.... typography influenced art! -see second photo down- I've debated in the past about introducing more of a clean crisp graphic style of art to my shop, ( I briefly touched on it in this blog post) mainly because every time I create an art wall with mixed pieces, I always feel the need to balance out my artwork with more of a simple style. I'm not really sure why, probably just personal preference. Anyhow a couple of weeks ago I was creating an art wall for my sister, and felt the need to create something meaningful, graphic and bold... something that would play nice with my sunshine print. I ended up changing it from yellow to blue to match her new turquoise color themed room... (if you want it in blue, just purchase the yellow and state in the message to seller that you want the blue version and I'll gladly print it for you)
... and after doing that I found myself creating this happy little piece of art:
I was able to introduce a little bit of an ombre (gradient) color effect. I printed this guy in a 16x20 size and fell in love. It really pops when hung up on a wall.
Anyhow, a couple of days ago I asked my facebook buddies what they would think if I added this style of typographic art to my shop, and I had a really positive response... so tonight I added the Love print in 7 different Ombre colors:
and also added this print, "Take Every Chance" It uses one of my favorite quotes.
Then I went ahead and virtually decorated a wall using prints from my shop in both 16x20 and 8x10 sizes. :)
Hopefully it helps show how well the two styles of art compliment each other. :) I went ahead and created a separate section in my shop for this typographic styled art, and I'll be adding to it in the weeks ahead. I'm curious to know if you have any specific quotes of phrases you would like to see added?
Also- Dont forget that I'm having a 45% off sale in my etsy shop right now! You have to use the code: SAVE45 when you checkout to have the 45% deducted from your total. :)
p.s. This is completely off topic- but one of my favorite flowers are white cosmos... and I finally found some at Home Depot today- for 99 cents a piece! I would have bought more if I had known they were so cheap. I wish they were perennials... the couple of times they have come back up the following year, something eats them before they get their second set of leaves. :(
Did you have a good weekend!? :)
