Welcome to the February Club Scrap Blog Hop featuring this month's kit, Crewel & Unusual. If you arrived here from Inkstained Roni's blog then you are in the right place. If not, be sure to check out Karen's post over at Club Scrap for a complete list of participating blogs.

I began with a template created digitally in iScrapbook to ensure all my paper pieces would fit the collage perfectly and be visually pleasing.
When I was young, my mom used to do crewel embroidery, and this kit has brought back some wonderful memories of learning this craft from her.
|I gathered a selection of embroidery floss in matching kit colors handed down to me from my Grandma Wright.|
I printed out the Letter Art quote from the Crewel & Unusual Digital Kit onto the Ivory paper. I pierced holes into the paper and then added real embroidery to the panel. Check out Jac's Virtual Pizza Box video for details on how to use these elements in your paper projects.
I created a faux canvas, using two 9x11" sheets of Pizza Box cardboard layered and topped with a piece of heavy duty mat board, rescued from the recycling bin as it was the backing off a mixed media art paper pad.
I wrapped the edges with Washi Tape prior to adhering the patchwork of papers.
I adhered all of my embellishments to the paper pieces with Club Scrap Bookbinding Glue prior to attaching to the final project.
Here are some details from my project.
