Paper scraps and stiching / Felicity Wilson

Hello! Felicity here today to share with you a layout inspired by this months moodboard and my favorite technique of stitching.

I often have lots of scraps left over from projects and I hoard them. My stash of paper scraps is ignominious! Please tell me I am not alone. I decided to use a few bit and pieces up by cutting them into squares and then stitching them together to create a background for my page.
Very patchwork style, but I love it.

Then because I didnt want to cover all those squares up, I decided to use some white cardstock to use as a base to build the rest of page.   I wanted to carry through the grid design from the squares of paper, so I hand stitched a grid and then add some embellishments to each of those rectangles.

I used long stitch, cross stitch and back stitch in my page. I did alot of cross stitching many years ago, so I love adding in those different stitches I learnt then.

Hope this inspires you use up scraps and add some detail with hand stitching.
