/

 Cheesy Cheesy I laugh out loud everytime I see that picture of your cat with that santa hair, or is it feathers,  on his head *snicker*

Thanks!!  I'm actually going to be cutting it up and using the different pieces in a fabric and painted landscape thing I'm experimenting with.  I will sew the pieces in as part of a textured landscape....you can also cut out the shapes and make them into other things as they are quite stiff after the glue dries.  You could cut out flower shapes and different things and make magnets, pins, trinkets, whatever I suppose...good way to get rid of odds and ends you might otherwise throw away and just plain fun to make  Grin

Wow, that looks so great! I too think it would look great framed as is, but I'm sure you'll make something gorgeous with it. I need to check out that tutorial!
