Hi Everyone! My name is Lucyna Marynowska aka Lula. Let me tell you all at Bleeding Art I am absolutely delighted and honoured to be a guest designer here, this is such a talented design team!
A little about me: I come from the north of Poland. Sixty, retired widow, mum of two grown up boys and a happy grandma. I started my crafting journey 7 years ago as a card maker and immediately became an addicted paper-lover. After my husband's death, it was crafting that helped me to conquer the pain. I enjoy creating anything from cards to altered art and love to experiment with various types of mediums. I am keen on colour and texture and I always try to find new ways to express myself. I love challenges to spark my creativity and making crafty friends all over the world makes me very happy. For the current theme - Add Stenciling - I have prepared a mixed media doll. I have used lots of mixed media stuff to make this piece and emphasized its texture. Starting from various shades of acrylic paints, stencils and a gelli plate to print some papers, through texture paste stenciled on the "body" to inks and shiny waxes. With a little help of a stamp, recycled piece (legs), and the metal badge, I was able to make my girl! You can follow the steps I am sharing on my blog: https://ululi.blogspot.com/2019/04/like-girl.html. Hope you like my project! Lula xxx

And we've got January's winner back with a fantastic project! Meet Jessica!
Hello there! My name is Jessica Larios/Matter of Crafts. I am a 34-year-old mother to two boys, a wife, a part-time worker, and a full-time student (geriatric counseling). I am inspired to encourage and help others in any way I can - life is too short! My crafting journey began when I was a kid with drawing in a sketchbook. When I turned 17, I started scrapbooking - and I yearned for more! I love telling stories without speaking a word. Through art, I love to encourage others to think outside the box. I'm an up-cycling mixed media artist with a specialty in creating my own concoctions to add interesting dimensions and textures. My passion rests in making unconventional 3D art out of what was once considered discarded trash. I just enjoy using many different techniques and resources to create different types of beautiful projects.
Thanks so much, Jessica, for being our guest designer! You can see more about this project on Jessica's blog as well as her other social media links!
