AA Featured Artist | Carrie Taylor

Hi my name is Carrie Taylor.

I have been scrapbooking for about 8 yrs now and i fell in love with it the moment I started. My sister tried talking me into starting this hobby for almost a yr, finally i bit and gave it a try and i was hooked instantly. I love to learn and there are so many talented people in this craft, i just soak it all up.

I am addicted to youtube for inspiration and it amazes me everyday of the talent that is in the world. About two weeks ago i was talking with my best friend and she told me about Christy Tomlinson videos on youtube and how she would love to try mixed media. It was really funny because i was watching other mixed media videos at the same time. We both got the mixed media bug at the same moment. I watched christy Tomlinsons video on scarlet lime and immediately i had to try. I am hooked. i love having paint all over my hands and shirt and sometimes it hits my face. Makes me so happy it seems to bring out the kid joy in me. I am forever going to keep learning about art, i wanna know all there is to know and try all that there is to try...

For this piece here i was inspired from Christy Tomlinson SHE ART.. I was so nervous to try and cut out a girl but it really is true, it does not need to b perfect and it seems to work out.. I used Prima Madeline papers for this, acrylic paints from the dollar store, modge podge in matte, i used UNITY Stamps designed by ANGIE BLOOM which i love. they are perfect for she art. i just used background stamps on this as well and odds and ends to give texture from my house. I used a stensil for the triangles on here with gesso and tan colored paint to give more texture to the canvas, which is a 12x16. I want to thank Angee for giving me this opportunity for being a guest on the artsy attic blog.
