12 Designers Of Christmas *Designer 8* Karen Hayselden

Welcome to the 8th of our amazing Designers, Karen Hayselden. 
I'm so pleased we asked Karen to be part of the 12 Designers as her work is always full of incredible detail and a quirky sense of fun which I love.

She hasn't disappointed here and created this fabulous sign full of texture and richness and given us loads of pictures too.






She's also supplied us with the materials list so you can have a go at your own.


Other materials include a piece of slate, a twig from the garden, some rusty bells, wire and a rusty star all fixed on with a hot glue gun.

If you want to see more of Karen's work you can visit her blog here. 

Thank you Karen

Don't forget to leave a comment here and on the other Designers blog posts if you haven't already, and you'll be put in the pot to win the massive prize at the end.
