Doodlebug String Art Project

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing the layout I created for Doodlebug featuring their awesome Chunky Twine. I'm a huge fan of all the string art projects you see around the net nowadays and I have been wanting to give it a try too for quite some time now.

Let me show you what I did using Limeade chunky twine and the fun Anchors Aweigh collection

I started by printing (not cutting) a fun string art heart cut file from The Cut Shoppe and placed this on top of my white cardstock. Using a paper piercer I punched lots of little holes through the printed heart and into my white background cardstock. Next I removed the sheet with the printed heart and placed it visible on my desk and started hand sewing the heart with the printed heart as my example. Super easy! 

I just love the effect of the chunky twine on my layout. And as I'm a huge fan of all of Doodlebug's shaped sprinkles I decided to use those to fill in the white spaces of the heart. Next I built the rest of the page around this heart. The photo came first, then the strips of paper and washi tape at the top and bottom of the layout and last but least the rest of the embellishments, like the little Wally whale doodle-pop and the sequins

I used my Silhouette Cameo to create a title for my layout. Initially I cut a white title, but decided later-on I wanted a dark blue one and hand colored it. 

I also added a bit of machine stitching and a few drops of paint as I still find those perfect finishing touches. The stickers are from the Anchors Aweigh This & That sticker sheet:

Thank you so much for taking a peek at my Chunky Twine project today! Have a great day!
