So I missed doing my Friday Feature yesterday - because I really wasn't feeling good enough to be able to think enough to put this together! So I put it off for today so that I could do a good job with it - because this is an awesome store!
1. What type of art work do you do?
I make Journals mostly. I also make stuff IN journals (aka journal art), dabble in softies & card holders.
2. How did you get started doing art work?
As a kid I remember making stuff out of 3x5 cards and regular printer paper - mostly armies of origami jumping frogs, furniture & armadas of paper airplanes.
3. Do you do any other crafts?
Yes! I sew, paint with watercolors & acrylics, draw, collage, sculpt (with polymer clay),
4. What's your favorite piece in your shop right now?
I really like my book necklaces - all of them.
5. Where did you come up with the idea for your book necklaces?
One day I saw a beautiful accordion book that you could slide into a metal frame & hang it around your neck... I fell in love & instantly thought of ways to incorporate that idea into my own bookbinding.
Since I like using polymer clay for book covers - it's sturdy and you can do just about anything with it - I decided to try and make my own using a coptic stitch. The first few came out so well I made ten & five sold the next week. Figured I had something there so I made a bunch more!
It helps that I have a soft spot for tiny cute things...
