A bit late my post today, but that's because I just came back from a FABULOUS weekend over at Heraklion, Crete, where we had the first Crop in Crete... We had a really, really great time, the incredible hospitality of the Cretans has been proved to be... incredible!, the food is just amazing (I don't dare get on the scales for now), and the team has organised such a great, great crop! Thank you girls! (I will have a separate post for the crop with what I made there - yes, I actually did make something!)
Sooooo... apologies for this introduction, but I am very excited indeed... Back to today's new challenge we have over at The Studio Challenges and it is one of my favourite ones: Twine!
Twine is one of my favourite materials but I don't actually use it in layouts as much as I would have liked. By far my favourite is baker's twine. And since I have plenty of colours and didn't know which one to chose... I went for a rainbow layout to use as many colours as I could:
I cut circles out of cardstock, applied glue and starting from the centre I added twine round and round. I then added small embellishments in the various colours, using distress paint on some of the embellishments to get the colour that I wanted. A number of close-up photos:
So why don't you come over at The Studio Challenges to see how the design team has used twine on their layouts - really, the team has rocked this challenges and you can see some really creative use of twine!
I hope you like it!
