Dear AALL & Create Followers
I hope you are all staying safe and well at this time.
The American artist Bruce Garrabrandt once said:
"Creativity doesn't wait for that perfect moment; it fashions its own perfect moments out of ordinary ones."
We would like to add to that that sometimes extra-ordinary moments and situations, like our current circumstances, can fashion a space for creativity to flourish. Indeed that creative space can be something important to help us through these unusual times. But whatever the situation, when you are engrossed in creating it is always a perfect moment.
So we have another day of inspirations and another tutorial for you. We do hope that you will enjoy these offerings from our talented designers.
Abs, aka Autour de Mwa, is sending out a daily, inspiration-filled Instagram Live at 7.30 (UK time) on his account @autourmwa

Dutch designer Corrie Herriman is familiar to many of you and her creations always provoke a lot of positivity and admiration. She is a versatile designer who is able to switch masterfully between different styles but always adds her own unique touches. We hope you feel inspired...
The accomplished British crafter Anne Redfern shows us how to be bold with colour to make art with a punch!
Christelle Bille is a talented crafter from France with a great eye for bringing out all the lovliest details in her projects.

Kaz Hall is a queen of vintage style and shows us how light and shade with different tones of brown can create a really stylish look.
Autour de Mwa shows us how choices about colour and compostion go a long way to making a piece work. Here there are touches of bright colours, but they are balanced by white space and natural tones so they are given room to work their magic.
