CHA Chicago





I'm so excited...I got to attend CHA this year. It was my first show and I was very pleased to see artist who I have only admired from afar...or rather by blog-stalking. I'm posting a few of my favorites. October Afternoon had adorable layouts and their new fall line is going to be so great. The monster papers, stamps and chipboard shapes are just adorable. I was excited to see Tim Holtz in person and see his work up close. Claudine Hellmuth is another collage artist whose work I have admired. Her new brush and paints are going to be so great to work with, so is her adhesive-backed canvas. I also loved the papers and projects at Melissa Frances's booth...so many beautiful works of art. Such great make and takes at Just Rite Stampers and Idea-o-logy as well as Pink Paislee. I'll be back again to share all the cool things I got to make.
