Have you noticed that I always use a "found" object on my projects?



Thanks paper bag

Have you noticed that I always use a "found" object on my projects? *winks* I love my "keep-it-for-a-rainy-day" stash! :) This time I used this brown paper bag [I tried my best to cover up the really beaten-up parts *LOL*].





Added a little texture with crackle paint in rock candy. :)


And of late, I really like creating fun shapes with twine....

Supplies: Crate Paper patterned papers, TH embossing folder, Ranger crackle paint, SRM sticker, twine, trim.

P/s: Have you checked out the awesome masking tape tutorial by my guest Miae Rowe? I would really love for you to play along! :)

I have a stash of all kinds of found things, too! Yes, I am a collector, but not very good at using them. I'll try harder! I love seeing how you use yours ;). This is a beautiful creation and I just LOVE the twine shape. WOW!

How super sweet is this? I try to hang on to all sorts of things...but I have a wrecking crew that tends to snap up anything that doesn't yet have patterned paper on it ;) I have to get a better hiding spot! Love the texture the embossing & crackle paint add :)
