Celebrating the 4th of July with Bella Blvd

Hey Everyone! Happy 4th  of July (well, almost). I have a layout to share from the Bella Blvd blog. I was sent this image to use a inspiration...
What inspired me about this photo was the essence of the photo. To me this photo is all about a bright happy picnic sort of a day so I chose to create a layout with a picnic theme. I started this layout by creating a large yellow sun. I created the sun my misting a piece of white cardstock with yellow mist and then stitching around the edges with bright orange embroidery floss.
 The journaling block didn't turn out quite as I intended it so I ended up hiding the journaling behind the title.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! :) Have you tried hand stitching on any of your projects? I'd love to see. Leave me a link in the comments and I'll make sure to take a peek :)
