String Art

I've fallen in love with string art! Amber sent me an email about it and after that I went to town learning everything I could about it! I purchased a small kit to made one, I just wanted to see how to begin one! Flickr is filled with beautiful string art! Just look at the photos below!

The seagull is my favorite!

Found a Florida gal making string art on etsy - so beautiful! ArtZodiac is a very awesome shop - go look! I can't wait to make one of my own! I just need some extra hours added to the day please! If anyone knows more about string art please email all you know :)
I'm very interested in learning more!

Wow, those are beautiful! How time consuming is string art? It seems like it would be pretty complicated. I look forward to seeing your own. :)

My brother made one of these once. I totally forgot about it until now! I don't know anything but it sure is cool. Looking forward to what you make. I am thinking it will come naturally to you considering your talent in embroidery... seems related.

My parents still have one of these hanging down in the basement...It looks like this may be an old trend making it's way back :)

Those are absolutely beautiful. We had to make them (although not that complicated) in middle school. And the real reason I'm writing, thank-you so much for the post cards I absolutely adore them. They are the cutest and you are the sweetest! xo
