It's time for another challenge on the Frosted Designs blog and this one might push you out of your comfort zone- but don;t let that stop you!
The theme is String Art and the design team has created INCREDIBLE projects to share with you! You HAVE to see them. You have to!
To create this, I simply used Microsoft Word and printed out 'beautiful' in a font and size that would allow me to fill the space.
Next, I cut around the word, then lightly taped to the space I wanted to work in.
Using a paper piercer I poked around the printed word (I felt that this step was the longest and most tedious).
Once I had the word poked/formed to my satisfaction, I began by stitching the outline of each letter until they were all complete. A tip- I did not remove the paper word template that I had used as an outline. There were so many holes and I was afraid I would make a mistake, so I basically peeled back the template paper letter by letter as I completed them.
I then went back and randomly added the "string art" elements to each individual letter. This was the easiest part of the process, and the most fun. It's really cool to see the end result.
I do hope you will give this challenge a try!
