me & you

Last week I did a Layout of my kid in a tree and this picture is from that same day. Our four year old actually took this picture. Pretty good yah. We hardly ever get pictures of us together any more so I had to scrap this one.

Pattern Paper: K&company “berry sweet” (Green), DCWV “sweet” (pink flowers
Felt flowers: Queen&co.
Pen: Sakura Glaze (black), Marvy Decocolor (white paint pen)
Yarn: Sugar’n Cream
Crochet needle: I (5.5mm)
This week’s color challenge over at SPCC is bright and summery. Take a look….


I traced a bowl that we had for the circle and cut it out. Originally I was going to use the circle part but it looked way to busy, so I went with the outside instead.

The Layout was starting to look like two different pages so I was trying to think of how I could pull everything together. I was thinking stitching but already glued everything down *impatient me*. Then I thought crocheting. I started crocheting like a year ago because for some weird reason I thought I needed another hobby (my man was thrilled, NOT). I had all the supplies so I made a basic train stitch and just glued it to the page.


The flourishes on the page were cut from vellum.
Here’s how I made a custom vellum cut out …

First draw a design on scrap paper.
Then use glue tape on the outside of your design and adhere vellum to the paper


Now just cut it out using your drawing as a guide.


There you have it a custom vellum cutout. I ran a white paint pen around the edges just to give it a little pop.
