An Illustration Project

botanical-illutration-packaging-design

I am excited to share the finished illustrations from a project I have been working on the last few months.  These are all botanical ingredients, illustrated for a B.C based natural skincare company.  They will be incorporated into the packaging designs and represent some of the most commonly used ingredients in the products.

I look forward to sharing the completed products with you when they have been officially launched!  Stay tuned.

Though it is not yet showing any signs of spring here in Canada, I am beginning to think about fresh botanicals and how you can incorporate them into home decor and fresher up your living space, no matter what the weather is like outside.  I hope you find these images inspiring, check out my previous botanical home decor post here.

How to Create a Gallery Wall

Below is a great video I found on the Ikea website that shows you how to go about hanging artwork in an awkward space.  By pairing numerous smaller and larger framed prints and original works on paper together you can create a unique personalized display that has more impact than if you had just hung one or two lonely pieces on a large blank wall.  To visit my shop and browse watercolor art prints click here.

How to Create a Gallery Wall

Below is another helpful video on how to hang art in a gallery wall style grouping.  This video uses Ikea frames and a paper template they have available, though you could easily make your own.  I love the unity and impact you can create with grouping likes these.

Impressionistic Watercolor Florals

Once in a while I like to loosen up with impressionistic watercolour florals.  I mostly do this for the enjoyment of seeing the movement of the paint on the paper and the blending of colours. Above are a few examples of these florals.  I was able to quickly layout a design on 90 lb watercolour paper and used it as a cover design for my Bullet Journal.Floral Heart

Holiday Gift Wrapping Inspiration

This year I decided to spice things up with my wrapping and use all sorts of different wrapping paper I already had kicking around the house.  I also dove deep into the bag of scrap ribbon pieces I have been saving/hoarding for years!  I had a lot of fun pairing my illustrated gift tags with the various looks  I created for under the tree this year.  I hope you find them inspiring, you can find more of my gift tags in my online shop here.
