Thanks for visiting today. It has been so cold here in Northern California. I have spent all week bundled up - trying to get warm. Whenever it is cold out, I can find my two dogs Kona, and Lilo snuggled together. They are so affectionate with one another and are always together.
I made this layout about the two of them snuggled together. They are so cute! I can't stand it.
title: Hugs and kisses
Look for me soon in Create:Vintage Modern Idea book July 2013
I used a file (Ampersand) that I cut with my silhouette as a mask, I placed it on my paper, misted around it and then hand stitched with embroidery floss around it. The stitching took a long time to finish, but I did it while I was watching a movie with the kids.
I mostly stuck to neutrals on this layout, but added little pops of color in my buttons.
I added the hand stitched word "hugs" to a canvas tag.
