Create an Edge to Your Layout



I love this picture of my two nieces. Lindsey got to go visit her new sister in Guatamala.



I wanted a little bit of an edge to the page -- but didn't want to distract for those cute little owls or the picture -- so I stitched close to the edge and then used a bit darker distressing ink and rubbed it into the edge. I like the effect...an instant subtle border. Try it...and let me see what you come up with.

  2. OK, I am so inspired by that technique - now I just need to figure out that stinkin' sewing machine of mine!
