Hello and welcome to Crew Member Saturday. Crew Member Saturday is new on the blog. Every first Saturday of the month you will find an inspiring project by one of BMMAC guest designers and we are kicking of the year with DeeDee!
If you don't know DeeDee's work then check it out HERE, where you will find the bios of all the 2018 Crew Members and the links to all their social media!
For her first post DeeDee created a beautiful art journal spread. I love the organic feel of DeeDee's projects and her use of black and white combined with the contrast of strong colors! I can't wait to get my charcoal and gesso out to play with!
Hiya folks! DeeDee here today with my first Guest spot on the Creative Crew and I am so excited. I’ve been a longtime fan of Birgit’s and this team is made of some brilliant people! I find myself very lucky to be next to them.
Today I’m sharing a mini art journal spread with you via video. I used two of Birgit’s stamp sets : Leafs & Stitched Mixed Media Background.
I had a load of fun familiarizing myself with these delightful stamps. They are FULL of everything that makes my mark maker heart happy… stars, stripes, dots, circles, music notes, text, numerals… and so much more. Here’s a video about my process:
And here are some more close-ups:
