Double welcome to todays Guest, Lula !

Hello and welcome back ! Today we are welcoming Lula as our Guest but as the title suggests this is a double welcome as Lula is also joining the Stamps and Stencils Design Team ! So, let's move on to hear from Lula and please give her a warm welcome.

First of all let me say I feel so honoured to be invited here and have a possibility to introduce my work.

How long have you been crafting for ?
 I started my crafting journey 7 years ago. 
What or who inspired you to start crafting ?
 I was inspired by my son's friend (much younger than me) who invited me for a card-making meeting.
What is your favourite technique ?
 I love all of them but mixed media is definitely my favourite thing.
What excites you most about crafting ? 
I'm never satisfied doing things the usual way, so I'm always trying to find ways to be a bit different.
What is your 'go to' product and why ?
 Definitely gesso is the product I use all the time. It is such a versatile product: primer, texture maker, highlighter, transfer medium...etc. Love using both white and black.
Who would you most like to take a class with ?
 I would like to take a class with Seth Apter. I think he is a large format artist and his mixed media masterpieces are so inspiring! Love his grunge style.
What's your favourite style of crafting i.e. journalling, altered items etc.. ?
 I enjoy making almost anything from tags to art journaling, but I love altered art projects and creative upcycling always makes me happy.
Where do you find inspiration? 
 My inspiration come mostly from long walks and nature watching, reading books and music I listen to.

We are so excited that Lula is joining the team and as you can see Lula's work is just stunning !

The current challenge On the Bright Side still has plenty of time to go, so it would be great to see your entries !
