A New Craft...........


When did you last try a new craft??? Trying something new is fun! Even when you figure out that that craft is probably  not 'your thing'.. 


I doubt that string art will become a craft staple for me... Just a little too tedious to be enjoyable...


However i kinda think i put the nails too close together and that may have made it extremely tedious... 


 What you may not know is that the feather started out white.... white cotton string and i wondered how paint would travel along that string... well it traveled very well and it was so much fun...Sadly my camera did not handle the glitter well.... So you can't tell but the feather is covered in glitter the same color as the paint... Gorgeous! Hugs! deb

Oh goodness! You brought back memories! I did some string art fall leaves long ago when Dagan was a baby! It was interesting, but not my thing, either. Mine didn't have shimmer, though.

It is fun to try new things! If I ever get my studio back together and organized I have some new projects to try already...in there...someplace--LOL! Making my own rubber stamps and wood burning I can think of right off. Hopefully this winter. (I know I move like a snail.)

always good for us to try new things

Very pretty! I’ve never done this, and probably won’t try now with aging hands that have a mind of their own. 😝 Lol.

Very pretty. I have not tried that craft. I have done something similar in card making where you punch holes to outline an image and then stitch glitter thread around and around - not my thing to do very often - like you said, a bit tedious.
adding the paint was a brilliant idea - really set it off.

It is gorgeous, Deb! I can see that it would be tedious. I try new media a lot - like gouache vs. watercolor. Does that count?

Hugs, Eileen
