The Viewfinder kit from Cocoa Daisy is now on sale - go check it out! This is a fun and fab kit that has some travel themed items, but that is totally useful also for non-travel layouts, as examplified by my layouts below... :)
This is the main kit - I really love the stitching template and the floss!
I used the template on this layout and then covered my stitching with gesso, paint and mist.
On this layout I stitched one of the words on top of my photo. I used a white mist to add a very subtle pattern to the background.
My third layout is a bit messy and a fab example of the strategy "if you aren't happy with what you've created - add more paint!". :)
