CHA Winter is finally underway in Anaheim! All the top companies in the crafting industry will be unveiling their new products for retailers, which means that as of today you can check out the BasicGrey website to see all of their fresh new goodies coming to a store near you! As always the BG lines are phenomenal, and i feel so lucky to get to work with such an amazing company. The line I worked on this time around is titled Porcelain, and my inspiration was heavy on the vintage... lace, birdcages, roses, brocades, and um, yes, my collection of porcelain tea cups of course! But i wanted to execute the look in a new way, so i ditched the computer and went back to my roots, cracking open the watercolors and a few paintbrushes. i love the unique organic effect that watercolor brings to the line, but making the watercolor work together with the patterns was a serious labor of love, so my fingers are crossed that everyone will enjoy the final result. either way, i feel lucky to have a job that lets me express my creativity so freely.
