I get so caught up thinking of other things (ie. my family, my toddler, or my daily needs), that I often forgot to feed the most important thing in my life, my soul! Everything else in our lives is fed from our souls, and it’s so important to properly nourish it!
This amazing cover by The Pink Barlow for The Reset Girl was the foundation of this page in my Bible, and I cannot get enough of it! I covered a few words on the artwork to create the perfect title for my particular project, as it normally says, “Girl Love Your Self.” I just loved the mix of patterns and bright colors.
I couldn’t wait to fussy-cut some pieces from the cover to layer on my Bible page. I trimmed down some pieces and moved them around to perfectly suit my needs, but I love the outcome!
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!
