Friday Finds

This week’s finds….

I got a free gift….

The lovely people at bags of love sent me a free gift to try out their photo printing service. They sell every kind of photo gift you can imagine – canvas prints, bags, cushions and beddings. I will definitely be ordering more things in the future, I especially like the look of the Banksy style canvas prints. They also have a cool sister site where they sell images of London on canvas.

I opted for a set of three mini canvas prints as I had photos of a tree through the seasons that I right would make a great photo series.

It was hard to take a photo of a photo but hopefully you can get a sense of what they’re like. I’ve never printed a photo onto canvas before but it makes the images look more like a painting and gets rid of the need for a photo frame. I wish I’d taken the photos with my camera not my phone as they may have been sharper but I love the story and maybe I need to add a summer one to them soon!

I discovered …
I’m not going to pretend I have any clue about art but randomly reading an article about singer Christina Perri and her art inspired tattoo, I stumbled upon American artist Audrey Kawasaki.

She does her work on wood and her pictures focus on ethereal images of manga-like characters with a sense of heartbreak and an erotic twist. I just think they’re beautiful. Maybe one day I’ll be able to own one πŸ™‚

Have you got any finds to share?

  1. Locky you getting a free gift! I’ve never received a free gift yet I’ve been blogging for nearly a year!

    And I love love love Christina Perri at the mo, I’m so relieved that I got “jar of hearts” for 59p a few weeks ago (now it’s 99p!)

  2. No finds as of yet, but it’s still lunchtime and I have more poking about to do. So hopefully there will be a discovery. It would make a nice afternoon.
