Patchwork tutorial.

I have a tutorial for you today using on of my pages from my Cocoa Daisy Sept kit.

Fun memories by Kim Watson

Step #1~ Draft your sketch & select your patterned papers you want to use.

Step #2~ Mark out a patchwork map to follow.

Step #3~ Cut your patterned paper pieces.


Step #4~  Position your paper ontop of the map & stick down.

Step #5~ Stitch your patchwork for extra texture.

(Close up of finished patchwork.)

Step #6~ Arrange your page elements based on your sketch, and complete layout.

Just have fun!
I used my Making Memories Slice for my titling & the COOL mist is Tattered Angels CHALKBOARD.

Thanks for stopping by & Happy Wednesday!
