Get a free canvas from the Canvas Factory

Get a free canvas from the Canvas Factory

If you’re anything like me, you have tons of photos on your computer, phone and tablet, just waiting to be printed out and displayed in your home. I have empty photo frames sitting on shelves, gathering dust;  I forgot to take out the sample image in a couple of them and had visitors ask which members of my family they were. That would be embarrassing enough, except that it happened 2 years ago and they’re still there…

The images that you capture of your family and friends are priceless. With help from The Canvas Factory, you can turn them into amazing pieces of art on canvas, acrylic glass or metal for you to treasure for years to come.

Travel through Color – Inspiration for your next painting project

Travel through Color – Inspiration for your next painting project

I adore travelling the world; I believe that it’s one of life’s greatest pleasures to be able to experience other lands, climates and cultures. Indeed when I return home, I plaster my walls, fridge and computer screen with images that I’ve captured from my journey, just so that I can hold onto that feeling a little bit longer. So the thought struck me; why not bring the colors that inspire me from around the world into my home?

The first step is to identify what inspires you – is it a particular color palette, shade or texture of your favorite image? What is it about the photo that evokes that feeling of longing and wonder? Then you need to draw out the essential hues and tones, in order to find paint shades, furniture and accessories to match.

For now I’ve decided to start by sharing some stunning images found through Pinterest (where all original sources and credits can be found), as well as some I’ve taken from my own travels. I’ll then take those color palettes and share some ideas and inspiration with you in upcoming blog posts.

Please head to http://www.paintmyplace.mobi/travel-through-color-inspiration-for-your-next-painting-project/ for the images. Enjoy! :-)

365 Project – it’s happening!

365 Project – it’s happening!

Well after some great examples and inspiration, I’ve decided: I’m doing a 365 project this coming year! 😀 That’s right, from the 1st January 2013 I am going to be involved in not one but TWO 365 projects! I pledge right here and now that I am going to:

  1. Take a photo of my beautiful daughter Hannah every day for the coming year to document the amazing changes that are about to happen in her 6 month – 18 month developmental stage.
  2. Take a photo of my old and then my new store every day, to remind myself of what hard work, passion and perseverance brings.

I’ll be posting the photos of Hannah on this blog and the photos of my store on my Honeypot Lingerie blog.

Where did I get my inspiration, you ask?

From Seven Cherubs and A Beautiful Mess. You should check them out, they’re amazing!
