About the Design

Recently, I found myself out shopping – browsing the racks for spring’s newest styles. Before I realized what was happening I found myself face-to-face with a pair of pink and purple acid washed jeans. Needless to say, they were horrific, but I found it hard to deny the paint splattered-like artistry behind their design.

Thus, inspiration was born. I scoured the web for paint splatters and came across a beautiful pack of extremely hi-res textures from These are absolutely gorgeous and the possibilities are really endless when it comes to cropping to get different looks and adjusting hue/saturation in Photoshop to get just the color scheme you’re looking for.

The type face featured is Engravers Gothic.

Happy April!
