Pebble Art by Sharon Nowlan

May 23, 2015

I don't recall what it was specifically that I was searching for on the internet but somehow it led me to a beautiful art piece made with a few beach pebbles. The instance I saw it, it just took my breath away. I couldn't believe a couple of pebbles can create such a powerful image.

Soon I discovered it was Sharon Nowlan who is the creative genius behind the pebble artworks.  When I found her shop on Etsy, I was even more amazed with her artistry.  

After browsing her collection on Etsy,  I feel so inspired.  I can't wait to do a DIY on this.  Once I have gathered enough pebbles and have the right pieces, I'll get right to work!  

There is one tutorial out there on the internet. Sarah from howweelearn did a beautiful version of the pebble art for just under $2! She suggested to use a frame with some depth such as a shadow box (or create your own which she did in her tutorial ), and use super glue to glue the rocks to the canvas.

If you're as inspired as I am and have your pebbles ready, check out some of Sharon Nowlan's works below to get some ideas to create powerful imagery through the simplicity of pebbles.
