Hello Everyone , Amanda here ,otherwise known in the blog world as Ink-A-Pink
It is a real honour to be featured as a Guest designer here today. Thank you so much to ALL the Frilly and Funkie team for giving me this wonderful opportunity to share some of my creativity with you all.
I'm a Yorkshire girl ‘born n bred’ living in England's Steel City, Sheffield. From a very young age I have always had a keen interest in anything Arty or Creative whether it be in the 'doing' or the 'viewing'. I have hand painted T-shirts, knitted, sewed, made cards, painted in watercolours and pencil sketched over the years and though I occasionally still let my pencil take a walk along the page or let the paint flow freely from the brush I now spend most of my time crafting making either cards, journal pages or mixed media projects. I began devoting a lot more of my time to crafting in 2011 and started blogging in February 2015 so despite having an arty background I feel my creative journey is only just beginning as I have so much more learning and playing to do! To quote Picasso - 'Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life' - and for me this is never truer!
With the current challenge theme being ‘Enjoy your Embossing ‘ I have altered an empty glass perfume bottle using Wendy Vecchi Faux granite technique . I have also embellished the bottle ( isn’t it cute) with an embossed poinsettia and my ever fave hex nuts .
I do hope you like my embossed bottle and if you wish to see more you are very welcome to pop by my blog.
