I'm up on the like for ever blog with another woodland layout today.
I knew I had the perfect photo to match the pencil icons in the kit - my budgie perching on top of my collection of pencils. He had only been here a few days and when he decided he liked pencils I knew we were going to be friends!!
I loved the photo frames and overlays that came in the kit and tasked myself to use them on every layout. Having used the gold frames on my first two layouts I opted for an overlay for this one. I was a bit stuck for ideas for attaching it to the photo. Sewing would certainly have been an option but I went with a gold paper clip from the like for ever shop.
I popped up the hello die cut and the fussy cut pencil pot on foam to give a little more emphasis and dimension.
And I finished off the layout with some hand stitching in gold thread. Gold thread is not the easiest to work with; it is much stiffer than regular thread. I do think the effect is worth the extra hassle though!
Check out the process too...
Thanks for stopping by!
