Kellie's Second Spot...

Hello everyone,

When I asked Kellie Murton to do a Guest Designer spotlight I sent her a few stamps at once. It's been such a treat to see her experiment with each stamp in her video tutorials. They are informative and wonderfully informal. She does a narrative of her thought process and creative problem solving for each piece. Love her style. If I ever get over my fear of being recorded I would like to strive to be as comfortable and candid as Kellie on film. I first highlighted her last month, today I have two videos and there's still more coming!

In case you missed her first introduction, here's a bit about Kellie...

"When I am not working or spending quality time with my 3 boys, ages 23, 11 and 9, you will likely find me in my studio working on my next crafting project, jewelry design or mixed media art journal page. I am the owner of InsideOut Field Services, a professional lender services business. I have over 25 years in the lender services and collections business and starting my own successful servicing business over 9 years ago was a dream come true. It's not all rainbows and butterflies of course but that is where my artistic passion comes in to play to level things out. I also own a small online store called Intoxication by Kellie that I am excited about taking to the next level in the coming months. My amazing husband, who is my soul mate and best friend, keeps me grounded and after all these years of working together and raising our family together, we still LIKE each other. Loving someone is easy. LIKING someone is another story entirely. All my boys are champions and they make me whole.

I've been sharing tutorials and fun creations on YouTube for about 4 years now. I also organized a Google+ community called The ICWIC Crew where we share mixed media projects to inspire each other. The crafting community that I have been fortunate enough to be part of never ceases to amaze me with their kindness and support. I've made some amazing friendships on YouTube that I am very grateful for. I was absolutely honored to be invited to be a guest designer for Ryn Tanaka with Designs by Ryn.com. I have been admiring her stamps for quite some time and I'm proud to demonstrate how I use her high quality products for you."

Kellie's Projects

This is Kellie's newest creation using Water Droplets from my collection. You can check out the video for this on her YouTube channel (Kellie Murton). HERE is a direct link.

In this next tag Kellie used Selini and leafy Branch. Check out her technique for creating a raindrop effect. It's quite different than my stamps and also very effective! HERE is a link to this video.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by :)
