Hello! I'm back today with two more layouts that I created with the gorgeous August Clique Kit "Rio". For these ones I did hours of hand stitching, and then used my new Close to My Heart watercolours on one.
The first layout is a photo of Azaria that I took on New Years Day. I enlarged one of the exclusive cut file flowers, and repositioned it on the Silhouette software by rotating it to provide a place for my photo. After I stitched it I painted it, and then cut it out. This enabled me to position my photo above one of the petals and under two of the leaves. I kept embellishment very simple to focus on the photo and the flower.
I made a process video.
For my second layout I used another one of the exclusive cut file and hand stitched it in monochromatic pink tones to match Brielle's top. I love how this one turned out too, which is a relief because it literally took me hours to stitch! If you saw my mini album, this photo was the final favourite photo that I was after, and of course it deserved its own page in her album!
I made a process video for this one too.
Thanks for looking!
