Favorite Technique Layout by Steffi Ried

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

This week I asked the designers sharing projects to create a layout in her "signature style". One quick glance at this layout and you know it's by Stefanie Ried! With the large photo, white background, and epic machine stitching, this trifecta of techniques is the ultimate "Steffi" layout!
Hello everyone, Steffi here back again with a new post! If you ask me about my favorite technique it is definitely sewing. I love all my colorful sewing threads and the look of seams in my mini books and on layouts. Sometimes it gets a little bit crazy and my sewing machine runs all over the layout. Just like this! I will show you how this layout was created in a photo tutorial.

As the sewing is in the foreground, I took a large photo and added the colorful rays. For this I have chosen different threads matching colors from the different Paige Evans collections.
Next, I marked the center point on the layout so I know from where I am sewing with the sewing machine the rays.
So that the colors blend into each other, I've sewn a few color beams into the previous color in between. Thus the transition is fluid.
I have partly sewn the decorations on the layout. First the beams were sewn and finally the individual parts. Then the layout is finished!
I hope you liked my favorite technique. And what is your favorite? Until next time!
