Something a little different

This project is a bit different than much of what you have seen from me before. Not everyone likes shabby chic style (gasp!), so sometimes I do something bit different.  The picture doesn't really capture it well.  It looks pretty cool in person.  Although, even as I am posting this I can imagine this done in a shabby chic style.  Guess I have another project to try...

This is made of rolls of scrapbook paper tied with cord and glued to background.  Randomly add embelishments to the strings tied around the paper rolls.  Leave long strings when tying the rolls, glue the roles to the background and pull these strings in random patterns to the outside edge of the backing and tape them securely on the back.   Frame with a shadowbox frame.  I think this might look really cool with old music, printed pages, etc.  If anyone does more of a shabby chic or cottage style version of this, please send me a picture!  I'll add mine to this post when I get it done.
