First and foremost, I am a Crafter!!! I have always had a passion for arts and crafts and am, essentially, self taught – there has been a lot of trial and error over the years, to get me to where I am now.
In this blog, I will be sharing tips and techniques in the form of various projects, from card making to art journaling to mixed media pieces.
Based in the south of England, I gain a lot of inspiration from the sea and countryside surrounding my home and this will feature quite heavily thoughout my pieces. My style varies from day-to-day and is mood dependent; but, usually has a grungy element to it and I am a human magpie – anything shiny – I love it!!
After a few years of not doing anything arty, I got back into crafting through Art Journaling, as a way of relaxing at the end of a busy day at work. Things just spiraled from there and I started quilting and making home decor items again, as well as making cards and getting hooked on bead woven jewellery.
Whatever you are up to, be happy 🙂
All the best, Gem
