Stitched background – Ticket to my heart

Hi everyone! Dani Donner here today bringing my favourite page from Charmed Life. It is hard to pick a favourite, but I have to admit the Amy Tangerine stitch templates are my go-to item in the whole add-on this month:

And what a better idea than pair it with one of my favourite medias at the moment: VELLUM!!!!

You have to be extra careful when stitching, so you end up with a perfect back. No knots or tape allowed, all I used to keep the thread in place was a drop of Glossy accents. 🙂

Some fussy cutting for the embellishments, a feather to compliment the airy look of the page and your all set!

It was some time consuming, but the end result was worthy. I was able to accomplish the airy/whimsical look I wanted when I first thought about pairing stitching background to vellum.

 

Thanks for stopping by,

Dani Donner

    The chevron stitch: HOLY TIME CONSUMING! Not to mention it’s kind of an IQ test! I am STILL working on mine from a layout I started Friday. 😉 Its gorgeous, but wow! Too much work for my style heheh!

    Ok, I see why it’s taking me so long to use the chevron stitch. I noticed here you connected all of the chevron arrows. I was trying to make them more individual and leave spaces…which is difficult! DUHH! Totally wish I would have done it the way you did!
