My favourite photo app - A Beautiful Mess

photo from A Beautiful Mess

When I heard Elsie and Emma from A Beautiful Mess created a photo app I instantly knew that I was gonna love it! When the app came out I downloaded it immediately and started to discover all the fun features. This is the best photo editing app I found so far. 

The filters are beautiful and there are some fun borders and doodles, some ready made words and you can write your own message too. I'm sure there are similar apps out there, but this is really my cup of tea. I love the way I can customize my photos and the changes really make them pop!

I love taking photos of my daughter, but it's very rare that I have a good photo of myself, because I really don't like the way I look in photos. Why I'm very grateful for this app is that the filters and cute little changes make me feel like I look better in the photos. Finally!

The newest originals

Finally the latest originals are available on my website. It took me quite long to get this done with all this beautiful sunshine we have been getting these days. We spent loads of time in the park. We were loving it! : ) I guess I'm a bit over excited, but here in the UK this is a big thing to have more days so so lovely in a row. And it's already gone. Hello, cold wind.

I love the photos of these little originals, they turned out so bright. I'm thinking to redo all my photos again on my website now. I wish I had the time though.

Here they are:

The last photo shows the side as well, so that you can imagine it better. I love these little paintings. Recently I painted on bigger canvases before I came back to these 5x7" ones, and realized that I enjoy these the most. They are the perfect size for some reason. And whenever I paint on these small canvases in 90% the painting comes out pretty straight away. I love that when the inspiration comes, no thinking required, my hand is moving and voila, I'm ready with a new little art. I love that the girls come out always a bit different but I feel like my style is recognizable. 

I also love sending these little messages to you all. It means so much to me creating these little paintings. I just hope you all love them as much as I do. : )

I feel a bit disheartened today. I made the brave step this morning, sent an inquiry for a pretty little shop where I wanted to sell my matted prints and the lady replied me in minutes that my work was not right for them. That shop is the kind of shop I would like to have. The style of their products, all those pretty colours... I really wanted to be part of that shop. The next one on my list was not this close to my heart. So right now I'm not sure whether to write them or not.

I would be so glad to talk to my customers. I would love to know what you all think of my work. What do you like in my art? Is there anything you don't like? Please give me some feedback. : )
Thank you!
