Another Wednesday so another theme for the In My Pocket challenge. Thank you to all of you who joined in last week, I loved all your creations!
This week the theme is A Message of Love.
As usual, if you make your pocket to these dimensions:
And then if you add your theme under the flap of the Pocket so it is "secret".
I made mine using those fab new papers by Basic Grey from the Euphoria collection. Aren't they lush? I also used some Stitchels flower and heart stamps, layering the flowers and adding buttons for the middles of them.
I painstakingly sat for hours, sewing white thread through all the Stitchels......ah...nearly had you going there!! Anyone who knows me, knows I am useless with a needle and thread, so I cheated!!! I used the Ranger Inkessentials White pen, and just drew little white lines inbetween each dot on the Stitchel image LOL
My little message is from the song I Love You Because by Jim Reeves, ah, I bet most of you are too young to remember this one but it is one of my faves......and I added the little message onto a little folded tag that I made, also using the BG papers.
I hope you enjoy this theme and once you have made your Pocket, please add a comment here and add a link to the place where you are showing your artwork.
Thanks for looking,
