Carol's WIRED INSPIRED - Trend Watch - 9/20

I've said it before, but I'll say it again, I love Pinterest!

I think of cool things to do on my layouts, and then I find MORE inspiration on Pinterest!  I love that you click on the photo and you then go to the site/blog where that photo was pinned from!  This clicking has led me to some inspirational blogs!  :D

Well, you know me with my stitching!  I'm in love with my sewing machine!!  ♥♥♥  I remember a long time ago, I saw a layout that had a stitched through title.  I thought it was so cool!  There is just something about the look!

Here's what I found on Pinterest:

Which led me here: STUDIO CALICO BLOG

Here is me trying this a long time ago:

Here is my latest:

To me, the stitched through title really just ties the whole layout together! :D

Of course, I used my Jillibean Soup September DT kit!! :D

So, your challenge is . . . add some interest to your layout title with STITCHING!! Machine stitch, hand stitch, cross stitch . . . whatever you want to do! Just get stitching!! :D

Have fun!!

It is easy to get sucked in when on Pinterest! Love where your trail led! You have mastered the art of art and doing it on titles was natural for you!!!

Love your trail you left us! Great job on the challenge - I don't often sew through my title so I'll have to try that one.
