I wanted to share these beautiful watercolur prints with you on this sunny Wednesday morning. Yao Cheng is from Columbus, Ohio and she started her design studio in 2012 after working in the fashion industry. She says that she has always had a fondness for creating beautiful works of art. “Painting and drawing has always been an extension of who I am. Ever since my mom took me to my first drawing class at the age of 3, I knew this was it. This has remained the best and most enjoyable way for me to connect with the world.”
Yao’s work is so beautiful. I’m captivated by the Santorini print below. Be sure to check out Yao’s Etsy store too.

It’s a beautiful, rainy day here in Perth. We don’t have a lot of rainy days so when they happen I make sure to really soak in as much wet weather awesomeness as possible.
While these prints from Yao Cheng aren’t about rainy days they have a kind of melancholic-winter’s day feel don’t you think?

If you caught My Three Favourite Things newsletter a couple of weeks ago you would have seen a beautiful watercolour wedding invitation designed by Santiago Sunbird. I’m in awe of Bree and Sarah Hankinson’s work. It’s beautifully designed and while it is watercolour (and watercolour is so ‘in’ at the moment) it’s also understated and unique, which is everything you want from your wedding stationery, right?

As you all know, I love art. Art is transformative. It helps us to see the world in different ways. Art can move people, it can rally people, it can be the catalyst for great change.
Creating social awareness through art is something I believe in and support which is why I want to share the work of Winsome Easel with you.
“Winsome Easel believes that beautiful words and authentic relationships can transform this world. Because of this, 10% of all proceeds go to ending human trafficking and modern day slavery through an End It Movement partner organization called Made in a Free World. Your purchase is helping make a difference in the global story of freedom!”
Oh and it also helps that Kristin’s work is gorgeous too. You can buy beautiful art and help change the world. Win win!

These prints from Oh My Deer caught my eye today. I’m a sucker for a beautiful, hand lettered poster. If you’ve seen pictures of my office on Instagram (@krissyb) you’ll know what I’m talking about. Nothing looks better than a beautiful, flowing script proclaiming some catchy wisdom about getting up, dusting yourself and giving things another go (check out my Words That Inspire board to see what I am talking about).
I think I have *just* enough space on my wall for these three.
Happy Monday everyone. I wanted to share the pretty, pretty work of Gennifer Ciavarra from Altar and Mantle. The colours she uses are so vibrant and the birds are super cute.
1. Bright Red Love Tree.
2. The Tall and Short of It.
3. Calling Down Sophia.
4. Red Folk Tree.
6. Rainbow Feathers Number 1
6. I Don’t Know Why the Sky is Blue
Beautiful doesn’t really describe these art prints by Mei Lee adequately. They are equal parts beguiling, smashing and drop-dead fanciable!
I love the watercolour (I’m not over watercolour yet) and the words are from the likes of Bukowski and John Greene, so, two thumbs up there too.
1. Just Hang in There.
2. Green August #1.
3. Charles Bukowski.
4. Made to Live Without.
Have you seen Jessica Durrant’s watercolours on Etsy? I think they’re pretty amazing. I love her fashion series but her Paris in Winter illustration has stolen my heart! LOVE!
