Hi it’s Jennifer scrapbooking with you today using the June Kit.
I knew the arrows & adventure bits in the June kit would be perfect for these photos from a walk we went on to the Blue Pool, near us in Dorset.
The first thing I did was pull out the kit and my photo to work out what items I wanted to use:
I had recently discovered a fabulous Instagram account, of a crafter who does some amazing stitching on her scrapbook layouts. You can see her photos here: https://www.instagram.
I lightly drew through the stencil with a pencil, and then pierced holes along the sketched lines using a paper piercing tool:
I used ordinary cotton thread, doubled over so it was a little thicker, to back-stitch along the lines:
When I’d finished the yellow I decided it needed a bit of contrast, so I used another colour to stitch across some of the gaps:
And kept stitching until it was all done:
It’s not on the same scale as Elizabeth Sarah’s stitching, but I like it!
