MEET THE CREW!
Birgit's Mixed Media Art Crew is here to inspire you! Every Wednesday one crew member will share a new, colorful and fabulous project and give you lots of inspiration on how to use the products that I design for Carabelle Studio. Enjoy!
Hi there! Nice to meet you. My name is Femke Kokke and I am a mom of three kids (11, 4 and 4) and I am a freelancer in youth care and helping adults with psychic problems.
Besides being a provider, I also am a scrapaholic :) I love scrapbooking, I really do. I started Scrapbooking in 2003. First I did not use any paint at all. But since 2 years that changed dramatically into using Mixed Media like almost all the time.
Suddenly I love paint, stamps, gesso, stencils and doing all kind off techniques.
So I now love Mixed Media Scrapbooking and am very happy to be a part of Birgit’s team and creating nice stuff to show you!

It is I...Hermien, also known as Sproet (Freckles)
Who am I? On my blog I introduce myself as:
Woman, married, humor, challenges, creative, practical, MS&MG (both 'neurological challenges' in my life) , and so much more..! Since last year Puck and Panter (two cats) joined our household, so now we are officially employees ;-) (Unfortunately Puck recently died).
I love to get my hands dirty (sometimes very ;-)) making cards, stamping, painting, gelliprinting , just go with the flow.. ! I am very honored to be a member of Birgit's Mixed Media Crew! Hope you enjoy!

Karin Van Den Broek
My name is Karin van den Broek and I live in the middle of the Netherlands with my partner and 19 year old daughter.
I started making cards about 6 years ago and one thing led to another and now I can't imagine a life without stained fingers.
I love to experiment with ink, paint, stamps and templates and I mostly use bright colors. I love Birgit’s work and I’m honored that she asked me as a crew member.

My name is Linda Brun, I am a mixed media artist with great passion for artjournaling and monoprinting. I live in Sandnes, Norway with my husband, grown up son and dog. I’m a graphic designer working full time as an artist through mixed media collages and paintings, working from my home based studio. Teach hands on mixed media classes and work as a creative inspiratory when asked. I also try to fit my mixed media art in to bookbinding, scrapbooking and sewing.
I love diving in to art technique books and take art classes with other artists. I’m always on the look for new art techniques and tools to try and I find myself working with various kind of mediums and colors. Right now I’m in to Acrylics, Gelliplate, masks, scissors, Gel Medium. Tomorrow might be different and that is what I like with my creative journey. I’m so happy to be a member of this fantastic crew and can’t wait to get started.

My name is Marsha Valk and I’m a craft professional from the Netherlands. My current crafty adventures started in 2003 when I discovered scrapbooking, but I’ve been a creative soul all my life and I’ve been interested in art history and modern art for as long as I can remember.
Right now I’m focused on mixed media, monoprinting, collage and crafts in general. I love colour, I love to make ‘something’ out of ‘nothing’ and I can’t wait to inspire you with ideas to create with Birgit’s fabulous designs!
I’m a regular contributor to the Gelli Arts blog.
