It's Katrina from Paper, Scissor and Glue back with another idea
on how to use twine on your layouts!
Now, I am a layer it, embellish it kind of girl. I am of the house "more is better", BUT what I did with this layout can be done to any layout, even if you are a clean and simple scrapbooker. (side note...I LOVE clean and simple layouts, I just can't seem to do them...ask anyone that crops with me!) Everyone has little embellishments that you add to your layouts, whether it is chipboard, lettering, buttons, or a simple tag. You can use twine on ALL of those! And The Twinery baker's twine is wonderful to do this with! The color ranges make it EASY to add a bit of twine here or there.
At first glance, there is a lot going on, but once you look at the layout you start to
pick up on little details....like the twine!! I used just the Caribbean color on my layout,
because it flowed with all the other colors!
I used the twine to accent my chipboard border and the heart/star combo in the middle.
I love to make double strand bows out of my twine...I am addicted to making them!
I then noticed that the sign on the doghouse would be perfect for a bit of twine. So, I took a short length, tied knots in each end and used a brad to "hang" the sign from.
I did use a glue pen to adhere the twine to my layout so that it would lie flat.
And just in case you were wondering, this is Higgins!
He is a very vocal Cardigan Welsh Corgi...one of three in the house!
Thanks for visiting today!!
