So Star Spangled

This layout and video has been in the works for a while because it’s a special collaboration.

So Star Spangled

Before jumping into the layout, I’ll give you the collaboration details.

This layout is a collaboration for Grace Islander’s July Scrapathon! For this challenge, we scraplifted one of each other’s layouts and went with a Fourth of July theme. Her layout is here.

Learn more about the scrapathon and join the scrapathon Facebook group.

We’d love it if you participated! There will be prizes including one from the April Lilli Store. The grand prize is only available to US residents, but other prizes are available internationally. If you create a project inspired by this challenge and post it to social media, please use the #julyscrapathon hashtag so we can see it.

Now let’s talk about the layout.

  • Here’s the layout by Grace Islander that inspired this page. I loved the diagonal design and mixed media elements.
  • I haven’t done hand stitching in a while, but I love how it looks. It is a time-consuming process, though. I just did it during my TV-watching time and felt so productive. LOL. Still, I was relieved when it was complete.
  • The original title for the page was Star Spangled. But that left me with an awkward trapped space between the “r” and the light blue star  next to it. So I pulled up the title and added the word “So” to the beginning.
  • I used a set of star Framelits as templates for both the sewing and the misting. You can get a better idea about that in the process video.
  • Many embellishments were brought together in the making of this layout. Lots of stickers, chipboard, and acrylic pieces. Plus several papers from my scraps. It was fun to put all of this together.

Here is the process video.

Thanks for visiting. See you next time! :)
