Tilda & Co - Stringaling!



The Challenge this week on Tilda & Co is
Stringaling! Donna wants to see string on your Magnolia projects this week.
I started with this noticeboard which I have been using for a few months but it was very dull. I have been wanting to spruce it up for a while and I thought this challenge was perfect for it. I stamped the bottom with Stazon. Added a hanging string to hand on bits and pieces and even cards when I am waiting for them to dry.
I then coiled some string to make it into the snail's shell. Added some braid, ribbon and flowers and now it is so much prettier!

close up of the snail! Tilda is repositional and therefore also easy to change, I will change her to suit the seasons!

All items were just things from my stash, oh and a ball of string of course! The stamps I used for the board were Magnolia 'tilda with teddy' and some studio G stamps. Blooms are bazzill.

The rest of the DT team have come up with some fantastic ideas, I love all their projects, you really must pop over and take a look at them all!
