SDC March Guest Designer

We want to say a huge thank you for Lisa Mason and Trish Lattimer for sharing their creativity with us throughout February-was great having them as part of the team for the month!

At Stampotique Designer's Challenge we are thrilled to announce the next guest designer for the month of March.  We welcome Amanda Southern and here is a little more about Amanda:


Hi My name is Amanda and I started crafting in 2009 where I just played about really, learning what it was I liked to create and how I liked to create it. On this journey of discovery I found the wonderful Stampotique stamps and inparticular the characters created by Daniel Torrente, I just fell in love with them and their versatility. I love trying out new techniques and mediums and my style I think is quite varied. Sometimes I like to create in a neat and precise way and then the next time I will splash and splat colour around with wild abandon. I am finding at the moment that I am drawn to playing a lot with a variety of paints and mediums that allow me freedom across a blank canvas. I start off with an idea in mind but somehow it never ends up that way which I think adds to the whole creative process. I also love getting my sewing machine out to add further texture to a project. I see my creativity constantly evolving with all the fabulous inspiration that I come across from the wonderfully talented people out there in Blogland.  

When I am not crafting I’m probably working, as I work full time as a Retail Store Manager for a large blue chip retailer here in the UK, doing a job I love. I am always saying “There is never enough time” which means I thrive on the fact that I am never bored.

Make sure you check out Amanda's blog and welcome her, I've had a sneak at her first projects and they are magnificent!
