Blessed spring, watercolour painting + collage by iHanna, May 2011.

Another square collage 13×13 centimeters (5×5″) above. This is a water colour painting that has some collage bits too, just because I love those little papers. I was experimenting with this one and I think it turned out just the way I feel about spring: bright and happy. It can be found in my Etsy shop if you’re interested! :-)

Inspiring blogs

I find new and inspiring blogs all the time. Sometimes I stay a few months and then stop reading, other times I get addicted and come back over and over again hoping for new content. These are just a few of my recent findings, I thought I’d share them with you today in case you have some surfin’ time… They are all well worth visiting for quite a while, so get coffee and start clicking away!

  • Paperclipping by Noell Hyman
    I am not a traditional scrapbooker but lately I’ve been listening in to these podcast discussions and I love them! There is the Paperclipping Roundtable, a discussion about all things creative memory keeping, and there is the Digi Show where you’ll learn about fonts, programs, organizing photos, layout ideas etc. I listen while I do paper clipping, painting or drawing at my desk. Great shows!
  • the Smallest Forest by Natalie Quintos Uhing
    Great photography of awesome handmade journals, crafts and life in general. I like Natalie’s style a lot! She makes craft into art.
  • Hell 2 breakfast also by Natalie
    Natalie’s craft tutorial blog is just a must-visit place (right now!). A whole blog dedicated to tutorials, and great ones at that. I love her beautifully written craft mission, it’s about recycling. My favorite tutorial is her book headbands for book binding!

Have a blessed day!
