I love stationery…. always have! And as I mentioned recently, Samantha Wills has been inspired by the old-fashioned charm of hand written notes. Her much-anticipated stationery collection was beautifully unveiled last week with a heavenly launch event I spied on Facebook. This new whimsical range of SW Stationery is a collaboration with Birdy & Me artist, Kelly Smith whose feminine and ethereal illustrations sit beautifully on the paper creations. What a fabulous pairing of creative ladies!
There are little postcards, gift cards and papers featuring dreamy girls with flowers and feathers in their hair. Flamboyant flamingos and peacocks are also beautifully incorporated. The stationery evokes a sense of artistic spirited bohemia that New York-based Samantha Wills embraces in all she does. Additions of twine and lace give this collection an earthy vintage edge. You can purchase some of the stunning collection for yourself online.
Artist, Kelly Smith is a very talented creator of girly illustrations and portraits. Recently she launched her book of contemporary fashion drawings and musings, Sticker Fashionista. This modern day paper-doll book is definitely on my Christmas list.
I’ve loved trawling through images of the sydney launch event…. A heady mix of vintage treasures, blooms, SW jewels, teacups and of course paper pretties. SW events are always beautifully styled and provide perfect inspiration for your own creative projects.
