MCS May Tutorial

Welcome back today!
                                 I thought I would share a quick and easy background with you.
                 It is on the My Creative Scrapbook Blog, and I thought I would share it here as well!
                                                       Here's the Layout I created using it.

Here's how I did it.

Spray a stencil on a piece of light coloured cardstock

I used a Crafters Workshop Stencil and Shimmerz Paints (Heidi Ho Blue Coloringz)

I used a piercing tool to poke holes around the border of the stencil
I tried to keep them fairly even.

I put a foam mat under the cardstock so the piercing tool could go through the paper cleanly

Thread a needle with crochet cotton and so a simple straight stitch.
(up one hole, down the next)

It looks really pretty!

Then I started layering all the accents and embellishments for my page.

The stitched accent adds a lovely amount of dimension in the background.

You can use this technique on Project Life cards, Art Journaling, cards 
and many other papercrafting projects.

you can do it in front of the TV!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
