I chose the Posie Swag cut file for this layout.
The cut file was cut out on white textured card stock with my electronic cutting machine. As you can see, I hand stitched around the entire design. I'm not going to lie, this took several hours, but I really enjoy hand stitching and find it to be very relaxing. It takes me back to my old cross stitching days before I discovered scrapbooking.
After the hand stitching was completed, I painted/watercolored the flowers with a water brush and a pink Gelato (Bubble Gum) as well as the leaves and stems with a green Gelato (Lime Green) and then I added the die cut swag on top of a pink water colored background piece of white card stock.To complete the layout, I embellished with some die cuts, enamel dots, paint splatters and some handwritten journaling for more of a personal touch.
Here are some fussy cut flowers, hearts and my title.
I am really loving the hand stitching trend and am on a stitching binge at the moment. It was fun to create this layout. I hope you enjoy it too.
