My post this month is inpired by this cushion, from John Lewis. A while back, they also had one with LOVE on the front which is blatantly lifted to form this layout.
I hand drew some letters on graph paper before transferring to patterned papers. To give the letters a little definition, I stitched all the way round the L and E on the sewing maching before adding some sequins. I hand stitched the large heart and added some mistable camera shapes ( that I left plain, is that a crime ? ). The V was cut from the fabrip. Here’s a closer look at those letters.
Next is a layout about our trip to the Olympic Park so I drew and cut out LONDON from a variety of patterned paper. I made the first O slightly smaller to draw the viewer’s attention to it so that I can further add 2012.
This is how I made the letters. Each letter is formed from 3 square wide by 5 square high. The short first O is 4 square high. To make the large letters for Love, I simply treated 2 squares as 1. I cut them out and trace onto patterned paper. The cutting wasn’t very precise either…I simply used a small scissors.
I still had plenty of supply so I made “2 boys” where I drew and cut out 2.
That’s all from me this month. Are you ready for school ? I think I still have a blazer to pick up from the dry cleaners LOL.
