Twinery/ Momenta Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Twinery and Momenta blog hop! 

The designers of The Twinery and Momenta have created some wonderful projects to inspire your creativity! There are also some wonderful prizes to be won. There are 14 stops along the way and you will be inspired every step of the way!
I was so excited to hear we were hopping with the Twinery! I adore their cotton twine and the variegated colour twists come in a multitude of inspiring colours. It wasn't hard to pair up some great Momenta papers and Twinery twine!
Here is a layout I made of my daughter this past summer. We were on vacation at the lake and she had just woken up. Her sun-kissed skin and crazy hair; her big smile and sleepy face were huge inspirations for this design.

I chose a white background and layered some of the Momenta Kaleidoscope pyramid pad (PA-2383) in green and floral patterns. I used the Twinery twine in honeydew and laid down a zig zag stitch.
I then used a chipboard circle and covered it in cantaloupe twine; wrapping it very closely.  I then used a circle template and laid out a sunburst pattern and stitched the rays to match.


I finally chose the vibrant puffy alpha in pink (ST-25574-VIB) and a cute little birdie from the cleared layered sticker sheet (ST-3838 EMG). I finished by tying his tail with a bow in Caribbean twine. I was very happy with the final result..and my daughter loved adding it to her book of summer memories!
