Welcome to today's Guest Designer, Ingrid !

Today we are welcoming Ingrid of Ingrid's Crafts Corner as today's Guest Designer. Ingrid was chosen by the DT as the winner of the 'Happy, Happy, Happy' challenge. Let's move on to hear from Ingrid !


I'm Ingrid Kristina V; a card-maker, an amateur yet enthusiastic artist and an explorer of all artistic :) If you visit my blog you will find anything from cards, journalling, fun tutorials, results of my experiments and wild ideas, but mainly mixed media projects. I love creating abstract art and mixed media is my most go to when I create. There is nothing more satisfying that creating various textures and patterns and adding colour with a dash of grunge. I tend to create rather organic patterns and love using anything naturally aged. Fabric and other materials are so much fun too! I also run a mixed media challenge blog and am a Designer for UK craft magazine Simply Cards and Papercraft.


I got very excited when I found out what the theme was. Summer is my favourite season. I love the warmth, the sun and the sea, the summer holidays, I love how everything comes alive and sparkles and shines... what on earth I am doing in London I have no idea... I would love to live somewhere warm. My card is very much inspired by summer seaside holidays... when I think of summer holidays I think of our house in the Long Island, Bahamas, the gorgeous white sands, shells and sparkly turquoise sea... the sea shells on this card were found in the sand on Long Island.



I do hope you like the card. I shall look forward to reading your comments for sure and can't wait to see what you will make for this fabulous challenge! A big thank you to Linda, Sue and the oh-so talented team for inviting me to share my project here with you today! I’m very honoured indeed!

Have a wonderful day!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous and definitely reminds me of the Caribbean cruises we have been on and all the beach shore excursions we did. The water is so blue there and shells are easy to find on the beautiful white sand beaches so this card depicts that perfectly. So glad you could join us at Guest Designer and share this beauty.
    Hugs!
