Today is the last Saturday challenge over at the Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition. The challenge for today was to include anything with real or faux stitching. I have to say the hardest thing about sewing for real on paper is getting out the machine.
For my art book I grabbed scraps of designer series paper and scrunched them all up, layered them, and then stitched around the edges for a quirky added bit of texture. I cheated and only stitched the papers together then I glued them to the art book. I was totally happy with the tiny bit of red showing where the papers are more heavily distressed.
For my notebook cover I used all Stampin' Up! products
