June's Kool Krafter!!

One of the most wonderful things to me about this craft, is meeting new and special people!! And each of us has our own unique style and artful abilities! Obviously, you know that I have a 'cutesie' style that often features lined images, lotsa layers and embellishments. Others prefer elegant or contemporary or simple styles. Well this lady I'm going to introduce you to has a style all her own!!

Heather Robinson is not only a sweet person, but also an amazing artist! I asked her to be my first 'Kool Krafter' to showcase her collage-y style which is so very different from my own. She does some amazing ATCs and altered items as well as oh so creative cards!! Be sure to stop by her very new blog, Creative Solace, and check out her amazing artwork!!

My name is Heather Robinson and I confess that I was a complete failure at
art in school. In fact, I "did my time" in obligatory art classes in
elementary school and gave it up as a lost cause. I was, however, always
interested in design and colour and took courses in home decorating, art
history and clothing design in high school and university. Then 15 years
ago I discovered rubber stamping and I thought I was in heaven. I collected
them with fervour, took classes wherever and whenever I could and actively
participated in online swaps and exchanges. About 3 years ago I first
attempted collage and it felt like coming home to me. Most recently I have
begun to dabble in mixed media and altered art. My recent obsessions
include altering board books, round robin altered journal projects and
beeswax collage. I certainly have no shortage of books that are crying to
be altered as I am a librarian by profession. Art truly is a solace for me.

Love your choice of "guest artist".
Like that you chose someone a little outside of your style.
