So Far Behind

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.

May-September cards for Stick it Down Blog.

Easter Canvas

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.

Love of horses

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.
