Twine-d Art

If you do not want/ do not know how to make a book, it's not the end :) Buy any type of notebook and have a go customizing it! Here's something new that was created recently and I have been waiting to share this with you. I had an opportunity to create a book for a young lady and I had fun putting this together. As I spend some time thinking about what I could do and what she would like, I remembered a pile of rope twine that was sitting in my craft station. Most of the time while searching for ideas, I love to start by looking at what I already have and start building from that. This round, I thought would be cool to try and make something from these beautiful rope twines and see where it led me too, and this was the result :) As she was going to start college, get her driving license and have all these beginnings, it was going to be a journey for her and this was a message to remind her that at the core of everything that she does and in the busyness, there's a time to be still; and I used a home to represent a place of rest. What's M? It was one of her initials :) Here's a video of the making :)

You can't quite tell the house in the middle until someone tells you, making it a very subtle hint which works out great too. Once the 'M' was made, I took some col0red cardstock and and wrapped a beautiful notebook that I found in BIG Aeon :) Then, using some UHU glue, the 'M' was attached onto the cover.
