Hi Everyone! My name is Lucyna Marynowska aka Lula. Let me tell you all at Bleeding Art I am absolutely delighted and
honoured to be a guest designer here, this is such a talented design team!

A little about me: I come from the north of Poland. Sixty, retired widow, mum of two grown up boys and a happy grandma. I started my crafting journey 7 years ago as a card maker and immediately became an addicted paper-lover. After my husband's death, it was crafting that helped me to conquer the pain. I enjoy creating anything from cards to altered art and love to experiment with various types of mediums. I am keen on colour and texture and I always try to find new ways to express myself.  I love challenges to spark my creativity and making crafty friends all over the world makes me very happy. 

For the current theme - Add Stenciling - I have prepared a mixed media doll. I have used lots of mixed media stuff to make this piece and emphasized its texture. Starting from various shades of acrylic paints, stencils and a gelli plate to print some papers, through texture paste stenciled on the "body" to inks and shiny waxes. With a little help of a stamp, recycled piece (legs), and the metal badge, I was able to make my girl!  You can follow the steps I am sharing on my blog:  https://ululi.blogspot.com/2019/04/like-girl.html.  Hope you like my project!  Lula xxx
