Faking it

A simple layout I made for It's A Creative World.

Pre-made embellies from the £ shop and fake stitching:

One of my fave scrapping tools is my dressmakers wheel - I've actually got three - all with a different sized wheel, and they're great for adding faux stitching.

If you want a straight line use a ruler, otherwise freehand is ok. Run you wheel along and it leaves a little row of stitch holes, then go over the line very lightly with a fineliner. I use Steadtler triplus fineliners 0.3mm, which come in a rainbow of colours.

Still loads of snow around here which frankly, ceased to be fun long ago... tho it's pretty enough I suppose.

Oh well, plenty to do today so i'd better scarper now.

Happy Saturday!

I wanted you to know I was thinking of you just now. I popped over and saw that you are doing a little crafty therapy. Gorgeous snow pictures too!!! Anyway, don't know you that well, but you are in my thoughts.
