Happy Valentine's Day!
I finally did it! I set up my sewing machine and I stitched for the very first time on paper. I've seen such beautiful cards and scrapbook layouts with machine stitching but have never actually tried it and now I'm hooked! My sewing machine is 38 years old and was handed down from my husband's grandmother. I wasn't even sure that it could do a zig-zag stitch, but it worked like a charm. Now I want to sew on every card and every scrapbook page!! If you look closely, you'll see the zig-zags around the outside edges of the patterned paper.
This Barefoot Tilda is colored with Copics. I'm trying to go with the concept of "less is more" when I color and I am not putting down so much color on these little Magnolias. I love the look of the soft colors and they went perfectly with this paper from "Pink Paislee". Her wings are glittered with some Doodlebug sugar-coated glitter - I'm not sure if that shows up in the picture. The card stock and ribbon are from Stampin' Up!
Thanks for stopping by!
