All You Need is Love

Hi Friends! 
Another TBT stencil hop!
I used Jane LaFazio's Vines Stencil on this stitched pillow.

I used a variety of threads.
I really like the way variegated thread keeps your eye moving across the design.

I used three stitches interchangeably...
The stem stitch, back stitch and chain stitch...
I think it adds interest and movement.

The LOVE is from both Jumbo Vintage Typewriter Alphabet Stencils A-P and Q-Z.

My method is easy.
I traced the stencils onto fabric and painted in the spaces with
a combination of Fabrico Markers and All-Purpose Ink by Tsukineko.
Then I stitched around the design with specialty threads.

The word LOVE without the outline stitching....
The word LOVE with the outline stitching....
It's a subtle difference...
Can you see it?
I feel that it makes a difference so I do it.
I suppose you wouldn't have to!

All you need is love!

I love how it turned out!

Another great StencilGirl project done! 
Thanks for visiting.  See you next time!
