Design Team Intro | Gill Sansom

We are really excited to introduce NEW Design Team member…

Gill Sansom

As a mum to two teenage boys, crafting has been both my therapy and escape, my bit of time out for myself to immerse myself in the colourful creative world of messy painted backgrounds and beautiful stamped and coloured images. My mindful messy moments of joy!

Gill is on our TV SAMPLES TEAM!

Gill’s gorgeous cards and mixed media projects with fabulous inky backgrounds really caught our eye ♡

Gill made her fantastic background with acrylic paints and tissue paper then added more texture by randomly stamping our GRUNGE TONES stamps using rose, yellow and green inks. Next Gill added more interest by inking through our WORDS OF SUPPORT stencil. To create the gorgeous flowers Gill used our DAISY DAISY stencil as a template, painted the petals with white acrylic paint, then coated them with Starlights metallic paint in ‘clotted cream’. The centres were painted to co-ordinate with the bright oranges and yellows in the background, and gold paint was stippled to create the stamen. The grungy butterflies from our WINGS OF CHANGE set were stamped with Versafine Clair ink onto smooshed inky backgrounds made with ‘scattered straw’ and ‘worn lipstick’ distress oxide inks. The sentiments were stamped and then clear embossed, and Gill finished by hand drawing doodled frames around the sentiments and canvas edges using a black fine liner pen.
