Hey everyone! I am SUPER DUPER excited to be able to represent The Twinery design team in this blog hop with Little Yellow Bicycle. If you are some of my regular readers, you know I love Little Yellow Bicycle, so when I was asked about doing this I almost screamed out loud!
So, you probably came here from The Twinery blog, if not you need to head over there! Both companies have prize packs for commenters!!! I will put the details below!
We all got to work with the "Hello Fall" collection from LYB and this has to be one of my favorite collections from them. I love the colors, embellishments, and well basically all of it!!!
So let's get to the projects! I did three projects, a layout, a card and a wall hanging! I can't decide which is my favorite, but you know I love my altered wall/banner projects, so it's probably that one!
(NOTE-I am going to list out supplies at the bottom of my post for each project instead of underneath them like I normally do)
This was up over on The Twinery blog as my feature. I used the Cappuccino twine to make a trail for the leaves. To do this, I just used a little liquid adhesive and glue where my loops were and then just covered the area with a leaf.
I also sanded the corrugated cardboard squirrel to give him a little interest and a little highlight!
Next up is my card (yes, I am saving the hanging for last!) This card was quick, I made it in a little under 15 minutes by using one of the quotes and that wonderful felt flower that LYB has in embellishments for the collection.
The quote was actually a 12 inch strip that I just cut into sections and the same with the scalloped border. I used the same Cappuccino twine on the card as I did on my layout. And I love those little leaf stick pins! I kept trying to put them everywhere, I didn't care if they were going to work or not!
And finally my wall hanging! I had thought about making a mini album, but at the time I was creating, didn't have quite enough pictures that I wanted to use, so decided on this instead! I was glad that the mini didn't work out after I got this completed. I already had one person try and "steal" it! LOL
I took one of the LYB banners and detached all the little elements and then used the Cappuccino twine as the hanger! Those accordion flowers are in an embellishment pack that has all kinds of fun things to make flowers out of...die cuts, strips, etc. I just used my Martha Stewart scoring board to make my score marks, so that I could fold easier! Also, that orange strip is a crepe border strip that is in an embellishment pack also and I just ruffle folded it and the glued it down.
(I totally made up the "ruffle folded" term....maybe I will start a trend!)
For the center panel, I played a little off my layout with the trail for the leaves. I used the Mandarin twine for the trail. I really wanted to use that tree and the corrugated cardboard leaves and that was how I decided it would work. I also used a big swirl chipboard piece that LYB has in the chipboard elements as a mask and misted the yellow paper with some orange. You can see it if you enlarge the picture.
I also sanded the leaves like I did the squirrel, but then misted them also, to give them some color with the same orange mist and then some blue mist that matched the papers.
And here is my last panel. To make the owl strip I cut it from the 12 x 12 sheet that had the border strips on it, then I border punched below the owls. And then backed the open border strip with some of the paper that I had cut from the top of the owl strip.
