Welcome to the fourth edition of Feature Friday! This new weekly series will feature fellow cardmakers and paper artists whose work I admire. When I'm not physically in my craft room creating, you can often find me on Pinterest or Instagram just oohing and aahing over the works and talents of other artists in this industry. I can sit for hours "pinning" and "liking" images and daydreaming about all the cards they have inspired ME to create. I have formed friendships with many of these wonderful people and it's their constant support, encouragement and sharing that reminds me of how much I love this hobby. I hope by starting this new series that you will appreciate the wide variety of talent in this field and that I can introduce you to some of the designers that I continuously fangirl over.
Today's Feature Friday artist is Farhana Sarker. I first "met" Farhana on Instagram and she was one of my most supportive followers. I love her fun and whimsical cards that are filled with so much detail. Farhana is on the DT for Newton's Nook and Honey Bee Stamps and I love seeing what she creates with their products. But, what I enjoy even more is that we took many of our conversations outside the realm of cardmaking and I learned more about her Muslim faith, living in the Pacific North West, that she's a very talented baker and that she's also a mom of two little ones but still finds the time to craft and bake! I'd love to know how she does it because I don't have children and I can't seem to ever find the time!
Let's take a look at some of Farhana's work:
I like that Farhana creates cards celebrating her religion and uses her voice and platform to raise awareness about social events and injustice.
Farhana is just one of the many artists whom I admire and with this new weekly series, I look forward to sharing more of the people who inspire ME and why. Please click on the images above for more details or visit Farhana on her blog, Facebook, or Instagram.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative weekend!
