Who Inspires You? Link and Spread Some Love

Well, I think most people know I am inspired by my own Little Bit, but I am also totally in awe of some amazing crafters and artists in the art world as well.  I am inspired by all my DT members, but there are tons of other artisans---too many to list---and many who I know I would love to see, but there aren't enough hours in the day to find them...LOL

So I want to know. Who inspires you? Let's share some of the love!! Do you admire him/her/them due to their artistic growth and amazing skill today and yesterday? Is there an amazing card every time you visit a blog?

Is it a creative spirit which always comes up with inventive projects?

Would you trade your Copics for an hour in their craft room? Okay, well, maybe half your Copics?? LOL

I would like to "meet" the person/crafter/blogger who inspires you. If you take the time to share, you will be entered into a drawing for the Wryn image of your choice. I will select 2 random winners. You can link as many people as you like, but let's try to keep it to 5 per person....LOL

Here is how it will work....I opened a link list below, so that you can:
  1. Link the blog of the crafter(s) that inspire you and then 
  2. Leave a comment with the link you shared. This way, we all get to see the inspirational person, but I can choose a winner from the comments, giving credit to that person for sharing.
That simple...just a chance to brag on someone else...someone we might not have met yet. :) Let's share some love and maybe win a digi...

The link list will stay open until Monday of next week. I will choose 2 random comments after the link list closes and post them next Tiddly Tuesday.

And while you are here, did you see the newest Wryns? Check out these two adorable samples:

I am the #1 entry, i love every bit of LilyBean's Paperie...all of her cards, recipes, likes...it's like a piece of art every time i look at her cards/projects. I don't think i'd have to trade my copics as it doesn't appear she uses them. :) (In terms of loosing my copics...i'd give a few away to spend some time w/Carisa (Lady Guinevere))

My inspiration is Artfully Musing, Laura Carson. She has the most amazing, artistic mind when it comes to altered items. I wish I had her outlook.

Kimberly said...

Kimberly said...

If you want to see the perfect easel card just go to Leah Ann. I've not seen a better easel card on blogland yet...that's all she creates, amazing.

Thanks ladies....there are some amazing new blogs listed! :)

Rosa Witten said...

Wow it was really hard to choose just one, but you already know Cheryl V. So I went with another crafter Angela who knocks my socks off every time. Her coloring is AMAZING!

Jenn Borjeson said...

Meredith inspires me - she's not only an amazing and inspirational artist, but a true sweetheart and a good friend. :)

Carly said...

I have linked a lovely blog called Crafting With Cotnob .. by Pauline. I love her colouring and her cards ... I'm a follower of hers and always love to see what she has created.

There are so many people that inspire me .......

Every blog I go on has some gorgeous projects. Everyone is just so clever and has their own style.

Carly said...

I have also linked a blog called Make It Colourful. Zoe is the owner of this online store and blog and has gorgeous images. She is a fellow Aussie and I think her talent for drawing and colouring is amazing. I have almost as many of her digis as I do Tiddly Inks ... almost LOL.

Jenée said...

I have linked my friend's blog, and have discovered she has made the very first comment here. Bonnie is a talented, creative lady who can see all kinds of possibilities in objects. She has inspired me to do more and try more with my crafts. She is my inspiration.

Dawn Frost said...

I put my stamping buddy Glenda in spot #20. 3 years ago Glenda came to my craft classes and did cards that I created for class. She coloured them exactly like I had, basically making a duplicate card. She is now on two design teams and creates the most gorgeous cards! She has passed her teacher and I learn just as much from her as she learns from me. We stamp together every Friday and she inspires me to be a better crafter!

Emmy said...

Nr 21 zarahs lovely blog under a paper moon always get my mojo flowing!

Bilyana said...

Definitely Prairie Paper & Ink Blog. It is absolutely amazing <3

Jennifer Scull said...

I am another who has linked Melissa Phillip's blog Lilybean's.... she is everything I would love to be in my crafting. her paper choices, use of the most amazing embellies, and the fact that she always stays true to her vintage style brings such awe and admiration in me. :)

this is such a wonderful idea!

I have linked up three wonderful artists-Paula Williamson of Paper Possibilities; for she is my coloring hero. I am always in awe of her images! And Michele Boyer of Paper Cuts; endlessly talented and very creative! Her layout and paper combinations are fantastic! Last but not least, Amy Sheffer of Pickled Paper Designs; absolutely drool worthy work. Stunning!

Oh so many more people inspire me but these are my standouts today!

Stephanie said...

I have to say that Bev {All the things I Love} inspires me. I love her projects, her copics coloring...just about everything!

Zarah said...

First of all: Emmy - thank you, love!! You inspire me, too!! ♥
Second: what a fun idea!! A lot of the people who inspire me have already commented themselves (like Emmy) or been mentioned in the comments/links, but I added four. I could go on, but I picked four of my ABSOLUTE faves:
Kristy, Danni, Lilith and Marinette. All AMAZING and versatile artiskst that need to be seen more.

Now, I'm gonna go through the linklist and get my mojo dancing! :D

Elaine aka Quixotic said...

Just shared one of my colouring inspirations - Jane Allen of Jane's Box of Colours.

danni reid said...

Z, there are no words, it is such an amazing compliment coming from you, thank you so, so much my friend.

Marinette said...

Zarah: Merci beaucoup my sweet friend♥♥

I am inspired by so many wonderful gals out there, but these two come to mind:
The Spotted Chick: her creations are always so pretty! They are never "over done".
http://thespottedchick.blogspot.com/2012/02/thats-krafty-thursday-58.html
And:
The Wired Angel: She always has such pretty cards displayed and her style can vary. Love her work too.

Crafty Cath said...

The first blog I started to follow was Amy Sheffer's (Pickled Paper Designs). That was years ago and to this day I always find inspiration from her. She makes the most awesome cards. http://pickledpaperdesigns.blogspot.com/2012/02/secrets.html

KyMom said...

My favorite crafter just left you a note above -- that's how I found your site! Her name is Crafty Cath ans she has colored your images on her Stampin Bella blog. (She is on the DT). I get so much inspiration from her. Her cards are gorgeous!
http://craftycath.blogspot.com/
ps. I had no idea you had digis. I'll definately be buying some. LOVE your images!!!

Mad Moose said...

I've nominated Mina - better known in blogland as Pinkpuds. Her work is always beautiful and she often thinks outside the box. Her cards challenge me to try a new technique or style and she's so generous with her advice and feedback.

Jenn Borjeson said...

I had to link up to one more person - Donna Mundinger (#38). Donna's creative artwork ranges from stunningly gorgeous to whimsical and cute all the way to creepy and gory... and I love them all!!!!!!! :)
