Friday Faves: String Theory

1 Jun

You may remember the fabulous work of Shaun Kardinal, featured a few months ago.  I was completely smitten by his technique of combining found materials and embroidered elements in such an artistic way.  Along with Shaun, there are other artists putting their own spin on this way of working.  Here are a few of my faves!

        I think I need to make an art camp for myself this summer where once a week I try some crazy art idea and then share it on my blog.
