Another week's passed and we're getting close to the finishing line with our challenge 'Vintage'. 3 more days to play so join in! I'm here to welcome another fabulous Star Designer though and I know how excited you get so lets get to it ;)
We had Seth Apter and Marjie Kemper last month. I very much enjoyed Seth's gorgeous vintage art and Marjie's colourful journaling. As you know, mixed media art comes in many forms and styles and today I'd like to introduce....
...who designs for Finnabair, Lindy's Stamp Gang, My Creative Scrapbook, is currently a Video Educator for Blue Fern Studios and in my opinion is perfect for the job, because her shabby chic style is out of this world and the way this girl creates texture and combines them with colour is awesome! So if you like this style Marta has a lot to offer and you can learn a lot from her. I have been Marta's YouTube follower for some time now and absolutely adore watching her work and create her masterpieces. I don't scrapbook, but every time I watch Marta creating one of her layouts I feel like getting my supplies out and play!
Today's post is packed with creative goodness so read on....!
We have a little treat for you! Georgie worked hard and put together a few questions (Thank you, Sweetness!) and Marta kindly answered them specially for you! That's right! An exclusive interview just for you so you can find out a little bit more about Marta. Here it goes....
What inspires you most to create? / Where does your inspiration come from?- will it sound boring if I say EVERYTHING? Well... but this is true. I find inspiration in everyday life, in the music that I hear, in the art of my fellow crafters...
Pinterest... new craft products...colour combos... in challenging myself by creating out of my comfort zone... even my 7 years old daughter inspires me with her ideas!... inspiration is everywhere... I often use my phone to catch my inspiration on the photograph
Do you pre plan your pieces, or are they often the result of just 'going with the flow'?- somehow I always have a vision. There is this picture in my head just for split second...and then it's gone... a picture of finished make. It looks like I know where I am going while creating but that necessary does't mean my finished work will remind of my vision.
What is your favourite medium to work with?- sprays for sure... variety of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays is allowing me to make some spectacular colour combos... working with liquid can create unexpected results and this is what I love the most
Do you have a tool which you couldn't live without?- I don't have a craft tool like that but... I see my phone as my most important tool, does it count? :)
- I treat it as my visual diary
What's your craft space like?- white everywhere, with huge table... lots storage... great big window... it's my heaven, my hideout! ... And it's always messy, but it's controlled mess. I feel that my craft space must be calm and relaxing... being in opposition to my very busy head full of colours and ideas!
Do you have a favourite colour combo?- probably rusted teal or anything with black ;)
What is your favourite creation to date?- ooooh so hard to pick only one! Let’s say a series of my mini mixed media canvases
If you wish to see how I created some of those canvases please be sure to check out my YouTube channel here :) You will find many mixed media video tutorials.
But... those who know me can tell that my biggest love is art journaling. Freedom of creating in journals... oooohh this is what I like, no limits, no restrictions, no rules... page after page.
For this occasion, to say thank you for having me here I made a journal page. You can see my mixed media background using sprays.
I also created a full VIDEO tutorial for you guys.
I hope you will enjoy it!
Love, Marta xx
Did I say this post was awesome?! :) I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
I'd like to thank Marta for being a star joining us here today and for creating a special piece for our blog! I do hope you can keep in touch ;) THANK YOU! x
I'd also like to thank you, dear crafty soul out there! I hope you are feeling inspired and can join us for our next challenge which start next Sunday!! Whooohoooo! Can't wait!
Have a great day! Hugs,
