Texture and dimension are integral parts of scrapbook page design. Creating a simple string art background is a quick and easy way to give your page both.
Quick Tips for creating a Simple String art Background:
- Choose your supplies first. The color of your supplies will guide your selection when it comes to choosing the color of your string.
- Choosing a piece of patterned paper with a grid or polka dots can save you time. You won't have to use a ruler to measure or align the dots. You can use plain cardstock. If you do, be sure to mark your dots lightly with a pencil. Light pencil marks are easier to erase than dark ones.
- If you plan to tuck stickers among the string( like I did), have some scrap cardstock at the ready. Back the stickers with the cardstock and cut it out. You don't want that die cut to stick flat to the string, you want it to pop up off the page slightly. The cardstock will give the sticker some heft and enable it to stick up from the page with support.Use a craft knife to trim off excess cardstock or to remove cardstock from inner sections of the sticker( as with the space inside the kettle shown above).
