I knit my daughter a sweater.
Overlay, edge, and paper value packs on sale now in the store!
I used Potpourri paper #4 for my base, then stacked a bunch of the other PotPourri papers atop on color blend mode to add extra subtle texture. I added my photo, doing a simple brush/layer-mask extraction. The Artist Edge Overlays were really useful here as a way to define the photo, a selfie that was cut off at both the top and the bottom—I used one overlay as a frame and another as an accent. Also, I got some deeper pop on the paper texture at the bottom by duplicating my background paper (#4) on color burn blend mode, then whisking away the top of the duplication with a layer mask. Two stitched borders—one straight, one askew—finished off this design, and I also added a branch and a handful of buttons.
