I recently created this over-the-top gold backdrop for the Nashville Humane Association'sDinner with your Dog night, hosted by the country beauty queen, Kellie Pickler!
Though time intensive, the backdrop was super easy. All you need is gold foil tissue paper (I got this at Michael's in their wrapping aisle), muslin or other lightweight fabric, a hot glue gun and scissors! I cut my tissue paper in strips 4" high and fringed them with the scissors. Then, using the hot glue gun, start from the bottom and work your way up, layering the fringe. That's it!
Tec and I are pulling a shoot together and will be using the images above as inspiration. Doesn't it make you want spend the day sunbathing on a dock? Oh well; we've got a few more moths to wait for that here in Nashville. But I tell you what--spring can't come soon enough for this ol' gal.
And yep, I know this is the second post in a row that I've wished it wasn't winter. Obviously this is something I'm working through...
I thought I'd start out twenty twelve and end this week with some beautiful images Tec shot for Kinfolk's second volume, which came out a few weeks ago. If you haven't seen the hard copy yet, do yourself a favor and pick one up; you'll be inspired by page after page of simple settings, easy gatherings and fulfilling food.
This shoot, entitled "Winter's Rest" was written by Elise of Pennyweight, styled by myself and Elise, and shot by Tec.
