Hello again crafty pals!
So as I mentioned, I’m continuing my roundup of 2013 faves by sharing a few of the top inspirations I spotted from fellow crafters this year. Thanks to Pinterest (here’s my boards) I’ve been saving these up – and lots more besides, haha – to browse, drool over and to help boost me when my mojo does a runner!
2. I couldn’t wait to get my inky paws on the Fresh Cut Florals set by WPlus9 (thanks Santa!) so I can try my hand at some of that beautiful floral arranging. I’ve lots of lovely examples pinned using this set, but my fave – and almost-impossibly brilliant – is this one by CAS-queen Debby Hughes:
4. I really love a mixy-matchy layered, slightly whimsical style when I’m crafting and Shilo is a stamper who really captures this so beautifully – perfect paper combos, unfailingly great colouring and then she tops each card off with lovely embellies
Here’s a classic I loved from her this year (can you guess why pandaholic-me chose this one, haha?!)
6, If it’s technique you’re after, this wow-factor ‘how to create the Northern Lights in ink’ is not to be missed. I’ve seen the Northern Lights and when I get a good bit of time in the crafty den this year, I’ll be devoting some time to playing with this method to try and recreate them myself. Like Lydia’s stunning example here. (The SCS tutorial link is at her blogpost by the way )
Hope you liked my 2013 inspiration picks from crafters I admire – have you got any recommendations to share that wowed you this past year? Leave me a comment as I’d love to check them out, and maybe add them to my blog feed too
See you for more crafty fun soon then pals…. I’m going to make a brew and off to watch the new series of Sherlock in a mo, Rx
