Behind the Lens: D.I.Y. Paper Flower Fun

I get some serious inspiration from pinterest and the amazing artists I have the pleasure of being surrounded with here in London. Today's inspiration comes from the amazing paper artist Laura of 2clvr 4 u designs

I recently worked with Laura on a few small pieces for my London Bridal Expo booth decor, and now am excited to be working on a much bigger project even closer to my heart.

I admit, when I spend time looking at the work of, or being around these amazing artists, I become inspired! I want to try my hand at their arts. I want to create with my hands something beautiful that I can be proud of.

After an afternoon with Shannon of Sweet Stellas I found myself painting and sculpting for days. Did they turn out at beautifully as Shannon's art? Heck no, not even close!

This time I found inspiration in Laura's work but recognized that I had neither the tools or talent for designing, cutting, and sculpting the beautiful paper flowers the way she does. Don't get me wrong, I was still determined to create something beautiful. Where did I go next? To pinterest of course! I found tutorials and printable templates and with a little patience, I made my first paper flowers that actually somewhat resemble flowers!

Take a few minutes to check out Laura's work (you won't be sorry!) on facebook or etsy. She's adding new blooms all the time!

If after staring at these beautiful blooms you're feeling inspired, off to pinterest you go! Find the printable templates for these flowers plus other interesting DIY projects on my DIY Pinterest Board!

Wedding Wednesday: DIY Save the Date!

Good Morning! I was super excited to find this adorable idea for the save the date card. I found it on Pinterest and thought it was a super cute idea and wondered what other options are available?

 

Are you sending out Save the Date cards for your upcoming Wedding?

 

I love the idea of a folded piece that lets people do something with it. The awesome cute out shape catches the eye and stands out.

 

How do you ask your friends and family to save the date for your wedding?

Renovation & Renewal - Month One: Home - Part 2

Okay so remember that DIY project I did with the Mason Jars? I absolutely love them! They make a great addition to the home studio and really liven things up.

After making this project last week though, I kept looking at them and thinking something was missing.  I finally figured it out! They are awesome on their own but with a little help from some kraft paper, ribbon, and eco friendly stamps I could really personalize them to me and my business.

I admit to having a rather large collection of scrapbooking items, and among those items are a variety of stamps. I love the look of a rubber stamped image (especially if you go light on the ink for an vintage feel) or beautifully embossed image (with a little texture & shine). I used a bit of both to create the personal touch.

The result? Beautiful hand stamped tags which show some things that matter to me.

 

Love, Dream, Celebrate, Create

 

What do you think? How's your favourite way to use your rubber stamps?

Renovation & Renewal - Month One: Home

This month I came up with the to do list. This list includes all the projects I want to do around the house. That was the easy part. Then came the tougher part...

What would I need for Supplies? How Much Would they Cost? Where would I get them? Can I do the project myself? If not, Who can I get to help? How much time will I need?

With all this information all written out I started to create a plan based on both the time and money available for these projects.

Month One: Spruce up the studio with inspiration and little changes! Enter my friend Wendy Pelham - and Uppercase Living!

Wendy has introduced me to the beautiful line of Uppercase Living Vinyl Decor sayings. I love the styles, versatility, range of colours and complete customization of these vinyl sayings. I can't wait to put something similar to this on the studio wall!

This Month's DIY originally comes from Lilyshop's Blog - DIY Spray Painted Mason Jars Project.

I'm a bright and energetic person (most of the time) and some days in the studio I feel like it doesn't fit me. Now how to spruce up the space?

I took three empty pasta sauce jars and turned them into a new set of decorative vases to help add a little more liveliness to my photography space. What do you think of the final product?
