String Art for a Beachy Room

Dear Chicago House,

Mission accomplished, I have completedΒ  the Pinterest Winter Challenge(read about the progress here) and I have succeed!

Here is my SEA & SAND stringtabulous creation

 

 

 

I used crochet and regular sewing thread in blues and greens and purples and wrapped in a very random fashion but created a color gradient going from green/blue to purple /blue. The wrapping took about 3 hours.

Although I have decided that the art work is destined for the beachy living room in the St Louis town house I couldn’t resist putting up in your sunny entrance way…but lets face it it is a pretty weird message to greet people when they come in … so it is destined not to stay there.

I really like the looked though so maybe I need to come up with another more appropriate message … not “welcome” , that is too obvious…anyone have any ideas? ( help me out..I have a poll on what to do next HERE)

What a fun challenge!

Love from

  1. That's fantastic – how creative you are! I would never imagine making something like that. What about "Bienvenue" for your next project? It does mean Welcome, but the Frenchiness makes it a bit different. You could do graded red,white and blue like the French flag!
    Well done on your gorgeous creation

  2. Wow! How amazing and original. How about "wind & snow" for the Chicago house? or "the lake effect" … or "hot & cold" or "summer & winter" (you know, because we really only have two seasons …

    So glad you played along with us on this impossibilities challenge!

  3. What a refressing ideal! I think colors black & white would be cool and maybe just leave a square opening with a black framed old black and white picture of someone or something dear to your heart, and make the string go back and forth with nails all around the frame.It just opens the door to some many ways, such a great piece of art! Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

  4. How about some sort of short inspirational phrase … "Dream Big Things" or "Live Love Laugh" or something like that? Looks wonderful!
