Artist Feature - Alison

Today I'm honoured to have lovely Alison as my guest. 
I met Alison last November. She is lovely person and very talented!
I love her projects!  Below you will find a few words from Alison and her amazing projects.

Here you will find her blog.


Hi, my name is Alison, aka Craftytrog. I live in Kent, on the outskirts of London, with lots of lovely countryside around me which I love, but also near to the wonderful art galleries, concert venues and other delights of London.

I have been crafting since I was little, starting with knitting, crochet & cross-stitch, then a few years ago I discovered rubber stamping, and now it's all about ink, paint and mixed media.

I first discovered Magda's gorgeous stamps back in November, when I met this lovely lady at a class. My vast stamp collection now includes 'Agatha Heart' and 'Agatha Crown', and here are some artworks that I have created with them...

This is a journal page spread that was started at the class where Magda and I met.
Magda's friend Karen let us play with Magda's 'Nina'. I have finally added a few finishing touches to it! Lol! Blue features rather a lot in my art, it's my favourite colour.

Here's a collage style card that I made in December 2014, featuring 'Agatha Heart'.
I used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint, and the red dots were stamped with a piece of lego. I love to use red with my blue!

And finally, here's the January page that I made for Kate Crane's Art Journal Calendar Challenge. On this page, I featured 'Agatha Crown', and used Fresco Finish Paint and a splat stencil by The Artistic Stamper.
Again, lots of blue! It goes with every colour! :-)

Thank you dear Magda for featuring my art on your blog, and thank you all for visiting. I hope that I've inspired you a little.

Tomorrow I will be back with my art journal pages.
