Featured Blogger – Olga Kravets

We are inspired by the world around us and love to showcase new and exciting artist, designers and crafters and our guest designer series is a great way to inspire our Crew as well as each one of you to try something different, show off a new style or help you think outside of your creative box, so from time to time we like to invite crafters to be our Guest Designer/Blogger for a month to challenge us to see things in a different way and so that we may learn more about our products through the eyes of a new designer. This month we have invited Olga Kravets. Mixed Media is big these days and we love that so many of our basic products are perfect for simple and clever crafty projects.

 

Where are you from?

I´m from Ukraine but now I live inn Moscow with my family


How would you describe your design style?

I love mixed media, but also trying to do work in different directions, such as for kids and projects paper, and of course freestyle


How long have you been creating?

I create since 2012, but I had a big break and only two years ago I dedicated myself to the beloved

 

What is your go to product right now? 
My favorite product right now is texture paste!

 

Do you have a signature touch you like to include in all your pieces?
No, I think that now it is not. But I dream about it and confident that soon it will be

 

What advice would you give to someone who gets in a creative slump? 
Rest is the best assistant. To take a short break and get away.  Need get bored and distracted, then again want to do what you love (or something else)

 

What is the oddest inspiration you have used for one of your projects? 
Probably it was a meat grinder! I loved the details, then I dismantled it, looked and used parts of it in my project!

 

Tell us one thing that people might not know about you. 
I love sports and crossfit, I love the large weight and iron! But I’m small and very vulnerable

 

How often do you create? 
I try to do something every day, but also take breaks to relax and to get inspiration

 

Do you jot down your ideas before you do them or do you create as you go?

No, I never think through in advance, the project is created on the table, but before, I always have the idea. Something inspires me and I want to make a new project

Olga made this fantastic project using Tattered Angels Mists and 7gypsies Architextures.

Hello friends!
It’s a great honor for me to be a guest designer in such a creative and strong team! I was in love with products from the Canvas Corp Brands. I dedicated my project to inspiration. It inspires, fascinates and envelops us. It can not be kept, even if we tie wings. And let for each artist of inspiration will be a lot! Thank you for the invitation and let your day be excellent!

Please visit Olga in social media! She makes the most fantastic projects.

I live with my partner and my two children, in a small village the North of Sweden. I work as a Intensive Care Nurse (with Cardiology as speciality). My "style" is colourful and playful. I often use a lot of papers and embellishments. I try to have the photo in focus, and to reflect the feeling of the photo in the layout. I also makes cards and altered projects. If I would call my style something - well maybe Playful Punk Chic? (if i do a romantic layout, I can´t help giving it a playful twist...)
