As a cross stitch fanatic, this is one of the most exciting projects I’ve seen in ages! When I’ve seen this kind of thing done before, it’s usually with wood, but this is made using a stretched canvas with holes punched through, meaning it’s going to be so much easier to hang! Whimseybox suggests that if you have something in mind to stitch but you’re not sure how to do it, search ‘8 bit’ on google images. So fun!
This gorgeous gold and pom pom necklace screams ‘Winter’ to me! This would go perfectly with my new black and white spot jumper. Now I just need the weather to cool down enough to wear it. In the mean time i’ll just have to make this necklace and store it til Winter!
For some reason this reminds me of Egyptian art, gold beetles! Look for one of those bags of plastic bugs they have in the cheap store. For someone who doesn’t normally like bugs, I would love to hang this in my house!
Some songs are so beautiful that they are a work of art in themselves. Here’s a great way to turn them into visual art by painting the lyrics onto a giant canvas! I really like the black and white but you could do multi-colours for each word, each line or you could even paint the whole canvas and write the words on top.
It was hard to choose just one of the art projects from Dans le Townhouse but this one was my favourite. Creating your own art for your house is great because you can make it to suit your own tastes and your interior.
Though this download is an ‘accent’ for projects like scrap booking, it would be really nice to frame as a piece of art!
Every Christmas I like to get my niece Mia a piece of art. She’s still at that age where she doesn’t really care, but I’m hoping that when she gets older she will look back and appreciate it! This year I will give her a copy of this gorgeous free Kelsey Garrity print (bottom image). It’s like a childhood Summer wrapped up in one image!
Here’s another fantastic print from Fellow Fellow, this time a great reminder on embracing the now! Available in three colours, you can frame it, stick it on a plain notebook or even print it off small and add it to a keychain!
Have You Heard Of? | Kitschy Digitals
One of my favourite illustrators Mel Stringer recently wrote about a new site that she is selling some of her artwork through and I’m in love with it! Kitschy Digitals sells digital crafts, blog & design elements, sewing patterns, photos and photographer templates. I’m going to be getting some of the super cute sewing patterns, especially the Wild Olive ones!
