About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 16 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

Creative Blog Hop

I was touched and very honoured when I found I had been nominated to do this blog hop by Sandra Wright....Thank you so much Sandie, your kind words really did humble me.
This is a continuous blog hop every monday with a host of inspirational bloggers taking part
There are a few questions that I've been asked...so I'll do my best to answer them....

1. What am I working on....
At the moment I am working on a few projects (nothing new there lol) I always have more than one thing on the go.  Ideas and inspiration hit me and when they do i just have to start them.  I currently have a few projects in progress for Rhedd's Creative Spirit Challenge Blog.  This is actually Sandra's baby and I was very honoured to be asked to be one of her fabulous DT members.  I am also very lucky to be a Guest DT for Fernli Designs for the Month of September.  I have 3 project to make and have completed 1 and the other 2 are on my craft desk at the moment. I can't wait to share them with you all.

2. How does my work differ from others in the my genre....
I don't know if my work does differ, everyone has their own style and can add their own twist to project.  I am told that I have my own style which is easily recognisable, even my kids can tell if I show them a pic of something whether or not I made it so I suppose I must have my own distictive style........ it's been Becca'd lol.  I love vintage/shabby chic with a twist of grunge thrown in. 

3. Why do I create what I do.....

I just create whatever comes to me.  I don't know if I ever know exactly how a project will turn out? Sometimes things just happen at my craft table and its a case of well there you have it!!  I love altered art, the freedom of just letting go and going where the art takes you.

4. How does my creative process work....
Well sometimes like I said above it just happens.  I do find that a brows through pinterest or blogs will inspire me to come up with something or ideas grow and evolve from something I have seen and I thing I would like to try that.  Quite often though a project can take a very different turn from where it started out.  I think most creative people would say that though.  I also believe that you have to just go with it and let it take you, don't give up until you reach that point where you sit back and look and say...... that's it, its done :-)

Firstly I would like to nominate Becka Tyrell .....who I got to know through a craft group we were both in a few years ago. I have always loved Becka's creativity, her use of colour is just so fantastic and always just works so so well.  That must be her Interior Design skill in there a bit I think :-).  I have loved watching her work evolve and love seeing her new style in Altered Art too. l admired her work, and she has even tried to teach me how to use Copic markers and promarkers keeping me right on my blending techniques.

Please visit Becka's Blog:  http://cosylittlebutton.blogspot.co.uk/

Secondly I would like to nominate Stephanie Rafos....who I got to know through YouTube (please click here to visit Steph's YouTube channel).  I love all of Stephs creative cards.  She is a master at Scene cards and I love seeing how she puts them all together and creates such clever cards that anyone would just be over the moon to receive.  Steph too is someone who's Copic colouring is second to none.

Thank you all for stopping by and taking the time to read my answers.  I look forward to seeing Becka and Steph's answers too, and thank you once again for my nomination Sandie xx

Great Big Huge Hugs
