You, Too, Can Be a Fine Artist...

A few months ago, I saw this attractive wall installation using clear office pushpins and now I'm seeing this sort of art on 5th ave in stores. It's a simple idea that can create a subtle yet elegant artistic effect to a room. l found this piece quite interesting to look at, even calming...and simple to do. Sketch out the design on your wall (circular designs seem to be hot but you go with what feels right for you as YOU are the artist) and start pushpinning away. If anything, it will satisfy that obsessive compulsive side to you.
All of the designs I've seen seem to be clear pushpins on white walls, but if you get ultra creative and try color, send me a pic and we'll post it.
