I love my chickens. They are so much fun to watch.
When I learned of a twine contest at the online store A Cherry On Top, I knew my new barnyard friends would be a perfect match.
This page features my most unique chicken. She reminds me of an owl. My husband says she looks like a chicken hawk. But we bonded the first evening we brought her home and I immediately began calling her “Mama’s Baby.” The name stuck since chickens seem to be rather difficult to name.
Here’s the page I created showing Mama’s Baby at just a few days old:

The paper is from Creative Imaginations & October Afternoon; cardstock: American Crafts; Twine: May Arts; metal embellishments, charm & black #2: Tim Holtz; cork #2: CTMH; other: Distress Ink, vintage images
In the bottom corner, I created a tag and then wrapped it in twine. Then I used one of the vintage images to make a charm, which I pinned with a key to the tag.
And, along the left side, I used twine as a bit of an accent on both the numbers and the top of the page.
I also inked the area around the letters after I attached them to the page. I thought it made them stand out and provided a bit more definition.
