Guest Designer - Barbetka K

Today we introduce our Guest Designer, Please say Hello to Barbara from Paper passions and more... 

.




I love to create scrapbooking projects from cards, exploding boxes to mixed media projects. I have no favourite style, but most of my projects are vintage and altered. If you would like to see my works, please come visit my blog! 









Here I have used the Crafts Dreamy Mood Board as inspiration to create my design. 
















This is a glass container for lemons, which I changed into a lantern. I altered this using white Gesso, blue-grey chalk paint, bitumen, solvent, varnish and crackle varnish and glitter. Next, I adhered a cutout of a girl with butterfly wings, she is from the Stamperia Blue stars collection. I also added a quote, as I think these words are suitable for the beginning of the New Year! 



Please do check out Barbetka's beautiful altered creation, we'd love for you to come back and share your project for the challenge.

The Mood Board challenge can be found HERE and is open until 11:55pm GMT on February 12th.

Our Anything goes challenge can be found HERE and is open until 11:55pm GMT on January 22nd.

A fond farewell to Christina









Hello everyone, today we say a fond farewell to our Crafts Dreamy DT member Christina  who has stepped down from the team. She has given us some amazing designs and I am thankful to have had the opportunity to work with her, not only is she super talented, but has now also become a dear friend. 








For the past eight months I've been on this incredible journey with other talented ladies on the Crafts Dreamy Design Team. Each month we'd have a challenge based on Mood Boards which inspired us to create and others to join in the fun. Here are my top five designs. 
























Even though, I enjoyed being apart of this design team, with the other talented dreamies, and especially Zowie, unfortunately it’s time for me to step down. It was a tough decision to make and I’ll miss you all. This DT gave me courage to step out of my comfort zone and grow with my creativity. The reason being, I need to take more time for myself, and my work load is getting heavier due to different seasons. I had a bit of a break to do some Christmas crafts, which I do most of my crafts during the winter months. I may join a challenge here or there, but for now I have to focus on myself.
A huge thank you to Zowie for giving me the opportunity to be apart of this amazing team.

Thank you so much for stopping by and keep on creating.
Christina
