Hello everyone its Melissa here and I’m so happy to be back with you again, this time sharing a new layout with the gorgeous Daydream collection!! For this layout I really wanted to attempt creating a layout with the B side of ‘STEPPING STONES’ as I’d had an idea for machine stitching in matching colours. I needed a happy fun photo, and this recent photo of Brielle was perfect!
I tore a piece of the patterned paper, and made sure that the top edge was torn as well. Then I went to town with uneven stitching in matching colours, back and forth on each stipe until I got the effect I wanted. Did you know I’ve only recently started machine stitching in coloured threads?
I also did lots of fussy cutting. I cut one of the floral clusters from ‘GARDEN VARIETY’ a placed it at the bottom of my photo. I used a couple of papers from the ‘6 x 8 PAPER STACK’ to back my photo, and tucked one of the beautiful ‘PUFFY HEARTS’ to the right of my floral cluster.
I also fussy cut lots of moths and butterflies from ‘ALL AFLUTTER’ to use as embellishments. I adhered them in positions that colour matched the thread and stripes.
For my title two of the ‘DIE CUT TITLES’ were perfect, and I placed elements on and around the ‘Sunshine’. I used a floral cluster sticker from the ‘ACCESSORY STICKERS’.
I finished with my journaling, splatters and some sequins from the ‘SEQUINS & FLOWERS’ pack.
I made a video of my process which you can watch below.
Thanks so much
