Welcome back to Our Creative Corner.
It is with utmost pleasure that I present to you this Thursday, a very talented lady who is exceptional in design as well as in the handi-crafts discipline. I do not need to give much introduction as she has provided a wonderful synopsis of her life and it makes for interesting reading and I am sure you will enjoy learning about her as much as I did.
Goodness, I do enjoy having the opportunity to salute these wonderful ladies that I am privileged to present every Thursday.
Please welcome this weeks Top Talent:
1.) Where do you Live?
I live in a place called Strømmen just outside Oslo, the capital of Norway. I am interested interior design, so I have another blog were you can visit my home. http://villasunniva.blogspot.no
2.) What supply wouldn't you do without when it comes to stamping?
I love my distress inks, Tim Holtz - scissors and seam binding ribbons and I am also addicted to beautiful patterned papers and different kind of stamps.
3.) List three blogs that truly inspire you.
I love to do different styles of card making. I am easily bored if I have to do the same kind of thing for a long time. If I have made something cute I have to make something else next so my bloglist is influenced by that. I often visit these blogs: Tim Holtz, Graphic 45 and LilyBean´s Paperie. There are a lot of fantastic norwegian card makers that i like to visit too.
4.) What techniques or routine do you employ to inspire yourself?
I get inspired by blogs, magazines and patterned papers. I am easily inspired and I like to clean up my workspace before I start a new project.
5.) What other hobbies or talents do you have that you'd like to share with us?
I love the theatre and have been acting, producing and directing plays most of my life. When I was young, I studied to be a photographer so I love to take pictures. I also like interior design. I love to tell a story and express feelings and I think that all my work is influenced by that. Some people tell me that they sometimes can feel the theatre and drama in my paperwork. I also like to teach, so I do a lot of scrapbooking and cardmaking classes.
6.) Are you a day-time or night-time crafter?
I really like to work in my craft room in the late evening, and I am often so engaged in my project that I go to bed much later than I mean to. We have some really nice radio-programs in the evenings, that I love to listen to while I am working.
Shabby-licious and sumptuous splendour is how I would describe this creation.
You must visit Synnove's Blog she creates beautiful work, her Easter Egg creation HERE is stunning.
