take a good look at this artwork…what do you think it is?

what you are seeing is the work of visual artist rosemarie fiore, who creates collage-like images by exploding and containing live fireworks to get these wild bursts of saturated color.

Post image for mural mural on the wall

this might be one of the coolest things i’ve ever seen.

inspired by a painting they found on ebay and paint by numbers artwork, scott and cheryl white turned their blank wall into mural art.  to do this they made a color transparency of the painting, and using a projector, traced the image onto the wall with pencil.  they then created a chart of all the colors and assigned them numbers, and got to work painting! it took them eight months to complete this masterpiece but imagine how much fun you’d have doing it! read more to see some awesome photos of the white’s wall before and after.

I got to do this in school, when I had my design chosen to be painted as a mural... I sketched it onto acetate, projected it, traced it and painted it! Such a fun job to do! (as long as you have a great playlist to paint to!)

I love this!!! I am so gonna do this when i get my own place! :D

i was looking around online last week for instructions on tie-dying easter eggs- as in this kind of tie-dye:

instead i found this.  i’ve never seen this before… apparently silk ties have another purpose- they can be used to create amazingly beautiful easter eggs! i found a great tutorial on our best bites that walks you through the process.

Hey there! Lana @ Store #827. I actually just did this the other night with my boyfriend! They turned out awesome. I left my blog link if you want to check out the pictures! xoxoxoxo

boo hoo. I tried this, even followed the directions (shocking) my egg did not come out strong and clear like the ones in the pictures. I wonder what the variables are and how consistant the results are? I did make a different egg, continuing to make things out of catalogue pages. http://www.flickr.com/photos/chloe-and-ivan/4484532906/ I like the idea of the dye transfer, but it looks like the process needs some study. Thanks for sharing & inspiring!

Post image for Spring Trend Boyfriend Pants

The popularity of the Boyfriend Pant has just risen. The Spring/Summer 2010 runway trends(thanks Chloe, thanks Balmain, and THANK YOU Balenciaga)has brought a cool vibe to the much loved – “throw on your boyfriend pants and grab a carton of milk morning scenario”

The best way to wear this look is to roll up the cuffs just a little over your ankles, pair with sandals or wedges.Wear pretty tops to avoid looking to ‘Boy’ and layer your jewelry.

Cropped leathers and denim jackets also work a wonder on this look too!

Androgynous dressing is a look to inhabit, and I’m sure you can take this trend into Fall too.

We have just launched a Boyfriend Pant shop of all our amazing styles we have at the moment.

 

Go take a look inside our Boyfriend Pant shop

free people is my favorite THING at the moment. i say thing, because its more than a shop, its a hmmm.. state of mind perhaps? just wondering, when is this state of mind also available in europe? i know that we can shop via internet, which is great of course, but also having a real place would be even more awesome.

loving this look!

Post image for we have a winner…

thanks to everyone who posted a comment telling us what color of the rainbow you are!

most of you have got the blues… blue had the most responses by far, followed by purple and green.

our winner, chosen at random, is leslie from ohio – who said she was “definitely green.” congrats leslie!

Post image for a take away film: uganda

La Blogotheque / Invisible Children from INVISIBLE CHILDREN on Vimeo.

stuff like this gives me chills…

invisible children and la blogotheque are taking the polyphonic spree, yeasayer and lykke li to uganda, where they will document a series of take away shows mixed with interviews and local events.  i love everything la blogotheque does and i especially love seeing musicians use their talent and fame to bring attention to important causes like this.  the documentary will be sold by invisible children to raise money for the cause – if you aren’t familiar with it, check out their website: invisiblechildren.com.

more info on the take away film can be found here: takeawayfilmuganda.com

Post image for what song was #1 when you were born?

another fp girl asked this the other day and a bunch of us looked it up – the results were pretty funny.  some of our songs were pink floyd’s “another brick in the wall,” “up where we belong” by joe cocker & jennifer warner and “careless whisper” by wham :)

so tell me… what was the number one song when you were born?

Post image for tunesday: angus & julia stone

i had never heard of angus & julia stone until last week, when fp jemma told me about them.  i’m so glad she did because their music is beautiful and they also happen to have a new album coming out today called down the way! angus and julia are brother and sister and their music is as light and airy as these photos of them…listening to it feels like a bike ride on a summer day or dangling your legs off the end of a pier looking out at a sparkling lake. her voice has a similar quality to joanna newsom and his is its perfect complement – very soothing and understated.  their music is simple and sweet, and a perfect soundtrack for spring and summer. their video for “mango tree” captures this essence to a t – watch:

i also love this collage from their deluxe edition album packaging that uses photos from their family albums. now listen to some of their songs below and tell me what you think!
