Top Talent Thursday.

Welcome back to
Our Creative Corner.
Our Top Talent this week has been chosen by three different Dt’s on three different occasions the first was in 'The photo Challenge' and the second 'Lets be Royal'  and now the A.B.C.Challenge.
Please put your hands together for our very first triple winner; Nicola, she catches the eye of all our Dt’s here at OCC with her wonderful creations.
It is with utmost pleasure that I present to you this Thursday all the way from Ireland, a lady who surprisingly has not been blogging very long, but what she lacks in time she makes up with her talent.
So please welcome our Top Talent;
Nicola - Paper Profusion

First let us learn a little bit about her. 

1.) Where do you Live?
I live in Dublin, Ireland in a picturesque Georgian district about 15 minutes walk from the main centre of the city. My home overlooks a lovely part of Dublin’s Grand Canal with its tree-lined towpaths. Many tourists who have visited Dublin would likely have passed near my home on one or other of the various city tour vehicles or on foot.

2.)Describe yourself in five words?

I’m still pondering this one -That’s 5! Hmmm, I’ll submit Generous, Loving, Perfectionist, Thinker and Sensitive.

3.) How would you describe what it means to have an "Artistic Outlook" on life?
I hadn't considered myself as artistic so I'll take this compliment gladly. I suppose for me it means that 'the visual' is very prominent in my world. I likely am at my happiest and most creative when surrounded with visuals and light that appeal to me. I am curious to continue to see new things, the more aesthetic the better.

4.) Bathroom, Craft-room, or car. Which do you clean first?
Bathroom. Alas I don’t have space for a craft-room, but even if I did it would still be bathroom.

5.) Is there anything unique or quirky you would like to share with us about yourself? (It could be a fun thing.)
I adore Elephants! There are quite a few images, sculptures or carvings of them around my home. You can see that I even specially 'packed my trunk' for this project!!

6.) If you could have anything you wanted, what would it be?
Good health.

Now sit back and have a look at her beautiful altered suitcases.


Thank you Nicola for being our 'Thursday's Top Talent' again and sharing such wonderful inspiration with us!
You will find details on her blog and more photos.
