Next up is a new LO I finished using the Mitten Weather line. I really do like this line a lot, but I for some reason just have a hard time scrapping winter/Christmas themed projects, and have them turn out looking decent. :P I don't know what it is, but they just never turn out the way I wanted. This LO turned out super plain jane to me. :P But the pics of Cree make me smile so I am still somewhat happy with it. :D I decided to tone-down that background paper by giving it a white-wash with watered down gesso. Everything else I just cut into squares, and some of them I punched the middle out with one of my fav winter punches from Martha Stewart, then backed those pieces with a different patterned paper. Once everything was all lined up, then I ran it through my sewing machine. Some of the pieces turned out a little wonky cause they weren't so securely fastened, but it is pretty subtle. Anyway, here it is. :D
This last one I will share is actually pretty old! :P it went up on the Cosmo blog month's ago, but never made it to my own blog! LOL! But it is one of my all time favs. I really like how this one turned out! I don't usually do circles on my blog (I am not sure why, they just don't come to mind when designing), but they really made this LO I think. Lots of distressing and inking, and some machine and hand sewing. And I love that pic of Cree so this LO just makes me happy. :D
Here are some close ups of the hidden journaling tag behind the picture. I still have to put the journaling on there. :P Details, details.
