I’d like to introduce you to Pauline today ~
Pauline is married, with a special needs foster daughter. She has a wee doggie (Jack Russell Whippet mix) and lives in Southern Australia.
Outside of stamping, she’s a full time career mum to her special needs daughter. She doesn’t have a paid job outside of stamping, but teaches scrapbooking and card making, for kicks!
Pauline got into stamping because she wanted to hand make all of her wedding invitations, place cards etc..... and she hasn’t looked back since... that was 10 years ago!
When I asked what her favorite embellishment and why, she said, ”that would have to be haberdashery - by saying haberdashery, I can encompass more than one embellishment! Buttons, lace, fabric flowers, bling.... I love all the fancy stuff - my grandmothers were milliners and dressmakers, and were always surrounded in the most beautiful things.”
When I asked her if she had a favorite stamp from Michelle Perkett Studio she said, “It’s way to hard to choose ONE! I love the goddesses, fairies, and mermaids. First name to mind would be the Earth Goddess - she reminds me of the Nox from Stargate SG1!”
I asked how she would describe your stamping style and her answer was,
”Uncomplicated. I can be bright or subtle, frilly or flat, but I think uncomplicated covers me the best! I like such a huge variety of image styles, I can't commit to just one!”
When asked about her favorite part of stamping she likes colouring and embellishing the most. Her favorite non card making project is scrapbooking.
When asked about her favorite coloring medium and why she said, “I really love markers, I use them almost daily. But I think may favourite would be chalks, because they are so forgiving, and can be subtle, or suped up!
I asked Pauline to tell us about her blog My Paper Playground…
”My blog is a mixture..... I don't always stamp in my card creations. I often use vintage photos, and I embroider and bead as well. I have just started playing with 3D creations, my first was a heeled shoe. In my earlier bloggy days, I also shared my scrapbooking and jewelry creations - I just haven't shared those lately!
I hope you enjoyed getting to know Pauline a little more as much as I have!
