#needleworkmonday :: Fun with String Art

4개월 전


Happy #NeedleWorkMonday lovely NeedleWork Artists!

#Needleworkmonday and #Steemitmamas is holding a collaboration contest which ends today called the String Art Contest Collaboration!. I have never tried string art before and after trying this, I have to say that it was fun! And I am joining the individual project category.

I chose to do this piece for my mum after seeing a number of samples online. But I wanted to try a reverse effect and see how far I could go (Although, I can still go further with more lines but I need to find more yellow thread 😅)


~ ~ ~🌷~🌷~💕~🌷~🌷~ ~ ~

I started with a sketch using drawn lines as my grid:

followed by pinning the sketch on a corrugated board paper as my base:

I poked the paper and board using a tool but I'm not sure what it is called:

After poking all the holes, it was time to crazy string (i.e. in no particular order):

And the crazy stringing started with a needle and some crosstitch thread:

I chose yellow to symbolize sunshine 🌞.

After about few hours later, this came up:

I am going to get a photo frame to put this in and present it to my mum for mother's day, pressie round 3.

wao, you look wonderful @marblely I charm both the work in reverse, fill in the background and not the letters, as the forms in which you linked the strings, as it was in a way that was formed art with the tracing of the strings

·

Gracias @fabianaporteles! 😘 I am loving string art 🙃

This such an inventive piece! I love how the letters developed out of negative space. And that the strings not only form the central theme but also the framing. Wonderful tutorial - although I may be a tinytinytiny bit too impatient for art with strings :-DDD

·

Haha I agree it takes quite a bit of patience (and thread) to fill up the space and As you can see, I ran out of both 😅. Thank you @neumannsalva 😘 I think if I did just the words, I would have enough thread to fill them up nicely. Hope you are feeling better there. Sending hugs to you 💗💗💗

Interesting to do the art as negative space. Nicely done, I am sure your mom will like it.

I think that tool you weren't sure about is an awl.

·

Thank you @lordvdr! Oo it is an awl? Yay! Now I know, thanks to you. Thank you for identifying it for me 🙂

This turned out so unique and pretty! I love the angles and how the thread gathers up together at certain points...almost like a highlight! Your mom will love this! I agree with @neumannsalva, it’s almost as if it’s self framed! 😄

Thank you for entering!!!

·

Thank you @crosheille 😘!! Thank you for bringing us this contest with @steemitmamas!! Else, I wouldn’t have gotten to know about this amazing art and try it for real!
