July 2015: Cindy Connell

Hi!

Thanks to whomever asked me to be spotlighted this month! I really appreciate it. 

As my blog says, ‘I’m a creative 43 (actually I’m almost 45) year old that loves to do more crafts than I have room for! I also Love to share what I know to anyone who wants to learn!’ 

I got hooked, as many of you did, when a friend showed me how to use embossing powder and a stamp cleaner.  I don’t mind SOME messy aspects, but the cleaning of stamps and wet ink that never dried were keeping me from this hobby. 

I love techniques!  The more different things I can do with my current supplies the better! 

The Asian theme gives me guidelines to stay within to challenge myself.  I also like the calm feeling that Asian art gives me.  Very soothing in a hectic world! 

I currently use my stamps in card making and art journals.  I have been known to use my stamps in the past on scrapbook pages, fabric and the walls of my home, too 🙂 

Besides stamping, I also like to read, sew, garden and spend time with hubby and puppy (currently a 6 year old Sheltie named Kara) For this honour (Oh yes, I am also a proud Canadian), I decided to finish an art journal page, Asian style! The step-by-step and products used are on my blog: http://connell-crafts.blogspot.ca/

The other projects shown here are my past favourites. 

Hugs to all!
