Sneaky Peek of …September’s Mixed Media Kit…available 9/15

 

Hi girlies! I hope you all are having a FAB Thursday! I have been getting a lot of request for more peeks! I designed the Mixed Media Kit this month with the vision of a  Junque Journal that contains a DROP.DEAD.GORGEOUS. ANTIQUE book that was created way back in the day as a set of Children’s learning books..aptly called “The Book of Knowledge”. It is fully leather bound and embossed and I was shocked that they are completely intact for their age. I do believe they weren’t used that much.  I have saved this set for about 6 years just waiting for the right opportunity to share them for something very special. When you see it you will understand why. The illustrations and writings inside are nothing short of AMAZING. Will make for some super fun ART JOURNALING! A place to write about your hopes, dreams, fantasies…and maybe realities if you dare…LOL. I also needed a small edition of kits as there were only one set of the books. So this kit has a smaller availability and going forward I just want to let all my clients know that I am more interested in QUALITY versus QUANTITY. There may not be a lot of my specialty kits each month available due to my love of all things Vintage and Antique…but I GUARANTEE to WOW you and bring you only the BEST! With all that being said…if you would like to reserve this kit send an email to Admin@BadGirlsCouture.com if you want a guarantee to get one before reveal on September 15th.

Just a little tease….because I’m BAD!!!!…hahahaha

Check back daily for more peeks! xoxo….Wendy

 

Sneaky Peak of Our Vintage Kit and Scrapbooking Kit!

With our Grand Opening coming soon on September 15th I thought I would start some sneaky peeks for you girlies! I thought I would first let you know that here at BAD GIRLS COUTURE we handle your kits with the utmost of care….this is how your kits go out to you…as you can see they are already packed and ready to go to their new homes!!!!…..

Yes…your kit is packed in your very own BAD GIRLS COUTURE PINK TOTE BAG that has a front pocket for any of your notes and we add any correspondence to you there…so always check your front pocket!….This is a GORGEOUS way to keep your kits organized with all elements in one place so when you go to work on it you are not looking for the kit content!

I have received a lot of EXCITEMENT in regards to all the kits we have coming out and one of those is September’s Vintage Kit….”SIDESHOW”…take a look at these Vintage Wooden Mini Crates that I found in an Antique Store here in So. Calif. I marveled at how they were possibly made by Kraft. Not sure…but it makes sense…they don’t look to me like they were cut form something else and repurposed…and see how the lettering is perfect size for the crate??? Absolutely STUNNING…and what we are making with it is TO.DIE.FOR.!!!!! I still have a few of the Vintage Kits left…if you want me to reserve one for you prior to release please email me at Admin@BadGirlsCouture.com to ensure you get yours!

 

 

These Limited Edition BAD GIRLS COUTURE STICK PINS are also in the Vintage Kit…they are made from 100% Vintage Elements…they are truly GIORGEOUS!

 

The Main Scrapbook Kit is AMAZING girlies…DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS ONE! And I only have a few subscription spots left…we have gotten a lot of pre order requests…so please again..email at Admin@BadGirlsCouture.com if you are interested in being added to the list to secure your spot…A peek of that GORGEOUS KIT….

 

More sneaky peeks are on the way soon! Excuse our dust on the website while we are still preparing for Grand Opening…and if you have any questions please reach out to me via Admin@BadGirlsCouture.com….(((hugs))) xoxo…Wendy

 

 

 

CONGRATULATIONS to our BAD GIRLS COUTURE ARTISTS!!!

Happy Friday everyone! I am so dang EXCITED to be announcing our 2017-2018 DESIGN TEAM! First I would like to thank everyone who applied. There were so many AMAZING entries and it was so hard to choose! These 8 girls just completely WOW’ed me and I am so ELATED to say that I am going to have them on my team!

At BAD GIRLS we completely embrace that there is NO FEAR and NO RULES in creating art and I just LOVE.LOVE.LOVE. when an artist can show that there are no barriers…that she can create with utter abandon from the depths of her heart and soul… and that is exactly what I saw in each of these girls. The further you stray from typical the better…right????!!! WE are BAD!!! LOL… So…let me have a little fun here…I am going to share with you one of the entires from each girl and tell you what I love about it….So…grab your favorite cuppa and a little snack…let’s get started….

