Kimberly N.... An AMAZING Guest Designer Spotlight

Greetings AMAZING Crafters! Today we have a fun questionnaire that we posed to our Guest Designer Kimberly N.! Have fun getting to know her a little better and enjoy her amazing jeweled eye candy, too! CLICK HERE if you missed her fun canvas tutorial using Amazing Mold Putty and Amazing Casting Resin from last week. :) Sb

A little bit about Kimberly N.

Hi my name is Kimberly N. – I am married to my junior high school sweetheart and I have three amazing boys, two beautiful daughters in-laws, one grandson and two granddaughters. I started crafting about 9 years ago... I started out with a Cricut then expanded from there. I enjoy altering the unexpected and I LOVE playing with mixed-media art. My creative style can best be described as being vintage-distress, as I love combining vintage and Steampunk.

A little about my pendant. I created this adorable heart necklace for my best friends birthday. I wanted to give her something special she can carry with her when she's having a bad day and needs to remember she has a crazy fun friend that will sparkle her with giggles when she's down. So I took my necklace that she bought me years ago and molded it with Amazing Mold Putty then I took out some alphabet brads to make the BF. I dusted the mold with Alumilite Gold and Silver Metallic Powders, added some beads into the mold then poured in some Amazing Casting Resin. While curing, I pressed in the alpha brads. I removed pendant and finished off with Canvas Corp. waxed cotton cord.

Some fun questions for the inquiring minds...

• • • • •

What did you want to be when you grew up?
"I wanted to be a interior designer."

Coke or Pepsi???
"This is a funny question because it depends on my mood. Some days I'm all about the Pepsi when I need a extra jolt of sugars with my caffeine... but Coke is my all time favorite – not too sweet just right!"

What inspires you?
"Hmmmm, lets see what inspires me. Well it can be the most simple things – like drinking a cup of coffee... and that a-ha moment comes to me! I also love looking on Pinterest if I really need to get inspired to create something fun... to wisk myself away into another world for just one moment and take off on a creative journey. "

What is the TOP thing to do on your "Bucket LIST"?

"You probably won't believe this, but I'm scared to have a bucket list. I live for today and enjoy every moment of life that I can as if tomorrow will never come. It would be fun to someday skydive... with my hubby before we get old and brittle."

If you could print any phrase
on a T-shirt, what would it say?
"Live life for today..."

If you could mold ANYTHING with
Amazing Mold Putty, what would it be?
"Seriously I took myself on a little journey thinking oh my gosh what would I mold... if I could mold ANYTHING?? I SO would mold myself so I could be in two places at once LOL. Then I would mold what unconditional love feels like and share it with the world! "

What style of music gets your creative juices going?
"I'm not really a music kinda of person. I love to have the window open to here the birds and the children in the back ground whistling and giggling no TV no music... so my creative mind can be whisked away into a relaxing fun place."

From "Meh..." to #Cre8time WOW! Artsy Home Decor REDUX by Aimée Wheaton #MakeThings

I'm a sucker for good deals and I'm an even bigger sucker for things that have birds on them. Well I found this good deal sometime this Spring at Hobby Lobby for $2.99... couldn't pass that up. I loved how it looked like folk art too. I decided to make it pop a bit more using some paint, gel medium, stamps, ink, glitter, pen and of course Amazing Clear Cast Resin!

Here's the original bird :)

I chose lighter aqua, yellow, orange, white
and added pink as an after thought.

I love how it started coming to life already just with acrylic paint.

I LOVE the orange.

Next I decided to stamp the word "peace" because it looked peaceful
and we could use more peace in this world and our homes.

Next I embellished certain areas with gel medium and then...

sprinkled some glitter :)

Getting really pretty!! You can see I added
a hot pink for even more color.

I mixed up some Amazing Clear Cast Resin in a larger batch – I wanted to pour into another mold as well, the same mold I used in my inspiration post last month.

Mix it well and let the bubbles settle a bit.

Originally I was going to do resin to the edges of the piece,
but decided to go to the border of the bird and stay inside.

Letting it dry overnight.

Now check out the finished product!! :)

Well to my dismay the Amazing Clear Cast Resin jumped the border! LOL I will be filling it in to cover the entire surface soon. I didn't have time to fix it before this post. I really like how it made the entire piece just pop! So much prettier to me! Simple project with a lot of pizazz!

I gave her lashes! How could I not?

Shining in the sun.

You can see where the resin migrated here. I'll go back with
another batch of Amazing Clear Cast Resin and fill it all in.

I really like how she turned out! :) What do you think?
