stitched up..

Hi fellow Qtea peeps..I've finally found the time to sit down and play with this gorgeous kit! I've been getting back into scrapping 8.5x11" pages lately and love how these smaller layouts make my kit go even further.. I've used just a few bits and pieces from the kit on this one: blue flower stem, adia cloth, and the square vintage paper doily

On this layout, the first thing I did was cut a few little flowers from the vintage paper doily and inked them in aqua. I've also cut out a scallop border strip from the adia cloth and roughed up the edges a bit. Then I got brave and used a sewing machine for the first time on a layout!..I was so nervous about stuffing it up..sewing machines and me usually clash big time, but I was happy with the result and added texture..can't wait to do it again actually :)

I've finished off the layout with a couple of paper strips, some glimmer mist and paint and a title..

I hope you're having fun with your April Kit..I'll be back again soon to share another layout

This page is gorgeous Gina, love the colours and photo. I machine stitch on my layouts all the time as it's the most work out my machine gets ;) plus it's a fast and strong way to add things without mucking around with glue and tape, lazy me.
