Two of the challenge blogs that I follow have got together for a combined challenge this month. Stuck?! Sketches provided the sketch and Scrap Our Stash added a stash challenge to use items representing each of the letters in the word LAYERS. I used the word Love (on the hearts paper), an Ampersand, the Year, Enamel dots, Red cardstock and Stitching on my page.
I moved everything on the sketch down the page (and omitted the bottom part) as my photos are taller than the ones in the sketch. I decided to machine-stitch the circles with gold blending filament which turned out to be a bit of a mistake. The thread is so fine and snags so easily that it kept breaking as I stitched.
My photos are from a cousin's wedding earlier this summer. The couple's colour theme for the day was red and cream, so I used those colours for my page, with the addition of gold. My background is a lacy/doily print, but the detail's been lost in the photo below.
