It's all about the Twine and the Wind

I am sharing a couple of projects using twine from Whisker Graphics.  I had so much fun winding and playing with the twine.


First I got out some different sizes of acrylic blocks used in stamping and some Divine Twine.  I next wrapped the Divine Twine around the blocks.




Then I took a cream colored piece of cardstock.  I inked the Divine Twine using my Tim Holtz inks.


After getting the Divine Twine inked I started putting the block on the cardstock.  The more you use the block the darker your ink will appear on the cardstock. Just keep adding as much or as little as you want to the cardstock.




Once I had what I wanted on the cardstock, I inked around the edges. Now you get to add your photos and embellishments. I used the Divine Twine that I had wrapped around the blocks and added that to the layout as well.




The 2nd project is using kind of the same technique but this time making a card.


I used one of the blocks that I used to ink the cardstock but this time I put modeling paste on the Divine Twine and stamped in on a black piece of cardstock.


This is what is looked like when it dried.


Very fun technique to try.  Of course, keep your Divine Twine and use it again on another project.


Thanking you for stopping by and I hope you give one or both the techniques a try.
