Art Studio: Distressing and Hand Sewing


Blog Image_Art Studio


Hello there! It’s Caroli here and today I want to show you this layout I made using distressing and hand sewing.

As you can see, I used a lot of triangles, they are very trendy lately, but I wanted to add a special touch to my triangles, so I use a distresser tool on the edges and also hand-sew around it for a more interesting texture and volume.



Also, I created a sequins pocket with one of the triangles using vellum and some star-shaped sequins inside, love how it looks 🙂



I love the soft and delicate look of all patterned paper from Lemon Owl, they are great for mixing and very modern.



I used a gold doily from my stash and placed it behind my pic, and then used one of the butterflies from the embellishment strips to decorate. I cut the same shape in vellum and placed it under it so as to add more volume.





I hope you like the idea and dare to distress and hand sew some triangles on your layout. Have a nice monday!
