Guest Designer - Maria Daeyaert

Hey everyone!
Thanks for the comments yesterday on my photos :) I had fun taking them and was surprised at how well my phone captured the Fall colours!
Today I'm doing a Guest Designer spotlight on Maria Daeyaert. She's makes beautiful cards and is a lovely person as I've gotten to know through our correspondence. It's a real pleasure to show you what she's done with my stamps. I'll be posting a few times as she sends in her makes. More to come :)

A little bit about the artist...

"Hello everyone. I'm Maria and I'm here with my first designs with the fantastic Ryn stamps. I live in Belgium, a very small country but with Brussels as Capital of the European Community!! I'm just retired (the 1st of oktober) from a job in the "public services". I'm 61 and a half years young. I have three grown up sons and a very sweet husband!! I love crafting! At first I made some projects with cute stamps but that changed when I went to the Art Specially Event in the Netherlands for the first time in 2010. I saw all the beautiful art works - especilly the work of Miranda Degenaars - and I was really inspired. I wanted to learn how to do that too!! So I went to some workshops to learn the basics. I'm not an expert but I manage to do my own thing. I always think that it's the result that counts not the way you do it, so I experiment and have fun trying out my own technics. I like bright colours and am drawn to Dylusions inks, Distress ink and paint. Anything as long as it is bright and cheerfull!!
In 2013, I was the lucky winner of the Dutch poster contest from the Art Specially Event. I'm also a member of the CB Design Team!!
I was really surprised that Ryn asked me to be a guest designer. I'm also very honoured that she let me play with her unique stamps! They are real fun to play with! You can go your own way with them and try out different things ( like I did with the starfish stamps. I created some christmas stars with them, just for the season!) I really loved using them and hope you like what I made. Thank you Ryn for the possibility to be an guest designer with your stamps!!"

And now for her art!

Love how the hummingbird looks like it's glowing! In this piece Maria used Forest Floor 1, Sitting Hummingbird and Leafy Branch
Love that little spider holding onto the droplet! Maria's used Compound Leaf and Raindrop Set
Such a unique idea to use Starfish Set as Christmas Stars!!! A perfect Christmas card idea for people who live in tropical climates isn't it?
In this last card Maria used Starfish Set and Sea Bubbles Set.
Well that's it for now! I hope you enjoyed Maria's art as I have :) I'm sure she'd love a visit at her blog if you've got a moment to pop over.

  3. Congratulations Maria on being Guest Designer, which is well deserved as you do some wonderful work elsewhere which I have seen and admired. I love your bright and lively interpretation with the hummingbird and that watery stamped background sheet goes perfectly. The autumnal colours for the leaves is so pretty and I like the added leaves and butterflies. The starfish as stars in the last two. and the hint of starfish in the background in those lovely blues and greens, and then the sea bubbles in the last are so effective and just perfect for use where Christmas is not all about ice and snow. Gorgeous. x
