The Goth Hipster

I'm Scott, 26, sophistipunk from London, Ontario. I like the darker side of men's fashion, pretty girls, Doctor Who, horror movies and architecture. I usually reblog things I think are neat, but occasionally I'll post something from my life.
I tag and track all of my personal posts with #gothhipster, so if you're looking to bring something to my attention, that's an easy way to do it.
Had the day off today, so I decided to try my hand at card alters. This is my first attempt: I’m actually fairly pleased with it. The paint is a little thick in some places, and you can still see a bit of the divide where the border was, but I think not bad for a first go. I’ll definitely be trying some of the other colours, maybe a full card redo.

'Black Mrrors’ & ‘Black Garden’ by Lauren Fensterstock

Lauren Fensterstock combines art historical references to Modernism with Victorian craft traditions in her dense installations of handmade paper flowers, charcoal and mirrors. Her meticulaously built monochromatic gardens appear minimal from afar, but a closer look reveals an indulgent attention to detail.  Lauren is also a writer, curator and educator living in Portland, Maine.

Lauren Fensterstock explores the paradoxical themes of “natural” and “artificial” as represented in three horticultural traditions: the American lawn, the formal designs of eighteenth-century Europe, and the Japanese art of cultivating chrysanthemums. Creating three distinct gardens using ornately quilled, cut, and sculpted black paper, Fensterstock has cultivated highly crafted, delicate installations that embody the inherent contradiction of all gardens.
