New Series: Two Friends’ Favorite Blog Posts

Welcome to a new occasional series on my blog.  I’ve reached out to a number of artsy friends to ask them what their favorite blog posts are.   That’s a tough question, for sure!  I am curious to learn which ones are their favorites, and why. I hope you will be, too.

Two Friends' Favorite Blog Projects (Marjie Kemper)


Sandra Mouwen

Meet Sandra Mouwen of Made by Sannie.  Sandra lives in the The Netherlands, and she’s shared a favorite steampunk-style card. I love her rich colors and all those gorgeous gears.

Sandra says, “About six years ago I started with paper crafting, and my first inspiration was Tim Holtz. Still to this day he’s my biggest inspiration and that’s why this card is my favorite. It represents my love for grunge, gears and distressing, but also for finding my own style.”  You’ll find a tutorial for this project on Sandra’s blog.

Lizzy Wurmann

Next up is Lizzy Wurmann from My Way of Living. Lizzy lives in Chile, and she has chosen a favorite heavy metal canvas for us. She has included so many fun elements… it’s like playing “I Spy” when I admire this piece.

Lizzy says, “I have tried a few times to make these kind of projects but this is the first time I feel it has more like Finnabair’s look to it and I’m very happy with the result, especially with lights and shadows.” You’ll find several close-up photos on Lizzy’s blog.
