Sweet Dreams

4:30 AM

A couple of weeks ago I took a day trip to Seattle with a few of my coworkers. I hate all the wasted time just sitting in the car, so I decided to bring something productive to do! I really enjoy doing handstitching on long car rides, and so I brought a few projects with me. Here is one of them!

Supplies: Patterned Paper (Crate Paper, Pink Paislee, Heidi Swapp), Embellishments (Heidi Swapp, Freckled Fawn, Studio Calico, Pinkfresh, Dear Lizzy, Jillibean Soup), Mist (Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Navy), Enamel dots (wholesale)

I had no direction for this layout other than the stitching and the photo I used of Teddy. It ended up getting pretty mangled in the car, so I cut out several smaller "Sweet Dreams" to cover up some of the creases. I usually don't do much photo editing for the photos going onto my layouts, but this time I added the heart bokeh and I love how it frames Teddy, and the tones match the layout so well! I kept adding stars with various textures: acrylic, enamel, and wood! I love the way it turned out. Of course, I had to add a bow to the layout to symbolize Teddy's trademark bow tie! 


The embroidery floss I used was really neat! I found it at Michael's, and it was dyed with different shades of blue and purple all throughout. I'm going to keep my eye out for more colors!

Have a great day :)
