Livin’ La Vida Boho

resin-pendants

Hi friends. How are you doing?

Over here, in my world, I am living ‘la vida boho’ (haha).

I am not really sure why and how it happened to me, but for some reason I realized that the so called bohemian style is what i want to dive into these days. So I went in, head first.

As I realized, the ocean of boho style is incredibly deep and beautiful… and mesmerizing… and soul-nourishing… and energy recharging. Oh the colors, the warmth, the cheerfulness, the richness of the textures, the comfort it brings… everything about it appeals to me IMMENSELY. Right now I am in the state where I just want to ‘bohemian-ize’ everything around me… (in case you come near, you’ve been warned)… . To outline the vision, I might as well call this year THE YEAR OF BOHO, building colorful happy shields whenever and wherever possible.

Anyways, learning how to channel this style, I have a few projects in works these days. I cannot wait to show them to you once they are fully finished (they even involve pictures I made… I know… what?). Until then, I thought I could just introduce to you a few parts of my fast growing boho collection…

These are just a few of my favorites. Seeing this, my heart is singing happy songs!

 
 

crochet-and-golden-beads

Somewhere along the way I got this idea of placing crocheted items on the pictures I make. And that idea has put me in a state of complete and utter THRILL :).

Well, yes, I realized that I had been searching for a different way to display my crocheted pieces for such a long time but did not really know how… and now I found the way. Yippee! The possibilities are endless and I see this as a very long and amazing journey for me. Will you join me? 🙂

 
 

decoupage-painting

To display my crocheted items, I’ve made a few backgrounds – painted and decoupaged. The background above is a decoupage (paper cutouts glued onto paper). This was my first try at this craft and I loved it!!! So amazing and relaxing!

Then the crocheted pieces and some charms join the game and the picture will soon be ready for you to see (stay tuned).

 
 

metal-charms

Speaking of charms… Hello my darling ones!! 🙂 You complete my life!

 
 

crochet-and-painting

This is a sneak peek of my other project. There are feathers and some really powerful words involved – this picture has a mission. Soon all will be revealed in more detail.

 
 

 colorful-feather-on-a-painting

Here’s a detail of the corner, I am still playing with different ideas and placements before it’s really finished. I was thinking – can you ever go over the top in the bohemian style? 🙂

Well, all in all, this is just the game that I need now. Gimme those embellishments!!! 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this little boho extravaganza. Will be back with more soon!

Take care!

With lots of love,
