Pardon my french

The story behind this design is that I made it on request of a dear friend of mine. She has a special connection to the french language and wanted something to hang over her bed. We spend one afternoon hunting down just the right color…

To travel is to live

I just love to travel. Seeing new places, being surrounded by a foreign culture and language is just awesome. Instead of always exploring it’s nice sometimes to just return to countries you’ve been to and cities where you’ve lived for a certain period in your…

Good days

I’ve been having a few particularly good days. Do you know what I mean? When everything seems to run smooth in your life and you feel like everything is in balance. Everyone passing by smiles at you, the cashier at the supermarket is friendly as…

Hand Lettering: City love

Ever since I was little I wanted to live in a big city. Coming from a small town, I always admired the flair of cities and the possibilities they contain. I like that you can go to a late night movie and don’t have to…

Updating happiness

Sometimes I need to take a moment in my daily routine and stressy situations to focus on what is important. Gaining perspective on the current situation or the position where I am in life. I’ve a rather impatient person, so it happens more than I’d…

The striped shirt

When I’m in a rush in the morning, this striped shirt is my life saver. It has a thick fabric almost like denim, and a loose fit. So it doesn’t really need ironing, which is nice. I love to combine it with simple basics like…

Love letters: superheroes exist

The occasion for this superhero-design was Valentines Day. Even though my valentine was far away on the day of love, I put some extra thought into this. I used mixed font lettering, meaning that I changed the way of writing for each word. On Valentines…

Girlfriend-, better yet mom-jeans

So I’m totally into this mom-jeans trend. I never thought they would be something that looks good on me, but as soon as I tried them on, I knew I had to have them. Without even trying to search for it, I found the perfect…

New in: Aqua eyeshadow

How awesome is aquamarin-colored eyeshadow? The answer is: very very much! When I read about the trend-spotting blue eyeshadow online, I was already intrigued. But as soon as I saw this baby, I knew it was the color to go for. I adore how it…

Kiss my soul, please

Another one of my designs for valentines. I believe that people fall in love because of a special interest in each others soul rather than looks. And I love drawing the word kiss, so that’s basicall the whole story behind it.

The Brushmeetspaper Calendar: 2015

This year I wanted to create my own calendar. After having enjoyed the one by the oh so talented Jasmine Dowling in 2014, I wanted to do my very own calendar. I used watercolor for the months and a copic pen to write the days.…

Highlighting & contouring

My current favorite beauty gadget is pink, tiny and a superhero: the beautyblender by „The original beautyblender“. The little sponge in the form of a water drop feels nicely in your hand and is ideal to apply make-up. For my daily make-up I’m using BB…

Brushmeetspaper Style Crush 1 March 2015

Style crush #1

Right now I’m overwhelmed with new runway impressions from the fashion weeks all over Europe. Fringes, Boot Cut Denim, low-cut V-Neck and the 70ies-color-palette – there are heaps of new pieces and trends to spot! However, the overload of the new season collections also makes…

New beginnings & the comfort zone

It’s quite hard to leave your comfort zone. Since I have started to study I have been trying to push myself to experiment with new things, experience a life outside of my habits and culture. I believe it’s super important, because it broadens your way…

Intro: Brushmeetspaper

Hej hej & welcome on my blog! I started working on my project brushmeetspaper at the end of 2014, but the idea behind it existed in my head already for ages. I’ve always wanted to start my own blog filled with just the ideal combination…
