FLY AWAY, KITE

This is my first layout as a Let's Scrap DT.





There's lots of stitching in it: the kite threads, the doodles on the patterned paper, the letters, the clouds. It is time consuming to hand stitch all over the layout, but I always like the results. I wanted the clouds to be different so for each cloud I cut three clouds in slightly different sizes and different patterned papers, inked them, played a little bit with the borders, and stitched them.


I didn't have any vintage paper for the kite, so I had to make my own by creasing some kraft paper and photocopying a dictionary page on it!
