January Challenge {DT Scrap For Help}

Hello Everyone!
Second day of the New Year and I have already
a new layout to share with you :-)
"Scrap For Help" challenge blog has a fun challenge
this month and it`s about using "String".
We had to create a layout using "string" and this is
what I came up with -----> using twine....
STRING!!!! (yarn/twine) What a great recycled material to use on a project, So many uses.

A fun one for sure!!!
You can use String, Yarn or Twine for this challenge.

You can use left over bits, or recycled pieces used to wrap Christmas presents....Just think outside the box and create a page using this material.

You can include it on your work as is, or think of a clever way to incorporate it some how-

You might want to stamp with it.

Emboss paper or card stock with it,

Impress it into wet media...... etc

You are only limited by your creative imagination!!!!
For the challenge please go -----> HERE

{IDS 0016} Window With Lattice

  • I used the twine to make the centres of the chippie flowers.
  • Each chippie flower was cut out separately from the chipboard border (see photo above).
  • I added a pearl in the centre of the flowers as a final touch.
  • The Sizzix Brick wall decorative strip was cut out twice and then cut in a few pieces.
  • All the flourish was fussy cut from the beautiful "Modern Romance" collection.

I hope you enjoyed my post today and I hope to see you
playing along with us at Scrap For Help challenge blog.
