Summertime fun continues at el&em

The Summer feels like it is just flying by! 
We've had parades, cruise nights, carnivals and street fairs...all right outside 
our front door.
Oh how we love our little town!!



Along with all the old fashioned hometown Summer fun, here at el&em 
we've had some fabulous workshops, First Friday events and DIY demos. 

One of our most requested mixed media workshops is our
ALTERED VINTAGE BOOKS
Here we've altered this old book into a gratitude journal. 
We added all kinds of fun and unexpected little pockets, folds and 
interactive pieces. 

We incorporated vintage lace, doilies, hankies, ephemera, found trinkets,
 pressed flowers, ribbons and more. 




Our next mixed media journal book class is coming up August 29th. 
We'll be using layers of lace and fabric and paper and more!



We also had an awesome DIY decor workshop using 
multiple paint mediums, stencil techniques and upcycled items. 




These very chic frames feature a cool bold chevron background and either a 
photo mat block or a mirror addition. 


If you missed this workshop...no worries, we will be offering it again this Fall.



We are LOVING our new Mineral Chalk paint line!
Dixie Belle paint has been a wonderful addition to our growing paint line offerings.  
It is perfect (and EASY) for furniture pieces & decor items 
and it's also been an amazing medium for our mixed media art projects too!! 



and....a couple product updates:

Our awesome lockers!
We have ONE bank of 3 left.
We sold out of theses SO quickly.
We intended to keep this last bank for storage in our studio but discovered the one existing bank is plenty (they are AWESOME for storage and fit A LOT of stuff!!).
FCFS!!

oh these LOVELY vintagey bags!!
We were finally able to get them back in stock then quick as can be sold out in less than 2 days (AGAIN!!)
But have no fear...
We placed another order. They should arrive in a week or so.
You can pre-pay and reserve one if you'd like. Simply drop by the shop or give us a call.
