Mirror String Book Series is Here!
Introduction to Mirror Strings
Have you ever worked with drawn “strings” before? If you’re a tangler there’s no doubt you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you’re not, then I think you’ll enjoy learning a bit about strings and then give Mirror Strings a try! Mirror strings are different from your average tangled string. A mirror string is a balanced shape that teases your muse into action and it becomes a part of your final design. In my FREE eBook Introduction to Mirror Strings you’ll learn what mirror strings are, how to use them to create fun drawings, and you’ll see examples of lovely art made by some talented line weavers from all around the world who hang out in our online community of doodlers, tanglers, and line-art enthusiasts!
Whether you like tangling repetitive art across your page or you prefer relaxed doodling, either way once you get to using mirror strings you will probably find them a bit addictive. That’s why I’ve created two more eBooks to keep you entertained and fill your creative yearnings.
Mirror String Playground
In the second book of this series I’ve included over 40 new templates. They are presented in a variety of fun sizes for line-artists of all ages and every level of experience from beginner to the most advanced. When working with mirrored strings you sometimes discover a recognizable form to play with and other times you’ll just decide to free-form it. You can print these strings over and over again on everyday printer paper or cut your favorite sketch paper to size and run it through your printer. I like to use quality card stock for mine because I love using artist markers to add bright colors. Even when reprinting the same string to play with a second time (or even a third) you’ll notice there’s a unique difference in your final creation every time!
Many Mini Mirror Strings
I really stuffed the pages full in this 3rd book in the series! There are more than 50 mirror strings – presented two on a page. I’ve included plenty of artful examples to inspire you along your creative path too.
After printing the page of your choice you can cut your paper in half and weave lines through the strings any way you like. You can then display the final projects in 5×7 frames. Just make sure you leave a slight margin along the edges so you can trim your page down to size. This is also the perfect size for hand drawn designs on the front of a greeting card!
Keeping it Clean
When putting these books together I kept your user needs in mind. The free Introduction book is an instructional guide, but the instruction pages aren’t meant to be printed. They were designed to be viewed electronically. On the practice pages I have insured there are minimal colors to help minimize the amount of ink used when printing those pages. Page numbers are at the far edges. So if you decide to keep and display the art you create on a practice page – you can easily trim off the page numbers. In the two companion eBooks I used no page numbers nor footers on any of the pages. So when you print your mirror strings to draw on, there’s nothing else on the page to obstruct any of your artful lines! The colorful art galleries showing example drawings are there to inspire – and I’ve placed them on pages by themselves. Here again – let them inspire you from the screen and save your printer ink for the pages with fun mirror strings on them… where the ink used is very little, indeed!
These books are delivered in PDF format for easy electronic storage and transportability. I encourage you to keep them in digital format and help us take better care of Mother Nature.
