Recreating “Starry Night”

Submitted by Lisa on Tue, 06/12/2012 - 15:45

This is one of favorite art projects; I came up with this all on my own. I had TONS of beads  and I had no idea what to do with them. I thought it would be different to see an art piece come alive from the beads. So the first step was choosing a piece of art. One of my favorite pieces is Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” I will admit I was a little intimidated at first at attempting the project, what inspired me the most was that it was different and all together challenging.  This project took me over 3 years to complete, not because it was that time consuming but I needed bright blue beads for the sky. It was taking me forever to get the blue beads I needed.

So I have decided to start a blog, I have been thinking about for some time now and the hubby has been encouraging me to do it. This site is geared towards my crafty inspirations that come upon me. Oh, and from time to time you will be seeing pictures of our dog, exciting things going on in our lives…and photography. Whenever I want to decorate or buy something unique I always think...can I make this and save some money? 8 out of 10 times I can do it so come along on my crafting adventure with me. Over the years I have created pieces that no one will ever have all at a small cost.
