Huge accomplishment in my scrapbook room today –I learned how to sew a button on a LO! I know, I know, I have been scrapping for ten years and I grew up in a home with a Mother who sew these elaborate ball gowns and my sister and my grandma all sew. I should know how to sew right? NOT! Well, today I put three buttons on a Layout and thought how cool it would look if I would actually use thread and sew them on! Could not figure out for the life of me how to get it in the hole through the back of the paper. I know what some of you are thinking about when I just posted about finding the hole, but that what this blog is about, so please get your minds out of the gutter? LOL! I just drug you to the sewer huh? Oh, so I digressed. Sorry, back to the hole (button holes that is! I discovered that if I took my poker (not that kind of poker, but the one we use in scrap booking that pokes things)and poked through the holes first and then flipped the paper over I could sew it perfectly! Now off to try this on shirts with lost buttons instead of just tossing them in a pile for my Mom to fix when she comes to visit!I know this is not that grand to most of you, but here is a picture of the buttons I did this afternoon!
Close up of the embellishments in the lower corner. Robin always inspires me on Scrapgoods with how she does her embellishments and placement of them! I used Metallic ink on the journal block’s backside. I also used metallic ink on the bird, but I did a darker ink on the back and a lighter on the front. I then glimmer misted the little dude and outlined him with metallic pens.
Lastly, a LO of you oldest son on the quad. Can you believe that this took two long hours to complete? I scratched up the black Card stock (that took forever) and then I used liquid glass on the small picture in the circle to make it look like a bubble. I also distressed the letters.
