The Beady Eyed Craftster is our weekly round-up of shiny (mostly) art and craft related links from across the internets.
â€¢ Weâ€™ve featured nail-and-string art before, but this tutorial from Honey & Fitz is particularly good, and the results are certainly nice.
â€¢ On the subject of tutorials, this one from Creations by Kara is pretty neat: washers made into jewellery via a sort of decoupage process. Cool stuff.
â€¢ It seems that every week I post a link to some stunning photography over on Colossal, but this week â€¦ Iâ€™m going to post a link to some stunning photography over on Colossal. Take a look at Benoit PaillÃ©â€™s amazingly lit landscape photography; the shots are illuminated by a one meter cube light giving them a otherworldly look.
â€¢ And while youâ€™re over on Colossal, why not check out Bartek Elsnerâ€™s cardboard sculptures? Fascinating to see such an everyday material given new form.
â€¢ Regular reader knows that weâ€™re big fans of colour here, but Liz Apple took it one step further and covered an entire wall in paint chips / colour charts â€“ it looks pretty great.
â€¢ And finally: Soviet Space Dogs! A really sweet illustration from Jess Bradley showing, well, the dogs of the Soviet space program. Adorable but bittersweet, because these little dog-o-nauts were generally on a one-way trip.
