Agnieszka Malyszek’s cards have caught my eye for a long time now so I’m very happy to introduce her as the spotlight guest today!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started crafting: I was born and raised in Poland and moved a couple of years ago to Manchester, England. I always loved being creative and about 6 years ago I started my paper crafting adventure by making cards for family and friends. I’ve been completely addicted to this hobby ever since. During this time, I served as a member of several design teams and have guest designed projects for a number of others. I have been published in numerous craft publications and contributed to several craft related classes. I would describe my style as ‘eclectic’, I love clean and simple with a touch of ink/paint splatters.
Favorite thing to create: Definitely cards are my favourite to create but I also love making home decor, tags, and handmade gift wrappings.
What do you love about cardmaking? I just love being creative. For me, cardmaking is fun and relaxing and my favourite aspect of paper crafting is creating something unique, original, and made with a personal touch.
5 fun facts about yourself:
1. I love riding trains, especially steam trains.
2. I love watching tennis and figure skating, I wanted to be a figure skater as a child because I loved their costumes.
3. I love fresh flowers and making compositions from them.
4. Coffee and croissant is my favourite combination for breakfast.
5. I have graduated from Maritime Academy in Poland.
HELLO CARD by Agnieszka Malyszek
My absolute favourite technique is watercolouring at the moment and I’m using it almost on every card.
CELEBRATE by Agnieszka Malyszek
For this card I used some loose watercolouring to add colours to the stamped images.
THANK YOU CARD by Agnieszka Malyszek
Clean, simple, and elegant is my favourite style. I often try to stick to the “less is more” approach.
THINKING OF YOU ALWAYS by Agnieszka Malyszek
I love adding splatters of water, ink, paint, or mists to my projects. Effects are always unpredictable and surprising and that’s what makes them so cool!
YOU COLOR MY WORLD CARD by Agnieszka Malyszek
My last card was inspired my “Wycinanki” – Polish folk paper cuts. I draw inspiration from everywhere around me.
Thanks for stopping by today and getting to know Agnieszka and her very lovely style!
