Carla's Profile

About

I grew up in the Midwest. My mom kept on hand a craft box with craft supplies and a couple of craft idea books: McCall's Golden "Do-It Book" circa 1960 and McCall's Giant Golden "Make-It Book" circa 1953. When the weather kept us inside, she'd get out the craft box and we'd sit around the dining room table cutting and gluing and generally making a relatively quiet mess. I think I made my first scrapbook, an album of all of our family pets over the years, when I was 11.

I learned to sew in 7th grade and loved to create my own clothes, almost as much as I loved to sit next to my little sister on the living room couch and flip through the new Sears or JCPenny catalogs picking which items we liked the best by pointing to it and calling out "mine" before the other one could hardly even focus on the page!

With my mixed media art, I was able to dig into the back of my closet to find the long-abandoned rubber stamps and inks, scrapbooking papers and rub-ons, stencils, embossing powders and pads, and Mod Podge. I re-use, or as I prefer to call it "re-love," items as stamps and stencils such as bubble wrap, paper towel rolls, bottle lids, wine corks, masking tape, etc. I use glass bottles, bulletin boards and mirrors as my canvases. All of this works my creative spirit... Creating art is my stress balancer!
