Kara! I just wanted to say thank you so much for your beautiful gallery comment! You are just the sweetest.


As I wonder through your incredible gallery, I just have to say.... I think you are perfection, just WOW. 


I love absolutely everything you make. It's all so crisp and clear and the colouring on everything is to die for. ❤️ 


You know I'll be back so please make more stuff asap ;)

Bex - Wow I'm sorry did you just compliment my stock use ??? I am deceased. That means so much coming from the stock queen herself. I used to be all about stock but it's soo out of my comfort zone now so this is very encouraging thank you! Also I never know what I'm doing so I am super flattered my style reminds you of anything at all. I definitely have always loved magazine/editorial vibes! Ok sorry I am def rambling now and this reply is so beyond late but THANK YOU. I adore you. I would die for you. I miss you. Hope you are well. Love you forever!!! xo


Niika - Ahhhh thank you, Niika! You are so sweet!! Always nice to hear such lovely things from one of the OGs. Your continued support means so much, and I'm so sorry you had to witness so much of the atrocities I used to make lmao and thank you for always inspiring me with your beauties!


Ashley - !!!!!!!! WELL HELLO THERE! Speaking of OGs!! I am so glad to see you! Hope life is treating you well! Thank you so much Ashley <333 I'm so bad with compliments but seriously it means so much to me that you like those pieces and my coloring and that you came to let me know and I'm off to stalk you right back !!!


(I use too many exclamation points and I am not sorry!!!)

p.s. this is my second and final year of grad school so I definitely have no time in my life but I kinda want to make things again and be creative so you MAY see some new things.....at some point.....no promises

i honestly don't even know where to start but i guess i'll go from top to bottom...

1. i love that coloring and stock and texture use on +this sig and the composition on all the rest is just a DREAM. the glowy effect on +this is also gorg and not having large text and just having the small text works so well for that sig as well.

2. i LOVE that you have a graphic with TOMATOES on it..for some reason that's so funny to me but omgggg i love +this CI  so much. the composition is lovely, and the coloring is beautiful on both CIs you have here.

3. EVERYTHING ABOUT +THIS!!!!! i'm so happy you made a queen's gambit banner and i LOVE how dynamic the composition is. i feel like there's so much to look at, the background is so interesting and the coloring is so cohesive and stunning.

4. my other favorite banner is +this  - love the stock/texture use to make it look kind of collagey, and i'm a sucker for the use of complementary colors - it works really well having two different colors for the title text!

5. your black and white blend is WOW 😍 i love how you had her blend into the one texture on the left side. pls make more blends even if they scare you. that is all. thank you.


overall you have some really gorgeous work here and i can't wait to see what else you create!

@kalopsia wow wow thank you I am unworthy of all of this praise! I'm glad you like the Queen's Gambit banner specifically as you were def the inspiration for it <33 I've been told I'm collagey before and I love some good complimentary colors so that's kinda my vibe but I am trying to branch out a little!! So we shall see!! I will also try to make more blends but no promises hahah


* also oh god I'm regretting that tomato now. It was part of the original texture so I just went with it but looking at it now it looks horribly distracting so I feel like I should go back and edit it out 🤣

Hi Kara, just returning the gallery visit! i'm a month late but let's forget about that


The way you use color is absolutely stunning. They're all so rich and luxurious and your graphics (especially the signatures) make me think of like, baroque oil paintings. I'm especially obsessed with the colors and depth of this sig, and I really love how glowy this one is. 


I love the comp in all of your banners (especially because I don't know how to make a banner lol). There's so much detail in each one, and it feels like I could spend forever looking at them, just picking out new details. I love the movement (and colors and text) of this one. The sky blue/orange color scheme of the first banner in the continuous banners is so pretty, and your Queen's Gambit banner makes me want to actually watch the show. 


And finally, I just love everything about this CI. The composition is so creative, and it feels very balanced without being completely symmetrical. I love the contrast between the textured background and the models/center image. And the text is absolutely perfect. 


I'm going to cut the rambling there, but I can't wait to see what else you make! 💖

@ana in wonderland Thanks so much, this makes me smile every time I see it 🥰🥰 It means a lot that you like my coloring because I often wonder if it's too boring. I've been trying to branch out a little! Just thank you so much. I think you are so lovely!!! And you should def watch the Queen's Gambit, it's great! 


Much love

i tried posting in here and then it ate my reply so here's attempt numero dos.  i don't know if you remember me, but man it's good to see you around still !! your graphics seem to have only gotten better since the uh, four years i was gone and i don't know what i like more - your eye for composition, the gorgeous and crisp colours, the fact that you can put so much detail into a single graphic without making it look overwhelming?? all of it is just chef's kiss.  


like a magpie, i would like to hoard all the shiny. 


xoxo enya
