Another Punky Feature.....Natalie Jane!!

Hello!!!  It's another Punky Feature!!

Let me introduce myself......I am Nat and i first set up this blog in October 2010 with the first challenges starting in December.  So we are nearly 1 year old!!  I started scrapbooking in 2009 and began experimenting with inks, paints and sprays from the start....anyone would think i like to get messy!

Well, let me tell you why i set this place up..... i like to do things a bit different....i believe there is no right or wrong in scrapbooking - just what you like to do!! It's a hobby after all and you are supposed to enjoy it...not try to emulate others.
It might surprise you, that i do not like art, in fact i disliked it that much, i stopped taking it at school. My love for colour, paint, metal & texture comes from my love for Chemistry.
As for my inspiration: it comes from everywhere...and since blogger is free i thought i'd share it with the help of some incredibly talented and like minded ladies :)

You get a mix of challenges to inspire you to create from sketches, to photos, to random products & techniques.  Anything goes here - we just want you to create and share!! :)

So, my stuff......
