Today we are welcoming Sara Emily of Sarascloset as the Guest Designer. Sara Emily was chosen by the DT as the winner of the Raise it Up challenge. So let's move on to hear from Sara Emily !
I’m thrilled and honored to be invited by the talented Design Team to join them this week as Guest Designer! I live near the beach in North Carolina with my husband, teenage twins and 2 kitties. I do all my work out of my tiny, cozy closet; hence my blog name sarascloset, but if things get too large, I move outside or to my garage. My love is upcyclying yard sale finds, but I’ve been dabbling a lot lately in mixed media. I enjoy so many styles and will try anything once—twice if I like it!
Some highlights of my art/crafty “career” include earning an art scholarship in college, selling a bit of my art at a local art store, teaching a number of mixed media classes and being a Design Team member on Anything But Cute Challenge blog.
For my not-yet-framed wall hanging, I decided to try out a few products
and combinations I’ve not yet used. All my layers are home made papers,
and the butterfly is stamped and heat embossed, then colored using
My gold touches come from Perfect Pearls powders, embossing powder, metallic rubs, Gelatos and Stickles. You can see how I put these products to use to “go for the gold” at my blog.
I'm sure you'll all agree Sara Emily's project is beautiful and has provided more inspiration for the current challenge which is a Touch of Gold.
