But onto the project!
This is a simple project that has a cool final effect. Simply stated, it is a black and white photo printed on cardstock with embroidery embellishments.
- Picture printed on b&w on cardstock
- Embroidery floss
- Sharp needles
- Painters's tape
- Apply painter's tape to the back of the photo, where you plan to stitch. This will help keep the paper from ripping.
- Using a sharp needle, stitch with long back-stitches along the outlines of objects. It is important that your holes don't get too close, as the paper will rip. Also, reuse the same hole to connect lines. Finally, before you push you needle through the paper, make sure you are in the right location...you don't what the people in the photo to end up looking like voodoo dolls!
- Crop and frame!
Oh! What a good day that was...and what a good man I have!
