Can I just tell you how exciting this is to me? I have been very nervous to try stitching on paper for some reason. I don't know what I thought was going to happen ... maybe my needle might break or the paper would tear and ruin my machine, but I got over it. Yes I did. And I stitched right on my page.
This is simply a square of canvas cut to size, edges frayed a bit, and stamped with acrylic paint using the foliate cube stamp, from Stampendous. After adhering it to the paper I went over it with a line of stitching. The machine (and I) survived. Nothing broke or smoked, or melted down or anything. Whew!
Next I added one of my inked pebbles that's been in a dish in the window sill just waiting for the right project, with heavy-duty glue dots. The tiny pine cone found a home today.
