Singapore artist Izziyana Suhaimi is simply an embroidery prodigy. She embellishes each of her delicate watercolour paintings with intricate embroidery details. As she states on her website, she is interested in the “craft-based techniques” and the “evidence of the hand and its time-consuming aspect, which runs counter to the instant gratification and mass-production centred age of today.” We love very much her work and hope it’ll inspire you too!
The internet (or maybe just our Pinterest?) seems to love never-ending summer culture pictures. If you’re from the frozen lands like us, you know how hard it can be to look at those when you’ve been going through several weeks of subzero temperatures. But hey, you don’t have to live close to the equator to get a little piece of paradise either. All you need is a little corner in your house, a hammock and tons of plants! xo
