|i scrapped this layout for a color challenge over on sistv. i never realized that you can put this widget into your blog and view the layouts! very cool!
with yesterday being the first day of autumn, i chose the fall color swatch for this challenge.
the picture is actually a postcard that i got at our church garage sale.
on this layout, i also tried using my sewing machine to stitch on paper. a long time ago, i owned a mini sewing machine specifically for paper, and it was awful. i hated using it. so, i’ve been nervous about trying my regular machine. but, i think you will see stitching on a lot more of my layouts! it was a lot of fun!
i also tried another fun & easy technique that i saw in a magazine recently. the chipboard arrow was a dingy color of brown, so i wrapped it with bright yellow thread to add more color and texture! too easy!!
all of this was stuff i had on hand. i’ve been trying to use more of my stash….
i hope you are enjoying the first bits of fall.
the women’s Bible study that i attend started today. it was so good to see some faces that i haven’t seen since spring. very excited to study God’s Word with these ladies!
