handmade stitched card
I am learning the new technique of String art. You can work on different materials like fabric, wood or paper.. sure some else ..
It can get tricky if you use a soft paper.. I recommend some rather thicker type of paper so you get the strings straight and tight ;)
All is matter of practice. There are many beautiful designs on String Art and I hope (wish) to learn much more with this technique..
