The Documented Life Project had a prompt of "The Fabric of you Life." Well, I know my fabric has been torn apart many times over. I think, instead of try to fix rips, you should just get up and get some new fabric. It's worked for me.
I used Dylusion Sprays, dimensional paste in white and gold, gold pearls, actual torn fabric that I attached with gel medium, stamping in colors using a peacock feather stamp, black stamped letters, pen written journaling, and white drizzle paint.
