Yesterday over on the Moxxie blog was my debut!! So I thought I would share my work here as well! So let's get to it- o.k.??
Whenever I start a project I always make a sketch first. So today I am going to share one of my sketches.
With this sketch I knew I wanted to work with the Faith Collection. Jack is going on 7 years old and I had never found the perfect paper to scrap his Baptism. Well, Moxxie had it. This line is perfect and the name of the collection says it all- Faith!
So with the sketch I cut out all my different layers of paper and I sewed around the edges. You can't really tell that I machine stitched around the edges-- but I did.
Next I knew I needed to add a bit of mist and paint. With the way the sketch was designed I wanted to keep the visual diagonal going on the paper so I added some paint in the top right and the bottom left. I added 3 different colors from Mister Huey by Studio Calico- Heirloom Blue, Powder Blue and Shine. These colors really matched the paper well.
Now it was time to add all the pieces together.
Here is the final look!
Hope you enjoyed my Start to Finish with Moxxie! I will have a new Start to Finish every month with a new sketch!
I will be back on Thursday with a new project! Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful and crafty day!
