Moroccan Mirror DIY

I’d so love to give you a peak at my latest inspiration and current DIY stencil fab project.

I came across these amazing graphics via DesignAmour.

There are so many talented designers out there, I love to discover someone new each week. They have so much going on over there, check out round two of the moroccan graphics, I found there.

What really grabs me are the colors along with symmetry and composition of the designs.

I’d love to find tiles along a similar vein for a bathroom that I’ll be working on soon!

Now for a peak at my current DIY project…

Here is the large square mirror that I inherited from a friend. As much as I liked it’s original finish I wanted to enhance it.

I know it looked cool in it’s orignal form, but I just can’t wait to layer in some more colors and details. I promise to show you when I do

Friday, I will post a finished product along with pictures of a huge art hang that I just did at a Melrose residence. Stay tuned šŸ™‚

Sophisticated Surfaces

Here are some surface designs to cheer the mundane.

An artist from Britain, Natalie Singh makes graphic prints and develops them into cards for family and friends.

I find this print especially eye-catching and could even picture it as a wallpaper.

Love the background colors and pattern on this one!

A final fave is this curvy retro pattern below.

Leaf swirls

Natalie also has a shop where you can purchase cards and she oozes with original featuresĀ on design.

Another artist that has caught my eye on several occasions is Jill Bliss with her organic shapes and eco-inspired designs. One of my favorite topics to discuss in an artwork is nature and it’s splendor. Based in Oregon with roots in California, Jill’s work investigates the flora around us here.

These poppies are delicate and Ā beautiful.

Love the minty fresh card!

Oh, what a mural.

Jill maintains a stunningĀ shop of where you can truly grasp her unique style. I was reminded of Jill’s work on my trip to Kentucky, where I noticed some of her splendid notecards for sale,Ā these cards available here. Ā At Jill’s shop you can learn more about her inspiration as an artist and look at her portfolio too.

Look forward to catching a glimpse of another artist’s cards tomorrow morning along with Jenna’s desk redo coming soon!
