New Art Project
Posted by Sandra on April 1, 2009
I got a neat idea the other day, and realized how simple and inexpensive it actually will turn out to be. I probably should wait until I’ve actually completed it to blog about it, but I wanted to show off pics so I’m posting prematurely.
Anyways, I picked up a couple of packages of teeny magnets (about 1/4″ diameter round) at Michael’s Craft Store the other day. They came in packages of 6 for about $2.00. Then I picked up some heavy gauge jewelry wire for about another dollar. The magnets are much more powerful than they seem, and they stick to the wire like, well, a magnet.
So I did a shoot last night with my four kids, and wanted to get a series of five shots of each of them with different expressions and looks. Now I’m going to print the pics up as 5″x5″ squares, laminate them, and attach them to the wires with the magnets. I’ll string the wire taut vertically, one right above the other, with about a 7″ gap. It should make for a very interesting “work of art” and conversation piece, especially with the fun pics! So I wanted to share the pics, and as soon as the project is done I’ll be sure to post the final result. I’m very excited to get started.
I’ve posted my favorites, the ones that show the personality the most, in “large” format. I put the other in a gallery, if you’re interested in looking!
