It truly is a dandy! Dandelions are bright like the beautiful June sun. Some see a weed, but I see spring bee food, herbal remedy, food and drink, and wishes! I see nature’s pop up garden, art, and a magic created by friendship. Creative vision which makes me feel more connected to those I love and admire. Simple things that change our lives in huge ways and taps into the soul just by being mindfully present.
Welcome to our June edition of When Fashion and Nature Collide. On the third Wednesday of each month, we will post a new collaborative edition. You will see art, beautiful fashion and accessories styled by Dominique from 3C Style, botanicals, critters, and beautiful art by Darren from the Arty Plantsman, and botanicals, critters and art from me Lisa@Lismore Paper. Be sure to check out each blog for the full edition. This month offers AMAZING foodie creation, art, and fashion! Check out our shop for the original fashion and accessories from all of our editions.
I wish I were able to make the trip to visit and create with Darren and Dominique in late May. Together they created pure magic with their collaborative styling and photography. Be sure to visit their posts for a real nature’s treat. A big thank you to both Darren and Dominique for making me feel like I was right there with them.
It was easy for me to find inspiration to create this dandelion wine watercolor set on an old invoice after seeing the work of Darren and Dominique. From the DIY handbag, the gorgeous outfit, and the dandelion wine photograph that captured my heart as soon as I set eyes on it. It was funny, when they were putting together the dandelion wine photograph, I was taking the dandelion and bee photograph. I like to think we were aligned in the moment.
Let’s Get Crafty! The craft beer, the show stopping staircase, Dominique’s style and Darren’s photography really made this a beautifully designed set. Creating small doodles based from a vintage drawing of hops and barley made the logo come together with the stars and type. Get Crafty home brew t-shirts and products are available now in our shop, Fashioned By Nature.
I could not resist the spark this apple blossom shoot by Darren and Dominique created. The food and drink style and photography is truly foodie magic. Then paired with flowers, and Dominique…it could not be better. Using a base of the same paper as the dandelion, an apple blossom was extracted and restored from an early 1800’s illustration along with an old magazine cover that was recolored, it made this paper come to life. You know me…I could not resist adding the bee.
Be sure to visit both Darren and Dominique for the full edition of this post. We will be taking a vacation in July, but will be back with another great edition on August 21st. Until then you can enjoy past editions here
Much love and hugs,
