Wish

This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to be inspired by patchwork. You could patch together a project with scraps, create a quilt-block type project, work with squares of fabric or perhaps make some mosaic work.

I was inspired by the patchwork to create this 12" X 12" holiday layout with sewing many pieces of Santa's image on the page.
I always love sewing and you can find the stitches on most of my creations. The patchwork inspired me to create this layout with many pieces of image sewed together.  



The background paper on this layout are from Tim Holtz Seasonal Paper Pad. I layered the Santa's images that were cut out from the same paper collection qand sewed them in a quilt-like pattern. 


There are many holiday decorations on this page from Tim Holtz dies and embellishments attached.



The gold acrylic paint was added on the embellishments, images and background randomly as a final touch.

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

And happy crafting!

Meihsia :)

  2. Meihsia....your Christmas layout is so beautiful! I love the vintage feel of this! Tim's papers and images certainly lend themselves for something like this. But the way you've added the gold touches, stitched around them and laid them out is fabulous. And that "WISH" clock face....WOW! It just screams "Vintage Christmas"! I love it! <3 Candy
