Hello,I am here to share with you a LO I did using the beautiful “Life in the Country” Collection. I took the photo of Michelle in my garden……….
Out of this Collection I used, Strawberries with Ice, Summer Kitchen, In the Hammock, Read a Book, & Read a Book BS. The chipboard is from Scrap Fx. Here are some closeups of detail……..
For my circle,I first cut out triangles,distressed the edges,then put a dab of glue in the center of the triangle & placed them on to the circle. Once the glue dried I lifted the edges with my finger,so that you could see the layers, I then punched in eyelets, & weaved in white embroidery thread. My next step was to make my open circle,that I distressed,then punched in eyelets, then weaved in cheesecloth & pearls. .Once I completed that I glued it down to the main circle,then glued the circle on to a doily,then onto my already distressed stitched LO……
I love to work with Maja papers,they distress & layer so nicely. I made the banner by starting with a piece of lace,attached cloths pins,then punched out tiny flowers with some of the scraps I was working with. I glued the flowers to the banner & added pearls. The tiny white roses are from I am Roses………
I used picket fence crackle on the stem part of the flourish & on the flowers I used Shimmerz paints texturez (tidy widy),then added some bling………
I made the flowers out of some of the scraps I was working with using MFT die cuts….
I first used red pepper ink on the wordlet girl,then I applied distress fired brick stickles. Here is a LO I did for the Scrap Fx Blog Hop using Flannel Shirt bs from the “Walking in the Forest Collection”.
Here is another LO I did using the Beautiful” Crea Diem” Collection,playing with CSI #70
From this collection I used Av hela mitt hjarta, Fylid av karlek, Karlenken-bs, kann dig sjalv-bs, Ord flyger bort-bs, Ord Flyger Bort & some of the backsides of the labels. I did some paper weaving on this LO,so here is 1 close up of detail…….
The photo is a close up of one of my first spring blooming plants,a bleeding heart. Yes I am feeling a bit manic right now,I still have a lot of work to do to get my garden going, but I hope I will have all my spring clean up & planting done,by the time I make my next post. Thank you so much for taking the time to look……Rachelle
