The Patient Workings of an Artist in Australia: Melinda Spinks

The very patient Melinda Spinks created this beautiful "Love" layout form the new Apple Cider Collection. I say patent because she cuts the little leaves and apples from the pattern papers, she stitches the little blue bird's trail, quills the cloud and then went hunting for twigs to create her darling boarder. For more close-up photos of this beautiful layout, visit Melinda's blog post. Isn't Melinda great!!

Cute Melinda sent me this sketch to share for those of you that might want to create a layout based on Melinda's original layout. I love collecting sketches!

We were also very excited when we learned the Kristina at 2Peas featured the Apple Cider Collection in her weekly product picks. In fact, she even mentioned Melinda's layout above.  If you want to see the product in action...well sort of in real life, then you'll love this video.

This is awesome!! I am the same way with details on my layouts! Once, I even hand cut 100 pine needles for a Christmas tree layout! The details are a piece of you and add that special touch to a layout that will last generations!
