Notion Thirteen


My cousin introduced me to the work of Franz Kline. It was from there, after Googling him and viewing numerous pieces that I was inspired to create some art along those lines.  It is somewhat of a spin-off with a twist. I thought to make use of my wedding album as well. Rather than just storing it away, I placed it on our dresser in our bedroom with a box stacked on top. It added some height to the mercury glass vase I purchased at Homesense. I quite like the layered and eclectic effect!

My husband and I,  at our engagement photo shoot. I had decided on the theme of an English dock worker meeting a girl in a cloud-like dress. It was a lot of fun and most of the shots were taken in downtown Toronto. My dress is Max Azria, I adore his creations!

Notion Eleven

blog22A couple of months ago I went all over town to various thrift stores and questionable warehouses filled with discarded junk.  I was able to find some treasures hidden in the nooks and crannies of the unknown; eight frames with interesting textures and patterns! I then painted all of them white and created a wall grouping for my dining room. The chipped red antique oil can was something given to me by my parents, which I am now using as a centerpiece.
