So Lovely |Adding Flair to Ephemera

Song of Songs Bible Journaling Page using Bella Blvd Secrets of the Sea - Lydia Cost

I’ve recently been eye-ing all the beautiful embroidery thread creations on Pinterest, and I’m especially obsessed with the embroidered hair!  I just couldn’t help but add a little pizazz to this gorgeous mermaid from the Bella Blvd Secrets of the Sea collection.

I knew I wanted to add some really long dark braids to the pretty little lady, but she already had a top bun.  I went about cutting off her pretty little bun to make room for some long locks!


After removing her bun, I began by stitching on the hair on the top of the head, matching the pattern that was illustrated on the ephemera.  I finished stitching at the bottom of each corner of her head to string several strands below her ears for those long brads!


I left one side open so that it appear as if she was still braiding, since her hand was in the perfect position.  Isn’t she just the cutest?!


I added her to my Bible page along with a few pieces of other ephemera, alphas, and some ciao chips.  It was a super simply page, but I wanted that lovely little mermaid to do all the talking!

Thanks so much for joining me today!  I hope you’re inspired to add a little flair to your favorite ephemera!