 

Nicole Martel is my Design Team Coordinator. She’s one heck of a sassy ass BAD GIRL from Maryland and she RAWKS the BAD GIRL vibe with her BAD ASS style….when I saw her entry I was like…ummmm…HELL YA!!!!! Check out this LO that she entered….Nicole can seriously mix it up and make it look effortless…but make no mistake…some serious thought goes into her talent of keeping the art balanced…yet funky cool! I love her use of mixed media and how she holds hand journaling close to her heart…all I can say is WOW!!! And yes Nicole…you can do AMAZING things!

 

 

Elena Olinevich is my Bad Girls Couture Artist….she may be across the ocean in Belarus but her BAD GIRL STYLE is close to her heart…when I saw her entry it just screamed at me…”I HAVE NO FEAR AND I DO WHAT I WANT” and I know how to make it look dang good!!! Her attention to detail is AMAZING! Take a look at this Layout that Elena created…it has that funky BAD GIRL vibe but her articulation of all elements is extremely evident! I love her ability to be super versatile. She works just as confidently with mixed media as she does with paper and embellishments…get ready to be WOW’ed by this EXCEPTIONAL artist!

 

 

Irina Volzhina is my Bad Girls Couture Artist that represents us in Russia. One look at her entries and I knew she not only dreamed in  color but I’m pretty darn sure she dreams about art! This BAD GIRL can create ANYTHING….I had a lot of trouble choosing JUST ONE of her entires to share with you…one of them involved cake!!!! Need I say more???!!!! Versatile is an understatement and everything she creates is nothing short of breathtaking! Be forewarned…Irina is totally bringing SEXY BACK!!! Take a look at this mini album…I love how she can use so many elements and make it look ASTOUNDING!

 

 

Michelle Rossibell is my Bad Girls Couture Artist creating her funky cool and sophisticated BAD GIRL STYLE art in sunny California. Michelle loves so many different types of media and when I saw her entry I was like…”REALLY????…OMG…I LOVE EVERYTHING!” You can give Michelle anything and I promise she will make it MEMORABLE, PRETTY, and QUITE MARVELOUS!!! Take a look at this artwork….It completely STUNS! I love her use and no fear of COLOR. I also love how she is elegant and at the same time she knows how to grunge it up a bit with mixed media! Prepare to be INSPIRED!

 

 

Michelle Sanders is my Bad Girls Couture Artist….a blushing BAD GIRL belle who resides down South in Louisiana…how can she not be BAD???!!!! When I saw her entry I had to just sit down and pour over it because swear…she EMBODIES BAD GIRL STYLE in TOTALITY…Michelle will put ANYTHING on her art…I LOVE IT!!! She DOES NOT overthink it and it’s so obvious…why??? Because it’s AMAZING!  Look at this Layout…she put fabric (a girl after my own heart), she used embroidery thread…and she grudges it up with NO RULES! Look no further if you want FUNKY mixed with INNOVATION!

 

 

Rae Moses is my Bad Girls Couture Artist who creates her AMAZING BAD GIRL STYLE art projects in Nevada…and wait till you see what this BAD ASS creates!!! When I saw her artwork I was like…”OK…DROP THE MIKE!!! THIS ARTIST IS AMAZING” I think you will agree with me when you see this Layout she created…she pays attention to all the little DETAILS and I love how she adds so many elements and does it with SO MUCH STYLE, BALANCE and HARMONY! Her use of Mixed Media and all things artsy are just DREAMY…you just want to keep looking at it…RIGHT???!!! Soooo INSPIRING!

 

 

Zoey Scarpelli is my Bad Girls Couture Artist from Italy. OK…let me just say that when you think BAD GIRL…you think ZOEY…she lit her art ON FIRE…literally. NO FEAR? CHECK. NO RULES? CHECK. BAD ASS? CHECK. It’s when you can let go like this that the ABSOLUTE BEST comes out in you…and you MUST SEE this layout she created…Can you just say “WOW???!!!” I love how she adds mixed media, stitching, ummm…fire, and so much more…but it makes you CONTEMPLATE art and it ASSURES you that the beauty of art is found in so many different guises..and that is what makes it sooo FUN!!! THAT is BAD GIRLS!!!!

 

 

I know…I know…I didn’t try out for my team…but if you know me…and a lot of you do from BAD GIRLS before….I am not just the owner…I ALWAYS create art with my team…I wouldn’t be happy if I just sat on the sidelines because art is my LOVE.  I decided to share a mini album with you that I created… in what embodies BAD GIRL style to ME. I love using COLOR!!! I feel there is a misconception that Vintage has to be sepia toned…NO RULES!!! I just love to mix everything up…life in itself is serious…when I create art I just love to let go and DO WHAT I WANT!  I love using lots of funky elements. I search the world for all the crazy vintage elements I add to the kits every month….I can’t show you every page of this album…but see the glass cherries?…I found those in France….sooooo FUN! So…expect the UNEXPECTED in BAD GIRLS kits….and make sure you come here to not only learn…we WILL TEACH YOU to work with all mediums…but most important come here to PLAY…to LET GO…to just HAVE FUN and create something BAD ASS!!!

