Hello middle of February. Today marks the fifth month anniversary of hellohydrangea! I thought today would be a great time to start something new. Sometimes I run across an artist that I absolutely love, but I am too amazed to recreate any of their pieces. I think they still deserve a spotlight on my site because there is alot of inspiration to glean.
So, here is our first 'star artist': Amy Joy Watson!
* btw - just because I didn't do an inspiration project doesn't mean you can't do one. Be sure to send me a picture or two so I can share!
Her pieces are amazing! Get this: she carefully cuts bits of balsa wood into geometric shapes and then stains each piece with watercolor. In order to create the 'crumpled' look, she hand stitches each piece together using polyester thread. These pieces both inspire me and intimidate me at the same time.
I about died when I first came across her work. I feel a connection and admiration towards this artist, mostly due to her age. She is only 23 and has done so much already! It is obvious that she knew what she wanted to do at a young age in her life and has achieved that.
You can visit the rest of her work on her website. Now show me some inspiration!
