This is Jennifer she is 15 years old and is a Freshman in highschool. She is an average student not to sure of what she wants to do in the future. For now she is enjoying playing volleyball. Her friends are big into beauty youtubers and Jennifer follows just enough to know what the newest trends are.

Jennifer would use my site to see what catches her interest and see if she can find a new perfume to throw in her gym bag.

Kaylin, 28, works as a young entrepreneur. She enjoys the work as she can put in a ton of hours but also make her own schedule. With this freedom she has an active social life and enjoys going to events. It could be a concert, a night club, or a gallery showing she loves to be surrounded by people and stay up with current events. She loves staying in fashion in any way possible.

May is 72 and is a working artist. She says she is too young to retire and will likely always say that. She enjoys seeing the work of others. May has a strong belief that exploring lots of interests is the key to life and adventure. She believes in long breakfast and tea time in the garden with a good book.

Design & Perfume

 I'm obsessed with perfume if you've known me at all you'll know that. (I have a perfume and sewing blog on my website GildedFish) One thing I like to do is look at the designs used for individual perfumes. For simpler Indy brands I like to re-imagine them designed with my style.

Right now I'm very attracted to Kitch in graphic design. I love me a yellow background. I am also a fan of the Indy bath and perfume brand Haus Of Gloi. I chose their Haus Coffee perfume for my first redesign.

I wanted brightness in the background but also a deep richness of color for the coffee. Coffee Haus as a scent is very strong and makes me think of a black breakfast coffee. Unfortunately this perfume arrived at my door after I had started this project. I work a lot and due dates are a thing, it doesn't always work out.

I will likely re-use this design for another of their coffee perfumes and start fresh with Coffee Haus.


It's been a long 6 years since I've posted on this blog and like normal for everything I do I'm posting for a school assignment. (The same reason this blog got started the first time around.)


Hello there I'm Chelsea. I'm a graphic design, marketing, and business student. The big trifecta. 

Stick around and find out what content awaits. I'm sure there will be lots of art and design here in the future.

New Technique

The main idea of this technique is to take a drawing, mount it to a board, than layer acrylic medium and ink to build up color. There is some paint thrown in but it didn't work all that well. Oils are definitely needed.

I would like to know why this looks so white on my ipad and so yellow on my computer.
