I hope you have some fun scrappy plans for the weekend, I’m pretty sure I do 😉
My first step was coming up with my title which I knew I wanted to hand stitch. When I worked out what I was hand stitching I came up with the “sheesh” in my title knowing I had these leatherette alphas in my stash. More texture!
I used a paint brush and just painted inside the lines of the word my cameo had sketched.
When that was dry I added splatters in the same blue I created and then also added more splatters to match the collection I was using. I’ve used Blush, Sunshine, Envy and Stormy Weather Colour Shimmer Spray’s.
After that was thoroughly dried I poked all the holes for my stitching, put on my current fave TV show and got stitching!
A few layers behind my photo including some patterned paper that had what looked like brush strokes which I fussy cut for more texture. I also added some gold star shaped punchinella as the very back layer behind my photo.
Before I stuck that down I decided I wanted some extra texture behind the photo on the white cardstock so pulled out my Black Heavy Gesso and an old store card and added in some messy lines around the 4 corners where my photo was going to tie in the black stitching.
More texture with some puffy stickers which I ended up stitching through with gold thread on my sewing machine.
I added my journalling and also a strip of paper at the top of the page and my page was done!!
