YASLY Letterpress Virtues of Man Prints & Leather Engraving

I’m amazed by these Virtues of Man letterpress prints from YASLY, a Florida based design collective “comprised of fellow musicians, leather craftsman, letterpress artisans, house wives and carpenters”. The imagery in these prints is so powerful and brings to mind Freemason imagery and da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man.

And I’m in complete awe over YASLY’s laser engraved leather pieces. Wow. They’re both sold out, but I just had to include them here.

My Mind’s Eye Blackbird Collection

For a while there, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to find any really cool Halloween scrapbook paper collections, but I guess I started to look a bit early (I’m really trying to get an early start on Halloween crafts this year) because now I’m finding awesome Halloween paper all over the place! My latest discovery is My Mind’s Eye’s Blackbird collection, which features super cute characters and patterns and a great color palette. I know that it’s probably the simplest pattern in the collection, but my favorite has to be Dots. I love the slightly weathered look and how the colors work together in this one.

These screen printed Letter Cards by Beau Ideal, which feature decorative capitals that look like they were just plucked from the forest floor, are so much fun!
