Hello Everyone! My name is Linda and I’m living in Sandnes, Norway in Scandinavia. I’m proud to be a part of the Basically Bare Book Bunch. For me it was love at first sight the first time I saw a BB mixed media album last fall. And to become a member of this super talented design team for this fantastic product line, is a dream come true.
I love that all the different mixed media albums and embellishments come in lots of different materials. People who know my style, know that I like to use lots of different mediums on my projects. And I love the look of colorful mediums combined with the bare look of corrugated chipboard, felt, thick chipboard, canvas, acrylic and envelopes.
For my first project I’ve been playing with the beautiful Betty’s Brackets album. I have named it My Art Journey and it is a tribute to some of the beautiful, creative and inspirational people I’ve met on my creative trips. They have all in one way or another touched my creative heart. This is just some of them, so guess I have to make a few of these books. I had lots of fun and hope you will enjoy the journey with me.
