I finally, finally finished up my largest string art installation EVER. I had an idea one day in the shower (all great ideas come from a good shower) that I should try a face in string. One thing led to another, and it got bigger and bigger, and I finally settled on Marilyn Monroe.
I'm so happy with how it came out! I wasn't sure how it would all work, and I think it's working pretty well... this now sits above my desk, in the living room, which was formerly blank.
Majorly spruces up my work zone & gives me something to look at when I'm brainstorming. The string is navy blue, on 12 Tea stained tablets. I wanted some plant life on my desk but since I'm sadly not next to a window, a vase will fill in just fine. I threw this redwood tree trimming in and it's stayed alive for a while now:
Cute widdle twee. I had finally caught up on my string art orders one week & was able to experiment with my new designs, this is Bluebird 2.0 - much more detail! Available here.
I was goin' for the vintage swallow tattoo... I love that style. Nailed it! Haha... get it, nailed it..
I threw this design in the shop, available here.
Then I made this "Create" sign for Cassie over at Primitive & Proper, she was the winner of my recent string art giveaway over at Redoux:
This one was for my sister as a wedding present:
And I finally got to finish my makeably sign, which I did as a thank you gift for the awesome people over at makeably.com
Just a lil update on the new stuff. Lots has been going on around the house too, we installed a new faucet - I can't wait to show it to you! It's changed my life. Well, the doing-dishes side of my life anyway. We also got the courage to paint a wall navy blue. It came out awesome.
Off to Home Depot, what's new in your hood?
