Read on to learn more about this amazing artist and see what you can win from her shop :)
Are you a self-taught artist?
Pretty much. I've never been to any creative classes or scrapbooking parties but I have seen a lot of other people's work. I usually do trial and error to mimick a look I like or a style I come up with all my own. I also get a lot of inspiration at craft store. They have really wonderful items on display and I always think "I can do that".
What is your favorite way to learn new techniques, books, YouTube videos, having someone else teach you first?
I mostly like to learn by trial and error again. I just figure out how to do something in my own unique way.
Where do you tend to find most of your inspiration?
Actually, just browsing through craft stores or down the scrapbooking isle. I tend to see items I like and just put them together. Whether it's coordinating papers or new items on display I just find something I like and try to do it myself.
Do what makes you happy! I think that's true in life and in the life of etsy. If you build a business around something you don't like doing you will get burned out and frustrated. As long as you enjoy what you do you will always be motivated.
