Lace Wrapped Garden Rocks
Texture and Design
It's what I surround myself with
It's something I can never get enough of
I saw a lovely idea where someone who could actually crochet did so over Rocks. Well, I can't crochet but I loved the look it gave the rocks and it reminded me of the way I cut out steel. As always I was drawn to the contrast of these delicate and hard surfaces, just like my shovel art.
I had some old crocheted doilies laying around and what better way to use them than to wrap them around rocks. The thrifts stores are loaded with them so they are always available. I've got at least 20 more to make and then I'll place them in the garden ~ they'll make such a beautiful contrast amongst the flowers.
Did you know that the doilies make the most beautiful patterns when you spray paint over them onto something else. I use them quite often in my Art.
Take something OLD and make it NEW again
