Would you like to join our workshop this month? I received some beautiful layouts featuring wooden embellishments in unique and fun ways. Wooden embellishments are hot
right now and they come in different shapes and forms such as wooden paper, buttons, alphas, doilies, flags, clothes pins and so much more. I love how these embellishments can
add a little homey feel to your project.
Looking at these beautiful layouts, wouldn’t you agree that they feel like home? I just love how Renea hand stitched through the wooden doilies to help make them her own.
I like how Ashley kept it simple by leaving her wooden alphas naked; this goes to show that these embellishments can look beautiful in their simplest form.

Design Notes: Don't be afraid to use a strong color for your background, I used turquoise). Moderate it by choosing a contrast color (such as orange) and a soft color (here white and brown). If you put a frame
around your picture, it will also help to focus on it.
Journaling: Enjoying outdoor lunch, next to the cathedral of Viseu. Weather and food are great. I just love this town located in the north-east of Portugal.
