Check this out, guys! Aren't those so beautiful! It's amazing what some people can do with lots of creativity, talent, free time and the right materials :O

These look really great. They look like painted river rocks or from the sea maybe. I bet that overall work took some time but the details in there make them look amazing. They actually look like artwork I could buy and enjoy for many years to come. I love the one with the village house going up the slope and the snowfall. That's what it looks like, at least.

These are awesome! It is kind of the art thing to do, making something creative out of nothing. And I'm so glad! This kind of thing could decorate a backyard, or the garden itself.

I'm going to show this thread to my niece who is my last recourse when it comes to art. I have no artistic hand and my creative juices are very limited when it comes to decorating. But my niece is a genius so I'm sure she can relate to this thread and think of a way to apply the design for our backyard garden (that's my place for creative tinkerings).

That is nice, if you do let me know what she says ;) I would personally love trying something like this, but where I live I haven't seen that many rocks with interesting or workable shapes :( I'm guessing the person who did this lives in a place with access to a lot pretty interesting rocks or they have a special machine to cut their rocks :p

I'm really guessing those are most likely river ones... I used to live near a river and you could find a lot rocks that looked like those, but sadly I no longer have access to said river :( I liked those most as well :D

Really effective, love seeing results of peoples creativity and inspiration.:)

It's great.

Maybe even a living room ;)

I keep coming back to look at these as the details are very striking. i admire the time and effort put into all of these. Looks like the rocks were carefully selected because the sizes are so similar as they rest against each other. The little french windows look so perfectly placed that I can feel the aching wrists that took the time to make them so neat. The work is quite admirable.

You seem to really like it :) Have you ever thought of giving this a try? I've honestly thought of doing it, it sounds like the most wonderful hobby ever! What a way to de-stress and relax! Similar to coloring for adults, you know? My mom's therapist actually recommended her that (coloring).

I like the ones made into flower. I have always had a thing about rocks in the garden, I really like the rocks, I like to keep things looking natural and sometimes you just need the right rock to make it all very striking. @zigs I don't know about painting a load of rocks but maybe leaving a painted random lady bug or something would be funny.

There is a thing I noticed people have started to do in this region, they have been stacking rocks- I wonder where else I heard of that :rolleyes:

You've got a point. They're so versatile, you could probably find a place for them all over the house. The possibilities are endless :]

Zigs! :p Who else :p ?

Yeah, I think the possibilities when it comes to colors and shapes is endless as well, what a nice way to express one's creative side :) I'd even buy the materials, but gathering them must also be fun!
