I'd recently been playing with old and vintage photos, trying to come up with creative ways of re-use. Then, my boyfriend sent me THIS LINK featuring an artist doing AMAZING work using embroidery on a photo, and I am in love! I love the particular picture above where the bride literally BLOOMS on her special day. So cool.
A STITCH SITCH.
It reminds me a bit of another artist I follow, Kathy Laskey from Silverton, Colorado. Her Instagram is full of fanciful re-workings of vintage imagery topped off with embroidery. I definitely recommend a follow or you can bookmark her Etsy shop HERE.

EVERYTHING IS MOST DEF
Here's something I did last year, pretty primitive compared to the above artists, but hey, ya gotta start somewhere!
Tell me, are YOU a creative or artistic sort? What do you like to work with?

Not much talent, but I did just co-host a cool hat making class-- we used paper bags to make Mad Hatter hats!
Becky that sounds like fun! I’d love to try my hand at making a whimsical topper! Xo
Cool idea! I buy old photos and postcards with thought about converting them into fun gifts to friends. I never imagined modifying them; thanks for the notion.
Ally- I agree- old pics make fun gifts so sure.
The "Blooming Bride" is wonderful! So much creativity in the world if we are open to it.
YEAH I LOVE THE BUD! <3 <3 <3
