artwork for Audrey’s room

Remember how I was re-doing Audrey’s room? Here is the cute inspiration board:

Well, it’s still unfinished.

I made some progress back in March, but since then, nothing has happened. I am waiting on the biggest part of the project which is a whole wall of built-ins to go around the window. I have it designed in my mind but I haven’t pursued anything because I know what I want will be more than I want to spend on having it built. We could try to do it ourselves, but again, that takes time and we don’t have a ton of that laying around right now either. And then there is the option of doing a good ikea hack and building in pre-made bookshelves (something like this) but I haven’t found items with the correct dimensions for the space. So that’s what’s holding me up. One of these days I’ll figure it out.

In the meantime, I’ve been collecting artwork to hang on her walls. Audrey is fun and full of personality and I’d love for her room to reflect some of that through a whole wall filled with art.

The collection started with Miss Paige’s (as Audrey calls her) horse canvas.

audrey-horse-canvas

Paige has such a beautiful collection of photographs-turned-canvas prints to choose from so I let Audrey take her pick and she selected the horse (whom she named Clover). Any of the prints would have been beautiful, but I’m so glad she chose sweet clover.

Paige has offered JDC readers a discount on all of her gorgeous canvases – hop over to her shop to see them all.

We also chose a few favorites from Minted.

minted-shop-drawing

This illustration reminds me of something out of the Madeline books – so cute. Adding in a graphic black & white drawing will work well for tying in the striped rug.

balloon-artprint

And this is a fun print as well with the personalized name and pretty watercolor look. I ordered it with the frame for only a few dollars more and it was well worth it.

Minted has nailed the market for holiday cards, but did you know they also have a great selection of artwork? Lots of choices for kids and adults alike. I also like that minted supports independent designers and gives them a platform to showcase their artwork.

From now until September 21st, take $25 off your order of $200 on any art orders.

And, of course, I’ll be using some of my own designs in Audrey’s room.

Like the love one another print and a twirl print (lettered by Lindsay Letters).

You can see all of the artwork in my shop here and take 15% off your order with code GRATITUDE. Also, shipping is always on us!

I’ll keep adding cheerful artwork to her collection and someday (hopefully soon!) I’ll get the whole gallery hung on her walls. I’ll be sure to post photos along the way.

i couldn’t stop (watercoloring)

I normally work on mondays, wednesdays and fridays when all four kids are in school. But last week I was not feeling well (a terrible head cold that made my brain feel fuzzy) and there was just no hope of me doing any actual thinking work. Instead, I took the opportunity to pull out my watercolors and see what came out on paper.

Once I started, I just couldn’t stop.

(via instagram)

The combination of a quiet house, a tired body and time to just create was so refreshing. This doesn’t happen often and I was pleased with the paintings that resulted.

three-watercolor-paintings

The illustrations have turned into a new series of watercolor art prints!

The first is called Let Your Light Shine:

let-your-light-shine-artprint-taped

A few assorted lamps (I kinda want each one for my house!) with reference to Matthew 5:16.

light-close

The next print is called Clothe Yourselves:

clothe-yourselves-art-print-taped

All my favorite go-to clothing choices with the reminder to also put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience (Colossians 3:12). I love this one to keep perspective when I’m dressing in the morning. Clothes are cute, but I also want to be mindful of my heart.

clothe-yourself-close

And the third (my personal favorite!), Fruit of the Spirit:

fruit-of-the-spirit-artprint-taped

All sorts of delicious looking fruit and, of course, the well-known fruit of the spirit verse (Galatians 5:22-23). This one is so fun to add color to a kitchen.

fruit-of-the-spirit-close

 All three prints are now in the shop and available for pre-order (prints will be shipped the week of June 9th). Prints can be purchased individually, or as a set (for a discount!).

filling our minds (and mirrors and refrigerators and walls) with truth

As a bonus for the Paper Works members, I created this set of scripture note cards.  So many of you requested to just purchase the cards and I’m here to deliver.

scripture-cards-packaged

The set includes 52 individual cards with thirteen different stripey colorways. They are cheerfully simple, filled with encouragement, promises, reminders and TRUTH.

scripture-on-mirror-fridge-walls

Perfect for posting on the bathroom mirror, the refrigerator or a wall.

Here’s another great way to use the cards: a flip book.

scripture-card-flip-book-supplies

Simply print and trim a set of scripture cards (on a heavy cardstock for durability – like this),

hole-punch-set-of-scripture-cards

punch a hole in the corner of each card (I used one as a guide so the holes were all lined up)

connect-scripture-cards-with-book-ring

clip on a book ring (like these)

scripture-flip-book

and you will have a portable flip book of memory verses. My best friend carries one of these in her car – when she has a moment to wait in line for pick up or at the starbucks drive-thru, she can take a second to look at scripture instead of the most recent status update.  Such a great idea!

52-patterned-scripture-cards

I tried to make the designs appeal to both men and women – some a decidedly more feminine in color, but I think the men in your life will also appreciate having scripture around even if the border is a cute coral stripe.

set-of-52-scripture-cards-download-now

These scripture cards are now available in the shop as a digital download.

scripture-buy-now

//UPDATE// How many times have I poured over and over these cards making sure there were no mistakes?! And, yet, there it is! (ever instead of every). Ugh! I have now fixed the file so you are all set with a grammatically correct set of cards. Thanks to the extra sets of eyes today who pointed it out :)
