Dream, Imagine, Create!

Happy April 1st Everyone!!! Hope you have all had a really nice weekend. We had a busy but fun one for sure. Looking forward to next weekend, Easter Weekend, FOUR DAY WEEKEND YAHOOO J

My post today I have taken on two challenges in one. First off the Friday Mashup Fan Challenge Winner and for the sketch I went to another favourite site the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. When the Occasions Mini came out and I noticed all 5 of the 2011-2013 In Colours in the bakers twine I just had to have them all. I love adding bakers twine to my projects. It is a really creative, inexpensive embellishment!

This is the first project I have been able to use so many different colours and I just had a blast. Now mind you I would not want to have made 50 of this card as the little kite was quite labour intensive but when I saw the final product it was TOTALLY worth it. When I asked my husband what he thought he said, “I think you may be the only one crazy enough to sit here that long winding up twine” J Thanks sweetie!

My Challenge(s):

  1. Make a project using "Colorful Twines".
  2. Or Make a "Kite themed" project.
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Kite themed project using some colorful Twine".

My Card:

Tiny Tips:
When taking on a project like this best not to cut corners and just take your time. At first I thought I would use just regular snail adhesive on each individual kite piece but after getting started I realized I needed something stronger to really hold it in place. So I broke out my sticky strip, and though I have to admit I really don’t enjoy using that product it sure did the trick for this creative kite!

Thanks for stoppin’ by!
