This week I wanted to incorporate some hand stitching on my page. I started sketching a flower shape onto white cardstock and then on the inside of the hand stitching I made a small slit in the paper to be able to tuck the die cut flowers into. I pierced holes along the design of the sketch and then stitched my heart away!
It's best to get the stitching part done first and I will admit, it did take me a while as it was a new kind of stitch that I had never tried before. Its called chain link stitch and it took me a little bit to get the hang of it. I chose the golden colour to enhance some of the gold pieces in the flowers. I used 4 strands of the embroidery thread.
Once the stitching was all done, it was time to adhere my photo down and embellish the page. The next step was to get the flowers tucked into the slit on the left how I liked them. I used the whole packet of ephemera flowers except for the leaves. I used the whole bottom section of the packet for this one page! I bent some of them up to add dimension and also adhered some with foam tape too.
