Girlie Grunge Blog Hop Girlie Embroidery Hoop (Day 1!!)

Welcome to the Girlie Grunge Blog Hop! We have 3 days of projects and inspiration all featuring Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products, and 4 fabulous prizes to give away! Join us August 6-8, each day six of our talented designers will dazzle and amaze you with ideas for cards, scrapbook pages and mixed media projects, for crafters of all skill levels.


I decided to do something that is in trend right now, embroidery hoops, and with one of my favorite pictures (a group of girls on a recent road trip to Iowa for a special friend's wedding). Here's the embellished hoop commemorating an amazing time!


For the background, I wanted texture so I weaved nine pieces of 9½" length of Canvas Ribbon White Canvas Ribbons enough to cover the 8" hoop and secured with Extreme Double-Sided Tape - 1/2" Premium. Secure the woven piece in the hoop and trim the edges.


From two pieces of patterned paper, I cut photo mats to layer on top of each after the edges were distressed and colored with Pigment Powder - Brown.


With a combination of the Spiral Blossom Four die and Lace Ribbons Crochet Scalloped Eyelet Trim, I rolled and adhered them with Dodz™ - XL. I added a touch of Pigment Powder - Pink on the tops of the ribbon flowers.



Now for the FUN part - ASSEMBLE! First I adhered Lace Ribbons Crocheted Lace 1" Trim, photo mats and photo. Then placed all the flowers with Dodz™ - XL. To add accents, I pulled out the 3D Foam Swirls and colored them with Pigment Powder - Pink. I placed them for a soft accent to the flowers.



Here's another look...
