Inspired by someone who is inspired by someone else

Thanks everyone who participated in the giveaway and asked some really nice questions about journaling, creativity and blogging! I will try to answer a few of them in later posts on this blog.

Today I’ve sent the last emails in the embroidered ATC-swap that I have arranged via FB. When I have written a few more postcards and packed my own ATC:s to sent of on Monday I will be resting from all this swap-business for a while. I want to show you my own finished postcards though (and also the cards my mom created, they are very cute) – so stay tuned. Today I’ve also updated my shop with some original collages like the one above and this one;

Collage: Not here
February collage Not here by iHanna. Available in my Etsy Shop.

I call this collage “Not here” because I think of it as a hide-and-seek game in lines and grids… The painted wallpaper is a thick paper that makes it a bit dimensional but I’ve also added a bit of a shadow (I love adding shadows!) with one of the gray pitt pens in the manga kit. Isn’t it cool?

Now let’s have some inspirational link love for our Sunday enjoyment…
