Home Grown Guest Designer #3 - SEPTEMBER 2016 FIONA PALTRIDGE

If you follow my blog you will know I am a very big Fan Girl for Fiona Paltridge.  So when I asked her to be the #3 guest design for Scrap the Girls and she said "yes", I was so freaking excited.

If you have been living under a rock and you don't know who Fiona is then here's a bit about her from the lady herself....

"I have always been an artistic person. Even as a child, I remember some of the most exciting gifts I received being a paint set and some aquarelle colour pencils. I’ve been blessed my whole life to be surrounded by encouraging and inspiring women, my mother and grandmother, who were artists themselves and always encouraged me to explore my artistic dispositions. Only recently have I discovered the online world of art sharing, tutorials and social pages for inspiration. I was very keen to join this world of so many amazing and varied artists and so, as an avid scrapbooker, I entered challenges and applied for design teams and in no time at all, I was completely absorbed in the design environment and enjoying meeting and chatting on line to so many talented people from all around the world. Each and everyone of them has supported my growth to where I am today. It has been such a breath of fresh air for me. Coming from a small country town in Australia where the focus is primarily on sporting accolades not artistic success, I finally found an avenue to reach out to like minded people with ease. I am so honoured and proud to be a part of such an innovative collaboration of art and artists around the world. Enjoy your journey and strive for more adventure xx"

And here is Fee's awesome take on the layout...

I love all this mixed media that this sketch has inspired.  Thank you Fee for Guesting for us.
