I came across these pictures on pinterest, and it inspired me to do this little afternoon craft. It turns out, it's easy, it's cheap, and the pattern possibilities are endless! Plus, I love how it turned out!
I was inspired by over sized cross stitch :
So, with my inspiration, this is what I decided to do!
For supplies, I used markers, computer paper, graph paper printed from here. For the graph paper, I used the eight lines per inch and heavy index lines on letter-sized paper. You also need a cross stitch pattern. You can use any you want. I used this one by Kell Smurthwaite and Kincavel Krosses.
I just followed the pattern and colors. I used the graph paper behind the computer sheet as a template and tried my best to stay within the lines of the squares. Here is a close up look.
You could frame your artwork, use it in scrap booking or card making, journaling, so many possibilities!
