3. Amanda at Mangle Prints produces wonderful prints using a mangle.
4. Helen at This Crafting Life makes a variety of work including some lovely textile work, and is currently making some interesting work involving printing on glass.

Another addition to the little herd of paper horses. I used a slightly different technique with this one, punching the holes for the paper fasteners with a small hole punch instead of cutting them as I had before, so he seems to be a bit more articulated. I also used some tiny fasteners, I was finding it a bit fiddly trimming the ends off the larger ones so I went in search of some smaller ones and found these, they're actually brads for cardmaking but they seem to work fairly well, though do need to be squeezed a bit tighter for the horse to hold his position if he's being displayed in any way other than lying down.
