This Month

August 2014 issue

Magazine cover: August 2014 issue

Inspiration for parchment designs comes from all quarters and if you turn over the page you’ll find a spectacular piece of work submitted by Julie Roces.

I found similar pieces on her Facebook page and after a quick straw poll, I asked Julie to design one specifically and of course exclusively for the magazine. Worked with a host of Ball tools, the design itself is layered and includes lots of little 3D elements allowing the image to stand out. It’s a very meticulous design too, though don’t let that put you off from re-working it. Of course, I’d be more than happy to see your interpretations, so feel free to email me pictures of your own Sugar Skull.

You’ll find lots more to inspire you this month, including floral themed projects from Bruno Piechota and Gerti Hofman, plus as you will have seen on the front cover, a rather lovely lavender bag from Maggie Byford.

Not to forget Josie Davidson, who is our resident expert behind the Workshop, this month she guides us through Grid Work.

Enjoy the issue.
