Maria Daeyaert's 4th Guest Spot
This will be Maria's last Guest Spot for now. I'll definitely be inviting her back again. She's made absolutely beautiful art with my stamps and it's been a pleasure getting to know her a bit better through our correspondence :)
This batch is something completely different than what we've seen so far from Maria Dayaert. Clean, simple and still stunning. I love how she's used colour sparingly to accentuate the designs. The outline around the Seahorses and Starfish works really well to blend them into the background. They feel like they belong there instead of being stuck on like a sticker.
Maria's process for these pieces...
"I used pencil crayons with a lot of pigment (Derwent pencils) and the paper is the backside of Timholz card stock. It looks like craft paper but I liked the colour more. It's a bit darker than regular craft paper. I also used black archival ink, white embossing powder and versamark. From Stampendous I used Enamel red (for the fairy dust) and Enamel white and gold for the other cards!! I also used my white gelly pen for the white accents!!"
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!!"

That's it for now. I hope you've been enjoying the art that I've been sharing on here. Please feel free to comment with your thoughts. I know Maria will check out what you've written. I'm sure she'd also love a visit on her blog if you have the time.
Bye for now!
