Twig Spring Town

Don't you just love it when you figure out something fun to alter?  I bought these blocks from Adornit's wood decor selection and thought it would be a great idea to cover them with Little Yellow Bicycle's Twig collection.  Mostly because the colors are fantastic and the little chipboard pieces below made each block look like part of a little town.  I especially love the tree and the little Spring people...they really dressed up my blocks.
LYB - TW-279 - Chipboard Shapes with glitter accents (24 pieces)
This is the tallest of the blocks and I painted all of them brown with acrylic paint.   Then, I cut the letter 'S' out of the Twig Pleased Plaid paper with my Cricut Storybook Cartridge at 4.75 inches and used the shadow feature for the white cardstock.  Then I added some of the Twig Epoxy stickers to decorate the chipboard tree.
This is where you can see the darling little chipboard Twig person.  I added some bling to his eyes then tucked him behind the letter 'P' which I cut out of the Petaled paper at 4.25 inches with my Cricut, then used the shadow feature on the white cardstock.  I think that twine is the perfect fiber to add to this collection, so I tied up each of my block clusters with it.  It also made it easy to tuck in little items like this Twig leaf.
Isn't this Chipboard house fantastic???  I love how it looks behind the letter 'R' which I cut out of the Leaf a Note paper with my Cricut at 3.75 inches, then used the shadow feature on the brown cardstock.  The wood ringed chipboard button was the perfect element to tie everything together with the twine.
Love how this set of blocks from Adornit comes with the large wooden flower to break up the design.  I thought this one would be a great fit for the middle of the word and for the letter 'I' which I cut out of the Petaled paper with my Cricut at 4.75 inches then used the shadow feature on the white cardstock.
I cut the letter 'N' with my Cricut at 3.75 inches and used the shadow feature on the brown cardstock.  I also used the fabulous Fabric Favorites for the large flower.  Simple and elegant tied together with twine.
For the letter 'G' I used the largest sized block again and cut it at 4.75 inches and then used the shadow feature on the white cardstock.  Here you can see another of the little Twig people and again I used some bling for the eyes.  I also used one of the chipboard buttons as a clasp for the twine.

Please grab yourself some Little Yellow Bicycle Twig before it is all gone.  I know this collection is selling like hot cakes.  Also be sure to stop by the Adornit Store for more wood decor ideas to alter.  they have an extensive selection.

Thank you so much for stopping by -
