getting stitchy...

Hi there! If you are looking for the Jenni Bowlin giveaway, see the post below or just click HERE!

This week, Glue Arts is working with some beautiful twine from The Twinery! Just take a gander at all the gorgeous colors they have! Anyone that knows me, knows I am a HUGE fan of twine!! I decided to stitch with mine. I adore stitching and thought it would be fun to use it in a unique way. Of course you could stitch on a layout, bag, clothing, etc as well!

I created the misted background on one of my Jenni Bowlin kit layouts and had a piece leftover, so I stitched right over the misted background with an embroidery needle and Caribbean twine by The Twinery.

If you'd like to see a step-by-step tutorial on how I stitched the snowflake, please visit the Glue Arts blog today! There is a fantastic giveaway going on over there too, and you can win yourself some Glue Arts adhesive, along with this gorgeous twine!
