Today's layout is a page that I have been wanting to make ever since I took the pictures that are documented here. First of all, I used a sketch from Pretty Little Studio (you can find it by clicking here). I just LOVE participating in their challenges. I find them so fun! When I saw this week's sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I liked the grid design, so I made a little window template in my Silhouette software and cut it out with my Cameo. I took all of these pictures with my iPad, so I was happy to be able to utilize the pictures in small format on my page since they're not the best quality.
I used Basic Grey's "Fact & Fiction" line for this page. I bought it all at JoAnn's when all of their scrapbook stuff was 40% off plus I had an extra 10% off coupon. I really like all the little items Jo's carries of this particular line! I was happy to get to use the supplies since they had sat in my scraproom for a couple of weeks without being opened!
One very time consuming technique I used on this layout was hand stitching. I hand stitched every inch of the grid. While I like how it looks, I don't have the "proper" tools to make hand stitching efficient. It took me a loooong time to get this page done. I think I used almost a whole skein of embroidery floss for this page!
Thanks for stopping by! :)
