Welcome back to
Our Creative Corner.

It is with utmost pleasure that I present to you this Thursday all the way from the Netherlands, a multi-talented artist, not only does she make beautiful cards, but her other accomplishments lie in Photography, Drawing and Painting; (Oils, Acrylics Pastel, and Watercolour ) and if that is not enough she is a Great Grandmother as well!!!!
No surprise then that she won the “Make your Own Background ‘ Challenge.
Please welcome and congratulate our Guest and ‘Top Talent’ for this Thursday 13th December 2012.
And the last for this year!
JANNY! Janny's cards and creations.
We are so thrilled to showcase her work, but first let us learn a little bit about her.

1.) ‘Where do you Live’?
My name is Janny van der Male and I live in the village called Leidschendam near The Haque. (in the west part of Holland)

2.) Describe yourself in five words.
 Creative (cards and paintings), liked to travel,

3.) How would you describe your art for the general public audience if they have never seen it before? 
I make different kinds of cards but preferably with stamps. I like to design the backgrounds also. In addition, I also paint ( and I Like to make photographs. (

4.) What colour inspires your creativity?

Blue (water colors) and lilac (In different shades)

5.) What makes you happy?
 My family and all kinds of creativity

6.) What colour do you hardly ever use?
I dislike the colors Black and Red (except in Christmas time).

I think we can all see how you enjoy painting, because this card you have presented is unique in design and colour palette, but still carries the Christmas feeling.

Thank you Janny for being our 'Thursday's Top Talent'. and sharing such wonderful inspiration with us!

This is the last Top Talent Post for 2012......we will reconvene January 3rd 2013.

"Thank you each and everyone for your continued support throughout 2012, we value and acknowledge your patronage very much.
We hope you have a Christmas that is all you hope it will be, and however you celebrate, may it be a happy and joyful one, with special moments to cherish.
This is a time of giving, and to share the blessings that we have to others, so that they too can feel the spirit of Christmas."
Merry Christmas to you all!
From the team at Our Creative Corner.

My personal wish for the New Year is to retain a positive attitude, with the expectation that my creative mind will be complacent to my needs and not falter too often;
It maybe a big ask!


"The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it."
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
