Proof You Need This Pink and Coral Color Palette

stationery, Lettering, Calligraphy, Art, Flowers, Pink, OrangeMeganComment

You guys, I used to really dislike the color pink. I wouldn’t wear a pink shirt or accessory to save my life. I guess I was rebelling against the whole, girl = pink, thing. But now it’s my new favorite color (sorry purple!). And this color story is so good! Check out the supply list at the bottom for details on specific paint and stationery used.

Watercolor Ampersand

Some fresh watercolor pieces that will be incorporated into some new designs. I love black watercolor. And you just can’t go wrong with an ampersand. It’s such a lovely shape and there are so many fun variations on this “letter”. Speaking of that, what’s your vote — should the ampersand be considered a letter or not?

I’ve cleaned this photo up a touch, but not much editing has been done in order to preserve that awesome watercolor texture. If you’re curious about the materials I used scroll to the bottom for the deets.

Bright Abstract Wall Art | Atlanta Murals

art, inspiration, stationeryMeganComment

This week, we’re serving up some inspiration from the streets of the ATL. If you haven’t had the fortune of checking out the street art in person, add it to your Spring to do list! You’ll find art peppered throughout the city, but some of my favorite spots are West Midtown and O4W. I found these amazing abstract pieces in West Midtown. I can’t get over the bright blues, yellows and pinks. Enjoy, and please share where you’ve spied the best murals in your city!
