Application for Ike's Art Design Team Call

I've some truly exciting news! One of my favourite digital stamp designers - Ike's Art is looking for people to join her Art Design Team!

My name's Michelle and I'm a lone disabled parent to a 12yr old boy and two 2 crazy mogs. They all keep me happy and laughing, whilst creating art keeps me sane and gives me joy too.  I started up papercrafting three years ago, making cards, then moved to other crafts as well like mini albums, altered art, pocket letters, ATCs, etc, and more recently I've gotten into mixed media and art journelling.

I currently work on 3 Design Teams: - A Inky Mess, Fantasy Crafters and Through the Purple Haze, and I'm a former DT member for Cute as a Button, More Mixed Media and Left of Center. I'm excited to announce I've been asked to be a guest designer for a well known digi designer on 1st October too, so watch this space!

I love working as part of Design Teams, and love the comraderie of working alongside talented artists and colorists, as well as the thrill of creating something to a theme, or using an image supplied. I love the challenge of the blank page and the satisfaction of getting messy with art supplies, and hours going by super fast whilst I work on a project, then the happy feeling when it's done and can be watermarked and uploaded ready for a challenge. I also enjoy interacting with those that enter challenges - I've gotten to know quite a few of the regulars and it's lovely seeing their new makes appear on challenges.

Here are my three most favourite pieces to date:

 I adored working on this - my all time favourite so far. It won first prize over at Ike'sworld Challenges which I was overjoyed about.

This super cute clown was lovely to work with and worked well with patterned papers in the backgroud.

I love dragons, what can I say? And this particular one from Sheepski Designs really captured my heart. 

I shall be keeping my fingers and toes crossed and wish everyone good luck who applies.
