The latest iPhone background is coming to you circa 2012. Are those painting classes still a thing? You know, the ones where you byob and learn how to paint a picture. The grown up version of paint by numbers. Anyway, this is actually a photo I took of a wall in one of those shops years ago. It was an entire wall of paint splatter and I couldn’t resist a close-up. So fun to look at and way cooler than whatever we painted. Feel free to make this your new phone background. Sharing is caring, but keep it classy, it’s for personal use only.

Thanks for stopping by! If you love inspiration, check out what we’re up to on << Pinterest >>

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!
