Happy Tuesday everyone! How is your week coming along? Nicely I hope. Today, I have the honor of hosting the blog, together with my talented friend, Alex.
I was browsing Flickr the other day and I found this! ↓ At that very moment, I was so inspired that I started to work on my layout straight away.
Here's my take on it
I decided to use that beautiful map patterned paper (Daily Flash Milk Money - Social Studies) as the main element on my layout. I wanted to mimic the wavy stitched lines of the inspiration piece and did just that, with the help of my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file. I layered a piece of chipboard from To The Point Flash Chip set on a circle label, added a heart sticker and a stamped tab, all adding pops of red across the layout.
Here's a close up. You can see that I machine stitched some of the wavy pieces onto the white background. Beside being inspired by the stitching in the inspiration piece, I also love stitching down stuff on my layout because then you'll know they're not going anywhere. Stitching is a great way to adhere bits and pieces to your layouts.
And here's Alex's interpretation of this week's inspiration ↓
