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!

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.

Ocean Art and an announcement

5 x 7 Sea Paper

There’s something about water that draws us in and fascinates us. There are approximately 332.5 million cubic miles of water on Earth. Water covers more than 70 percent of Earth’s surface. As humans we long to find peace and tranquility. So where do we usually go, to the water. It might be as simple as a fountain in the garden, exploring the sea with an air tank and fins, a boat ride, or a beach vacation. For me, the water has always brought a great sense of peace to my soul. I love to learn about the creatures of the sea, Great Lakes, and our little ponds and streams. The life beneath the surface of the water is incredible.

I am so excited about the When Fashion and Nature Collide  August Edition (the link will take you to our July edition). You will see so many beautiful photos and art. This edition takes us to the Ocean on Wednesday, August 15th. In honor of our upcoming edition, I have created paper using vintage paper and drawings. The base is made of a ships cargo log and compass. There are octopus arms, whale, pink coral, and little fish. This is set as a  5 x 7 inch print, but can be resized. Click on the picture to save to your device. It looks great in an 8 x 10 frame. I just added it to my own nautical room. For personal use only.

I also want to share some news! Lismore Paper has gone THREADLESS! Take an adventure with me. I am taking my pen and ink doodles to t-shirts and accessories for Men, Women, and Children. At any time you can click on the Shop Lismore Paper link at the top or side bar for t-shirts, accessories, and digital paper. I will be adding more each week and if there is something you would like to see, please let me know 🙂

 

 

Much love and a happy Sunday!
