From the Sweet Baby Girl paper I cut a slightly smaller circle and added HEAVY GESSO WHITE through my Finnabair Stencil- Iris Tapestry and sprinkled glitter on it before it dried. Then I stitched around the edge in corresponding thread finishing it off with my Tim Holtz Paper Distresser — The Mad Scrapper
I added this to the coral now attached to the hoop using foam to give it lift. Then I took out lots of things from my stash or that I had fussy cut from the papers from this collection or similar coloured ones from others.
This next photo shows I have chosen to add 2 more circles to the hoop from the Bundle of Joy paper (out of stock at the moment) I used both sides cutting out a few extra baby vests too. If you were making this for a boy the paper is available at the time of typing this.
I added some pink lace across the middle of the frame and to that the white pompom ribbon. Then I added the circles after lifting them too on foam. Over the centre of those I added the beautiful white lace and then I set to embellishing the rest of the hoop.
You can see I have added flowers from 49and Market in Ballet Slipper and Roses from Green Tara . I have also added a drinking straw and a couple of buttons, one of which is the tiny feet.
The Sometimes the Smallest is a sticker from Little Dreamer Girl Sticker Book , there are some lovely things in there which I mounted on to a tag I made from a scrap of the papers used.
Other items I have used are Finnabair Clear glass beads, Finnabair Melange Art Pebbles - Clear and Scor-Tape - 1/4" Double Sided Tape .
To finish off this project I added glitter to the flowers and some baby pink Nuvo Drops. The thread to the tag is at least 20 years old, I bought it when I first started crafting!!
