Creative Carlow

By Elaine Scully Styling

Today my handmade accessories went on sale in the Creative Carlow Pop Up Shop (beside Scraggs on Tullow Street) which will be open until Christmas Eve....I'm delighted to be a part of this and have met some amazingly talented crafts people while helping set up the shop. Carlow County Enterprise Board generously funded this project offering an exciting opportunity for myself and other local creatives.

I've been very busy these past few weeks so don't have a huge amount of stock in the shop, hopefully this weekend I might get a chance to make more pieces but here are two pics from my little section.


 
 




For a better idea of what my accessories look like check out these shots from my recent photoshoot with the amazing Kath Oniszk Photography - Kath is the only photographer I have modelled for and she makes me feel so comfortable and constantly gives me direction, encouragement and ultimately confidence...Love her. My fabulously glam makeup was applied by my beautiful blogging partner and perfectionist Anne Hutton.....I have never felt so glamorous :)







 
I will be helping out in the shop whenever I can and plan to take some pics of the other work on sale and will post them here over the next few days.
 
Enjoy your Friday night!!

Texture Blocking Shoot

By Elaine Scully Styling

This post is long overdue............finally I'm getting around to posting the shots from my shoot with Cork Photographer Shaun Barry. I put a lot of planning into this shoot and it was completely worth every second of it as I was blown away with the results. Everything came together perfectly thanks to the fab team I worked with - along with Shaun there was Makeup Artist Anne Hutton (my blogging partner), Clare Hannaford Hair stylist and our amazing model Suzanne Moran.

I will let the shots speak for themselves - the first 2 images are the mood boards I prepared to help the team get into my head and understand my vision for the shoot.
