Mixed media artist Jose Romussi takes vintage black and white photos of ballerinas and embellishes their already elaborate costumes with colorful thread stitching.
Art / Megan Geckler - this is a cool idea for an outdoor room or a room divider. Very inspiring. I'd like to find some beautiful fabric to play with this design at my house.
Inspiration: words on strings. Make a stiffener mixture: 1 cup of liquid starch mixed with a half cup of flour and blend it in a blender. Next get some string like embroidery floss, pearl cotton thread, crochet thread or baker's twine. Use a template or write freehand using parchment paper. Let dry.
Designer Dominique Falla submitted this beautiful string art installation for the Positive Posters competition, creating the words “We Are All Part Of The Same Thing” out of the negative space between colorful strings wrapped around nails. The thread color moves gradually from hue to hue as you read the words, and gives the illusion of an ombre effect with the overlapping strings.
