I was in New York City about 4 years ago and visited the 9/11 tribute centre and memorial. It was really quite a remarkable place. The display at the tribute centre was extraordinary. The items that they were able to retrieve from the devastation was displayed in a very respectful way.
When I put these pages together I wanted to add some texture without taking away from the photos. Please scroll down to take a look.
|I used as combination of sponging, stamping and stitching to give texture and create focal points on the pages..|
|To help make the lettering stand out, I cut each letter out twice in coordinating cardstock. I simply layered the crumb cake letters over the cherry cobbler letters to give it a shadow appearance.|
|I hand stitched the cross stitch. To do this I used the piercing tool, piercing guide and piercing mat to make the holes. I then threaded white bakers twine into a large darning needled and stitched away!|
