Crafty Moments Art Prints & Postcards from Kata Kiosk

Crafty Mason Jar Illustrated Art Print by Kata Kiosk

I am completely taken with Crafty Moments, the newest collection from Lithuania-based Kata Kiosk. The collection, which was inspired by the unique mix of crafty tradition and modern vibes found in Lithuania, features illustrated art prints and greeting cards in Kata Kiosk’s wonderful, trademark style. I love Kata’s amazing ability to inject pattern into her work, and you can find it everywhere in this collection, from beautiful, lacy cables in a wintry trolley scene to lovely, floral floor coverings in a shoe selfie.

Here’s a peek at the designs in the collection, all of which are available as both A3 art prints and A6 postcards, and be sure to head over to the Kata Kiosk shop to check out the full collection!

3D Paper Sculpture by Lorraine Nam

3D Paper Sculpture by Lorraine Nam

Lorraine Nam initially blew my mind back in 2010 with her incredible, intricate cut paper artwork. Seriously, if you love paper cut art, you’ve gotta check it out. More recently, she has taken a more three dimensional approach to paper, and she’s blowing my mind all over again.

Lorraine strives to make her work fun, bright, and happy, and she has most certainly hit it out of the ballpark on all three counts. I am absolutely lovin’ her 3D work, which is so realistic and detailed that it’s sometimes difficult to tell that it’s made of paper.

This series of monochromatic, 3D paper scenes that Lorraine created for the Racked holiday gift guide is just amazing, and spotting all of the special little elements and details puts yours truly in paper-loving heaven. I hope that it has the same effect on you!
