Stampotique Challenge Guest Designer
Kate lives in the north of England with her husband, two children, several small animals and a dog! In real life she is a school teacher, but in her free time she loves to play with paint, inks, rubber stamps and anything else she can get her hands on! She has been creative all of her life but a passing interest in cardmaking and scrapbooking led her into mixed media art and eventually art journaling. She has been on several design teams, including Stampotique (USA) and Dylusions for Ranger, and now has her own range of stamps for Stampotique Originals. She has contributed to Craft Stamper magazine (UK) and has also been published in several Stampington magazines including Somerset Art Journaling, Artful Blogging, Somerset Studio, Stampers Sampler, and Somerset Apprentice. Kate has made six DVDs on the subject of Art Journaling which were published by Traplet (UK) but have sold internationally. She has a passion for teaching and sharing her ideas and techniques, and holds regular classes in various locations. She also teaches on-line classes. She also loves social networking and blogging, and sees this as a great way to inspire and to be inspired. She describes her style as colourful, quirky, honest and a little off the wall! You can see all of her wonderful projects on her blog at thekathrynwheel.blogspot.com.
