I did it you guys. I stopped Googling, second guessing, and putting off this little idea of mine and hit ‘publish.’ I feel like I’ve almost teased my own shop too much and if I did I’m so sorry! Let’s just say my engineering, nor chemistry classes walked me through how to create an online fine art printshop. Ask me to write a mean Excel equation and I’m your lady. But online business? Oy. I struggle.
Still the day is here and I’m officially ‘open.’
I was nervous to only have a couple of prints in the shop as I had dreamed of much more… but these are the ones I have in my own home. And I didn’t want to sell something I wouldn’t put up on my own walls. So the shop is small… but well used!
moody, feminine roses
Easily my favorite print of the shop.
I’ve a big fan of weaving in feminine pieces into our home and quite frankly if I could somehow get one in every room I totally would! (I think L may start to veto me at some point though.) It’s just enough moody. And still feminine that it can be a statement piece like I’ve created or a fun addition to a work space.
crisp, clean trees
Honestly I didn’t dream of this on my walls and I like to call it my happy coincidence. L was moving in with me and I was trying to tone down play the pink in my home and decided this would do the trick. Turns out I discovered that the clean lines and simplicity of the photo, made it almost as agreeable as the roses. (Sorry I can’t help it but the roses are still my favorite!)
Where I have a wall that is cluttered this is the print I turn towards. It’s tranquil details make the it the cherry on top for what would be a lack luster corner.
Bonus – no pink and semi manly. Also bonus – looks really good with pink.
I decided to go with fine art paper for my shop rather than canvas prints. I like the traditional and more matte look of prints. Your own print will come wrapped in protective plastic and I would suggest keeping it in it until you find a place for it on the wall or a frame for it. (I didn’t follow this advice for my own and it became quite scratched.)
I hope you enjoy and let me know if you have any questions!
