Our Whisker Graphics Design Team project today is from Janae P.

Hi all, I just got my first String Creations Stitch blank by Plaid Crafts and was excited to use my Whisker Graphics Divine Twine on a project I’ve been wanting to put together.

janae_usstringart_01_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For my supplies I gathered:

 

My first step was deciding which colors and how I wanted to design my United States. I love the red, white and blue patriotic colors and decided to go for a subtle mix of those colors with a little tan thrown in to accent the wood.

janae_usstringart_06_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

janae_usstringart_07_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I put my masking tape on for a clean edge and applied the paint. I was worried at first that it would clog the little holes, but found they stayed clear through all the coats. Once I was done with blue I let it dry, peeled off my masking tape and then applied another layer covering the blue side. I added my tan paints and let it dry, then removing the masking tape.

 

 

janae_usstringart_08_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used the red twine to highlight my favorite places to travel and the white twine to highlight places I hope to go. I’m excited that every time I pass this piece in my house it will remind me of so many good memories and I’ll remember the future adventures I have to make.

 

 

janae_usstringart_09_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I started a knot with the red twine on the back of the wood in my “home” location and then pulled the string through to the front. I then strung it over to my various favorite vacations, knotting it at each stop. I made sure my twine ended up back at home,

 

 

janae_usstringart_10_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…then adhered a paper heart over it with a 3-D adhesives.

janae_usstringart_15_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then tied a few strings in single knots and put them through the holes of my one-day vacations.

 

 

janae_usstringart_16_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had a cute clipboard lying around that I though would be so fun to display it on, so I glued it down to some white cardstock and threw on some thickers saying “explore” with an extra little paper heart!

I love how this piece turned out and am excited to add different colors of twine for different spots I want to highlight in the future.

An Apple A Day….

It’s September and that means it’s time to head back to school.

Everyone is a little nervous that first day – why not break the ice by giving the teachers some little goodies.

Steph A. with Live Laugh Scrap created this fun Teacher’s treat!

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman my first post for Whisker Graphics.  I am thrilled to be working with the fun products available in the online store!
With the first day of school comes anxiety from students as well as teachers.  Why not give them something to calm their fears and put a smile on their faces that first day. Fill these bags with all kinds of treats and give them to everyone who needs a little pick-me-up.

Supplies:
Bitty Bags- Glassine
Divine Twine Collection – Red Solid
Divine Twine Metallics – Rose Gold Vintage Metallic
Small Colored Tags – Red and White
Clay – Green and Brown clays
JoyClair Stamps – Butterfly Kisses
Clearsnap Ink – Red Cricut Expression

Using Bitty Bags, I added die cut apples as decorative elements.

steph_applebags_03_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To finish the apples, I tied Rose Gold Vintage Metallic twine around the stems. Then I added brown clay for the “pits” and green clay for the leaves.

 

 

steph_applebags_04_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
I folded the tops of the bags down and tied them with Rose Gold Vintage Metallic Twine.

 

 

 

steph_applebags_05_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to add a little sentiment for the recipient so I stamped “Enjoy your day!” on the tags. After inking the tags, I tied them to the bags with Red Solid Twine.

And there you have it – who wouldn’t love to receive these little packages.

Hi all, I’m Katie @ Life in a Snapshot!

I have my first project as part of the Whisker Graphics Design Team. I love Halloween do you? We are starting to celebrate it a bit more in the UK now but we still don’t have as many Halloween things as the USA so we make our own. I altered a paper bag to make a little Halloween gift bag but what is going to be lurking inside?

I used the Divine Twine Twists Halloween bakers twine to create this traditional trick or treat bag. I might fill it with toy bugs just because I have a wicked side.
