6 x 6 Paper Play with April

Hi everyone!  April here to share the second layout I created as an insert to my PL week 22.

For this layout, I used the scraps from my 6x6 pad to create the layers behind my two pictures.  I'd love to tell you that I have an actual "process" of where I put what, but I don't.. lol!  I usually have a picture(s) and the materials that I want on a layout, then I just add things, remove things, move them around, until everything looks "just right."  But sometimes, if I can't get it to look "right" - I just shrug my shoulders and say, "this is good enough" and I move on!

This was one of those layouts.  After I got the layers mounted to a spot that was good enough, I decided it would be a good idea to use my Handy Stitch hand sewer to sew a border around the blue cardstock.  That thing has a mind of it's own, so please excuse the crazy, random stitching.  I'm telling myself the crazy stitching gives my layouts personality! Haha!

I love making banners!

Sorry for the bad lighting in this picture, but I wanted to show you where the "babes" in the title came from.  I love using this technique to incorporate different alphas to my spreads.

Here's a close-up of the alphas on my layout and also a close-up of how bad my stitching is.
