String Art Heart Layout by Lorilei Murphy


Sunday, May 20, 2018

Cut files can be used in more ways than one! Here Lorilei Murphy got used a cut file as a stitching template - read on to see how!
I found the super cool String Art Heart cut file and cut it from 12x12 white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo 3 then used it as a template to punch holes in a heavier weight cardstock. After I had the holes made I used four different colors of embroidery floss to make the string art design. I quickly gave up trying to follow all the lines in the cut file and just made my own crissing and crossing the heart. It was super helpful to use the cut file to place the holes though!
It took me about an hour to string the whole heart. Once I was done I added some paint splatters to the two areas I knew I would embellish. While the paint was drying I put together my photo cluster. I ended up adding foam to a few of the layers for lots of dimension. Before I adhered my photo cluster I added a few Pick-Me-Up Rub-Ons to peek out beneath it.

I added a cute little cluster at the top left of the heart for balance and interest using Ephemera Die CutsChipboard Stickers, and sequins from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack.
