How did I do that ...Hilde embroidery on yoru pages!

If you love to add some great touches to your page, you should try embroidery!
I love to embroider on my layouts. Simple border around the page, or around a photo.
On this page I created leaves and a swirl.

First I always start to draw the image with a pencil. This way you can erase it when you make a mistake.
Then I use a thick needle to create the tiny wholes.

Then with embroidery thread you just sew your own created images.

Here you can see a closeup of the leaves. Since I didn't have darker green thread at this moment my leaves didn't show as much as I would loved too.
So I added some pearl drops on the thread.

You can create so many images with embroidery thread! Flowers, swirls, little accents you name it!!
Have fun!!

My many years of cross stitching has left me with a TON of embroidery floss. I don't stitch as much as I should on a LO.. This is wonderful!! Thanks for the reminder.
