I was nominated by KATE from Sparkle Tart (you can see her post HERE!) and asked to answer the following questions and share some other artists that inspire me. I usually don't do this sort of thing, but I thought why not do something a little different and share the love about some of my favourite peeps.
1. What am I working on?
For me, it's always cards, cards and more cards. Using Copics, stamps, dies and all my favourite things! :)
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I don't know how to really answer that - I guess I tend to use very clean and crisp lines and of course I love colouring, particularly florals since they are a big inspiration for me.
3. Why do I write / create what I do?
Basically I just like to create pretty things and this is a way to explore my creative side, make things and not have them fill up my house because I can give them away! Between work and children, I find taking time out to get lost colouring and creating is like a little oasis in my day.
4. How does your writing / creating process work?
Mostly, it's find an image that I like or want to colour and go from there. What colours do I want to use? What paper will match that? What layout will work with this image? Clean, Shabby or Bold? I never really know until I choose the image first and just let it flow from there.
I am supposed to share 3 artists and have them share three blog artists that they admire. Sadly I only have 2 who are able to join in with me at this time, but what amazing artists they are!!

Her use of fun bold colours are so fabulous and yet she also creates the most amazing elegant cards using soft subtle colours as well. It doesn't matter what style she decides to use, she combines beautiful colouring, yummy ribbon and beautiful embellishments and she always ROCKS it!! Add to this amazing talent, that she is such a sweet person, and I'm so thankful for her friendship! Hop on over to Out to Impress and be impressed!!!
