Trying something new

This evening I had a go at something different and I love how it turned out!

Using an embroidery hoop and natural calico fabric as the base, I cut the fabric about 2 inches larger than the hoop then stencilled onto it with Ranger Distress Oxide inks before stretching it in the hoop.

The papers and words were from the Simple Stories – I Am paper pad and I fussy cut the butterflies from one of the papers and the word strips from another. The flowers are handmade.

The words are very apt and reflect everything my daughter is and has become in the last 23 years. X
