Altered Hoop Layout + Video by CI Shweta Tapsi Khode

Hello everyone and welcome to Prika blog.

Shweta here today to share an inspiration project for Prika monthly challenge, the theme this month being - Birds bees and butterflies . And this challenge is being sponsored by the brand - CrafTreat.

I have altered an embroidery hoop and turned it into a layout, using the CrafTreat butterfly stencil and their intricate frame chiplets.

I have not used too many fancy supplies in this project. Just some basic supplies from my stash. And yet, the end result is beautiful.

Here's the list of supplies used. You may also find the process video below.

  • CrafTreat- Butterfly Stencil, Frame Chiplets
  • Acrylic Colours-White, Black, Blue, Pink
  • Prika-White and Black Cardstock
  • Prima-Art Stones
  • Little Birdie-Soft Gel Medium,Silicon Glue
  • Distress Inks-Worn Lipstick,Vintage Photo
  • Archival Ink-Majestic Violet
  • Handmade flowers, tags, fussy cut elements and other ephemera from my stash.

I started by colouring the entire hoop black. Then I pasted white cardstock cut in a circle on the hoop to use as the base. Layered a piece of black cardstock cut in a semi-circle on the white one.

Used White,Blue,Pink acrylic paints and randomly applied colour on the black cardstock and also splattered some white colour. Then using distress and archival ink and some black paint, stencil a butterfly on white cardstock and fussy cut it.

Then I stencil random patterns on the cardstock base using the same stencil and bronze metallic acrylic paint.

I then assembled all the ephemera and embellishments and used a picture of a couple as my focal point. Added some art stones here and there. Lastly I added a satin ribbon to complete the project.

Here's the video tutorial:

Saw how easy it is to create something beautiful without using too many fancy supplies?
