Hi I am Zowie, crafting is my passion. I live in the UK with my wonderful children. I started crafting over eight years ago; I have a love for anything vintage and shabby chic, which you'll see a lot of in my artwork. 
I also like working with mixed media and paper collage. Art to me, is a way of expressing yourself and having fun.




Frederique

Hi I am Frederique, Freddie for short. After travelling the world I now live in The Netherlands with my husband and several fur and feather babies.
I started crafting in the summer of 2011 and have been hooked ever since. My biggest influence is Tim Holtz and the distress products. I mainly work on tags and make cards. I am addicted to stamps and embossing powder.




Zahraa

I'm Zahraa, 34 years old from Cairo Egypt, I love paper crafting, stamping, card making, art journaling, mixed media art, junk journal making, mini albums and explosion box album making. I have been crafting since 2012.




Aditi & Sunila

My mother- Sunila Mahajan and me- Aditi Mahajan, started Dots to Lines and our forte is home decor, mixed media, paper crafting and altered art.  A brief background about us :Sunila Mahajan - has a diploma in commercial art, and displays her artworks in various galleries across the world. She has also worked as a Graphic Designer at Hameed Mugal, Kenya. Aditi Mahajan- With a MSc. in Clinical Psychology and Dip. in Special Education, has taken up arts and crafts since school days and also practiced art therapy when working with children with special needs. She took up an art course from School of Visual Arts, New York. 

Crafting, thus has been a part of daily activities mostly in the form of various altered projects, or making gifts. We run a home decor business by the name of Dots to Lines and we handcraft products using techniques of mixed media and decoupage. We are into paper-crafting, layouts, journaling, album making and scrapbooking as well. Our style of art and craft is a fusion of techniques and usage of vibrant colours. We aim to spread joy. We cater to all home decor needs and personalised gifting.




Henriette

Hi my name is Henriette, I'm married and have four great kids. I live in Haugesund Norway. I started scrapping in 2003, but I have always liked to use paper, have made cards, embellished albums, drawn and painted. I like Vintage and Shabby chic style with vintage pictures, lace, flowers, beads, charms and beautiful paper. I also like to try out new folding techniques.
This hobby gives me much pleasure.
 I am looking forward to being a part of the Design Team.



Maryvonne

I am French, I live in Normandy, two hours from Paris and I love my little corner of the countryside with trees, flowers and birds. I'm passionate of scrap, more exactly card making, a little mixed media and home deco. My style of crafting is romantic, shabby chic and vintage. I am married to a wonderful companion that makes the happiness of my life for Forty years and I have a great girl and a little Grandson... and cats! Scrap for me, is an opportunity to create and dream, it is a therapy! I retired in January 2017,and I appreciate all this new free time for my passion! 



Christina 

I'm Christina and I live in Calgary AB Canada. I am married and have an orange and white tabby cat, Colby. I love to watch movies, read thriller novels, go for walks and sit out on the deck in the Summertime. I have been paper crafting for twenty-four years and for the past seven years, exploring the wonderful world of Mixed media. I love being creative, not only is it enjoyable, it is therapeutic. 


Mary
MC Crafts

I have always had a passion for making things, from being a small girl I would watch my Mother knit and sew and as soon as I was old enough she taught be how to knit. I would ask for drawing books for birthdays and Christmas just so I could doodle and draw. I started making cards at school and made more when I got home. Once my children were old enough they helped me to knit and sew and make things. I am enjoying recycling, up-cycling and generally making old, unloved things new and loved again. I always have something to do with crafting and I enjoy whatever I am making, be it a scarf, a card or up-cycling something. 




Priya
Creative Motifs


Helen Keller said, "The best and most beautiful things in life cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." To me, that is Art! 
A graduate in Chemistry, a passionate Bharathanatyam dancer, allured toward the alchemy of art for the past 15 years. 
Dance has taught me that any sense of direction to my future should come out of my own hands. This reflection contributed to engaging my wishes in sketching. I wanted my strokes to speak in this pursuit with a firm belief that Art breathes life into space. The blending of colours in creating works of art has always fascinated me. This curiosity and fascination led me to learn the art of painting. My exposure and training in the field of art and painting has instilled confidence in me to try out many things in life. I believe that Life isn't about finding yourself; Life is about creating yourself.
