The 12 Designers Of Christmas - Designer #8 Karen Hayselden

Please welcome our 8th Designer, Karen Hayselden.

 Karen has such talent when it comes to putting colour and design together and always manages to pull off something extra special. She made this gorgeous cute snowman for us which is absolutely loaded with texture.


I love the random dotting of soft colour on the surface. The colours she's chosen are beautiful.

Here's a closer look at that yummy texture; 



In making this piece Karen has used,Tim Holtz Distress Inks, re-inkers, distress sprays and distress paints - with a bit of Christmas Ideaology thrown in too - Distress glitter and Dylusions white linen spray.

To see more of Karens fabulous work you can visit her web site here at Kassa.

Thank you so much Karen for showing us your artwork.

Karen is a woman of texture and after going to various workshops of hers, I KNOW that you need to have an open mind about texture, as she puts it into everything she does....I love her work...and long may she reign as Queen of Texture....
