Homemade Flowers and Hand Dyed Ribbon Top Talent

Welcome back to another Top Talent spotlight at Our Creative Corner!

This month we are shining the spotlight on the winner of the 'Homemade Flowers and Hand Dyed Ribbon' Challenge that was hosted by Astrid!

Our Creative Corner is so pleased to be welcoming Julie from Juliz Design Post

  Julie is a second time winner here at Our Creative Corner. She won previously for her gorgeous butterfly canvas in February! 
When someone wins at the OCC three times they are awarded a Gold Winners Badge! 
I wonder if Julie will be the first to do it? (No pressure Julie!)

Before we show you Julie's stunning creation,  let's just spend some time finding out a little bit more about her..... 

1. Is there something you wish you were better at?

I envy people that can draw and paint a picture. My paintings and drawings still look the same as when I was at Primary School.

2. If you had a time machine, what historical figure would you love to see in 21st century life?

There are several people I would love to meet past and present but one of the historical figures that has always stood out for me since I was a child is Joan of Arc.

3. Whats the most unusual thing you've ever eaten?

This I had to think about as I am not very adventurous at trying new foods. But probably a frogs leg which a chef talked me into trying a little bit of....never again !

4. What supply wouldn't you do without when it comes to stamping?

I couldn't do without my go to background stamps of crackles, leaves and script they are always lying on my desk should I need to add an accent onto something.

5. Are you a day-time or night-time crafter?

I tend to craft in the afternoon but have been known to do a night shift crafting. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with an idea and can't get back to sleep as I keep thinking about it. So I give up trying to sleep and get up and craft.

6. Do you work on more than one piece at a time?

Occasionally if it is a large project, otherwise I tend to finish what I have started before moving on to the next thing.

7. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

Majorca is a place where my husband and I have lots of wonderful memories and for the warmer climate. I also have a great love for York in England, it is so steeped in History I never tire of this place.

Now let's see what Julie made for her second time in the Our Creative Corner Spotlight!!!!
