When Fashion and Nature Collide -Feline Good

Feline Good

Feline couture is feline good! Cats flourish at being the ruler of their domain. Who cannot relate to being King or Queen of their castle. The power of animal fashion is everywhere in pattern. It has purred its way into print and our hearts. Cats have been featured on runways for years as cat motifs have ruled many fashion lines. The cat inspiration hit us and we fell in love with many famous cats, wearables, and products.

Welcome to our November 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, flowers and beautiful art by Darren from the Arty Plantsman, and original art from me Lisa@Lismore Paper. Soon we will be opening a shop on Threadless which offers our products under the Fashioned By Nature Label. Crossing our paws it will open December 1st just in time for Christmas! If you missed the t-shirt post, click here.

So what’s all the purring about…

GARFIELD

I am partial to this feline. I remember receiving a stuffed toy in the 2nd grade and cherishing it for years. A little secret, I still have it. Creating art inspired by this famous cat was fun. Watercolor and digital enhancement made this #eyeCatching piece a bit art deco. I completed a few different versions. I enjoy adding eyelashes to everything I can, as you can see in the first photo above. Darren’s flower the Calochortus barbatus hit it on the mark, it’s a beauty. Dominique’s style from the cat print shirt and perfect complimenting hat mimic Garfield. Doesn’t she look gorgeous!

CHESHIRE CAT

The Cheshire Cat is a fictional cat popularized by Lewis Carroll in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This cat is mostly remembered for the wicked smile that I just love. The incredibly witty character has the most wonderful quotes. My favorite quote, “Every adventure requires a first step.”

Dominique looks beautiful and the colors match this Cheshire Cat perfectly…look at those cattails! Darren’s flower looks like a wonderland creation, I love the bell shape. For the quote art, I layered paper and you can see Dominique’s colors have been placed on top then blended into the paper. The eyes are layers of water color splotches with colored pencil on top and the smile was created using the technique of dropping water onto the paper in a pattern then letting the color fill in. I scanned at high quality, then added the pupils and shadows digitally along with the lettering.

A T-Shirt Teaser – Fashioned By Nature

Express Yourself

It is the ultimate of casual attire. They started out as undershirts for the boys in the military. In the 1950’s after Marlon Brando wore one in A Streetcar Named Desire, the t-shirt finally achieved status as fashionable outerwear garment, and ever since, they have grown wild in popularity. Everyone has t-shirts worldwide. They are simple, comfortable, and easy to wash after a days work or play. The best part they can make a statement about who you are and what you love, support or believe in.

I am so excited to announce that Dominique from 3C Style, Darren from the Arty Plantsman and myself will be launching a new shop, Fashioned By Nature, on Threadless.

Being Thankful – Print & Tag

Thanksgiving Wreath ThankfulAt times life can really be trying. For most, we have to plan our time with family and friends, save for the things we need and want, and have many responsibilities to tend to (food, a roof over our head, and electricity). It’s not easy to do this day in and day out. But these things, I am thankful for. From these we learn responsibility, lessons, love, and truly what is important. Sometimes we struggle and other times we look around and realize our accomplishments.

For those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving on the 22nd take the time to tell the ones you love that you are thankful for their love and friendship. For all of you reading, I am thankful for you. Thank you for enriching my life, sharing your stories, and allowing me to learn and grow. I appreciate you.

Please feel free to use these graphics for personal use. Click on the image to save to your device. The Thankful wreath graphic 8″x10″ can be used for cards or printable. The graphic below is a tag 2″x3.5″ to tie onto a package or for placement on the Thanksgiving table.

Tag - So very Thankful for you 2inch x 3.5inch tag

Happy Thanksgiving!

Much love,

Lisa

 

Vintage Santa Print

A Merry Christmas Santa 8 x 10

I know it’s not time yet. We haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving here in the States, but we are close. This year, I am just chomping at the bit to put some of my decorations out. Usually, I decorate the day after Thanksgiving. I don’t know if it is all the Hallmark movies, or the hiking in the snow, but I am ready to embrace the season.

I created the image above for a frame that I change the art out for the season. I am sharing this 8×10 Santa print for personal use. Click on the image to save to your device.

Are you preparing to decorate for the holidays?

Have a wonderful weekend and happy decorating!

Much love,

Lisa

We are all Fashioned by Nature

I am so excited about this project! We will continue to bring you amazing flowers, fashion, and art…we are all Fashioned by Nature!
I will miss my Michigan sister dearly, check out her amazing apiary page http://www.instagram.com/indigo_acres_apiary/ Much love, Lisa

Some of you already know it. In my youth, I worked in the fashion industry, then in theater and then in front of and behind the cameras for television and film productions. At the age of 24, a milestone happened in my life. Not long after I gave up everything. I started again from scratch. I went back to university and five years later became a science journalist, a job I’ve been doing for 20 years now. Over the past two years, I’ve added a string to my bow by becoming a fashion and style blogger. It’s a bit of a homecoming, but with the added experience of many years of intellectual rigour and work ethic. Why do I tell you part of my journey? Simply to illustrate that our lives are not a long calm river. There is always astir, some splashing. It’s normal. Just like the ecosystems that work…

Clip Art

Apricot

The world of clip art has endless possibilities for creativity. Invitations, greeting cards, wall art, transfers, it’s limitless. Some of the best works come from the 1800’s public domain. I have been collecting some damaged pieces, actually I am like a chipmunk collecting a feast for winter. Anyone who lives in a snowbelt area can understand why :)It’s always incredibly rewarding to make something old and unusable into something new again.

I hope to be changing up my shop to include some of these pieces. I am adding commercial clipart so that others can use these in their own art. If you are a crafter or artist looking for unique clipart please feel free to message me. Or need a blog logo, I’d love to help you create something you are looking for.

Be on the look out for freebies here. Please feel free to click on the image above and save it to your device. Looks great on recipe cards, or as a special botanical piece

Much love,

Lisa
