Digital Art Prints

I've been slowly but surely making my way into the world of digital art design.  I'm by no means an expert in the digital arts, but I've taken what I do know coupled with color inspiration from fabrics like pillows and bedding, and started designing a few prints for decor around my house. 

The colors from a pretty floral fabric that I'll be using for pillows in my living room were the inspiration for my 'Quick Fox' print!  The phrase 'The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog" uses every letter from the alphabet...I thought it was a fun and whimsical print to put next to the bookshelf since it has to do with typography, and well, so do books!



Using the same colors as the print above, I created the 'Every Little Thing' print with a navy, lime, and teal combination. It's a gentle reminder to take a deep breath and relax!  I think the colors and phrasing would make this a great print for a gender neutral nursery or kid's room!



I created the 'French Days of the Week' print using colors from a bedspread in the flip house, but the print ended up being the perfect splash of color in the bathroom! This print is 12x12 in size.

And finally, a new take on an old classic... "Keep Calm and Craft On" was created to hang in my office/craft room!

All of the silver frames throughout my house were from the Ribba series at Ikea!  Inexpensive and modern, can't go wrong with that!

 I have one more print to share and it is near and dear to my heart...
It's the silhouette of my beloved kitty, Cooper, who passed away on December 1st.  I still miss him dearly every day but this is a gentle reminder that he will always be with me...one more way to honor his presence in my home!
