"Each Moment Only Once" Layout by Helen Tilbury

Hi there ladies!  HELEN here with a weird & wonderful creation for you today!  I created this for my Design Team work at Berry71Bleu this month, where we are all 'Going Crazy'!!  
I used lots of gorgeous & timeless Purple Pumpkin twine available HERE.  Twine is an inexpensive way to make a modern style statement on your layouts!
I doubled it up (which is immediately more effectual)then twisted it around, securing here & there with TINY glue-dots.
I inked up the little wooden heart buttons - 
available HERE.  They're TOO cute!!
I used a really thick modeling paste for my stenciling,
which gave a really nice, raised effect!
I used lots & lots of twine around my cut-out photo,
for a really unusual effect (the idea was it was meant
to reflect the over-working of my son's brain!!!)
I hope you enjoyed my unusual layout & will give something similar a try yourself!  You can read more about my layout on my blog HERE
