The challenges this month are:
Here's how I went about getting it ready for sewing.
Step 1 : Type your title and choose your font on the computer.
If it is too small try a bigger size.
I decided that 72 was the correct size for my layout.
Place it over your patterned paper to compare.
Step 3: Employ a technique I learnt back in the Dark Ages at school.
Colour over the printing on the reverse side with a soft pencil.
Step 5: Sew your heading. I used stem stitch.
Next, I used paint to create a coloured background for my hessian.
I cut small rectangles of hessian and lightly painted them using left over paint.
I stitched them under the picture with grey buttons and matching thread.
My other embellishments were added.
The large wooden butterfly has faux stitching using gel pen.
I added matching MME gel dots, journaling card and words.
Here's the order for the Blog Hop
