Shopping our Stash #150 - Inspiration Photo


We have the most amazing inspiration photo for the challenge this week at Shopping our Stash -  I printed out the challenges ahead of time, and have seriously been looking at this photo and drooling over it for a month already!

Source


I was inspired by the colours & the AWESOME BUTTONS!



Supplies: paper & flower sticker from Sassafrass; lace from Recollections; sentiment from PTI; Peacock Feathers distress ink; heart veneer from Studio Calico; buttons, embroidery floss, from stash


The paper is already printed with stitched & lacy elements, so I pierced through some of those & added real stitching. And then I kept piercing & stitching, adding french knots, stitching on the lace, and pretty much just doodling with thread. The patterned flower is actually a sticker - to be able to sew on the button & have the petals bend up I rubbed the adhesive area with baby powder. 

You KNOW that clock has your creative juices going... come & play along with us until next Monday, May 12th!  Make sure you hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


xoxo,
Jessi

I knew somehow you'd like the buttons here. heh heh Lovely take on the photo!

And because of you, I took a bag of floss with me to my crop last weekend to sew stuff. I have several ideas floating in the grey matter.
