The Studio Challenges - Twine

The Studio Challenges has an interesting challenge this month involving twine.

On with today's challenge! We challenge you to get creative with twine! There are so many different types of twine out there and lots of possibilities for using it so we would love to see what you can do with it!

I go through a love/hate relationship with twine.  Some months I will find myself using it on nearly every layout I produce while other months I don't use it at all.  I mostly use it in place of ribbon on a page or by wrapping it around a photo, embellishment or a featured piece of patterned paper much like the DT have with their sample pages.  I've been know to drape it randomly, tie it through tags and into large loopy bows.

This time I decided to use twine to create my background.  I think it is really effective and certainly makes a dull, flat piece of kraft cardstock much more interesting.

Shhhh  - this is my daughter caught sleeping - don't tell her I took this photo or there is going to be trouble !!
