Blogger WIMB: Camilla Pihl

Hello Wednesday!

My favorite day! Not only is the week half way over and I've got a long weekend to look forward to, but it's also a Blogger What's in my Bag illustration sharing day too, yay! This week I had the pleasure of working with gorgeous Norwegian lifestyle blogger Camilla Pihl to create this illustration of her favorite bag items. The illustration has a striking black, yellow, and pink color scheme showcases a few simple and pretty bracelets from her jewelry collection, love the Pihl ("arrow") bracelet! I'm also pretty obsessed with her wooden "camera" iPhone case. 

Since starting this series I've had the opportunity to illustrate so many great blogger's favorite things, and gotten to know so many amazing ladies. If you'd like to see the entire series you can view them in my Pinterest board here...
and if you'd like one for yourself or a friend you can purchase this listing in my Etsy shop here...

Hand Drawn Social Media Icons

Hello Tuesday!

I've added something new and exciting to my Etsy shop, hand drawn social media icons! While designing my own website I created a set of social media icons, and thought it would be fun to offer them in my Etsy shop as well. At the moment I have two styles in several colors, but hope to add more soon. You can find them in my shop section Blog/Website Design. They are available for instant download and at reasonable price too (if you ask me.)

I'm also in the process of designing other blog and website instant downloads. Is there anything else you'd like to see offered?

Spring Makeup!

Hello Monday!

I had a wonderfully relaxed weekend, so I feel energised and super ready for a new week! You too?

I'm especially excited to start off the week by showing off this pretty illustration I created for blog The Beauty Gypsy last week filled with lots of new Spring makeup. Check out the blog post to learn more about these new products. Those new Clinique blushes looks so cute!

There is something about drawing makeup that I just love. I love packaging so I suppose that's the reason. Plus makeup comes in so many pretty colors, so it makes for a pretty illustration. If I could draw makeup products all day long I'd be a really happy girl! 

This week I've got lots of fun projects to work on. Another gorgeous Blogger What's in my Bag will be published on Wednesday, I'm working on several sets of instant digital downloads of social media icons that you can find in shop now, and I'd like to get a few new illustrations drawn (how's abouts a few more makeup prints?!).

EmmaKisstina Silk Scarves

It's Friday, woo hoo!

Building a mini foamcore photo studio was such a great idea. I don't know why I haven't thought of building something like this sooner. It has made photographing soooooo much easier since I struggle to get lighting right. I don't have any solid white surfaces in my home so it's been really difficult photographing my products. This helps me to take really bright photos even in my studio where I don't get really great sunlight. Oh and shocker, I'm even excited to photograph now.

Here I played around with my newest silk scarf design, Cherry Blossom Branches. I think it would look gorgeous knotted around your neck in a bow with a bright pink flush on the cheeks. 

I have absolutely no plans for the weekend which is nice as well as being completely boring. Hopefully I get out of the house and at least do some neighborhood explore... maybe even go into town. Hope you all have a great weekend! See you next week.
