What's in a Name?

What's in a name?  What is the inspiration?  Hmmm........  Create a layout aboutYour Name is a challenge over at Scrapbook Layouts.  I decided this would be a perfect addition to my Wildwood Crush Book.  I love this book; I know I've said it before, but it's the perfect art journal/scrapbook for me!  The pages are thick and they already have some background interest.  They'll take gesso, paint, ink, glue, texture paste, etc.

About my name, and this is where enTWINEd comes in for the first time.  My name came from a story book character.  However, it's hard to believe I wasn't named for both of my grandmothers since they are Catherine and Kathryn.  My great, great grandmother was also name Catherine.  That name seems to be woven throughout my family!

Ok, so about this LO.  It was the perfect opportunity to use some scrap strips from old papers as well as some new pieces:  Free to Be Me, For Always, Hopscotch, Chalk It Up.  I also used Cranberry, Kraft, Flaxen and Black.  

The buttons, flourishes and flowers were cut from Art Philosophy.  My name, ruler, and piece at the top right are from Artbooking.  The silhouette is from Suburbia.
I enTWINEd several stamps for the background; the sets include:  Assorted Edges and A Happy Hello.

My embellishments:  Black Epoxy Bubbles, Mini Medley Black, and the new Flaxen Thick Twine which is literally enTWINEd into the gate at the top of the right hand page!  

Hey, what's all this enTWINEd stuff about?  Glad you asked!  It's the recent challenge over at Heart 2 Heart!  There are many ways you might interpret this challenge, so head over and check it out!
