Hello Bee Arty Lovelies,
Hope you're all doing well! Sunila here, and today I'm sharing a pictorial on altering an embroidery hoop.
I enjoy mixed media because it opens up plenty of opportunities to play with. Layers, elements, textures all come together beautifully in a single piece. The altered hoop makes for a great home decor piece as well as a gift for someone special.
Here's a look at the hoop:
Let's begin creating it!
Step 1- I've chosen the Bee The Sunshine Collection for my Hoop. Fussy cut elements, pick out papers for the base and to die cut some elements. Paint the rim of the hoop with Bling Colour Paste.
Step 2- Die cut elements for the hoop. The round frame makes for a great shaker element. Die cut it several times, adhere together for a thicker layer. Cut a circle on a transparent sheet and white cardstock to back it up for the shaker. I've used a piece from the collection with the quote to back my shaker.
Step 3: On the base paper, stencil with colour pastes.
Step 4: Add black stamping on the dried stenciled base.
Step 5- Adhere the hoop onto the base paper. Stamp on the rim of the hoop.
Step 6- Glue the fussy cut elements, the die cut pieces and the focal shaker element to complete the composition.
Hope you enjoyed this creation!
