Headstrong - Scrap365 / Kreinik


Hi there and good evening! Today I have the pleasure of sharing you this layout I created for a blog post in Scrap365's blog. When I got some of my published works back the other day, inside the parcel with the layouts were a set of threads by Kreinik. They were really inspirational! I made total three layouts with them for the post and have been playing with them ever since. Here's the first of the three.  


For this first layout I used Kreinik metallic threads. They are really wonderful, glimmering threads that have some bulk in them. First of all I coated two chipboard circles with the metallic threads. It took me a while to wrap the thread around the shape, but I think the end result is worth the trouble! The shiny thread creates a lovely embellishment and vocal point and as the thread is a bit thicker than your normal sewing thread it doesn't take ages to cover the chippie.

I also used the same threads to make a friendship bracelet style ribbon with a chevron design. You can find instructions to do one over at the internet. And lastly I added a piece of thread just on top of the circular frames and attached it with a stapler.

The story of the layout is the personality of my younger daughter. She's headstrong in many ways - she's really determined but also brave and daring in a way. 

Thank you for stopping by today!
