I wanted to share another example of hand stitching on a background. This idea would be awesome with stars, circles, triangles, mickey icons....or any shape of punch you have.
I began by hand cutting a heart from a scrap of paper but using a punched shape would be great. I
traced around the heart with a pencil on my background. I was at a crop
so I put the background paper on one of the firm cushion chairs so that I
could puncture the holes.
Next I used Kreinik threads to stitch the hearts in colors that would coordinate with the papers I chose for my layout.
