Summer Nail Stickers

Kara Endres, breakfast, palm leaf, elephant, chevron, color gradientI had the chance to test out these cute nail stickers from Zazzle. They were kind enough to send over four designs (one of which I designed) and the first one I just had to try were the breakfast stickers. I mean, it’s mini eggs, bacon and toast—how adorable! They have a custom option where you can upload your own design and have that printed, so I chose my palm leaf print. — Links to all the designs shown are below.

The Boho Nook // Decor Style

Pinterest is my favorite place to find inspiration for everything from style and decor to illustration ideas. I found this photo and instantly fell in love with the clean lines and minimal style. The pop of teal and bold stripes really got my attention. I decided to illustrate this outdoor living space, but to put a bohemian spin on it; as if it was the perfect little boho nook to spend the afternoon.

I found a few pieces to really bring this scene to life:

This was a fun project I got to work on with Caseable: customizing a bag using my own artwork! I’ve been loving the palm leaf print lately and created a watercolor painting to use on this bag (which is now available as a print in my shop). I wanted to keep it fun, bright and crazy so I went with a bold black and white stripe on the back… with a little flamingo hiding on the corner (also in my shop). I chose the Macbook Pro 15 laptop bag from Caseable’s website to use as a clutch. They have more options like iPhone and tablet covers, which you can design yourself or choose from a variety of pre-made options designed by artists.
