How many hobbies do you have? I have a ton! I love the fiber and paper world. I find that several scrappers also knit…that is what this layout is about. I desperately wanted to be a sock knitter. BY. ANY. MEANS.NECESSARY. I learned to knit from You-Tube and this awesome DVD. I got the bug for socks..can’t be that hard….right. I got some worsted yarn and a pattern and I was off. I finished the sock and was like..well it sorta looks like a sock but for a Cave Man! Ack back to the needles. I tried a second sock the heel was better but this wearer would need to be into Chinese foot binding. I was there. The point where you realize you need help. I took a sock knitting class with the fantastic Lisa, owner of SIFU Design Studio. Now I am a #SockKnitter!
For this layout I actually used the same cardstock but I turned one upside down so that they were not identical. I purchased this cardstock and the Scrapbook expo last year and held on to it until I found the best story to pair with it. I used my silhouette to cut out a honeycomb background TIP: use the negative and positive in your layouts. I needed to make this have a color pop so I added yellow into the negative on the page.
I wanted to pull the design from the paper so and it worked and I had lots of room for journaling.
I also didn’t want to add because I knew I had a serious story to tell so I added a few layers and embellishments.
I ran the glassine bag through my embossing folder and BAM…I loved it!
P.S. I have a new blog related to other craftiness HERE.
