Exit 353 with Process Video

This was such a fun layout to work on and not just because of all the yumminess in the photos. I started with the sketch for this weeks Nuts About Sketches. Be sure to check it out and create your own layout with this weeks sketch. Share a link here when you do and I'll be sure to check it out.

I'm often asked about my process and how I start a page so I decided to try and do a process video. I had a lot of issues with technology so it's not all I wanted it to be but hopefully it will answer some of those questions for you. Be sure to let me know if you want to see more of these.

I used paper that was left after a few layouts. As you can see in the video I didn't even have a full sheet left but more than enough to do a layout. In fact I still have enough I think I could get one more layout.

I played around with the sketch and decided to cut around the hexagons in the patterned paper to do the background where the sketch showed a circle. Then I added some individual ones to the edges to create flow across the page. I stitched around some of them and across the ones at the top and bottom. Not a lot but it does give that extra texture, layer, and little extra pop.

Supplies used -
Paper - Authentique
Ink - CTMH Black
stitching guide
Foam Mat
Piercing Tool
embroidery floss
Fancy Pants Park Bench Label Stickers
