LOVE HER by Paige Evans

Description: I was inspired by the nail & string art I've seen popping up on Pinterest lately and thought I'd give it a go using baker's twine and brads with the new Shimelle line!

Journaling says: Ain't no :)

How to: Trace a heart onto white cardstock with a pencil then mark the center top and center bottom points. Mark every 1.5" or down both sides. Pierce a brad through each pencil dot. Wrap baker's twine around the brads - I didn't have a rhyme or reason for the method to my madness, I kinda wish I did though because it's a bit of a hot mess. Oh well. Wrap the top layer color of twine around the heart to define the edge. Punch a rainbow of patterned papers into 1" circles then trim them in half. Adhere the semi circles around the heart again to define the edge. Notice I kept my brads and papers in a rainbow order for a fun look. Add a pair of photos to the right and stitch a Thickers title below. Add matching colored embellishments (such as die cuts, rub ons, wood veneer, layered chipboard, stickers, and more) around the rainbow heart then drop spray mist around the layout to finish.

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, brads, die cuts, stickers, wood veneer, cork, layered chipboard, rub ons, circle punch, baker's twine, Thickers, adhesive: American Crafts; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark
