I did a little shopping last Friday and found some great treasures I wanted to share with you.
First up, I headed to the bookstore to check out a couple magazines I recently discovered.
I really love Art Journaling, published by Stampington, where I find a lot of inspiration for my art cards and illustration projects.
The other magazine I found is called Cloth, published in the UK, full of inspirational ideas for making clothes and home furnishings, as well as reviews of new products, sewing advice, and features about shops, boutiques and designers.
I also found some new shoes! You know me, I do love Chucks, so how could I pass up a pair with a comic strip on the outside and polka dots on the inside!
My final stop was this cute little shop in downtown Madison called Anthology, owned by two creative sisters who fill their shop with fine papers, craft kits, handmade goods, workshops, instruction and inspiration.
I love finding vintage-looking travel paper, so I bought a pad full of vintage maps, air mail paper, vintage tags and signs, and all sorts of other goodies.
They had baskets full of packs of paper pieces, and I fell in love with the pieces in this pack. I don’t have a lot of bits and bops in my stash, so these will be fabulous to incorporate into my art cards and illustration projects.