The website is still being worked on….all the subscription buttons and kits will up on the 15th. There will be three other kits…the MIXED MEDIA kit, the HOME DECOR kit, and the VINTAGE kit.

BAD GIRLS COUTURE KITS COMING SOON!

Hi everyone! I am happy you made your way over here….if you are one of my baddies from before WELCOME BACK and if you are new to BAD GIRLS you are about to have the best artistic experience of your life!

BAD GIRLS is all about supplying you…the artist… with the artisanal you need to learn and create the art of your dreams. All the while you are part of a community of artists who are very supportive. BAD GIRLS believes that art should not be intimidating. The fear that is usually associated with art will be removed….and you WILL be able to create all that you have ever dreamed of!!! That’s the exciting part….so many artists are full of fear…they look at art and say to themselves…”I could never create that”. Not true. Become a part of Bad Girls and you will see just what I mean.

I am not just the owner here, but I am an artist also and I dive in and get involved just as much  as my design team. My goal is to create artists!!!! And I promise you that….you will become competent in all mediums. You will have FUN doing it. Here you can expect NO RULES. I will bring out the individual artist in each and every one of you….no matter your style and experience. I just ask that you believe in yourself, believe in us and just plain and simple….get ready to BE BAD!!!!

Our site is still under construction. Our first kits will be available in September. I cannot wait to show you what AMAZING kits we are going to have. We are going to have a little bit of EVERYTHING! I believe that art should always be FUN so I have designed 4 offerings of kits that will be available every month……

  1. SCRAPBOOK KIT….this kit will be a large gorgeous kit chock full of amazing goodies for you. Patterned paper, Cardstock, beautiful embellishments, ribbons, etc. This kit will also include some Vintage and Antique elements every month.
  2. MIXED MEDIA KIT….this kit will focus on different types of mixed media every month. You will learn how to incorporate these mediums into your artwork with a different technique monthly. This kit is a good addition to the Scrapbook Kit if you want to be even BADDER in your style and up your game by using more mixed media. It’s also a great stand alone kit for someone who wants to just create a mixed media project. It is meant to encompass a broad range of artists….for the beginner who is just starting to learn to the advanced artist who wants to create a masterpiece. This kit will also include some Vintage and Antique elements at times.
  3. HOME DESIGN KIT….this kit is for the artist who wants to delve into even more artistic endeavors and get her BAD GIRL GROOVE on!!!! SO…..you wanna learn to work with decoupage….wood….tin tiles….a wall hanging…..how about learning how to create your very own mini chandelier….or a gorgeously embellished pillow? This will help you to push your creative muse even further all the while creating STUNNING things for your house that you can feel proud of and brag about!!!! Come on BAD GIRLS…it’s time to have some FUN!!!
  4. VINTAGE KIT….this kit will focus on Vintage Design and be heavily weighted with Vintage Elements. It will only be available in very limited edition. Why? It is not easy to find gorgeous authentic vintage and antique elements in large quantity. So, in my travels I purchase what appeals to me and only the best and most unique items…. and most times I can only find very few of the same thing. I search the world for the elements that will be in this kit. Only the finest ephemera from France, Italy, London, etc. This is a very special kit to me and it takes a lot of time and effort to source these goodies….I am more than elated to offer such a unique kit as this one!

So there you have it. That will be our first line up of kits coming very soon! I have gotten a lot of questions about reserving a spot for the kits. If you would like to reserve any of these kits please send  an email to:  Admin@BadGirlsCouture.com and indicate which kits you wish to reserve a spot for. Include your name, mailing address and phone number.

If we reach our threshold of kits I will begin to add artists to a waitlist. The only kit that will be available via monthly subscription will be our Scrapbook Kit. All other kits due to their limited edition will be available to artists who reserve a spot for those kits. Once all spots are taken you will be added to waitlist and once we either increase kit numbers or someone relinquishes their spot you will then be notified that you can begin to receive  that particular kit.

Please post here if you have any questions and please visit often as I will be giving frequent updates.

Here are a few pictures with some sneak peeks of what will be going into our future kits. This will also give you an example of what BAD GIRL STYLE is all about!!!!
