Back before I started papernstitch, I was an artist – a painter to be exact. And since all of my friends were artists too, we were constantly putting shows together and attending each other’s openings, instead of hanging out at bars and getting into trouble. So (obviously) art has always had a big place in my heart. Still does. Which makes today’s 5 Faves that much more special…
Clare Elsaesser is one of my favorite artists. Her paintings are beautiful. And her sewn prints are just as lovely. Tastes Orangey is definitely a shop to bookmark and come back to when you have time to browse (her shop is full of drool-worthy pieces). 15% off! Now through June 29th use the code HONEYMOON at checkout for 15% off.

Sarah Parys’ shop is filled with altered book sculptures, hoop wall art, and (my favorite) embroidered maps.
Coni is a graphic designer living in Barcelona. And her work is one of my favorites for the column I write on Scoutie Girl, Art to Inspire. Each print is screen printed by hand and full of inspiration.
