After much deliberation, I have decided to start a second blog, 'Puddling With Ink and Paper'.
I feel my venture into mediums other than cards should not be on 'Karen Creates Cards', my current blog. My mixed media looks so different from my card style, I just thought they looked very odd together. So, the new journey begins alongside the old one.
The 'Puddling' part of the name comes from my childhood nickname. When I was 3 years old, our next door neighbour named me Jemima Puddle Duck, after the Beatrix Potter character. It was the 'puddling' part that fitted my character, and still does. My mother has called me Puddle Duck, or just Duck, ever since and I am now 60!!
I started into Mixed Media back in 2004. This lasted for about three years until my Quilting business totally took over my life. Back then, I made ATC's, collages and postcards and swapped them with people from all around the world. A lot of fun. I still have folders full of other people's art!!
Here you will find mixed media, and maybe a few shabby and vintage items. My creativity is mostly driven by online challenges simply because the talented designers are so inspiring, the deadlines help to reduce overthinking, and they keep me focused on one thing at a time.
Projects arriving soon.... :-)
