If you've been waiting for the new Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Designs, then today is the day!! Our challenge this week is for you to use Ribbon/Twine on your layouts or projects!! There are so many fun options for this challenge! Now I have to admit, that I don't use a lot of ribbon on my pages (very rarely). I find it to be a little bulky sometimes, but on the other hand, I am a baker's twine fanatic!! :) I love to use twine and you can usually find it on about 90% of my layouts. Here is what I created for this week's challenge:
I really had a lot of fun creating this page! I started out with a $1 kit from Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness line, that I picked up at my LSS. These papers were perfect for an outdoors-y layout. I used my Expression to cut a large butterfly from the bottom right corner of my page and I covered the positive image of the butterfly with strips that I cut a scallop border on, using some paper Edgers. I thought it would be fun to tie the yellow twine across the page and meet it in the center of the bottom butterfly. I also used a little more twine for the center of the second butterfly. My Singer hand-held sewer has been on semi-good behavior lately, so I used it to sew a little border around the scalloped frame on my page and then I finished it off by adding some specks of brown acrylic paint.
I hope you will plan on coming over and playing along with us this week for the chance to win a great prize from our sponsor this week, Memorable Seasons!!
