introducing: rosegolden


Today I am very pleased to announce a new project that Erin of Atlantic Treefox and I have been working on: rosegolden. I've always really loved Erin's photographs and her large scale posters (this one hangs above my bed), and a little while ago she proposed that we collaborate on a poster design. We decided to make posters of our flower photos. Each one will feature delicately hand-painted gold leaf touches, all done by Erin, for a little bit of subtle shimmer.

I love working with Erin -- as some of you know, we maintain dreamcats together, although these days it's mostly Erin who keeps it going.

The posters are available now at the rosegolden shop. We hope you like them!

ETA: Whoops! As of late August, we have decided to shut down the shop. Thanks for your interest, though.















REPLIES

Heba: Thanks for that!

michael ann: That's great! I'm happy to hear that.

Dianne: Aw, glad you like it.

jen: Thanks, and do it! I bet yours would be awesome. I'm thinking next time of making a two-tone one! Oooh.

Ann Marie: Thanks!

EvaForeva: This one is a little sloppy for me to wear in public so maybe once I've completed a better version... thanks!

multicolourred: I hope you do it! So fun.

arounna: Thanks, lady!

julie @ hazel and hunter: Oh hey, thanks!

Christy: Oh yes! Sewing isn't terribly difficult (the basics, at least -- I am not a pro!), and it's so satisfying.

Caitlin Rose: Thank you!

P R I M O E Z A: Thank you, and yes! It's the best. Especially when the supplies were so inexpensive.

in dreams: You can sew at The Workroom for $7/hour... it's a pretty good option! I love air drying things too. It reminds me of being a little kid since everything wound up on the clothesline in summer.

Sarah: I wish I had more to share. It's so time-consuming, sadly.

amanda jane: Thank you!

thea: Ha! I did have to spend more time cleaning up than working on this project... sigh.

alice heinz: Thank you! Yes, you should! They're really easy to make.

Lolo: I do really like them! I think I have two or three of them, and the patterns in them are pretty useful. I like the conversational tone and the illustrations a lot.

    hi, anabela. i've gotten so many inspirations and ideas since finding your blog a few months back. your pinterest is lovely as well. one thing i don't understand is how you find the time to keep up with all of these blogs :) anyway, thanks again!

  35. 'like' is an understatement, I LOVE these. I'm going to save up for one, I'd like one of these posters in my cosy little writing study. I've spent far too much money on books lately alas, my funds have diminished. I wish I could just buy a poster now!

    How beautiful Anabela, the things you come up with are just so special.
