Watercolors - from brush strokes to greeting cards

elena wilken

Hand-drawn, hand-made, watercolors - are a hot trend across industries in 2016, especially in gifts and all things stationary. The Christmas and holiday cards and custom photo gifts I've created for Mpix.com's EW Couture collection, reflect that trend and my love affair with watercolor and hand lettering. ...And song birds :)

Whimsical Flower Fields

elena wilken

Too many ideas, too little time to complete them all... Or maybe the time is plenty, it just needs to be used with more purpose and wiser.  ...After all, we were all given 24 hours in a day ;)

This one it's been a lot of fun to work on, and from one story, it's easily expanding in more than one collection. Looking forward to complete it and share a little bit of the process, once my Christmas season work with Mpix and Miller's Design Market is completed. ...The color palette and the theme make me reminisce of a long past breezy summer :)

Language of Flowers - A is for Anemones

Keepsakes, stories, hope and bridges...

elena wilken

This is my absolute favorite memory box from the collection I've designed and licensed with Mpix, thus far. There is something special and unique about each one, but the Storybook Illustration memory box is the closest to my heart.
It reminds me of my growing up and of my grandma. ...It's happy, bright and exuberant but classy and elegant at the same time, holding oh so many stories and memories between its covers.
...A perfect gift for old and young souls alike.
I love this thought from Mattie Stepanek, and it's so fitting, so I'll share it: "Keep all special thoughts and memories for lifetimes to come. Share these keepsakes with others to inspire hope and build from the past, which can bridge to the future."

Fresh Beggining - a box for memories and soulful treasures

elena wilken

Welcome all the new beginnings...and celebrate them 💌
"One of the best ways to make yourself happy in the present is to recall happy times from the past. Photos are a great memory-prompt, and because we tend to take photos of happy occasions, they weight our memories to the good." ~ Gretchen Rubin ••• Fresh Beginning Mpix keepsake box, a fun and perfect custom gift.

Special thanks to N-E Photography for the use of the beautiful photographs showcased on the Fresh Beginning custom photo box. /// An EW Couture Collection design for Mpix.
