S....is for September, Stitching and Scrapology!!!

Hello there....well as we have rolled into September it means over at Scrapology we have also rolled out this months inspiration too! This month we have been inspired to lift a fabulous layout by Alison ( pop over to the blog and have a look, you will also find a sketch of the original for you to work from if you wish)....there are some lovely examples from the rest of the design team for you to see.

Here is my offering for Sept....as you can see I have very slightly changed it....I have a pleated border rather than circle and I am not patient enough to have done lots more hand sewing lol.... BUT the good thing is you DON'T have to do it all anyway....as you can see by looking at some of the other DT pages you can use faux stitching, rub ons and even machine stitching.

I have used papers from My Little Shoebox, Echo Park and Cosmo Cricket.

And yes....that IS a bath scrunchie( brand new and un-used ;)) that has been gathered and stuck along the bottom of the border lol ( watch this space, I have a feeling this fabby fabric will be appearing all over the place)

a few tatty spiral roses..... and below is a close up of the stitching ( I never was any good at embroidery!)

The frilled edge all around the photo was created using some 5 bladed scissors which are also sometimes known as security scissors or fringe scissors.
I like how the blades slice and then slightly turn the slices so they stand up a little.

We would love to have you come along and play with us....and to entice you even more we have yet another wonderful prize that you could win this month from Cardinal Colours that Jill has so kindly donated....thank you Jill.xxx
So, you have until October 1st to create and submit and then Alison will be choosing the best layout for the winner on Oct 3rd........go on, you know you want to!!!!!
warmest wishes Anita..xxx
