Intres + Imagine Studio + I Like Pens

A rather eclectic bunch today - all three are completely different, yet all three are completely beautiful!


I am always intrigued by hand stitching, whether it is fine embroidery or gorgeous felt creations like these ones from

The Intres collection is made up of a series of impossible towers, castles, trees, brooches and fun toys, each one constructed with care and craftsmanship - have a peek:

Imagine Studio

Lyse Marion from
Imagine Studio has always Collaged. The never ending possibilities achieved from collaging digitally has given Lyse a new perspective and allows her continue pursue her undying need to produce lyrical, evocative and sometimes provocative images.

I find Lyse's work fascinating. Each image is worth a second (third, fourth...) glance to ensure you capture all the detail.

"The lyrical beauty of each piece is well worth your time to see. I hope that they can provide a renewed sense of quietude to your heart, mind and soul. So...let your spirit take flight in the beauty and awe of your own imagination."

I Like Pens

Friends of ours have recently moved to Paris, and it was because of them that I stumbled across this collection of works by Kate Seaward from
I like Pens. This 'Travels in Campervans' series partly shown below trips around the sites of Europe - oh, and I slipped in a 'Pop Up' of the Eiffel Tower because it was too gorgeous not too : )

Along-side being a talented illustrator Kate has also opened a fab retail store with friend and fellow illustrator
Gemma Correll. Named Cherry Cherry their store is stocked full with a whole heap of goodness from all their favourite crafters, designers and artists.
