Fashion & Decor #OlioHop with Robin Maria Pedrero

First of all I am so excited to be invited as an #OlioHop blogger! 
is SOO much fun!
Once you make an Olioboard you just want to make more,
with so many options to explore. (click blog post to continue)
"Awaken to Rhapsody & Take it With You All Day"

Olioboard enables me to create 2D and 3D rooms where I have access to incredible decor images from stores like Layla Grace and Wayfair. To top it off Olioboard enables me to use my own images so I can actually place my art and fashions in the board and showcase them in my created board venue online. 
Above in my Olioboard "Awaken Decor & Fashion" is my painting "Rhapsody" and my painting transformed on to a silk scarf.
As an Etsian (I have an Etsy Shop where customers can purchase my work) I utilize my Olioboards  to present my work as with this piece "Interlude".

My Olioboards also make wonderful banners on my Facebook Art Page.

I truly mean what I say about Olioboard being habit forming. I couldn't resist! SEE I made 2 Fashion and Decor boards. This one is "Come out of your Cocoon", the painting of mine is "Mariposa" which means butterfly in Spanish, so after you've rested well in your blissful bedroom it's time to take wings, and head out into the world with your "Mariposa Silk Scarf".
 With a lifetime experience as an artist I am over the top excited about my work being transformed into fashion like the silk scarves, fine art bags and cases for cell phones. My Art or Decor, as this #Oliohop explores, is transformed into FASHION!

You might be wondering why I've made two bedroom boards (above). They each have items from Layla Grace, which I just love AND they are having a contest!

LAYLA GRAYCE has launched the 1st of (4) 2 week contests. We are all excited because each 2 week contest comes with a first prize of $1000.00 and a 2nd and 3rd prize. Layla Grayce judges are: Crystal Gentilello of Rue Magazine, then Tobi Fairley, Jonathan Adler and Molly B Sims will judge their subsequent contests.

Here's the link to the Olioboard blog explaining the contest:

Hi Robin, found you via today Twitter posts about your work on Olioboard. I'm just starting out to feature my art on Olioboard (working on my first one) and seeing your post is quite inspiring. Love it! Your paintings are fantastic. It also looks like you may be a Central Floridian from your site. I was in Orlando for many years, now in Tampa. Good luck - I really like what you are doing! - Beverly

Good morning, Robin!

On behalf of the Olioboard team (of which I am a part ) thank you, Robin, for participating in our OlioHop blog hop on this month's theme of Fashion and Decor. The way you've been able to utilizie Olioboard to create an online portfOLIO of your work is amazing and you were one of the first artists to really get the potential. Now, you've helped many more see what's possible and have done a great service to the artistic community around the world-who can create a set with their art (as you've done) and who need a way to show their work in scale in an actual room setting since people can upload a picture of their real rooms into Olioboard for free and then drag and drop art into it.

Today, there will be a FB album on of everyone's Fashion and Decor creations for their hop so that everyone at High Point Market will be able to see what's possible --since this is their theme this fall. We're excited to be able to showcaseyour beautiful real life art + fashion creations this way!

Personally speaking, it has been such a pleasure getting to *know* you through Twitter and social media even though we've still never had a chance to meet face to face and it thrilled me yesterday to see Sasha Kane finally got to hang the small painting of yours I bought from you.

I know you have some family things of your own going on, Robin, yet, through all of that, you continue painting, sharing and being a conveyor of your own vision of beauty and color to the world. What a blessing you are to those who know you and to your other artist friends!

Have a wonderful day and thank you again!
