I painted a "frame" around the photo with four colors and then added some hand stitching in four similar colors of DMC embroidery floss.
There are also some flair buttons from A Flair For Buttons.
I fussy cut some circles from Echo Park's Summer Bliss Collection and embellished the circles with some sequins.
The title "Beach Waves" is from Just Nick Digital Cut Files. I die cut the title with my Silhouette Cameo on white card stock and used paint dabbers to color the die cuts instead of looking for some colored card stock. I think they turned out very well and they coordinate nicely with the colors of the layout.
I played along with Sketch #107 over at My Scraps And More.
I hope you are inspired to create a layout with some hand stitching and some paint dabbers. Have a great day!
