Brief Bio about Moi:
My name is Serena and I'm 25. I've always been crafty but had put it on hold when I went to cegep and university. But during my last year of university my love for crafting and scrapbooking re-emerged. I found myself on YouTube watching videos and learning new techniques instead of studying for finals hehe no worries, I still got good grades :) but I was just so enthralled with the underground scrapbook world I had just discovered that I quickly became obsessed. This was 3 years ago and since then I've developed my craft. I am mainly a card-maker, smash-booker and recently I've been doing a lot of mixed media and art journaling. My style is always evolving as I discover new projects and ideas I want to make. But I would say I am drawn to the dark side of crafting. When I first discovered the real scrapbooking world I noticed that everything was cutesy and main-stream stuff, which is totally fine, I do love some Dear Lizzy and Echo Park, but I just never knew there were stamp companies out there that made only dark or even Gothic stamps. That's when I discovered The Octopode Factory and Stampotique Originals. I honestly burst with excitement because I had finally found companies that spoke to my heart and that I knew I would fall in love with in an instant. These various designers, companies, artists, and challenge blogs have finally allowed myself to make what I truly love. I must admit I still love the cutesy and whimsical and you will definitely see that in my work along with bright happy colors, I think everyone has different sides to their character and in result their art. So enough about me let's get onto the next part.
I am not part of any design teams as of yet :( but it has been a dream and a goal of mine to belong to a design team. Just this week I thought about how I wanted to be part of a team and then poof, I get a comment on my blog from Jacki, the owner of PunkyouGirl, to participate in a design team call!! Yay! My dreams have been answered... well I still have to apply for it ;) but just being given this great opportunity is a wonderful step in the right direction. I want to get more involved in the crafting world, I want people to watch my YouTube videos and read my blog and be inspired! I want to craft all day!! And I want to be part of PunkyouGirl's Design team!
Three Favorite Makes:
Now this part is a little tough(how can I pick just 3). I've recently only been making art journal pages so that is what I have to show.
(There is many more where that came from!)
In terms of what I can bring to PunkyouGirl as a design team member; I can definitely meet all of the requirements of a DT member and more. I will provide you and our audience with fun, quirky, and dark tutorials, art journal pages, mixed media art, alter books and altered projects, smash-book pages, and cards. As well as YouTube videos to help promote the PunkyouGirl blog and the monthly challenges. So with that being said... pick me :) hehe
