Featured Maker – Art by Maria Lunström

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 Maria Lundström. Art &  crafts is all the rage these days and we love that so many of our basic products are perfect for simple and clever crafty projects.

 

 

Maria´s style is graphic & colorful. Her art has a lot of details and intriguing patterns, and beside on  painting her art can be found on objects like trays, tables, pillows and fabric by the yard. Always with a sense of humor, a big portion of black ink and sparkling colors. Here is a bit about her…

CCB: What advice would you give to someone who gets in a creative slump?

Maria created a piece of art called “The Golden Tree”.

 

“I loved working with the Tattered Angels Mists. I had never tried similar products but truly fell in love with how they work together with my usual Watercolors & Ink. I love the shimmer!!”

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...)
