White Hot Technicolor

IMG_5490 I'm all for basics, but summer needs some color! I'm wearing white pieces to stay true to my personal style, and threw on a bright skirt for a fresh look. Finally, the studs on both the shoes and the bag are keeping it tough. I can feel my style evolving in a more minimal direction, but I think I'll always be that little 90's girl obsessed with Lisa Frank and rainbows.

Notice the paint marks on my hands? I'm working on a bunch of skateboards right now, and just finished one up tonight. I can't wait to share it with you! In my book, messy hands, are happy hands. Thanks for reading! x. Paige

ART_Custom Helix Pick Guard

IMG_1251 I get so excited whenever I get a commission for a new pick guard because they are so small that I can do them quickly, yet I still get to challenge myself with the placement of images and text on such an odd shape. This request was from a guitar-playing biologist, that wanted a gold guard with outline, his initials, and an (accurate) DNA helix. He gave me freedom with choosing the script for his initials, and I decided to use the Gibson guitar font because that's what model this guard will get screwed onto. I am excited to have done another guard and like the eye catching look of this one!

Also check out the video at the bottom of this post to watch the sketching and painting process of this piece!

"Ooh La La"

DSC_1243 Who says you should wear sweats during finals week? I decided to wear these bright pants today to cheer up my mood that is less than ideal while studying. I also added my Wildfox-inspired DIY tank that I hadn't worn yet! If you haven't seen that tutorial, you can check it out here!

Today's outfit track is a song I have always liked, "Ooh La La" by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals that I think had the perfect amount of punch to compliment today's look. Listen along below while you view!
