Hello and a Happy Saturday to everyone!!
We are so glad you stopped by to visit as we share our Saturday Spotlight Designer!!
At high school I went to the Aesthetic Program– textile/fashion. For several years my crafting was focused on sewing – only. When I had finished high school I was so tired of sewing that my brand new sewing machine was left untouched for a long time. I went to college and didn’t find time for bigger craft projects, such as sewing. Eventually I felt the need to craft again. I started painting… with all the left-overs of my nail polish. Since I worked in the care, I couldn’t use nail polish anymore since that would be against the hygiene regulations. I made small paintings (in post-card-sizes) and I found myself enjoying it. Later I purchased actual paint, instead of nail polish. Then it didn’t take me long before I had discovered the world of scrap-booking/card-making with all the different and fabulous papers, digital stamps and other scrap-booking supplies. I found that it suited me perfectly. It wasn’t too time-consuming or demanding. Also I didn’t have to rip more seams (which my sewing projects had often resulted in).
I have actually painted the fairy in my card with nail polish, except for the skin which I painted with ProMarker – Almond. I still like to paint things (and not my nails) with nail polish. Nowadays I purchase nail polish only for card-making. I guess I’m weird that way. The flowers come from the local craft store Pysselmakaren, and so do the leaves in the corners of my card (I have painted them with green and golden acrylic paint). The little ladybird bead comes from Pärlgården. The background is painted with green, blue, purple, golden and orange acrylic paint mixed with soap (the latter is especially important if you want to create the kind of effect that you can see in the photo). The white stone, which you can see on the right side of my card, was found at the beach. I like to incorporate some natural items in my creations. I love the nature (but I have an irrational fear of ants). I live in the deep forests of Sweden, but you can also find me here: http://chasingfabrics.blogspot.com
