10 Things I Dig

Wednesday, April 11

Hope your all enjoying your week. It's been a mixed up one for me. I've been helping Chris with a project, and basically trying to teach myself to use a tablet with illustrator and photoshop. I took a graphic design class in college, since I was a fine arts major, but it seriously didn't even scratch the surface. So yeah, that explains for the lack of posts this week. But, here are some things that I am totally in love with.

I'm so happy to have found illustrator Gemma Correll. I just love her drawings, the lines, the characters, everything. So inspiring now that I've been playing around with graphic illustration.
This series I found over at A Cup of Jo, explains simple rules of table manners. Helpful and fun to look at!
This image is just lovely.
This awesome video tutorial by the wonderful Violet one over at Blythe Ponytail Parades. She explains the freelancing technique, as seen in this pretty picture. So cool, I'm definitely going to have to try this, instead of cheating with the blur tool is PSD.
DIY twister? So cool. I've been thinking of some different backyard games to play in the summer when it gets hot. 
How cool is this mini greenhouse? It would be so perfect on a balcony or so mall porch.
These paper bouquets are so lovely. I would love to make these, if I could get my hands on some pretty paper like this.
Found this work by Clare Elsaesser Etsy, and I'm in love. Her palette and brushstrokes, along with these these faceless figures off women are just so dreamy.

This one is obvious.
That husky looks so comfy.

I always thought I wanted a huge back yard, still do. But this awesome porch makes me think otherwise. How cool is that hot tub?
