Sewing is one of my FAVORITE techniques to do on a LO! So I challenge you this month to use sewing on a page or pages. You can do it by machine or hand, but no faux stitching. That means NO digital or doodled stitching.

*Twist* For an extra vote at the end of the month stitch around your photo.

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 8/1/13, and you have until 8/31/13 to enter.
2)It can be any size,paper only, 2 pager,a card, and/or a mini album.
3)Link LO to this thread and please enable public embedding.
4)If you get love please return the favor
5)LO can be used in other challenges here or on other sites.
6)1 entry per person.

To do PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

To link LO's:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on the 'link/embed' words.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

At the end of the month PM me with your top 3 LO's and include your own #. Then I'll do a poll where we can vote for a winner.

My Examples with the twist:
Tiny By DreaSlee

I heart Summer ~ August BOAF Kit By DreaSlee

Dumbo ~ BOAF August Kit Reveal By DreaSlee

Irene screams for ice cream ~ BOAF August Kit Reveal By DreaSlee

I'm not sure how I missed signing up for this one but I am in again. I bought a machine like mine on eBay for parts. Hopefully, between the 2, I can get one good working machine. It is very basic but it will be a good starter for DD and it will do the stitching I need for my LOs. Sure hope DH can figure out how to get it working.

The machine I bought for parts arrived today. Now, when DH has a few minutes, I'll have to see what we can do to make one good machine.

Drea, I just read your blog about your LO. First, you are so talented in knowing where to place your various mists, masks, and stencils. Bravo! I have a question. I have seen a few LOs with gesso and it adds great texture. What is it (a powder, a paste, a paint)? And, is it difficult to work with?

You're so sweet Kelly! Thank you!Gesso is really a primer for artists. They use it on their canvas before painting, but it's just like a paste. I used an old credit card to apply it over my stencil. Then just wait for it to dry.

Here's my submission:

Mom Shelling By Klweist

I haven't got my machine running yet so I am still hand stitching on my LOs. I used my In Stitchz template for the waves.

I prefer hand stitching, but I did use my machine for this one.

Hey Ladies, I just wanted to take a quick informal poll. A while back, Pat (gentlewood farms) had a re-do challenge. The idea was that, if you had a LO you didn't exactly like or that you would like to do over for whatever reason, you would do it for this challenge. There are a couple of mine I would like to have a "do-over" for because I am more familiar with my personal style and product preferences now. Plus, one I did was just ugly!! If you could, just chime in to say if you would be interested in a do-over challenge. Thanks!!

Good morning everyone.

Kelly, regarding your do over challenge - I for one am not a "do over" kinda gal. I admit there are some los that I SHOULD probably do over. But I think once I started, I would probably find fault with every lo and I would be spending all my time redoing los.

I know MANY scrappers who do "do over" a "BAD" lo. So I am sure you will find quite a few to enter a challenge.

I feel the same way. But you should just go for it Kelly!

Everyone still has until midnight to enter. Then you can PM your top 3 votes,(numbers only) and let me know if you did the twist, and what your entry # is.Don't forget to title your post with "Sewing Votes" since I also host the Stamping Challenge. Have a great Labor Day weekend!!
