Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas holiday and a creative New Year.

The little painting with a lot of texture (a lot of texture!) — based on an acrylic study originally posted here.
Dianne asked for her logo and business card design to be feminine with a certain ‘shabby chic’ elegance. It also had to communicate the style and quality of her handmade jewellery, and to have girly and vintage elements without being overcomplicated. And yes, it had to be pink.
The logo earrings (based on the pair in the photograph below) are hand-drawn except for the ‘beads’ which are the D, A and O of a particular font. The vintage doily that completes the design was my grandmother’s. Yes, I am a magpie… after all, you never know what’s going to come in handy for a project.
Divine Adornments is also taking part in the Art & Crafts pop-up mini market. We are having two more this year: Saturday 13th and Saturday 20th December. Please visit my Facebook page for more information about these events.
“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
