Amy Earles and more

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This afternoon I rediscovered an old favourite of mine, Amy Earles. I remember coming across her work last summer and being in complete awe of her creativity. Unfortunately and for reasons I do not remember, I forgot all about her work and it took me almost a year to return to that point of awe. Unsurprisingly I'm still extremely charmed by her beautiful paper dolls and pretty, slightly dark, drawings!

On a totally different note, today I completed some more pages from Wreck this journal. One of them being the "climb up high and drop this journal" page. Together with my six year old niece I climbed up the narrow stairs to my grandparents attic. There we opened the window and threw out the journal. She was incredibly excited about the whole ordeal! If anyone's interested I can take some photographs of the newly completed pages and post them later this week?

I also purchased some cute things this weekend from Caitlin Shearer's etsy shop. (I wrote a post about her work a while ago) I had such a hard time choosing from her beautiful artworks! So I'm pretty sure a second order will follow soon ;)

ps. I'm currently experiencing some problems with my photobucket bandwidth. I've fixed the photographs on the first page but unfortunately the pictures on the other pages (that are down right now) won't be visible until the 5th of august. Apologies for the inconvenience!

dank voor de reminder (Caitlin Shearer), ik heb zojuist de baguette and beret brooch gekocht... en het zal vast niet bij deze aankoop blijven!

I read about her paper dolls. They are so beautiful!

I love, love, love, love Caitlin Shearer's work. She has such an amazing pen style, I would love to buy one of those pins - but I have no idea what I would piece it with.

Can you believe that!? Those Pola cartridges are crazy, but it is another beautiful, but dying art form. Every time I buy the film, I just think that it will motivate the company to keep producing it. Have I ever told you how much I love your blog? Goodness, you have such wonderful taste in art/literature/style/etc. :)
