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!
