Repeat Impressions - Pick of the Week

Hi, Donna here with my POW-Pick of the Week for Repeat Impression.  I've been  
wanting to try the hot new technique I've seen video after video on
all over you tube, so here is a tutorial on my first attempt of
string art.
First gather your minimal supplies that should be in your craft room
already, reinker, string, about 9-12", a container to ink your string
in, 2 pieces of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" cardstock, saying of your choice.  Rubber
gloves as I learned by experience:

Ink up your string leaving about 2-3" on each end uninked, do not be fooled into
thinking this will keep you uninked:

Lay your string in a circular design with one end at the top of your cardstock,
see positioning in the next picture:

Place the other piece of cardstock on top, (note
positioning of the string in  this photo)  press the top
 sheet of cardstock down and quickly pull the bottom
 string out:

You will get two mirror image designs looking similar or not to this, depending
on your curls:

Embellish as desired, some people add leaves to make the image look more

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will give it a try.

Yes on the gloves but what a fun technique to play with. Each time you do it it is different. Your tutorial was very good.
