Visualising scales

I recently sent Wendy a string art card I’d made and she responded by playing it back to me. As I listened to how she heard my strings, I realised that I also wanted to play me making the cards. wendy-card

The first thing I do is use a stencil to prick out the ten points.

Then I take the first colour of thread and join up alternate dots 1-3, 2-4, 3-5, 4-6. 5-7, 6-8, 7-9, 8-10, 9-1, 10-2. I fumbled this a bit, just as I do when I am sewing in a hurry:

Then I take the second colour of thread and join up every third dot:

1-4, 5-2, 3-6, 7-4, 5-8, 9-6, 7-10, 8-1, 2-9, 10-3:

Working out the last few notes in that was a bit hard!

So there we have it – musical instructions for making string art. 🙂

    Another angle from the creator! I love how the backwards and forwards movement of the needle and cotton is more apparent in your musical renditions. Maybe the fumbles are more like accidentals or ‘accidents’ as we used to call them.
