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!
Hello, friends! Today I wanted to share a little peak into one of my favorite Bible journaling techniques. I love slathering on all kinds of mixed media into my Bible. I couldn’t think of a more perfect collection than the Shine Bright collection to accompany a little bit of mixed media mess!

I know you’re not shocked at this point that I’ve brought you another page from my TRG Crafty Club Playbook. This time I’m using the new Vault collection, Adored! The great thing about the new Reset Girl collections is that now come with Cut Files!
The color scheme of this vault collection is so so pretty, and I couldn’t wait to get some of those florals in my Playbook.
Matthew 6:19-21 (ESV)
19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Psalm 139:13-14 (ESV)
13 For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
