My Latest Flower Girl — And A Gift!

Dear Lovelies,

It’s always an exciting moment to welcome a new friend into the Young Girl in Bloom fold (or as Kara at Forman calls them, ‘Carla’s Army’) and this one may just rock your world. She is very dear to my heart and I believe has a message for all women; her name is See Me.

When I was thinking about creating her, I wanted to feel the joy of colour, kind of like painting the town red except it is orange! I wanted her to jump or dance off your wall with that exquisite feeling of aliveness that floods your body when you live life authentically and dare to be seen or voice your message.

This is her story:

For centuries, it has been unsafe for women to be seen or heard. This message has been passed down from generation to generation, so for many of us, it’s a natural place to be invisible, to stay quiet, and blend in. Being invisible means you don’t go out into the world with the joyous expression of who you are; instead, you squash your emotions, voice, fear judgment, and don’t share your true gifts with the world. 

SEE ME was created with girls and women in mind whose message, creativity, talents, love, and skills are needed now. It is only when you have the courage to connect to the expression of your true nature that you reconnect to the women that came before you, and you will inspire others to find their courage, bring their message, inner beauty, and knowledge to the world. 

When you dare to embrace your true nature, be seen and heard as your real self, reconnect to your intuition and gifts, then the magic and healing of our inner and outer world truly begins. Be seen and heard!

Kara Forsythe at Forman Art & Framing in Australia and Tara Gavin of On The Wall Framing in Canada want to spread the joy as we head towards the close of 2021. We want you to surround yourself with ‘the colour of joy’, maybe a bright Italian beach or one of the Young Girl in Bloom series that will transport you and inspire you each time you glance at the walls. These little visual mantras will have you whistling and humming as you pass by and help the feel-good flow in your veins.

In the words of Ingrid Fetell Lee, author of ‘Joyful’: “From the moment I first started studying joy, it was clear that the liveliest places and objects all have one thing in common: bright, vivid color. Whether it’s a row of houses painted in bold swaths of candy hues or a display of colored markers in a stationery shop, vibrant color invariably sparks a feeling of delight.” 

We are offering a free 12 x 18 inch Young Girl In Bloom print with purchase of ANY print of 20 x 30 inch and over so no matter what is going on outside your walls, inside your home you will feel joy and you will have a gift for a friend, partner, daughter, niece, or for another place in your house that needs a little joy.

You can get your 20 x 30 inch (or larger) Limited Edition Fine Art Print and your 12 x 18 inch flower girl freebie from my online shop. See the details here.

Bring the Natural World Into Your Home

Dear Lovelies,

Our homes have become our castles and our prisons at the same time! 

Whilst part of the world is still in lockdown, I wanted to share with you some of the beautiful works of nature and the world outside of your four walls that could bring some love, care, and beauty to your home.

Beauty is a powerful antidote to fear and confinement. Beauty transports us on every level and it has an important effect on our nervous systems, it promotes pleasure and pleasure promotes well-being. 

Casting your eyes on a place you love, that rekindles fond memories or allows you to dream, means you are no longer just within your four walls. 

I’m delighted to share with you today these works of art that will transform your walls to a misty day at the beach, a walk in the mountains with the scents of wildflowers, the glory of the beach at dawn, and remembering just how amazing and beautiful our world is.

You can shop all the works by clicking on the photos above and below.

“The home of the future is not as sci-fi as we imagine. Instead of whizbang gadgetry and the bells and whistles reminiscent of The Jetsons, the home of the future is all about sustainability, energy-efficient design, an expression of the individual, and a hotbed of creativity and inspiration.”

Mother's Day

Introducing Our Latest Flower Girl — Mother’s Day FREE Print Offer 💐

Mother's Day

Beauty in Balance

In balance there is beauty, harmony and the things that man and womankind have been searching for throughout time. When we feel beauty, it’s a love rush of pleasure to our senses and a lift to our spirit that changes everything.

Balance is a place of harmony deep within us, we feel our internal shapes, form and feelings sit lovingly together and when we are in this place we are rock solid steady, we have the sum of two equal parts working for us and it allows us to go further without pushing against life.

This girl was photographed in Paris in the 6th arrondissement with a big bunch of lilac to remind you whenever you feel out of harmony all you need to do is take a step in the opposite direction to find the beauty of balance within you.

Young Girl in Bloom – New Blue Hydrangea Print

Centred in Self, Carla Coulson Prints, Carla Coulson, Flower Photography

My Dearest Lovelies,

I’m super excited to share with you a new member of my Young Girl in Bloom series and she is covered in a flurry of blue hydrangeas. 

Her name is Centred in Self and I think she’s the perfect way to celebrate the start of 2021.

2020 was a year that turned everything upside down in our worlds, made us look at how we were doing things and what is essential. We had to stop, sit still, be calm and no matter how uncomfortable it was reflect on what we want and what is really important to us.

My wish for 2021 is that you gained a little of that beautiful grounded feeling and that you can move forward from a place of clarity of knowing what is right for you, centred in yourself.

Drumroll… Centred in Self, and this is her story:

Women and girls for centuries have been taught that if you consider yourself or dare to put your dreams first, you are self-centred or selfish. So putting yourself first for many women and girls, can feel unnatural and uncomfortable.

If you switch the words around (as my friend Sonia Choquette told me) you have a new experience, you are ‘centred-in-self’ and from that place you bring balance and harmony to your life. Your feet are firmly planted on the earth, you operate from the inside and you can make great decisions to support what’s best for you. This is a calm and knowing place to be, a place that celebrates you and what you truly want.

If you pay attention to the signs, they will point you to the right opportunities, to the people that will understand and celebrate you and you’ll find all the things you want in life slowly start to come your way.

Being centred-in-self gives you a rudder, access to deep inner knowledge and the confidence and trust to act on it. This girl was created to remind you if you consider yourself, it’s the most beautiful spiritual move you can make.

She is available in Australia from Forman Art & Framing and Internationally HERE.

For trade enquiries in Toronto, you can also contact On The Wall Framing.

I hope you enjoy the latest member of Young Girl in Bloom and may she bring you calm, beauty and joy to your home.

Love and light,

Carla x
