Getting creative with twine

You may have noticed that this year i've had a slight obsession with twine and it's made it's way on to most of my pages. Last week's challenge over at the SC blog was to use twine on a page and tried come up with a few new ways to use it.

My standard favourite thing to do is just to add twine as a border and use my tiny attacher to adhere it to my page. With this layout i did just that but tied on a few extra bits of twine to change things up a bit.

For this page i made hoops of twine. It's really easy. Just wind your twine around a circular object. i used an egg cup, but you can use something smaller or larger depending what size you want your hoops to be. i wound mine around the egg cup about 5 or 6 times and then secured it by tying it with more twine. i used a liquid adhesive to attach to my page, but you could also sew them on.

They're messy and imperfect, but that's ok with me!

i really really love this kit! When i first saw the colour combination i knew it would go well with my New Zealand pictures so i'm trying to scrap with some of the 4x6 photos i already have printed. i am so used to scrapping with smaller pictures these days, i'm struggling a bit with the size, but i'm determined to use them!
