String Art

String Art

How about another sample page from LOAD?

This was built using pieces from one of the Counterfeit Kits I made for the April challenge. The star was completely inspired by the string art in the sample pages of the original kit at A Beautiful Mess.

To keep the string from creating ridges behind the photo mat, the mat is mounted on foam tape. Other than that, the string art was very easy to do. You could do all sorts of geometric shapes this way. Anything with corners would work. Curves would be much harder to accomplish. The page would end up looking more like this:

Which is cool, but it might be hard to fit a photo and journaling in around it.

What kind of string art do you think you could add to a page? Does the idea of string art even remotely appeal to you?

  1. Very cool technique on the page. I have a friend who does cards with many varied designs similar to your other example. Would love to try it!

    • Was it paper or string Libby? I’ve seen some very detailed folding, I think it’s called iris folding, that looks a lot like string art.

What do you think?
