Currently: Art in Windows display- complete!

Well guys here it is! On Friday I set up my display for the Art in Windows. I felt nervous and excited all in one. Selling online is quite a different way of putting yourself out there, compared to seeing peoples reactions. The set of drawers above is something I REALLY want- imagine it in my studio! My display was designed around the idea of a studio and the environment I love to work in. The above image has my art supplies spilling out of the drawers with framed art on top.

I made little postcards that have all my contact details and a pretty pattern on top. Above the desk area is a visionboard of all my photography and inspirations. I handmade all of the bunting too!

On the desk is a clearfile of art prints and them spilling onto the desk. In the typewriter I wrote a blurb about myself…love this!

Next to the set of drawers are stacked vintage suitcases with a display of the greeting cards. And below are some cushions I added doilies to. These turned out sooooo well and fit in perfectly with the theme of my display! Im so SO pleased with outcome and couldn’t have done it without the help of the amazing girls instore. This is such an exciting opportunity and fingers crossed the display wins a prize! If you wouldnt mind voting for my display here, I will love y’all forever! Thanks for all the encouragement :D xo Bec

Currently: Art in Window display

Just a quick update about what Im currently working on for Clouds of Colour! Every year Nelson holds an Arts Festival where local artists and musicians showcase their work and a wide range of theatre, dance, music, workshops and film is put on. This year I will be taking part in what is called Art in Windows where local stores showcase a local artist and let them put together a display in the shopfront window. It is a really amazing opportunity to get your art out into the community. I am soooo excited to have been chosen! So this week im busy organising, printing and getting together my display. Keep an eye out for the final result photos! xo Bec
