Default TLC360 ~ Twine it Up!! ~ (1/16/12)

Hello everyone!! I hope you had a great weekend!! Are you ready for a fun and easy Technique Lover's Challenge??

I have noticed on lots of blogs and in the card magazines a lot of different ways to use twine. So, my challenge is to Twine it up!! Wrap twine around something for a solid look, use it to outline something, or create a flower, grass, or a sun with it....just be creative and have fun!! You can use any kind of twine, thread, or cording...use what you have!!

In order to cover a solid image or shape, cover it with double sided tape - both front and back - first. Your twine won't shift and you can easily redo something if you need to.

My DD Holly made a sample card for the challenge:

Twine Frame Howdy

Here is my sample:

Owl Always Love You

Remember when uploading to use keyword TLC360 (no spaces)

You can view the entire TLC360 gallery here!!

Have fun!!

Fun challenge, Joan. You gave us a lot of latitude on which "thread" to use which should make for a very interesting and creative gallery. Thanks!

Joan, what a fun challenge. I've been putting pieces parts together left over from projects or time at a friend's house with their toys.
Here's my card for this challenge. I have today off so I finally get to play!

Very fun idea, Joan. It should be a very creative gallery!

I used the blue striped twine around the edge of my image (and also as a cute little bow).

Default TLC360 Summer Horse

I was inspired by the sample piece- Twine Frame Howdy- and came up with Summer Horse- embroidery floss wound over a baking tube metal end cap. Have a wonderful day!

Thanks, Joan, for this inspirational challenge! There are so many creative approaches to twine here and in blogland.

I didn't have twine, but some colorful floss, and decided to give it a whirl:
