String Art Fun customer Marge Burns sent us this picture made from the free shell pattern. Instead of using it the regular way with nails and such, Marge made it into a card with embroidery floss and then added gems. The pattern was used at full size.
The picture above is of Cross 1. The baseboard is a wood plaque they purchased from USA craft store Hobby Lobby. It resembles a slice cut through a log with the bark in place. The string art cross is going to be a Christmas present for Angela’s father and I am sure he will treasure it.
The pictures below are of Cross 2 and Girl praying. Angela described the process for us; “He nails the pattern, puts a claw hangar on the back, spray paints everything, and then strings the project when it is dried. The blue cross he used a variegated blue thread and did a layered painting job of white and light blue paint.”
