Documented Life Project, Week 37

This week:  add stitching to your card. Ironically, I've got another butterfly, but it wasn't really intentional. I was trying to make a lovely layered background and all I seemed to be making was mud! Finally, I put a layer of gesso over the whole thing and decoupaged a portion of a paper napkin down. And then... the heavens opened and the angels started singing!

From that point, it all got easier. I stitched around the outside, stamped the words onto dictionary scraps and then embellished it all with sparkly Sakura Gelly Roll pens. SO happy with how it all ended up. I guess that's the challenge of mixed media- keep working at it, trying different techniques and materials until you find the balance that pleases you.

Happy making, Friends!
