CU4CU Silly String Layer Styles Freebie!

NOW CU4CU!  YOU MAY USE THESE TO MAKE YOUR OWN RESALE OR FREE DESIGNS
AND LICENSE THEM AS CU!!
Have you ever tried to scan and extract a string? Or, take a photo of a string, bring it into Photoshop
and extract it? It is so hard. At least for me, by the time I'm done extracting, I've taken so much off it
looks more like a thread. And forget buying some CU strings, I just can't afford it, and then you see the same string in other kits....you have to really be creative with it, make it unique.  I soooo wanted to just get my drawing pad, throw down some quick unique doodles, and at the  click of a button instantly turn it into a string. So, I was off to figure out how to make a descent string
style. I tried so many different textures and blending modes, and I finally found something I like. Granted, they are never gonna be real...but they look real! At least to me...So try these out and see what you think. I bet you could even make a bow out of them with a bow action, or just using a bow template...I took some freyed ends from a real string and played around with it, then added it to the ends of the strings and made some cute strings with freyed ends! There are a lot of possibilities.
So, play around with it, design something unique for your kits, or pages that you want to scrap:) Anyways, I hope you enjoy them and I hope you have a blessed week filled with creativity and happy scrapping!:)

Oh, and don't forget to leave some love!!
