Emily on board today with a really basic technique. I love adding twine to my pages and thought I'd give you a quick lesson on how to use it for swirls and titles. All you need is some twine or other thin ribbon, some liquid adhesive, and if you're not sure of your freehanding abilities, a pencil to give you some direction.
With your pencil, lightly draw some swirls, loops, and curves along your page. I like to start in one corner and work down to the other. I try to vary the direction of my loops, a few to the right, one to the left, then back to the right. I like to vary the size of them as well.
I always work on one small section at a time, otherwise your glue will dry before you get to the end of your swirl.
Move onto the next section, repeating these steps until you have your swirls, loops, and curls complete.
You can follow the same technique to create a title like I did on my layout. I've noticed it works best when you make your words a larger size.
Before long, you'll be doing this technique without the aid of a pencil marking, it's a fun way to add some whimsy to your layouts and cards.
