I belong to a kit club (Like Forever) and there is a lot of page stitching going on lately to inspire. So when my dear friend Helen found a stitching template and asked if I would like to use it on a challenge I jumped at the chance!
The template is concentric hexagons, which is a shape that never fails to look great on a scrapbook page!
Here is the page I created for this challenge and features three year old me and my brother dancing with one of my aunts. As I was using papers from my LFE Smitten kit I chose threads that complimented the papers.
I tried to think outside the box when it came to the design of my stitched hexagons and although the sweep of them across the page is not so inspiring I created patterns inside them with each colour having it's own pattern.
In a couple of the larger ones I added some chipboard gold hearts.
Finally a little cluster under the photo incorporating my title.
Now to Helen's dramatic page of her and her partner at a Casino Night held in January.
The black red and pinks really make for a eye catching layout and with the addition of hearts creates a LOVEly page!
Helen has used the concentric pattern of the template to her advantage and created a frame for her title from several different coloured threads.
Helen's glitter heat embossed embellishments add a beautiful touch of sparkle that the photo just can't do justice!
Ok, that's our challenge for February shared with you and the next one will be a Tic Tac Toe designed by yours truly!
Hope you were inspired by us to stitch on your page, it really does look wonderful and adds soft texture!
For those of you living in the UK I have sourced the template on Ebay HERE in case you wanted a closer look.
Thanks for stopping by today and wish you a crafty weekend.
