Dual Tones and Layer Stitching.

This is also another technique that I've used in my latest layout. I've hand stitched in zig-zag twice using two different tones of threads. I remembered some of my blog readers had asked me how do you hand stitch on a layout? Well, I do not have a sewing machine. Therefore the only way for me to stitch is hand stitching. To make hand stitching easy, first, layer under your layout a piece of crafting foams or white foams (something soft). Then use a sharp tool i.e needle, twizzer, to poke all the stitching holes first. This would lessen the hassle of having to poke through your thick card stock later and it will make your stitches look more machine liked and even.
