Guest Designer - Lucyna Marynowska

It is time to introduce our Guest Designer for the Winter Blues challenge.  Please say hello to Lucyna (a.k.a. Lula) Marynowska who was the Top Pick from the In The Kitchen challenge.  Lula can be found on her blog At Lula's.

Hi Everyone! My name is Lucyna Marynowska aka Lula. Let me tell you all at Frilly and Funky I am absolutely delighted and honoured to be a guest designer here, this is such a talented design team!

A little about me:

I come from the north of Poland. Sixty, retired widow, mum of two grown up boys and a happy grandma. I started my crafting journey 7 years ago as a card maker and immediately became an addicted paper-lover. After my husband's death it was crafting what helped me to conquer the pain. I enjoy creating anything from cards to altered art and love to experiment with various types of mediums. I am keen on colour and texture and I always try to find new ways to express myself. I love challenges to spark my creativity and making crafty friends all over the world makes me very happy.

For the current theme "Winter Blues" I have prepared a wall hanger. I was inspired by the look of my bedroom window in frosty winter time. I have used lots of mixed media stuff to make this piece and emphasized its texture. Starting from various shades of blue paints, inks and mists, through shiny waxes to sparkling gems. With a little help of chipboards, die cut and resin pieces I was able to recreate the moody, cold winter scene.

You can follow the steps I am sharing on my blog. Hope you like my project!

With Best Regards

Lula xx
