street dollie driftwood art on the beach

September 1st, 2012

Delicate dollie street art on the beach installation by Nespoon. A stunning great idea, which I wish I had thought of myself- I bet this is going to become a big “Trend” amongst the craft, stencil art ladies out there…Reminds me of spider webs glistening in the sunshine.

Nespoon also has done an amazing installation inside an old, abandoned monastery in Grottaglie / Italy…How neat would it be to stumble across these…Now these defiantly look like they would represent spider webs…check them out here via behance

sprouted from a toilet roll

May 28th, 2012

Toilet rolls sprouting with spreading branches are installed to a wall to create a forest… I didn’t realise I would find a toilet roll to be so beautiful. I’m now just imaginaing with the right light on these master pieces these would look amasing photographed in a really contrasting setting. The man behind the srpouting toliet rolls is Yuken Teruya an artist based in New York.
 He works with various materials such as toilet paper rolls, paper shopping bags, Pizza Boxes and Butterfly chrysalises.

Have a look-see to see some more of Yuken’s little ideas sprouted from his mind here. My other favourites is The Giving Tree project and Minding My Own Business. I’m truly inspired 😀

paper cut letters

May 20th, 2012

I just stumbled across this stunning blog/website of Annie Vought – Annie meticulously recreates notes and letters that she’s found, written, or received by enlarging the documents onto a new piece of paper and intricately dissecting the negative spaces with a Craft knife. The handwriting and the lines support the structure of the cut paper, keeping it strong and sculptural, despite its apparent fragility.
Gosh I find this really stunning, What patience to sit there for hours and hours and hours cutting all these out…I do appreciate her fine craftmanship!

“Have you ever wondered what your favourite alcoholic beverage looks like under a microscope? Personally I haven’t thought about it…But after stumbling across these stunning pictures. I can now picture a scientist, drunk off Pina Coladas; staring into his glass and thinking — uhmmmm! wonder what this looks like magnified?
