CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Music to the Eyes

Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Sheila Bennett.

Life is Good layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Chalk It Up Paper Packet, Chalk It Up Scrapbooking Workshop Stamp Set, Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen, Flaxen from Paper Fundamentals Whimsy Assortment, Stitch GuideMake it From Your Heart – Volume 1 (Pattern 06), and Chalk It Up Assortment.

I used the Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen along with the Stitch Guide to create faux stitching on my layout.  I did this on the Paper Fundamentals paper and you can see that it worked pretty well (not quite perfect, but close) on the glossy paper.  I also added some detail to the title stamped image with the Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen.

Now hop on over to Michelle Loncar!
