Tatting and Crafting in my little corner of the world.
I think it's beautiful! The only advantage I find with the paint is that the fabric/paper seems to adhere better.
I did not have the problem of the paper not adhering well, matter of fact with a coat of mod podge 1st the paper adheres better it seems even with the fabric. Then apply a layer of mod podge on top and then 2 or 3 coats of gloss varnish.
