This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments, it's all about SPRING! Anything goes, with all the wonders of Spring as your springboard.
When I think Spring, I think Love...and when I think Love, I think hubby...and Chevron....do you see where I'm going with this?!
This 12 x 12 layout features a handmade and zigzag stitched chevron background made from Attic Boutique DSP, and is embellished with Attic Boutique Side Notes.
Here's the Hand Stamped Sentiments #115 challenge inspiration...please play along! Who couldn't use a little Spring in their day this week?
I matted the photo on Pool Party DSP and then onto ivory muslin, and frayed the edges.
Cut a bunch of strips like so, in different but complementary patterns.
Hold 2 pieces together at a 90 degree angle corner to corner, and snip them on the diagonal. This will ensure a clean cut look, instead of simply overlapping them, but either is o.k. Lay them out in rows on a scrap piece of cardstock.
When you like the way it looks, adhere them down. Cut your cardstock backing to size, and you will only see the chevron strips at this point.
Stitch them together, if desired. I used a zigzag stitch, I like the quilted look it gives.
I created a spattered look by pouring some Frost White Shimmer Paint on a stiff paintbrush and flicking it onto my cardstock. I have to mess it up just a little!
Have a blessed & creative day! Erika. www.erikaclark.stampinup.net
