So I stumbled across some Studio Vlogs on You Tube and I’ve been obsessed ever since. I’m not an artist , I’m not even good at drawing but I’ve been so inspired watching these artists what they can create. One artist in particular is a lady called Catherine (Katnipp) . Her artwork is amazing and I’ve already purchased a few things from her Etsy store. One of the many things she does is she makes and sells Enamel Pins.
Got me thinking for ages that I would love to design and sell my own enamel pins. All these different artists have their own style but I thought I would design my pins in relation to the industry that I’m in love with. So for the last week or so I’ve been playing about and I’ve come up with a design. I’ve figured out all my measurements etc and I’ve just sent my email off to a manufacturer so fingers crossed all is good with my design and it’s something that they will be able to create. My first step is complete and I’m excited for the next steps ahead.
If this pin works then I’m definitely going to put my head together and design more beauty inspired enamel pins – what pins would you like to see?
I’m also thinking about creating sticker sheets for those planner lovers out there, but one step at a time, hey!
I’m not going to show you my completed , fully illustrated design yet as it may not be approved but heres a sneak peak of my manual drawing when I drew it to size to check the measurements. ( it’s not the final design though 😉) Hope you like it!!!!
Its been a while since I’ve been on my WordPress site , reading back on my old post about the competitions that I won is great and a lovely thing to look back on.
Blogs are a great way of documenting things that interest you as well as others that have an interest in the same things can read your blogs as well. My passion is everything Beauty!! So….. that’s what I’m going to start blogging about as that’s what’s in my blood.
I will aim to Blog as often as I can, to start with I cant make promises or commitments as I work full time then do my beauty along side my shift work so at times I can be really busy trying to juggle two jobs alongside my social and home life so I will be here as often as I can. I don’t want to come on here and throw something together halfheartedly but really want to put some thought into it.
** Below is a picture of my nails currently – these are my natural nails, I wear The Gel Bottles BIAB over my natural nails, then colour is Ink Londons iLac i128 Duck Egg then on my ring finger is my first go at a Tartan Nail. What do you think? ?
I never used to be one to enter competitions as I bet like most people the thought is “I will never win”. But maybe what they say that the power of positive thinking must actually work. Over the last few months I’ve entered competitions and I’ve actually won. I feel like I’m on a winning streak. Whilst writing this I thought I hope this doesnt come across as boasting but just thought this would be a great way of documenting my wins.
Back in August I entered a competition with Scratch Magazine , wasn’t even notified that I won until I received this package courtesy of Salon Systems consisting of some lashes, marvel brow power palette, wax and some nail lux.
Another competition I won with Scratch magazine was in July where I won the complete collection of Faby Joy polishes. A few months previous I did win some Mavala Nail Products but thought that was just a one off so didn’t even take a picture of that. Goes to say though that entering competitions with Scratch magazine is well worth it .
I entered a Facebook group competition with a set of nails I did on my sister and I won that as well, I couldn’t believe it, got myself a couple of packs of new nail glitters as a result.
Most recently I entered a competition on Facebook with We Heart Nails, it was a competition to name their 3 new glitters and the winner would receive the glitters, well guess what I couldn’t believe it but I won that as well, I wasn’t even going to enter as didn’t think I was creative enough to come up with a good names but I did, “Angels Halo” “Oceans Paradise” and “Rich Ruby”.
So, Ive never blogged before, but thought I would try and give it a go. My passion is everything Beauty and I thought I could share some of my thoughts, passions, loves and interest of anything Beauty here.
