I wanted to share a little design I made using Simple Stories Summer Fresh line. I love Simple Stories as a rule, and this line is no different. It has burlap and denim elements (which I find super inspiring) as well as lots of greens, reds, yellows and blues.
This design features a photo of my daughter (which she disliked and says makes her cute nose look huge; NOT!) But I love it because her cheeks are rosy and her smile is sweet. I want to remember these young features when she has grown up.
I used a piece of patterned paper that had a large chevron on it and fussy cut it out. I machine stitched the top and bottom in black thread. I also used some white paint to provide a visual highlight for my small cluster in the upper right and lower right. I cut a large flower from burlap and layered a Prima flower with a bright yellow button.
I hope you will give this button garland idea a try! Until next time, keep doing what you love to do.
