What would Swirlydoos be without our wonderful subscribers?!? It's a pleasure getting to know these ladies on the forums and from the stories they tell through their layouts. Yes,we are an amazing community, but most of all, we're a family! We appreciate each and every member and they deserved to be spotlighted. With that being said, our featured member for November is.....
Here is a bit about our wonderful Manda:
Hi! My name is Amanda Kurtz, but I really go by Manda. I have been scrapping now for about 10 years, I started when my oldest son, then a sweet baby boy, was 1. At first, it was a way for me to simply remember all the cute little things he did that I knew I would forget as he got older, well, 2 more kids and 10 years later I am knee-deep in scrap pages! It has definitely helped to define who I am, not just what I do.
I would say that my style is sort of messy-pretty-altered-grunge. I love paints, inks, mediums and mists of all kinds. Some say I have a misting problem. I say, everything is better with mist! I am always experimenting with color and style, I love to take inspiration from nature and music, movies and art. I try to not do the same thing twice as I get bored quite easily.
I am so honored to be the featured member for November here at Swirlydoos! I never really had a honed-in sense of what my artistic outlet was until I joined this amazing club. From the beginning, I was welcomed with open arms and minds and I have found a great home. I am always learning and growing with the support of my fellow Swirly Savages. There is often something new to try (and buy) and I love the sharing of ideas and techniques that makes Swirlydoos such an awesome club.
Manda has always caught my eye with her misting ability. It's because of her I actually tried it. Now, I love it!! Here are a few projects of Manda's that I found in our gallery that I absolutely love!!
