I am so sorry I have been so horrible in keeping up with my blog. In case you didn't know, I helped my mom sell her home and move in with us. It has been a big adjustment for all of us but we are starting to get into a routine.
Here are some of my projects that have recently been completed.

Today I am sharing a canvas I made for Easter. This is so fun and easy, what a great time you could have with your kids or grandkids making these.
I started with a blank canvas and painted it. I used white with a drop of brown paint and just painted on the canvas.
Once it was dry I got my twine. I used two different colors, I used wheat twine as well as Solid Brown twine . I started winding it from top to bottom and stopped when I thought I had enough, for me that was 20 times.
Next I went across the twine I just wound and again I went around 20 times.
Next to tie it all together I just wound the twine around the center.
I added a metal flower to the center and cut out the verse from vinyl using my Silhouette.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will give this a try. Remember to use your imagination and I can't wait to see what you create.

Colleen from Scrappin Granny here sharing a scrapbook page with you. I had so much fun creating this page using products from the Whisker Graphics store.
I started this page by picking out some Gray Devine Twine. I cut 3 equal lengths of twine and then starting braiding it.
Once I had it braided I put it in a mixture of white glue and water and made sure the twine was thouroughly coated.
Next I cut a single piece of twine and put that in the water and glue mixture.
While this mixture was soaking up the glue and water I arranged the braided twine into the shape I wanted. I put this on a silcone mat so it would stick.
While this was still wet I took the single strand of twine and wrapped it around the braided twine. I wanted it to look like the barbs on bard wire.
Don't worry about the lengths as you can cut them after everything is dry. I left mine overnight to dry. While this was drying I two tags and inked and sprayed them and left them to dry overnight as well. I tell you that the tags are just so great to work with, love how easy they take the ink and spray.
Once both items were dry I started assembling the rest of the items on the page. I love how the tags gave a rustic feel and the bard wire turned out just like I wanted it to.
Please check out the rest of the awesome products in the store.
So until the next time have fun creating.
