For this particular layout, the falling snowflakes completely mimic the photos. I often like the layout to be an extension of the photos.
All in all, it’s a pretty simple design. A little mist, a collection of fabulous patterned papers and vellum, stitching and snowflakes.
And like I mentioned before, the snowflakes could be flowers, Christmas ornaments, baseballs or any sort of embellishment that would accentuate your photos.
Here’s a close up. I actually didn’t even adhere the flakes and dots to my page. I just held them in place and started sewing.
Here’s a tip for sewing over bulky chipboard letters. Reduce the tension as if you were making a basting stitch and go slow. If the needle refuses to budge, go at it manually until you get over the patch that is too thick.
Again, I wish each and everyone of you, my fabulous readers a Very Merry Christmas!!
