DIY CANDY: Yesterday I came accross the work of Puur Anders, a designer and stylist from the Netherlands, over at Poppytalk. Poppytalk is a Canadian design blog with a focus on handmade beauties. You can find these beautiful necklaces, brooches and some papergoods, made of fabric printed with an old photograph, in their Shop. Puur Anders named the collection “Hidden Memories”, everything is handmade by her. What a beautiful way to keep your memories close to your heart. Here you can find her Etsy, Blog, Pinterest and Facebook.
Since I discovered Maurizio Anzeri‘s work a while ago, I notice an increasing frequency of embroidered projects in the net. Here are some projects the young and upcoming photographer Ausra Osipaviciute did in collaboration with Milda Cergelyte (fashion design) and Gintare Pasakarnyte who did the needlework.
I’m a big fan of letterpress! We all may already know the amazing Studio on Fire. They recently printed this Whimsically Elegant Wedding Invitation designed by Scott Pfeiffer. Scott has also designed the invitations for his own wedding a few years ago – printed by the Fire Guys – of course.
I recently discoverd The Hungry Workshop, a Melbourne based letterpress studio. They print their own projects, and collaborate on projects with other creative people and agencies. These guys designed this beautiful Art Nouveau wedding invitation. Take a look at their great Valentine’s Day cards you can shop here.
