We have more inspiration from the Design Team this week. I have made a card using Brushos for the background and main scene.All details can be found on my blog.
Magda has created a very pretty floral card, using a beautiful image, and delicate repeat stamping in the background.
We are taking the opportunity this week to meet another member of the Design Team, it is Anne's turn to talk about herself, and to introduce herself to you, so that you can get to know her a little bit better.
Initially I worked as a Clinical Scientist for over twenty years. Unfortunate circumstances then required me to work from home whist caring for a family member. Following this, I spent several years working as a Pharmacy Dispenser and running an Ebay shop selling beads and craft supplies. I now work for myself, as a Textile Artist and jewellery maker. it's never too late to change career direction.
I have been crafting ever since I can remember, everything from paper crafting, painting, sewing, beading, wirework, embroidery, weaving, knitting and crochet. Recently I have taught myself to spin my own yarns too. I am never bored!
It is so difficult to pick a favourite craft. I have always loved experimenting and trying out new things. Stamping and die cutting are relatively new techniques for me. Until around four years ago, I had never even heard of die cutting. Now I have a stamp and die obsession- tee hee.
There is so much that inspires me, from nature, flowers, landscapes, the sea, textures, and architecture. I love vintage and shabby chic styles, but also Indian, ethnic, oriental, Medieval and fantasy.
The past year has been an amazing journey for me. A year ago I was privileged to join the Design Team for Chocolate Baroque. I get so much pleasure designing samples with their fabulous stamp range. Later in 2015, I was also lucky enough to join the Design Team for Beads Direct. Amazingly, I have just been given a position with the Tattered Lace Design Team, helping them to create TV show samples. I can hardly believe it. I feel so blessed to be given the opportunity to work with such talented people, and to be given the chance to share and inspire others with their own creativity.
We will be back next week with another post, and more projects to share with you. If you have any questions, and cannot see the answers on the blog pages, please send us a private message using the contact form located at the very end of this post; you will see it after the comments section.
