Special Guest Spotlight on
Aida Domisiewicz


It is mid-month already and we hope that you are busy creating
and will link up your December project soon.
In the meantime, we are back with another Special Guest feature
 to get your creative juices flowing and inspire you all!

Our Special Guest this month is none other than...


Aida Domisiewicz is not only the owner of one of our loyal sponsors, 13 arts, 
but she is also a very well respected and talented artist who is known 
for her busy mixed media style and her constant devotion to teaching others 
her craft.  We are honoured to have her among us today as our Special Guest! 

Let's learn a little more about Aida, through her own words:

"Hello, I am Aida Domisiewicz, also known as Ayeeda in the scrapbooking world. 
I'm a Polish scrapbooker, mixed media artist, designer, teacher 
and owner of 13 arts company.  

My biggest passion is creating with mediums; I love to experiment
 and search for original effects.  I create mostly layouts, canvases and art journal 
pages, but I also love to create on bigger surfaces and alter home decorations.  
My works are recognisable as a bit messy, rich in textures 
(especially with microbeads), mediums and many layers and details.  

I don't have as much time for crafting as I would love to, but creating is my life, 
my getaway!  Over the last few years, I have been a designer in international teams 
and cooperate with stores, kit clubs and challenge sites.  Currently, I mostly teach 
mixed media techniques, design paper collections and mediums and make videos 
and live shows with online classes."

Here is a reminder of our December TRADITIONS & HANDMADE challenge
followed by Aida's gorgeous take on it:



 
Here is how Aida describes how she was inspired by our word:

"My layout is inspired by Christmas TRADITIONS, and of course the Christmas tree is one of the most important traditions of all.  The photo shows me as a little girl standing near the Christmas tree in my old house. Time flies! The next generation is growing and, by looking at this photo, I still feel like a little girl waiting for Santa!"

And this is how Aida interpreted our creative challenge:

"As for my HANDMADE element, I have created a tree and a little wreath, using different dried plants and adornments."

We absolutely adore Aida's layout!  The way she hand crafted the tree and wreath with dried plants is the perfect take on our creative challenge.  It is also very reminiscent of the Christmas tree tradition in itself.  Aida's attention to details is amazing and she has even provided a video for us 
so that we can take a better look at her creative process!





Here are some close-ups of this gorgeous layout:




Aida, thank you so much for agreeing to be our Special Guest 
and inspiring us today... and every day!

Now that your creativity has no doubt been awaken, we cannot wait to see what
