I have to say it right now…this project has been on my to-do list for over a year…ever since I saw this awesome Stitched Photo Art Project on A Beautiful Mess. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted something so fabulous and handmade on my walls too! I even went so far to print the pictures I wanted to stitch. Then there it sat for a year.
I finally finished it! Now, I don’t consider myself the embroidering type. I love the look of it, the possibilities, and the genuinely handmade, vintage-y feel of it but I feel like I just don’t know what I am doing well enough to conquer a real embroidery project. This, I feel, is manageable.
I printed a simple black and white photo of some flowers I had in the house. Then stitched here, and there, until I got the look I was hoping for. Started with blue, added some pink, and ended up really wanting some purple in there too to match my violets. Pretty basic, right!?!?
I do have another print all set for stitching too…I am just not sure how I am going to work it yet because it is in color. Hmmm…
I love my new handmade art though. This is such a fun twist on using photography in home decor! What would you stitch?
