I recently came across the shadowbox artwork of Simone LeBlanc over at the House+Home section of Terrain. While I could never dream of selling any of my lil’ shadowboxes for close to $300 each (whoa!), LeBlanc’s work offered me some inspiration nonetheless:
Inspired by stars in the night sky, an abstract galaxy of polished agate captures the strength of celestial sights.
I did my first craft fair this weekend (with Butch), and while my debut featured jewelry and home decor (utilizing natural and man-made materials – see my brand new Five Birch Perch Etsy page!), I want to eventually expand to include embroidery/needlework. I’ve been brainstorming ideas for a while on how to explore the “natural” theme while using synthetic thread, which led to a google search on embroidered landscapes. Like drawing, painting or photography, there are a few ways to approach this subject.
