What fantastic Shabby Chic projects were entered in to our last challenge. I love the muted colours and distressed papers and card. I think it may be my favourite style to look at but I personally find it hard to do as I like my straight lines. Funny what we like compared to what we do. As usual the Winner and favourites will be announced next week.
Unfortunately, we have had 2 members of the DT step down, so we would like to wish Robin and Amy all the best and I would like to thank them both for their wonderful creations which I know will have given many people inspiration.
This week we have the wonderful Andreia from
Andreia Silva, that’s the name of the artist. She’s Portuguese, to be more precise, born in Madeira Island, also known as the Atlantic pearl. Land of great food, great weather and beautiful landscaping.
Since little been crazy over crayons and drawing, being one of the things that always were on her hobby list.
Being fascinated by stories, fantasy, mythology, princesses and all that, marked her style, well that and manga/anime lol! So fantasy art is her thing!
All she knows over drawing is what she had read on tutorials online and in one book or two she got from manga/anime how to draw.
Before putting some time into teaching herself on how to improve her skills, she used dolling (A form of digital art, in which you find a base somewhere online or make your own, take it into a paint program, then draw and shade clothes on it.) as a way to express her creativity and drawing talent. She was known online as Orathty, the crazy doller over massive hairs and loads of folds, something that still proceeds with her on the drawing now. Is her style J
Andreia also loves photography, to make some manual arts such as a bit of decoupage and books.
