One of my favorite private commissions to date came from Davo, who approached me about making these three pendants: one for his mum, one for his sister and the last for his niece. He wanted something extra special for the three women who have always been there for him, supported him and brought so much love and joy to his life. They needed to represent the empowerment of these women, each individual, but connected to each other and to Davo. Like a puzzle, I was struggling to find the right pieces to put together, so I decided to contact each of the women directly and asked them to give me a symbol that they felt connected to. Davo’s mum gave me a Gingko leaf. Davo’s sister (K), gave me a Squid and his niece (Pia) gave me a bird. Using these three images, I engraved illustrations of all three on each pendant.

HUMAN HEART EYE EMOJI RN 😍. Wedding party ask boxes and thank you gifts are something that have been on my heart for a long time, but I've kind of pushed them aside for projects that I felt were more deserving of my attention until I realized how many of my friends were going from Miss to Mrs. and my brain said "GIRL, pull it together this is the time."....ok maybe that was actually Rae but thank god for her (@Reinsigns) because she helped me step out of my vision and get to work making them happen. SO thank you for coming to my TED talk, and without further ado here is gift #1 THE WEDDING CRASHER. Contains Bride Gang tank top (just pick your size!), a sassy oversized mug (or wine glass, your choice!), and the cutest bride tribe hair ties, all wrapped up in a gold trim box and a personalized gift tag. You best believe I'm working my little booty off to get them all up on our website and Etsy shop, but in the meantime we're happy to take your order by DM. (Please allow at least one week turnaround time!) Double tap if you like to live life a little buzzed! #withlovegiftco
These are 5 of my recent card designs. People have asked me how I did these letterings, so today I am sharing my process for this style of lettering! I draw it with a square shaped brush pen - scan it in - tidy up in Photoshop - trace onto watercolour paper - and fill in with watercolour paint. I really love the effect of watercolour so I want to show it also on my letterings. How do you normally do your lettering? Which card is your favourite? I think the birthday card is the jolliest of all!🌈
Let’s take a walk down Get Messy memory lane! As I @laurenlikesblog am wrapping up my time working at Get Messy I’ve been reflecting on this journey of art, growth and building.⠀ ⠀ I scrolled allllllll the way to the bottom of our 2000+ post feed and found some of the first art journal pages i created and posted here. WOW! So much has changed in my style! I started off so simple and scrapbook esq inspired. And yet i still love these pages!⠀ ⠀ Watching my art grow and evolve has been one of the greatest gifts I’ve received through this process of committing to art journaling on a consistent basis.⠀ ⠀ The first 4 images are my original older work and the last 4 are my newer pages. SO WILDLY different! What an incredible journey art journaling can take you on! 🤯 🎨 🏔 #laurengetsmessy

some days require endless cups of tea (in a #mmpxotst mug, of course) in order to have a productive work day. there are only 3 of these dogwood mugs left online. if you’re in #squamish, you can choose local pick up to skip the shipping ☺️
Hi! After meeting so many new faces this past weekend @fireflyhandmade , I figured it would be a good time for a quick introduction! I'm Kaley, the artist 👩🎨 behind the cheerfully bright paintings. I live in Colorado and love fresh mountain air, cold rivers, and the change in seasons.🏞️ I'm happiest adventuring outdoors or creating in my studio, but there has to be a balance of both! My favorite part about painting is mixing color, it's so messy and fun! Currently, I'm loving working through different collections so that I can explore different landscapes, animals, and color pallets! 🎨
If you’ve been following along in my stories, then you know that I have some new pieces in the works. I love it when creativity takes hold + gives you new ideas that are fun + life giving. That’s where I am right now - in the middle of a wave of inspiration + it feels just right. ✨ . . . . ✨ comment on + like this photo for a chance to win a Willow + Burl Wall Hanging. One winner will be chosen on the last day of May. Must be following us to win. ✨
It was a rainy day in L.A. today and I fully intended on posting this earlier, but I honestly just decided to enjoy a slower day instead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love the rain (major pluviophile over here) and always feel like it gives everything a much needed cleansing of sorts. If you don’t have to be out and about, it’s a great opportunity to just self-reflect and be.
