Designer Take: Tessa’s Heart Strings
Our current technique challenge is called “Heart Strings“, inspired by the My Mind’s Eye patterned paper from the Only You kit. The challenge is to include a heart on your layout that is stitched in some way. I joined in on the fun, too:
I copied the stitched hearts from the patterned paper by making my own – very large – stitched heart background.
First, I drew a heart lightly in pencil. Next, I pierced holes evenly around the heart. Last, I stitched back and forth across the heart with three different shades of pink embroidery floss.
