Hand made cross stitched art is unique and affordable wall art.
For a long time people were embellishing their clothes and household items with hand embroideries.



Another sample of my work is about 11 years old and pattern was found in special edition magazine by “Burda”.

I agree, that cross stitching is time consuming craft, but it give you a surcease in your everyday crazy life.
I found this free and fun cross stitch text generator at Magic Robot Cross Stitch website.

So sit, stitch and enjoy!

Original Painting by Elena Filippova

I am a self taught artist. Sometimes I have desire to express myself in paintings.

And I use my paintings to decorate my house.

One day I’ve decided I need big painting for my wall. The size I wanted was 63″ x 63″.

I realized, that it would be extremely expensive to buy one of this size. So, I’ve painted it myself. I bought some canvas, wooden planks and with help of my husband, I build the frame and attached the canvas to it. Next – I covered it with primer. Than I just had fun for 6 months…

This is the painting I did for my living room.

So do not be afraid to try something you never done before. Just tell yourself that you can do it! And do it!


WALL ART September 20, 2007

Whether you are moving into new house or renovating your old good place, it’s worth consider the wall art. Wall art is an integral part of interior decor and can’t be ignored. In my opinion it’s as important as a wall color or the choice of the sofa fabric.
From this point you can choose from the closest department store or from an art gallery. The choice is yours: either a mass replica of Mona Lisa or unique work of unknown artist. Often both options may cost you same money.

Featured here are the two art works by Andrei Filippov:
