Meet Nikki from Brown Paper Lemon, a talented illustrator living on the Gold Coast, bringing her creations to life on beautiful pillowcases. I first came across Nikki playing #7vignettes on Instagram. Have you played before? It’s a fun Instagram game, hosted by the Jen Bishop from the Interiors Addict, where you are challenged to create little vignettes based on 7 themes or prompts.
Nikki’s vignettes always stand out in the feed. I found myself immediately drawn to her unique images and talent for drawing. Her crisp images often feature an illustration or two, making her vignettes completely original, impossible to replicate. You can check out Nikki’s Instagram feed here. Seriously, this girl has talent! Just check out his gorgeous costume, Max from Where the Wild Things Are, that she created for her son.
And this fabulous Kmart hack – Nikki added her Brown Paper Lemon stamp to this one and doesn’t it look great!
Instagram is a gold mine for locating fellow creatives and handmade artisans and Nikki is no exception. I get so excited when i see fellow creatives stepping up and developing their own businesses based on their passion. And this is exactly what Nikki has done!
Nikki has started printing her beautiful illustrations onto pillowcases. There are two illustrated pillowcases currently available through Brown Paper Lemon, Humpback Whale and Sperm Whale, but Nikki promises that there are more to come. I can’t wait!
