life is.... oh yes, a journey!

Here is a layout that I did recently with a new technique on it... for me anyways... I sewed! Hard to believe... me, sewing.... but yes. I cut my polka-dot paper into a fun shape, (from a stencil I made from shaped pattern paper that I had bought). I then sewed around the edges. Don't look too close, you will see mistakes... but that adds charm! To get all the hearts I drew a heart and then traced it onto a bunch of different scraps from my scrap bucket. I used several different ribbons and just ran them across the page. I love the greens & blacks together!!!

I cut the title from my Silhouette. I then just doodled a fine line around the edges to add a little detail. In another font I cut out, "life is" and put it right over the first title!
