Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Technique Tuesday. I am showing the Bargello technique today. Bargello is actually a form of stitching that forms a variety of zigzag or slanting designs, but has crossed over into cardmaking. I have not done this technique in a long time, so it was fun doing it agian to create a different background and design to my cards.
First cut some strips of paper. These are 1/2 inch strips.
I wanted to make an interesting background, so I layered these in a large wave.
Here is the card I made with the background.
Another way to do this technique is to make your strips different sizes. I used 1/4 inch and 1/8 inch strips for this card. I alternated the witdths and wove them in the corner to make a neat design.
Here is the card I made with this.
There are many ways to use the strips of paper. You can make a diagonal design, herringbone, etc. I hope you will play with this and have fun coming up with some unique designs of your own! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
