Studio Photos Sneak Peek

A week or so ago, talented photographer (and also a former Nashvillian) Olivia Rae James dropped by the studio for a photography session. I can’t say what’s in the works just yet, but I couldn’t resist sharing a couple of her amazing photos.


So wonderful!

Be sure to check out her blog as well. I particularly love her Charleston, I Love You posts.

DIY Event Recap: Watercolor Envelope Liners

INK MEETS PAPER kicked off December 2012 with a DIY event hosted by SpaceCraft Studios as part of the first-ever Avondale Holiday Market. Participants picked out a set of our letterpress holiday cards and then painted envelope liners with watercolors. In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it was nice to take a moment and create.

This particular project is nice because it works for all ages and skill levels (perfect for a drop-in crafting event). I love how creative everyone was with painting their liners. There were definitely some lucky recipients for those cards. To see the rest of the photos from the event, check out the INK MEETS PAPER Facebook page.

Workshop Recap: Handprinting on Fabric

I’m a bit behind in posting a recap of the handprinting workshop I led as part of the North Charleston Cultural Arts Department’s open studio series; however, better late than never, right?

The class was so much fun, and we used a variety of printing techniques– from handmade stamps to the freezer paper stencil method– to customize a set of cotton dish towels. See more workshop photos on our Facebook page and on the North Charleston’s Flickr album.
