Hexagons and Twine

This month the new challenge at Scrap It With Attitude is Hexagons and Twine. I love being part of the Scrap It With Attitude Design Team as it has really made me push my boundaries.

Not every design comes naturally and not every design works out how I want it to and the project below is a perfect example of that. In my head I knew what I wanted to do as a back ground and how to create it but after that I had no idea what I was going to do. I am not sure how other people create but I never have a clear picture in my head of what it is going to look like.

So the background is hexagons and somewhere in there I needed to incorporate twine. My first thought was to make twine flowers, I have seen them and thought that they would fit perfectly into my design, and I still think they would. It just didn't happen, not enough time on my behalf to perfect them and make as many as I needed. So out came my trusty Silhouette Cameo and I searched my libray for a flower design. I still needed to include twine.

How did I go to include twine in my design? I love this piece. It is not my usually style but that could why I love it so much.

The challenge at Scrap It With Attitude is sponsored by Love Crafts. It is just a brand new business starting up online, so why not head on over and show them some support.
