“Field Trip Selfie”, by Becki Adams.
It's that time of year, field trips, graduations, concerts, finals, and LOTS of school events. I love using bright primary colors to document school memories. I chose to combine 2 Bella Blvd collections, Let's Go and Star Student to create a layout about my son's field trip.
I used basic chipboard stars to embellish this layout. After adhering the stars (and the chipboard title) I stitched them to the background with black embroidery floss.
Typically, I would use my sewing machine but I thought some hand stitching with a string art technique. I love how the hand stitching brings a little bit of texture and interest to the chipboard elements on my page.
This is a technique I will be using again and again, I love the look of the black stitches over chipboard.
