For this Scrapbook page I used the gorgeous Basic grey sweet threads papers, I'm lucky that they actually matched the coat & dress the Queen was wearing that day!
I used a sheet of green cardstock which I then distressed with sandpaper & painted the edges with some white paint to age it.
I covered the centre in newspaper cuttings from the royal visit and then using a sewing machine sewed a square frame over the top of the newspaper.
I made the large flower in the bottom corner using a catseye ink pad as a template. I cut out several petals and then made slightly smallers ones. I finished it off with a button in the centre.
I cut out some swirls from the patterned paper & finished off with some thread & mulberry roses.
For this LO I used Basic Grey Sweet Threads Knotted shirt paper
and Lacy organic
