Fave 13 of 2013

Before I run through the list of my favorite projects of 2013, I’d like to take a moment to thank you all for your support of my work. Whether you’ve chosen to work with me for your printed goods or decorative painting needs; referred Love Paper Paint to your friends, family and colleagues; or happened upon what I do through Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook…your involvement in Love Paper Paint keeps this lifelong passion of mine alive and thriving. I am encouraged and inspired by your kind comments, likes and shares…and I appreciate each and every one. For the past 13 years that I have been doing this work – despite ever-changing trends, technological shifts, and the social media evolution (yep, when I first started my business, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest did not exist and not many people were blogging) – one thing has remained constant and is my primary focus: I design and paint…for a living. This work that I do is a huge part of my life and is (hopefully) what I’m known for. Being able to do what I love every day makes me happy and grateful. Without this blog-site, my Instagram feed or Facebook page, I would still be a professional designer and painter, just as I have been since 2000. While I am not defined by social media or reliant on it to get work as a creative, it has given my work a bit more reach and allowed me to share my projects more quickly and to a wider audience. I may not have a lot of “followers” on any particular social media outlet, but I am thankful to have ones who are engaged and active…and I appreciate the feedback and participation I get from those of you who support my work. Like I said last year during my 2012 “fave” recap, “I know with all the online printing sites, DIY blogs, Pinterest, and Etsy…there are a lot of alternatives and options at your finger tips for everything from creating paper goods to decorative painting ideas. So I appreciate the value you place on my work when you support artisans, design professionals, and licensed contractors like me.” Again, I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. And here they are, my Favorite 13 Projects for Paper and Paint of 2013. In a nutshell: orange was the new black; my black and gold obsession continues; trees were a popular, yet timeless theme; decorative painting was taken outdoors (and under a huge inflatable castle); and there were A LOT of broken bones. I’m so lucky to have had such an interesting 2013 and I’m looking forward to another wonderfully unique year of projects!  Happy New Year! PAPER: 1. A travel-themed wedding (for the cutest couple ever), from a luggage tag save the date to an airline ticket-sized invitation. 2. These custom vintage comic book invitations never get old. I created these for my son’s 3rd birthday in 2007 and still get orders/requests for them even now. 3. My hand-painted brushstroke paper makes a stunning embellishment for invitations. (Wedding by Champagne Taste) 4. Bold and bright, but stunning, orange was the hot color for many wedding ensembles this year. And this one uses my hand-painted brushstroke paper as well.  (Wedding by Champagne Taste) 5. The format was simple, but the result was as decadent as the party theme. A Marie Antoinette inspired masquerade party. (Party by Events by Design) 6. It was all about that sparkly rhinestone buckle for this ensemble. This wedding was pure gorgeousness. And I got to assist the event designer and actually worked at...
