Ever wonder how to create a beautifully detailed layout?
Gerry shared with us below the make up of one of her gorgeous page's using
ScrapThat!'s June Kit
I love adding personal touches to my layouts and one of the ways to do so is to hand-stitch. On this layout I hand-stitched the circle on the background and added lacy border to it.
I used a round plate to outline the circle. Pricked holes and then I hand-stitched.
1. I chose a punch appropriate for my design. In this case Martha Stewart`s "Vintage Floral" was perfect.
2. I cut out only the florals.
3. Then I adhered them.
Once I was ready I began decorating. The photo was matted on this punched strip of paper. It was resized according to my hand-stitched circle. I also cut part of the circle with the quote so I can insert part of the punched strip.
The white ZVA Tulle Flower was originally big. What I did was to remove the last layer of petals.
With the leftover petals I matted the circle with the quote.
