Special Guest Spotlight On
MARTA TURSKA-GROCHOCKA


It's time for us to introduce to you another fabulous
Special Guest Designer, not that this lady needs any introduction!

Her work never ceases to amaze and her style inspires many.

With no further ado, our October Special Guest is...


Marta Turska-Grochocka is certainly one of the best in the scrapbooking industry.
Her art is known throughout the world and has been published more times 
than one can count. We are absolutely thrilled to have her join us today
with her gorgeous take on our October Main Challenge.

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

Hello everyone! I'm Marta Turska-Grochocka, known as JaMajka, 
a scrapbooking artist from Poland. I create scrapbooking layouts, 
mixed media art journal spreads and pages, as well as Artist 
Trading Cards, cards, off-the-page projects and altered art projects. 
I love colour, texture and unusual embellishments like threads and buttons. 

My work has been published in Somerset Apprentice and Art Journaling, 
American magazines by Stampington, in French Scrap Magazine 
and Carnet de Scrap and Scrap n' Art Magazine. 
I am thrilled to be part of many creative and design teams: 
Finnabair, Lindy's Stamp Gang, scrapki-wyzwaniowo, 
Pion Design, Retro Kraft Shop and a few other teams.

followed by Marta's stunning project which was inspired by it.





Read below as Marta describes in her own words how she was inspired
by our word and how she chose to incorporate our creative challenge:

The word DELICATE inspired me to create an art journal spread full of layers 
in an old book. I love to create unique altered art pieces. The word was my main 
inspiration tip when I was picking out colours, thus why I chose to create 
with very soft shades of beige (using real coffee), gold and a drop of very pale pink. 
I added very fine stamping and tiny drops of liquid pearl as well as 
embossing powder on the background. The old vintage picture of a beautiful 
classy lady completed my delicate composition. 

To incorporate the FABRICS creative challenge, I used many fabric elements 
such as cotton lace, cotton fabric tape, guipure flowers and a big fabric flower. 
I tried to evoke the same textures in the gorgeous images of the challenge board.

We are absolutely stunned at Marta's beautiful spread! 
From the gorgeous ivory/beige lace to the big fabric flower to the pieces 
of thread, this piece of art perfectly captures the essence of our word 
and all the delicateness of our creative challenge.

Let's take a look at some details:




A big THANK YOU to Marta for joining us 
as our October Special Guest!

We hope that you will take inspiration from Marta's creation
and that you will play along with our October Main Challenge.

You have until October 31st to link up!
