Touring Color Factory

You’re in for a treat with this post, folks! I’m sure by now you’ve seen the crazy photos that are being posted about Color Factory, a two-story color experience with room after room of Instagram-worthy set ups spear-headed by the ever-visionary, Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day, in San Francisco. Last week I took a quick trip to see it in person.

The color maze culminates in the yellow ball pit, which made for the best “reverse” function on Stories of all time, no?!

No detail was left untouched as I wound through, including these stripey stairs, which just so happened to go well with my dress.

Picasso Inspired DIY Wire Portrait

DIY Wire Portrait

You’re probably familiar with Picasso’s Cubism movement, pioneering a modern form of abstract art that countered the long held belief that paintings should be a realistic interpretation of reality. However, you’re probably not familiar with his more simplistic line drawings. One specific portrait by Picasso captured our hearts and we decided to create a wire rendition of his portrait! Perfect to hang over your desk or to fill an empty space on a wall, this DIY Wire portrait adds a bit of artistry to your home. Simply print off the picture to use as a template and start bending the wire to follow the lines. You’ll have a masterpiece even Picasso would be proud of 😉 You could apply this same technique to your own drawings!

For the template and a few tricks and tips, read on!
