...what makes you Beautiful.

This month over at Our Creative Corner the challenge was to create a project focused on sewing...

 "Fabrics, wool, threads, lace - this months challenge is all about texture, layers and loveliness!

What scraps have you got hidden away? Any snippets of favorite clothes you can't bare to part with?

Anything sewing related can be used in your piece. You could use hand stitching or get out the sewing machine and don't worry if you are not a fan of sewing - why not try drawing in some fake stitches?  

Don't forget to get out your sewing themed stamps and dies.
Have fun and create something!"


SEW...I decided to take up the challenge
and here is what I created...

I started off with a piece of chipboard for my base to which I started adding layers.  A bit of white paint to start off with, then I adhered a bit of vintage sewing pattern tissue, bits and pieces from the envelope the pattern came in.  These were adhered using Sparkle Collage Pauge which has glitter in it to add a bit of sparkle!  After it had dried, I stamped stitches and sentiment (ClubScrap), and added  all sorts of vintage sewing items from my collection!   It's been a while since I made a collage and it felt so good!   I'm so glad I decided to join the challenge.

I added a couple of eyelets at the top and a pretty ribbon to hang it from.

Take It, Make It Challenge

As it happens this also fits into the challenge at Craft Stamper Magazine as their challenge this month is TEXT ME....use text in somewhere in your project.  I used the text from both the vintage pattern tissue paper and the text that was cut from the vintage pattern envelope it's self in the background.
