Good morning everyone!
Don't you just love Blogland? It never ceases to amaze me how crafters from every walk of life and all parts of the globe come togeher to share their interests and passions here! This morning we have a post from Margik who was not only the winner, but chosen as a Top 3 too! Margik is here sharing her gorgeous make with us today...
Hello everyone, my name is Mar but I am known as Margik in the blog. I am from Spain. I am extremely honoured to be a Guest Designer at Country View Challenges this month and thanks so much to Chris and the team for this opportunity.
I enjoy spending time creating paper craft items, mixed media artwork, art journaling, mini-albums and altered projects from time to time. I also love painting and drawing. I wouldn’t say I have a particular style, only that it is very versatile. I like to try different things all the time, and I am always looking for new techniques. Whilst mixed media and scrapping is my number one hobby at the moment, I am also very passionate about music, literature, cinema, photography… love art in all its forms. I like to enter challenges and it’s definitely a pleasure to share. http://margikscrap.blogspot.com.es/
‘Simply scenic' is a favourite theme of mine because I absolutely adore to do illustrations. So I decided to create a sea scene with a (22x22 cm) cardstock frame and the fabulous Lynne Perrella stamp as focal point of the topic.
I used acrylic paint and Crackle Medium DecoArt, crackle paint (Rock Candy Distress), a mix of paints and sprays (Archival, Distress, Adirondak), stamps, stencils, texture paste and embossing powder (Ranger), Distress markers, and some embellishments. I hope you like it!
Absolutely stunning Margik, so very creative - thank you!
Has Margik's make prompted some additional lateral thinking for you? We hope so because we'd like to see what you're all doing and how you define our challenge topic this month!
Have a great weekend,
Chris and the CVC team xxx
