7 Little Wonders

It was so much fun being a bridesmaid from the hens night to getting ready together in matching kimonos, it was an honour to be apart of their special day.

[DIY] Glitter Gift Wrap



Equipment & Materials you will need:
1. A roll of paper
2. Glitter 
3. Ribbon
4. Sticky Tape
5. Glue
STEP BY STEP
1. Make a circle with the glue on the paper.
2. Sprinkle the glitter over the circle of glue.
3. Shake off the excess of glitter (keep aside to reuse).
4. Repeat randomly all over the roll of paper.

 Wrap your gifts using the sticky tape and pretty ribbon!

For gift tags I bought silver glitter swing tags to match the glitter spots.
However you could easily make these with some card and the same glitter you used for the paper.
Simply attach them to your gifts with some metallic thread.

I loved making this paper, there was glitter everywhere for a while (no one seemed to mind- it was Christmas!) Even though this was my Christmas paper this year, it's not a traditional colour scheme or pattern so you can use it for presents all year round! It doesn't have to just be gift wrap either- you could use it for anything, from a simple table runner to covering your books, journals and diaries. 
Oh the possibilities!

Love

[Smokin' Hot Babes] by Shama Heylen-Silvia


Sharma Heylen-Silvia opened her 'Smokin Hot Babes' exhibition at Hatch in Carillon City last month and if you haven't checked it out yet there is still time- but only a couple of weeks to go!
Sharma presented a series of rainbow water-colour 'babes' who each have their own personalities and specialise in a sport which are comically described in the captions below each piece. 
The colours of Sharma's work complimented the new bright summer colours of the clothing stocked in Hatch which served as the perfect backdrop for the Exhibition. On the opening night guests were treated to pink lemonade, fruit sticks and home-made fruity icy poles.


On the lead up to the 'Smokin Hot Babes' exhibition I was asked by Perth Fashion Festival to collaborate on an interview with Sharma at her beach side apartment in Cottesloe. Sharma welcomed us into her super-cool-surf-chic-arty-boho-skater-girl-gypsy home where she gave us a sneak peak of some of the works for her upcoming exhibition and a few other things she has in the works.
