I can't believe that we're already on Wednesday!!! What a week it's been. I've done all manner of crafty things that I can't wait to share with you all, so watch this space folks!!
Well I'm here to share the final of my samples that I made for Polkadoodles (Nikky Hall) when she was on Create & Craft a few months ago with the Colour Therapy 2 Collection.
I have loved embroidery and especially cross stitch for years and years and haven't done any for a while so when I bought some printable fabric on trip to Yarndale last year to buy some wool stash I just knew I had to have some of it even though I didn't have the right project to use it. When Nikky released the adult colouring pages I just knew I had found the ideal project I could use this for!
So I searched through the Colour Therapy 2 Collection and found a great image that would look good embroidered and set about printing it onto my printable fabric. I then bought a hoop that would fit the fabric neatly (7" round) and set about doing some satin stitch and French knots all over the little circles varying the colours the DMC threads as I went along and then the straight lines connecting the circles were ideal for doing some beading. I used a very fine needle for the beads to be threaded onto and used three different colours as well to tone in with the embroidery cotton I'd chosen.
I hope you like my make and it just shows that you don't need to stick to colouring with pens and making cards with the adult colouring pages created by Nikky as there are a lot more things that can be done with them and the only limit to your creativity is your own mind.
My mind is bursting with ideas of the things I can create with these adult colouring pages and I've got another embroidery on the go but you'll have to wait a few weeks before I can show you that make. It's a special present for somebody so it's all under wraps at the moment!!
