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!
Make sure to jump over to the Pretty Little Studio Blog to see all the details!
I had a little fun with this month’s LGL prompts, and I think I’ll be keeping this stand around to add more LGL prompts in future months!
I plan to simply add all kinds of journaling cards, tags, and little bits to this stand, as I document each month’s LGL prompts!
To pretty up the stand a bit, by adding some ribbon to the rings. I’d like to grab a bright color of spray paint in the future to make it really pop. Stay tuned for a video detailing that process!
There’s a lot of real heart that goes into the pages of my art journal, and sometimes I don’t give this unsuspecting little book enough attention. When I creak open its pages after a long time away, I find days of struggles melt into the act of layering all sorts of mediums and paints onto these pages. It’s a wide open space to say everything I need.
With a little help from a pretty paper from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams Collection, I fussy-cut a million little florals and leaves. I almost always work with florals in my art journal because they just melt delicately into any medium I splash on the background.
These florals were backed with a light pink color, so I knew I’d be overlaying my background blues and teals with some pink to help the florals nestle.
