String u along

WE MADE IT OURSELVES


We really did intend on getting out to Bunnings on our 'mutual making' day yesterday, but it was such a crappy day in Melbourne, and let's face it there are no sausages on offer on weekdays, so we had to make our string art masterpieces from things we already had at home. very hml.

Luckily Ramona had remembered a past purchase from Spotlight and I managed to find a suitably co-ordinated selection ofwool scraps lurking in the back of the craft cupboard.

As we were without the chip board, nails and patterns prescribed in the Pictures with Pins instructional guide book, it took a while to work out our 'freestyle' designs... but in the end we were pretty happy with the results. Even if we didn't manage to make the 'moon buggy'.

Twenty mintues later - presto! A fantastic plastic version of string art ready to hang... and all without hammering in a single nail.

and can I say - not being the maths nerd that Beck is, I found the string art encredibly hard to do. It requires doing bendy things with the brain - not my forte -but also went some way to explain string theory to me - in the sense that i know now
that I will NEVER know how
the universe works...

They look great. I just have to start thinking about how fax machines work & I get confused, so you're doing fine.

Loving this.

Basically as long as there is plastic involved I'm a happy camper.
