I was very lucky to get Julie Nuttings 'Collage Couture' as a belated birthday pressie and I have to admit on opening the first page was totally hooked!! I have drawn and designed not only Julie's examples but some of my own 'croquis' and dresses!
I made a couple of little ones as practice then went on to making this one using diecut flowers on the background
Just need to practice on mixed media backgrounds - so must learn to be spontaneous and messy!!
Hello, I'm Polly.
I love altered art, cardmaking, ATC's, in fact anything that needs gluing, stamping, inking or cutting is just my idea of heaven!!!!
I am pleased to say that my husband of 7 years is extremely tolerant of my crafts, especially as I tend to spread from one room to another,well aren't all we all a little messy when we're being creative!!
I like to incorporate all kinds of embellishments in my work especially lace, ribbon, butterflies, angels, hearts etc in fact anything pretty and girly. I soooo love pretty and quirky pieces of art. I was lucky enough to see Tim Holtz in the flesh recently - seeing him was just fantastic. It was only a one hour demonstration but its amazing how much inspiration you come away with.
I hope you enjoy my blog
