Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 23

It is Day 23 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay challenge.  The theme for this week is use household items.  

How long is a piece of string... For my Day 23, I have used string, a "household item that lingers in the drawer for years and rarely gets used.  

I started with a piece of kraft card measuring 5x5".

I used a circle mask to make the background circles, using "Light Gold" Pan Pastel through the mask.  I added splatters of black and white Posca Pen then mounted the card on to a piece of dark blue card and then a piece of white card.

I die cut a circle in the same kraft card, then coated one side with a wet glue and wound the string in circles till I reached the edge of the die cut.  On the underside of the disc, I added foam pads then popped the disc in the middle of the card.  Using wet glue again I drew a trail and stuck the string to it.

I printed out the phrase "How long is a piece of string", cut it to size then mounted the phrase on to a piece of dark blue card, sticking it in position using double sided tape.
