A group of Designers from the Creative Industry and a monthly Blog Party full of inspiration.
One lucky Blog Hopper will win a fantastic prize (the info is at the bottom of the page) and you'll get a sneak peek into what goes on at the world's largest Craft & Hobby Trade Show. So appropriate for National Craft Month!
This week the Designers are sharing their reviews and photos from the Winter CHA Show and Conference. I wasn't able to attend but checked with a few of the companies that I've worked with in the past to see what new products they introduced at the show. I paint and draw on a variety of surfaces for and these are the new products that I'll be using in my designs this year.
|New Americana Acrylic Paint Colors for 2011|
|Transparent Gloss Enamels|
|SoSoft Fabric Paints|
The SoSoft Fabric Paints are really nice on Table Linens and Baby Clothes. I really like them and wonder how the Fine glitter will work.
|Walnut Hollow Innkeeper Sign|
|Loew Cornell Sketching Set|
I was only able to share new products from the companies that I currently use in my designs after searching for "New Products" on their web sites and following the blog posts of my CHA Designer friends that did attend the show. (disclosure note: I did not get paid for this post)
