If there’s one artist I could sing the praises of for hours and hours, it’s Resa Blatman and her lasercut paintings. She’s got all the right ingredients for me: lasercut canvasses, oil paint and glitter. Even her works on paper are a mixed media joy to behold.

This weeks colour inspiration is a more romantic colour palette and moodboard for Valentines, initiated by the limited edition collection from IKEA. I love some of the pastel tones in the IKEA BRÅKIG Collection and I’ve picked the Coral Pink because, well it’s just so pretty and perfect for Valentines week.
