Embroidery Hoop: Circle Easel

     The challenge at Scrappn' Savvy this month is to use a spool. Karrie, the owner also handed me a package of Tim Holtz "Textured Surfaces" and asked "What can you make out of this?" The package contains burlap, cork, and corrugated cardboard. 
     I decided on my colors based on the Stamp TV Fun Friday color challenge - white, kraft, bermuda lagoon, ocean mist. 
     I started with Eileen Hull's Embroidery Hoop die and the burlap. I painted the hoop, spool (cut in half), and chipboard pieces using white and Martha Stewarts "Bermuda Sky". 
     I die-cut the scallops using Spellbinders "Petite Scalloped Circles - Large". The bird is from Gina K's "Birthday Blessings" which includes a handy die. The flowers and sentiments are from Theresa Momber's "Birds & Blossoms I & II. 6-strand embroidery thread was used for the cross-stitch, around the spool, and through the button. 
     The envelope is stamped with paint using "Tiny Textures" an incentive stamp set from Gina K this month.
