Time to Shine the Limelight!

September marks a new month and with it, we say farewell to Makiko Jones as our Limelight Designer! :-( I don't know about you, but she continually inspired me from week to week. So much so, I've bookmarked some of her projects to try on my own! I already tried her faux screen technique. If you haven't seen that tutorial yet -- you should click HERE and check it out! Amazing! Thanks Makiko! We were honored to have your creations here on the Flourishes Newsletter and we know we'll still be stopping by your "studio" for more inspiration!

As we say goodbye to Makiko, we say "hello" to another fabulously talented artist, who will be gracing the pages of the Flourishes Newsletter each Sunday in August! Let's give a warm welcome to.....

I've been a fan of Michelle's work for the past several years! She has such a distinct style that can be seen as shabby and rustic one day to just plain feminine the next. Embellishments and creating a fun "twist" in her work is her specialty! To get ready for her big debut, we asked her to share a little bit about herself!

I live in Central New York with my husband, 2 teenaged daughters, 2 dogs and 20 chickens. I've been stamping for 5 years and have been members of several design teams including SCS Dirty Dozen, My Favorite Things, American Art Stamp, Gina K Designs, Impression Obsession and Embellish-It Online.

Really? 20 chickens? I don't think I've heard that before! :-) Thanks Michelle for sharing your talents with us in the Limelight!
Michelle will be with us each Sunday in September... so get ready to be "wowed" by this "Twisted Chick!"

See you tomorrow!
