Hello again! Lately I've noticed lots of sewn strips and layers in my collection of lovely paper crafting pins on Pinterest. Sewing the layers to projects gives them some texture with the added bonus of keeping them affixed to your layout forever!
As with all of my projects, I lay the layers in their general location and move them around until I am satisfied with the look. I typed out a favorite quote with our old typewriter, then cut it into strips. Next I sewed some ordinary crepe paper into a ruffle on my sewing machine, then sewed each element onto the layout individually. After each layer was sewn, I ran my finger along each edge to give it a little extra dimension. Finally I added the photos, some stickers and a few sequins to finish it off.
