Stitching on photos tutorial

Amy Tangerine Stitched PhotoI have been wanting to create a framed series of photos of Jack with stitching on them for quite some time. After receiving these enlargements from Persnickety Prints (my favorite size right now is 8″x12″), I decided to go for it. Using a the best white pen, a Uni-ball Signo, I began by writing out the second line of journaling because I wanted to fill in as much of the grass with stitching as possible.Amy Tangerine Stitched Photo Amy Tangerine Stitched PhotoThen I took a We R Memory Keepers brad setter (you can use any paper piercer) and began poking holes about 1/4″ apart.

Not quite sure how I am going to frame it – either a simple floating frame or perhaps I’ll just get it done professionally. I am loving the texture and how it turned out.

      Hi! This is Aunt Lydia’s crochet thread in size 10. But when I use floss, I use the whole strand, without separating any of it.
