Design Team.

Hi I am Zowie, crafting is my passion. I live in the UK with my wonderful children. I started crafting over eight years ago; I have a love for anything vintage and shabby chic, which you'll see a lot of in my artwork. 
I also like working with mixed media and paper collage. Art to me, is a way of expressing yourself and having fun.




Frederique

Hi I am Frederique, Freddie for short. After travelling the world I now live in The Netherlands with my husband and several fur and feather babies.
I started crafting in the summer of 2011 and have been hooked ever since. My biggest influence is Tim Holtz and the distress products. I mainly work on tags and make cards. I am addicted to stamps and embossing powder.


Jan 
Hi, I’m a stay at home homeschooling mom to a now teenage young man. We started after the end of his 2nd grade year and are still at it. I got started in crafting when I left the workforce with scrapbooking. I played around with that for a few years and then discovered ATC’s. 
 Now my love for art revolves around all types of paper (of which I have too much). I love using mixed media techniques along with lots of different vintage items, such as old boxes, jewelry, vintage paper (old books, ledgers, letters, napkins, etc…), and old lace/fabric. I spend some of my free time hunting for art supplies at Estate sales, yard sales, and Antique/Thrift stores. I love to cut and paste to make my collages and add to it with stamps, inks, glitter, and lace. 



Zahraa

I'm Zahraa, 34 years old from Cairo Egypt, I love paper crafting, stamping, card making, art journaling, mixed media art, junk journal making, mini albums and explosion box album making. I have been crafting since 2012.




Aditi & Sunila

My mother- Sunila Mahajan and me- Aditi Mahajan, started Dots to Lines and our forte is home decor, mixed media, paper crafting and altered art.  A brief background about us :Sunila Mahajan - has a diploma in commercial art, and displays her artworks in various galleries across the world. She has also worked as a Graphic Designer at Hameed Mugal, Kenya. Aditi Mahajan- With a MSc. in Clinical Psychology and Dip. in Special Education, has taken up arts and crafts since school days and also practiced art therapy when working with children with special needs. She took up an art course from School of Visual Arts, New York. 

Crafting, thus has been a part of daily activities mostly in the form of various altered projects, or making gifts. We run a home decor business by the name of Dots to Lines and we handcraft products using techniques of mixed media and decoupage. We are into paper-crafting, layouts, journaling, album making and scrapbooking as well. Our style of art and craft is a fusion of techniques and usage of vibrant colours. We aim to spread joy. We cater to all home decor needs and personalised gifting.

Henriettes skaperglede

Hi my name is Henriette, I'm married and have four great kids. I live in Haugesund Norway. I started scrapping in 2003, but I have always liked to use paper, have made cards, embellished albums, drawn and painted. I like Vintage and Shabby chic style with vintage pictures, lace, flowers, beads, charms and beautiful paper. I also like to try out new folding techniques.
This hobby gives me much pleasure.
 I am looking forward to being a part of the Design Team.
