I have so much enjoyed working on my friend Eneida's re-branding. Her delicious creations make me drool daily. #thefarmbaker #homemadeandhonest #rebranding #rebranded #nonnaiandd
I was lucky enough to have been asked to help with a little sign for the Pop-Up Market at Anthropolgie for The Cookie Baker's Enieda. I had such fun creating it for her. Speaking of, I need to share her revised logo with you & all the other fun items I was able to help her out with! They were are so exciting to do. My next post shall be overwhelming, I promise. Lol!
Here are a few laser cut wedding invitations I've been playing around with awaiting the arrival of my glowforge. I am so excited to see how much detail I will be able to get with this incredible machine once it arrives. The projects in my head are mounting and the anticipation is killing me. Patience, Shawna, patience...
It's done folks! Yay, Thank you Jill for trusting me with this absolutely FUN project!
Playing with collage. I'm liking it.
My friend Misti got a new job working for a preschool and was wanting to see if I could update their logo (shown at the top) to a more refined illustration. I was thrilled. I love doing things like this. I made a 1st round sketch and we made some edits along the way to get a final adorable version just for her to use. Thank you Misti for asking me to draw this! I love love loved getting to help with this.
My apologies. But, I am back on track and exploring new things. I made my first font. It was so easy thanks to http://fontastic.me/ All made fonts are now availble in my shop. They're shown of in little samples of art & the second image shows all the Siri Font together.
Check them out!
This pattern has picnic table written all over it.
My grandma has not been doing too great. In the hospital for pneumonia & just not in good shape. I made this little illustration last year. It's a little collection of items that remind me of her house when I was little. Milk glass, old vintage camera, peonies. All the things that make me smile. I wish Grandmas lasted forever.
This last month has been full of gathering things from Grandma's house and keeping the things that remind me of her house from when I stayed there often as a child. It's never anything a worth or even anything others in my family would want, but they mean a lot to me. She is moving into an assisted living place where she has her own little apartment. No need to cook or clean anymore Grandma! Yay! But, it does fill me with urgency to get any items I want now before they are gone forever.
I took the little "paint-by-number" butterfly hanging from the kitchen sink light. My grandpa passed away when I was about 3 years old and have a picture of him holding me up to the butterfly. It makes me think of him & Grandmas house. It now currently resides in our laundry room on the light pull for that area. Makes me smile every time I see it.
I also was going through the basement seeing if there was anymore milk glass pieces I love & saw this old plastic curtain covering a cart/shelf. I instantly loved the pattern. I was originally thinking of taking it and making something, but as we are getting the house on the market to sell - I really don't need anything else brought back into the house. So, I took a photo.
This photo is my inspiration and interpretation for this pattern I made. I will always be reminded of Grandma's when I look at it. I modernized the colors and made some tweaks to the style & pattern. But, it is very similar.
I have always loved ferns & poppies. I thought I'd take a little inspiration from this image I found on pinterest. It's really dreamy deep strong green teal colors that I loved to have the ferns in.
Made this today thinking of my daughter, Siri. She can be a handful sometimes, but will always be my little diamond int he rough. I always look forward to our days together & cherish the time I get with her. Lucky me.
Here is a free Illustrator Graphic Style I made today. I hope you enjoy! If you are not sure how to use this look up tutorials on youtube on how to use a Illustrator Graphic Style. There is tons of help there. If you'd like to share your own art made with this graphic style I'd love to see! Thanks!
