January- New Techniques

This scrapbook page was a challenge using a button border and sewing. I have frequently used buttons and always enjoy embellishing my work with them. I have never tried to sew on cardstock however, but now that I have tried it, I will continue to use it in my work. I sketched a flower stem and leaves first as a guide and then used my sewing machine.




This card is for a challenge using inspiration from a child's book, TV, or cartoon character. I chose Dorothy from "The Wizard of Oz." I decided that a terrier mounted with foam dots on a rainbow colored background was perfect. The red glittered "Believe" seemed to be the perfect sentiment. It was a fun card to make.
