Recently I was recently reminded of Artist Appreciation Month by Patience Brewster, a designer of handmade Christmas ornaments and gifts and so I was prompted to consider who has been my inspiration. Kristina Werner, or popular as starofmay, is my first inspiration for making greeting cards.
3 years ago, I wanted to make a beautiful handmade card for my husband, which is when I came across Kristina’s channel on youtube. I loved her videos and the way she showed step by step process of making cards, various tools she had used and the perfection with which she finished off a handmade card, have all motivated me. I challenged myself if I can make such cards and implement my ideas with perfection. And that’s how my card making journey had began. I am also inspired by Jennifermcguire, Gayatri Murali, Sanketi, Aga, and the list goes on and on. There were many artists out there; however Kristina Werner has always been on top of my list.
