Because of the photo,I used a lot of twine,& as I do in all my LO’s to get the texture without taking away from the paper,I did a lot of layers&hand stitching to achieve my texture…..

Even in my banner there is 3 layers,I also used lots of eyelets in this LO & did some cross stitching….

In this photo you can see all the layers in my circle,& different uses of twine,string & thread.I left the Scrap Fx natural,glued it down,then rubbed in chalk & glued down beads….

I did my layers,stitching,but on this Lo I used lots of chalk to deepen the color of the paper to match the photo trying not to lose the pattern of the paper…..
