I thought it would be fun to share with you one of the reasons why I love to Sew on Paper. For this demonstration I made 4 simple post cards using Watercolor Post card paper as my base, vintage wall paper, scraps of paper bags from my favorite store and lovely printed Cotton Scrapsfrom Crafty Secrets.Look at the first image that's posted above of this lovely Hello postcard, it's pretty - but it's a little bland in my eyes.
Now take a look at it in the image below, with turquoise machine stitching added to it. I don't know about you, but the added texture and color really take this from nicely boring to NICELY fantastic!
You can check out my Flickr to see the other examples I made! Thanks Sandy for sending me those Cotton Scraps...it took me forever to do something with them, but hey better late than never is my motto lately!
