Craft the Rainbow Book Art + Sneak Peeks

Craft the Rainbow Book Club ArtworkWe shamelessly chose Craft the Rainbow as this month’s book club book. How could we not?! It’s a pretty great book if you ask me. The cherry on top? Illustrator and artist extraordinaire, Lisa Congdon created the printable book art! It’s amazing, no? “The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most” by John Ruskin. Words to live by! Lisa Congdon is also quoted in the pink chapter of the book so you’ll have to check it out!

Since the virtual book tour has come to a close, the launch party is over, and you can now all get your hands on a copy, we wanted to talk about some of our favorite projects within the book. Each of these projects has a story behind its creation and some of them make for great stories though at the time I wasn’t laughing so much. Ha! Turns out, the making of a book, especially 40 full crafts and scenes, is a lot of work and a lot of logistical organization so there were a few hiccups along the way. Let’s check them out!

Check out the sneak peaks of the book and download this month’s artwork!

Craft the Rainbow blog tour

The day has come! Craft the Rainbow is officially out in bookstores and online book sellers across the world! Ye haw!

I’ve been incessantly shouting it from the rooftops and I’m sure you’re probably thinking, “Brittany, tone it down, we got it”, but, you see folks, we’re just getting started with the colorful celebrations. We didn’t work our rainbow-craftin’ heinies off for nothing! So I’m going to send it out into the universe: I’d love to see it on tons of best-seller lists! There, I said it. If we’re honest, I’ve never actually seen a craft book on any best-selling list in general book categories, but why not start now, huh?! Could it happen? I don’t know! But I’d love to find out We are currently the #1 best-seller on Amazon’s Paper Craft list so I guess we’re off to a good start.

We’re kicking off the release with a 10 day online blog tour with some of our favorite friends from around the web. They’ll be sharing some tutorial features, remakes of craft projects from the book, sneak peeks of the book, and other exclusive content. Hop on over to see what they are all up to!
