Yesterday while blog hopping around I saw a piece of work that had some simple stitching and just a few French knots that was so effective I thought I would have a play. Check out the piece I saw here ALICE AND CAMILLA
So off to a journal I went............I was wondering (I do that a lot now I have so much more time on my hands!!) what I did before I discovered working in journals? I think they make the perfect places to play around and experiment in especially like yesterday when you see something you want to try out. Instead of working on bits of card etc that you wonder what to do with afterwards you have your journals to look back through.........so much fun!
Anyway back to the stitching.............I stamped the bird and then added the long straight stitches to look like grass and the French knots in amongst.
Finally I decided to stitch this page to the one after it to hide all the mess at the back and did that with just straight stitch around the edges.
