little man


Lifted this LO from Maryanne (scarysstuff)blog link on right.

Had some fun with the corrugated cardboard. Once I separated the layers I sanded back the bits stuck in the grooves of the bit I wanted to keep. Cleaned it up really well.

Discovered that if you want to machine sew on corrugated cardboard it will be much easier on your machine if u press with your thumb the area that you will sew. Even up the stitching and feeds thru the machine so much better.

Had a bit more fun with Photoshop with the journal card. printed it onto Kraft card to tie in with the cardboard and the undressed chip word.

The vintage prima bloom and the fabo leaves that I am still loving go perfectly with this LO. Dressmaking pins are for interest.
