Colourful Threads

You must be wondering why I put this picture to start this post....well this is what happened, it was a gloomy week to start with… gray sky and was raining every now and then. Just to put things in perspective, we have not seen sun from last couple of days...

So to kill the boredom, I made a cup of hot ginger tea and started my new project with lovely colourful threads. They were sitting in my embroidery kit from quite some time, so I thought its time to use them and let’s do some needle work…nah!!! my mind said instantly.... too much work...... well how about gluing the threads to the paper that doesn't sound like a lot of work. Well there is no harm in trying!!! Go on... do mind encouraged . So I picked up the yellow card stock paper in memory of bright sun and drew a picture of pretty roses with leaves and started my see what happened after that… simply scroll down!!!

I glue the thread to the paper little by little and my first red rose is ready...

So two flowers are done and one more to go....

Now its time to do the leaves....

TA-DA!!! picture is ready to be framed:-)

Isn't it look beautiful?

There is one more way to do it, simply stick the threads on a scotch tape.

A close up view...

So after making couple of circle shapes with threads, I glued it on a card stock and made this gift card holder.
