I'm totally in love with these typographic designs by Eva Juliet - inspired by Norwegian Rosemaling prints. You can choose any letter/number and have the words beneath personalized. A wonderful anniversary/ birthday gift?? I think so!
The incredibly talented interior stylist, Jenny, of The Little Green Notebook, picked up a mid-century abstract oil painting at a flea market, and used her own personal touch to bring it to life. She realized that the painting's colors were a bit more muted than she intended for the vibrant space it was to placed in. So to make the piece work, she painted directly on top of it! It's such a simple and inexpensive way to give a dated piece of art a modern new life! And it's really hard to go wrong when it's an abstract! All of her interiors are a feast for the eyes, but it's little hand-crafted treasures like this that make them really come to life. Beautiful work Jenny!

So excited to try this DIY project I found over at the awesomely inspirational blog for all things crafty- JK JK. We all have faced the challenge of a boring blank wall in need of art. So here's a wonderful solution (especially helpful for those of us on a budget!) Directions found below via eighteen25.
DIY Painted Wall Frames
Paint, Brushes, Items to trace
1. Find a blank wall.
2. Gather a few good shapes to trace onto your wall (like boxes or books.) These traced shapes will be your frames.
3. Use a pencil and start tracing shapes onto the wall. I'd suggest starting with the bigger shapes. Fill in the spaces around the big shapes with smaller ones. You can always erase and start over if you need to!
4. Get your paints ready. Use a few different sized brushes to help vary the width of frames. Here's a little inspiration when planning your designs: here & here.
6. Your done! Congrats! Consider hanging some photos or drawing inside your newly painted frames.
Feeling inspired by the work of Sinead Leonard today. I just love the use of strong pops of color, texture and layering in her digital collages. She calls these images "[An] army of female warriors... These women have the integrity and power to create and control the world married with the grace and compassion not to destroy it in the process." Love that. via Trendland
Such lovely little illustrations by designer Malin Koort. My favorite is the one with freckles :)
