First I took an embroidery pattern and ironed it onto a piece of paper then stitched the design. I cut it out, carefully getting as close to the edge as possible.
Cut out various sized rectangles and layer under your photo.
The journaling die cut is made using a template from "The Crafter's Workshop." First trace the bracket onto a solid color. Then make the middle circle using patterned paper. Following the template, mark off even spaced dots, then stitch on these spots. Use a paper piercer first to assist in the stitching.
The edges are distressed with paint dabbers.
