I know this is my personal blog but sometimes I just have to break my own rules and share DS news. I am so happy to announce that two new designers have joined us at DeviantScrap!!
First off is Clementine Howell of Clementine Designs. Clementine has such a unique and creative perspective. She is a fresh, unique voice in the scrapping world, as I am sure you will agree. I am so happy she has joined us!!
If you’re looking for Clementine Howell, she can usually be found trekking around the beautiful mountains of Idaho, trusty camera in tow. She makes her home near a tiny little burg full of lively characters and lovely scenery, and takes her inspiration from the everyday beauty that she sees all around her, from the misspelled cracked sign barely hangin’ on a chain link fence to the creaky ramshackle country market where she bought penny candy as a girl. Her diverse body of work, from Artisan Jewelry to Digital Art Kits, incorporates her ‘Found’ treasures, and reflects her love of the imperfect, the tattered, the grungy, and the real. Her incredible talent and her willingness to experiment allow her to create something utterly lovely, and uniquely ‘Clementine’ out of that reality, and pass it along to all of us. She surrounds herself with fabulously unique artistic influences, including the epic talent of Lorie Davison and partner, a lovable menagerie of furry friends, and her oft present rambunctious crew of kiddos. Her boundless love of life and art comes thru in each and every gloriously quirky creation that she puts out into the world.
Clementine's first kit at DS is called Tommy Town. It is a wonderful ode to her grandson, Tommy. This kit is jam packed with all kinds of goodies, sure to make any child's imagination run wild. Be sure to check out her Freebie Add-on in the shop. It's available for 3 days only!
Nancy Baumiller grew up in a small town in the Northwest, in Yakima Washington State, also known as the ‘Evergreen State’. She had resided there for 36 years, when she met her soul mate and moved to Tennessee, a very long way from home. Nancy is a mother to 5 wonderful children, 3 wonderful step-children and a grandmother to two lovely grandbabies.
Nancy has always been immersed in the world of art and has been creating art ever since she could first hold a crayon. About 5 years ago, she discovered mixed media collage art and art journaling. A new passion was immediately born and she now has many, many colorful art journals and has large portfolio of art under her belt. Her works have been published numerous times in publications like Somerset Studio. This year, she was contacted by Strathmore Art Papers to be one of their poster children for their new “Visual Journals” line. In addition to her love of pen and paper, Nancy decided to take the leap into digital this year. She loves the flexibility that digital elements give to altered artists. Nancy has taken her unique, zetti style and has translated it into digital. Her fun, irreverent style screams “play with me!!”
Here are a few samples of Nancy's newest goodies.
