Love Birds


Arts In RI team members decided to creatively challenge one another to embrace the season of love with Valentine themed products. Between now and Valentine's Day we will share some of these "lovely" designs with you here on our blog. Let us know how you feel about our art by leaving a comment. Everyone who leaves a comment will be entered into a random drawing for an Arts In RI gift basket featuring goodies from many of our shops. (one entry per person per post. In other words you can enter once every time we post a new product!!!) Be sure to check back on the blog on Valentine's Day as we will announce the winner that day. Entries will be accepted until midnight February 13th.

Our next item is this original collage created by Layla of Dollface Design . Layla says of her collage: "This collage is printed on mottled, antique ledger paper from the late 1800's, featuring a pair of love birds surrounded by a bevy of beautiful flowers and an ornate Victorian tintype frame. This piece is part of my vintage paper series which is experimental printing on a variety of delicate, antique substrates. Printing directly onto the old paper really gives the piece a beautifully muted palette and a true sense of authenticity. The birds are Victorian scraps from an old Victorian scrapbook and the paper is late 1800's ledger paper. The roses and frame are bits and pieces from old Victorian postcards and tintype photos. You can check out other works from this series in my shop, they look lovely framed as a set."

Let Layla know what you think of her Love Birds here in the comments and you will be entered to win a basket full of handmade goodness created by the members of arts in RI.

    I love that this design is actually printed on to vintage paper. It gives the image a beautiful depth and texture, not to mention a sense of history.
