It's time for another TCS project! This time I created a layout focused on a shape from the "Let Them Eat Pie" set of cut files.
I love how you can use so many patterned papers on one page without it being overwhelming when you use a large diecut shape. I was really excited to use some Heidi Swapp "September Skies" products on this page that I have been accidentally hoarding for a couple months now.
I have told myself that I need to try new techniques this year, and so I used some hand stitching on this page to make the diecut stand out more. After an hour or so and a few finger pricks, I was done with that tedious part (whew)! Sometimes I think I have ADD. I have no patience.
Another new thing I tried on this page was cutting my picture into a shape. Honestly , I have never cut my photos anything other than a rectangle or circle. I will have to do this more, because it's so cool! :)
I had traced a circle a little behind the starburst shape and I used that as a guideline to place my enamel dots, wood veneer, and journaling. It was a bit of a pain to erase the pencil lines, so don't look too close. I might not have erased it all...
