Instagrammer of the week #031

Everything on the Cloth and Paper Instagram feed fills me with so much joy that I can’t adequately convey how much I love everything they do. I’m obsessed with their black and white, classic style.

Today I’ll Slay New Printable Available Now!

I’ve been having a really big problem with procrastination lately. I find if I start the day without a plan, or a to-do list, I’m just not productive and wasting a day seems so…wrong….especially when there are people out there who’d give anything for another day. So, I called upon the powers of Beyoncé to help me get my butt in gear. If you need to slay your day, I hope this printable helps you too.

I’ve mentioned my love of Bullet Journalling before on PPT. I like it for its simplicity and its endless layout possibilities. If you haven’t tried it, and you want to increase your productivity, I suggest giving it a go. There is no shortage of layout and list inspiration on Instagram but this week I’m featuring one that I just L.O.V.E. It belongs to Cristina and I just love her monochromatic style. What do you think? Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram too!

Instagrammer of the week #022

I’ve featured Kurt Pio’s gorgeous work on the blog before and I was so enamoured by it that I had to follow him on Instagram of course (wow that sounds creepy!) If you’re not familiar with Kurt Pio, he is an artist from Cape Town and he does these amazing abstracts and gorgeous oversized faceted gems. I’ve found over the years that I like a particular style of art – kinda abstract, bold colours, especially black and white – and Kurt Pio’s work falls pretty much smack bang in the middle of it. Enjoy!

Ylva Skarp

I must admit, I’ve developed quite the crush on the beautiful, type-driven art created by Ylva Skarp. Adorned with splotches of black ink and haphazard scrawls, these wordy pieces appear, to me, to be less about affirmation (not like your usual nature scape overlaid with a soul saving quote from Maya Angelou or J.D. Salinger) and more about clawing the words and what they symbolise back from the edge of ones own experiences. They speak to me in a way not dissimilar to the work of Colin McCahon – though they are more structured, orderly and less…manic?

Love, love, love. New favourite!
