Please say hello and welcome to our Guest Designer for our Winter Hues challenge. Sara Emily Barker of sarascloset was the Design Team's top pick from the Bountiful Harvest challenge.
"Frilly and Funkie was one of the first challenge blogs I stalked, even before I started blogging. It took me a while to gather up the courage to enter the challenges, but I have been inspired by the talented Design Team over the years. I am so honored and totally thrilled to be asked to Guest Design along side this amazing team for this challenge!
I live in Wilmington, NC, which is on the South Atlantic coast of USA. The weather here is temperate in the winters, and we pretty much have the three remaining seasons of hot summer weather. Great for me, because I love being active outdoors, and my first love is gardening. I draw a good deal of my inspiration from nature, and I consider myself to be a curious crafter. I love to look at something and try to figure out how it came to be and love to see how different products react with one another. So much of my creativity comes out of experimenting with products I already own and just playing. I feel most comfortable with vintage grunge, but I love trying new styles."
"Suzz's ' Winter Hues' challenge theme was perfect for me, because I love to work in blues, and with our recent cold snap here in the south, I was inspired to make a winter scene on canvas, complete with a raging snow storm and a warm cabin in the woods. My tiny canvas measures just three and one half by five inches and is covered with Tim Holtz Melange Tissue Wrap, colored with Distress paints in blues, and stamped with Tim Holtz images.
On top of all that is Distress Crazing Medium, crayons, Remnant rubs, glitter and embossing powder to get this snowy scene.
This is a little different than what I usually make, so I hope you like it! I would like to thank Suzz for her inspiring challenge theme and the entire Frilly and Funkie team for having me here today as their Guest Designer!"
