Welcome back to another Top Talent spotlight at Our Creative Corner!
Laurie selected Suman as the winner of her 'Colour My World' challenge and I'd like to share a piece of Suman's art that she has made especially for us! Before we do, let's just find out a little more about this wonderfully creative lady. Here's what she has to say:
'I am so excited and honored to be here as the Top Talent Spotlight at Our Creative Corner !! I had won the Colour Your World challenge for this entry of mine and was thrilled when I got a mail from Julia and was asked to be in the spotlight.'
Where do you Live?
I live in New Delhi, the capital city of India.
If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
I would love to live in India always but maybe move to Chandigarh or Dehradun away from the Metro city of New Delhi just so be to closer to nature and the hill stations surrounding both these places.
What other hobbies or talents do you have that you'd like to share with us?
I am a voracious reader and we are surrounded by books in our house on all topics !! Also love to bake and make homemade chocolates!!My biggest talent is to jump headlong into any new thing or craft even when I may not know anything about it, then obsessively work on it, learn about it, research, make my own recipes, working surreptitiously on it while I could be gainfully employed elsewhere …..you get the idea…..generally go mad about it…..and as I choose to select THIS as a talent !!!...am sure you feel lucky that you never asked about my shortcomings, LOL !!
How long have you been crafting and what made you start crafting?
I started my blog on March 2013 on an impulse. I had been doing some quilling with handcut strips and trying out with glass colors on bottles before that. Mainly started following some blogs with an idea to help my son in his school projects but then got more and more involved. I am so happy to have joined this beautiful world and for the generous support and love from so many of my blogger buddies. All my learning has been from the generous sharing by bloggers around the world and I like to repay my bit by doing tutorials and WIP pictorials whenever I can.
How would you describe your style of crafting?
Cannot say exactly but am heavily inspired by Indian motifs and Handicrafts!! Love to incorporate textures, layers and organic stuff like wood, twigs, dry flowers, jute/burlap, fabric etc in my creations!!I get fascinated by faces, leaves and birds and love to have these as focal points( one of the reasons I like Image/photo transfers)!! I love Mixmedia, altered art and recycling is always big on my list !!
If you could only use three craft supplies for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Hummm….maybe acrylic paints, stencils and Texture paste !!
Here is Suman's absolutely gorgeous Finnabair inspired project:
