Hello everyone! I’m Eva Pizarro and today I bring you a layout inspired by string art. I love this technique and it is so on trend right now that I decided to incorporated into my layouts but with a twist: instead of strings I used tiny strips of paper.
I am not going to lie, it takes some time to complete your project, but I promise you the result is worth it. The depth of the strips of paper is gorgeous and I think it would be very fun to do small images and hang them as decorations on your home. Maybe some animals in your kid’s room? that would be lovely!
To make the string art piece you need to draw a shape and mark small points where you are going to glue your strips. Don’t worry if you don’t have drawing skills, just try two or three times like I did until you are happy with the results.
Cut very fine strips of paper, erase the lines of your design and glue your strips to your paper. Begin in one dot and move another one, then glue another strip from that same do to another one and so on.
when you are finished your shape would look like this. I love that some of the strips bend a little giving a lot of dimension to the heart.
Create a hidden pocket by glueing a piece of paper to the back of your picture. Inside I put a journaling card and glue a donut sticker cut in half to make a tab.
Glue your photo and your white paper to your base.
Embellish with some stickers from the same collection and add your title. This year my husband and I celebrate our 10th anniversary so this layout is dedicated to that wonderful event!
Love this glittery alpha, it has chunky transparent glitter on top and shines beautifully.
I wrote my journaling in the card and put it on my secret pocket.
Did you like this technique? I hope you did and that you try it at home! if you do please share your creations with us!
