As my eyes fell upon the Regal Rose Collection in the newest Belle Armoire, I immediately found myself straightening my shoulders and elongating my posture to mirror the imperial poses emanating from each page. Not only are the textures and patterns of the couture clothing absolutely stunning, but the deep plum and rich, creamy vanilla hues set the stage for ultimate aesthetic decadence.

 

“I am endlessly enthused by historical fashion, and elements of this are displayed throughout my designs.”

— Regal Rose designer, Gemma-Eve McDonald.

 

Regal Rose CollectionKnown for its exotic gardens and royal architecture, model Erna Gotyár poses amongst vines of floral amethyst in a secret enclave of Norwich, England.

A truly dramatic ensemble, Gemma-Eve’s creative collection commands attention all on its own, so when model Erna Gotyár tried several dresses on for size, a magical thing happened — the collision between beauty and Bohemian style blossom into an indulging visual delight, almost too alluring to peel your eyes away!

“The Regal Rose collection is so magical. I absolutely love fairy tales, and this nostalgic style brings me back to when I was a little girl. Gemma’s designs are stitched together with such amazing quality — they’re not just dresses, but pure unique art made with love,” says Erna.

Artist Insights: Remarkable New Art Journaling Tips from Teesha Moore

Teesha Moore Art Journal Pages

From faded jades and polka dot patterns to fluorescent pinks and swirly circles, Teesha Moore’s delectable art journal pages emit layers and layers of unique flair.  Each one is a distinct creation, brilliantly exceptional in color and design, and could not have been created without a courageous attitude.

One way Teesha remains fearless in her art journaling endeavors is by always experimenting with new ideas. Today she reveals how this secret ingredient adds a “bright” look with lettering in art journaling.

Check out the video:

 

Still yearning for more art journaling ideas? We’ve asked Teesha to share a couple quick tips for extra inspiration to get your creative wheels churning:

On art journal ambiance:

My absolute favorite place to journal is in any place with a lot of natural light.  My home art desk is directly below my skylight, so that’s always a great place, but outside is fabulous as well. My family has gone to great lengths lately to have spaces like this in our yard.  I prefer quieter places as opposed to more public spaces, but since my husband likes to journal in coffee shops, I join him with my headphones and go to town.

Advice to novice and expert art journalists alike:

The best advice I think would be to never get attached to your artwork.  The minute you do, you might freeze and quit exploring the “what ifs,” and it’s that wild abandon that makes journaling so much fun.  I also tell students, “When you feel like your journal page is finished, keep going. The second time you feel that it’s finished, keep going. By the third time, it probably is finished.”  People tend to stop too soon on a page.

***

Teesha’s appetite for art journaling is greater than an elephant’s! Her exquisite work has been featured in several Stampington & Co. publications, including one of our personal favorites Art Journaling Spring 2013:
