Out of the Hat - August .....

Another great challenge this month at Out of the Hat!
- use a square photo/s
- strip journaling
- paint

I've used this super cute sewing themed papers from My Little Shoebox and I just knew that teamed up with the WOW chipboard title and sewing machine, they would be perfect to go with these photos of my little man sewing his very own teddy bear.

I used twinkling H2O's and a gold gel pen to colour the sewing machine chipboard and then I just couldn't resist "threading it up" .... I think it looks so effective!

For the "Happiness is Homemade" chipboard title I first painted it in red and then spritzed with Pearl glimmermist. After I glued it to the page I have done some random tacking stitches over the chipboard to make it appear to be stitched to the page.

I finished it off with some yummy embellies ... a doiley from Chip Chop Shop, button from Lil Red Rocket and a bottlecap from A Lil' Somethin'

Hope you like!
