One of my favorite things about my book is that in the back, there is art that you can tear out to hang on your wall. That’s right, every copy of the book comes with an instant gallery wall! The pages are perforated making it easy to remove the art AND the book still lays flat after all the pieces are removed. It’s seriously worth the cost of the book alone (not like I’m biased or anything, but for real, you can order it anywhere books are sold like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Book-A-Million, Indiebound, even your favorite local bookstore).
Today I thought it would be fun to show you a look inside at the art and to introduce you to the people I worked with to create such a special feature. Trust me, you’re going to want to follow these amazing women ASAP!
Meet the artists!
Megan Roy— you may remember Megan from the printables she’s made for The Crafted Life before (these daisies + beauty print). Her work is so colorful and playful that I know you’ll just love the pink and red chair piece she contributed!
Rachael McLean– if you’ve been a reader for a while, you may remember Rach from the Quarterly Collab (what’s up 2014). I’ve been such a fan of her work since we met during that project and it’s such a wonderful treat that she was able to make two floral pieces for the book. You can hang them together in a pair or separately!
Christine Herrin— let me know you something, this girl knows what’s up when it comes to hand lettering. She also makes some of the cutest stamps I’ve ever seen. Of course, I mean bien sûr, she contributed the hand lettered french piece!
Jordan Brantley— she’s the designer behind my current blog layout, founder of The Business Bar, and has even created some free printables for y’all in the past. For the book, she created the ultra fun blue fruit print as well as a color palette template you can use to paint on (can also be torn out of the book).
MJ Kocovski— the creative mind behind Good in Store, MJ is one of the kindest souls you’ll ever meet. And her product line is just as positive as her spirit! To help spread the love even further, she created the rainbow heart art piece.
Sarah Khandjian— my colorful DIY blogger soul sister. Sarah’s work is always adorable, and have I mentioned that I’m obsessed with her new earring line?! It was only right to have her create the rainbow piece for Hello Color.
Even though they don’t have work you can remove from the book, two additional contributing artists I’d like to mention are Mary Costa and Clare Corfield Carr. Mary took my headshots for the book and I don’t think I’ve ever felt prettier. Absolutely book her if you can. Clare created this amazing illustrated guide for hard to kill houseplants which is a section in the book you won’t want to miss! Her line work is seriously on point.
So that’s it! It was such a wonderful treat to be able to work with these women and I hope that you’ll love them and their work as much as I do. Don’t forget to pre-order your copy of Hello Color to get access to additional free art!
