By Daily Mail Reporter UPDATED: 07:12 GMT, 6 July 2011 The tide waits for no man - which is why the creator of these stunning works of art etched onto the beach has got his work cut out. From a pod of dolphins playing in the ocean to a tender moment between a mother a child, Jamie Wardley's eye-catching art works have adorned beaches all over the north of England and Scotland. The former ice and sand sculptor, who decided to widen his canvass after a collaboration with another artist in 2007, was so successful with his first commission that he was asked to return the following year.

That's some party trick: Model-maker produces life-size replica of Tyrannosaurus Rex in 55 hours, using 1,400 balloons... and a LOT of hot airBy Daily Mail Reporter UPDATED: 10:30 GMT, 1 July 2011 Try competing with this balloon artist and you would definitely be wasting your breath. Mark Verge has been perfecting the art form for more than 16 years and has created a 39ft life-size replica of a Tyrannosaurus Rex out of 1,400 balloons. It was just one of the sculptures made by the model-maker along with a triceratops, spinosaurus, stegasaurus and utahraptor for his show in Ontario, Canada. Masterpiece: Model-maker Mark Verge, from Ontario in Canada, made his balloon dinosaurs by scaling up from toy action figures Mr Verge, 43, who is originally from Nova Scotia, first started making balloon animals in 1995 after coming across a book about the hobby.
>Much in the same spirit as the thumbtack mural that we posted about here , this wall art was created with a staple gun. The DIY possibilities are endless if you have a bit of time, a good idea, and a relaxed landlord (or, a whole lot of spackle). French artist Baptiste Debombourg used over 35,000 staples to create these "frescoes" on the wall. The texture and shine of the metal create a very dynamic effect, and we think that this idea could be translated in some creative ways in the home. This is a great idea for an earthquake safe piece over the bed! <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Eric Daugh uses thumbtacks to make large portraits of people. Sort of along the lines of Christian Faur’s crayon art we posted a while back , Daugh uses a 3D round object, thumbtacks, to create a pointillist piece of art. These large pieces look realistic from far away but are very abstract up close. It’s obvious whoever wrote his description/bio owns a thesaurus: Using push pins, the innocuous, adhesive, near-detritus of our everyday Eric creates the view from here. His work is that rare arial perspective of the faces we see everyday, the vistas of common personalities, the longview of the human.
By Rachel Quigley UPDATED: 01:02 GMT, 11 June 2011 He needed a lot more than a bucket and spade and a few pats on the top. In fact Ed Jarrett, from Connecticut, needed 1,500 volunteers and 1.6million pounds of sand and water to build the world's largest sandcastle - breaking his own record in the process. The 37-foot, ten-inch sculpture was certified as the world's tallest by Guinness World Records on Wednesday after it was built. King of his castle: Ed Jarrett broke his own record for having the world's tallest sandcastle at 37 foot, ten inches high He first built the world's tallest sandcastle in 2003 with a 29-foot structure, then broke that in 2007 with a 31-foot, six-inch structure.
