Art via Etsy and Lara Casey Shop

Etsy and online sources are a great find for affordable art and I finally had the chance to order a few pieces when thinking about a gallery wall for my office.  I bought a collection of typography, abstract art, watercolor, and illustrations.   I don't have that much wall space in my office though since the Ikea Expedit takes up a big chunk of the largest wall, I have a large window, and three doors.  So, only two of my prints are actually hanging on the wall!

This "Love Never Fails" print is from online retailer Lara Casey Shop in gold foil lettering (8x10) hung inside a matted Target frame.  It's just leaning against a mirror on my sideboard.



The frame holding the picture of James is also from Target and the orb is from Home Goods (spray painted gold).

Laura Casey also designs these gold foil prints:


My 6x6 abstract print is from Prima Creative Studio and she has some awesome work in her Etsy shop.  My little piece isn't framed, just sitting in an acrylic stand (that came with a desk calendar) in my bookshelf next to a jack I spray painted black. 


But I also like it propped up with a candle sitting on a few books.  


A few of my other faves from her shop are: 


I found "Be Still" on Etsy at Morgan Smith Designs for just $6 in an 8x10 print that I cut out and pinned to my inspiration board.  


The gold lips are from Gilded Mint and the woman is from Yulia Puchko.


Gilded Mint makes a pretty cute flamingo print and the coral is cool.


The illustrated tiger is from Ella Cute and sits in a Crate and Barrel mirrored frame in our living room bookshelf.


I'm also a fan of her Cheetah, Fox, and Bird drawings.


And for the kitchen I found this fun "Without Ice Cream there would be darkness and chaos" on Etsy via Old English Company.  This is so true for me! :)  Sadly, this frame had been hanging on the wall empty since December!! 


They also make these: 


What sources do you like for art?  Are there any Etsy shops I need to check out?

  2. I LOVE all of those! What sort of search words do you put in? I have a lot from various Etsy artists, but sometimes I get overwhelmed in the search phase.

  14. Besides the orb, what else did you spray paint gold? What brand/color gold spray did you use? I am looking for the right one and you nailed it!
    Thanks

    1. I had the same question about how to find the perfect gold spray paint. I found the answer on a great pin from Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/pin/244461085994660136/

      Hope this helps! I've been super happy with this brand.
