last weekend I was in heaven, I visited Creativeworld in Germany. It is exhibition like CHA2016 just in Europe and also it is international exhibition. I was mainly interested in all scrapbooking, cardmaking and mixed media new products. I was so excited, there will be so many new products during year. I did not took many photos because this exhibition is not about taking photos it is mainly about speaking with people and watching all around.
My number one product for next year will be new paper from french firm CANSON. They made paper specially for Copics and another alcohol markers, I have to say WOW!!! Alkohol markers blends on this paper just amazingly. And they do not bleed through, really you can draw in many layers and there is wall inside paper so colour do not goes through. This paper will be in shops from April.
New products from american firms you could see on youtube. European firms were also very good prepared. There will be many new stamps, colours, papers, embellishments. I saw some new mixed media products, great markers and amazing watercolours.
Longest time I spent by Prima Marketing booth, oh new lines and products are just perfect. New watercolours have got great pigment, I played with them.
There will be new Gorjuss stamps, my favourite images!!! Just wait till June!
French firm Aladine will have new big stamp pads – Izink and also embossing powders in so bright colours. Many new stamps and other.
I had great opportunity to play with all products from Kuretake. I never tried Gamsai watercolours, now I understand why many cardmakers have these at home. They are also perfect! I played with markers, with Wink of stella, Wink of Luna, Calligraphy markers and more.
I spoke with many people, I met some friends. And now I know that next time I need really 3 or 4 days to see everything in detail.
