Please welcome a talented guest from USA!



Hi my name is Miranda Edney and I’m from the beautiful state of Florida! Crafting is just engrained in my system, one of those special things that make me feel complete. ! I have a wonderful boyfriend who makes my life so much fun, and truly supports me in all of my endeavors. Besides crafting , I have a love for all things beach/water related, and love anything adventurous. I will forever be a kid at heart, and enjoy anything from theme parks with scary roller coasters, to playing hide and seek at night with my niece and nephew. One other passion of mine is to cook! Oh and eat too Lol!


When did you discover paper craft, and why do you still create within this craft? I always did some sort of crafting growing up, but never truly found my niche until my honey's birthday a couple of  years ago. I wanted to create something special for him, so my first scrapbook album was the result.  Then I started looking online at YT and blogs, and just was incredibly inspired to keep going and try new things. Crafting is just an extension of me, I cannot imagine my life without it!

Where do you find inspiration to your work?
There are soooo many things that inspire me! Anything rustic , antique, or "grunge" from day to day life inspire me. I also get an immense amount of inspiration from other crafters and PINTEREST! Pinterest is my "go to" when I need some mojo!

Where, and when do you prefer to create, and how do you prefer to have it around you?
I prefer to create at night, something about darkness kicks in my creativity. I don't have a particular way I like my settings to be, I tend to zone everything out anyways Lol. I do like for others to be around, my sweet little niece is my crafting buddy when she is down for the summers, that is my favorite!


How does your scrap place usually look like?
My scrappy room is a mess 90% of the time Lol, I clean it up only for it to be a disaster again after the next project! My honey doesn't understand how I can create in such disarray Lol. I also display all of my pieces that I keep in my room , along with a ton of projects fellow crafters have sent me. Its so inspiring to walk in and just see art everywhere! Oh and coffee is a must! always have my coffee!
  
Do you have any favorite Prima – Ingvild Bolme line products?
My favorite Ingvild Bolme products ( as if I can pick just one!!!) are def products from the Junkyard Findings and Shabby Chic Resins collections. I absolutely HAVE to have them! They are an addiction Lol, a deep addiction! They just pull any project "together" and I LOVE them! Also there isn't a project I create that I don't use the Distress Tool. MUST HAVE!


Now let's take a look at Miranda's beautiful works of art!


Heart Plaque
Above: A beautiful decorated heart filled with wonderful Prima products and vintage finds, everything so well placed together to a perfect design!

Above: A close-up showing some amazing fussy cuts and a Shabby Chic Resin Treasure "Windows". Look at the background textures Miranda made using different techniques!

Above: The Shabby Chic Resin Treasures "Window Frame" pack where Miranda found the white resin window she used on her beautiful heart.


Romantique altered book box
Above: Miranda decorated a book box in a romantique and shabby chic style, and used a Shabby Chic Resin Treasure "Fairies" on the front center. This box looks just amazing! I love how she covered the box with sweet looking lace and her flower cluster is just wonderful, so romantique!

Above: Miranda added a sweet little Shabby Chic Resin corner in the corner, and added touches of gold to it!

Above: The details on the side of the box gives a hint of a clean vintage look, perfect together with the romantique shabby chic style!


Altered canvas
Above: I just love the colors Miranda used on this wonderful canvas! It's designed so it look's like a kind of wonderland, almost frosty, just amazing! And look at all the little details used!

Above: A close-up showing some of all the wonderful details Miranda added to this amazing canvas. Loads and loads of sweet embellishment from Prima, all so perfectly placed together. I love how she added the butterfly in the resin frame!

Above: Look, Miranda broke up the resin frame and used it in parts! I love that idea, and shows that the resins can be used in many different ways! So clever, and so decorative! 


Steampunk Gumball Machine
Above: Well, there is a lot that can be altered, if you just get the ideas, and Miranda sure have the ideas! Here she altered a gumball machine in a cool mix of steampunk and shabby chic style! She used lots of wonderful Prima products on this amazing altered piece, and lots of pieces from Junkyard Findings, Shabby Chic Resin and metal Treasures!

Above: Look at how perfectly Miranda added the metal pieces from Junkyard Findings to her gumball machine together with beautiful flowers. She also used one black and one white clock hand together - Love it!

Above: The "Clock Faces" Miranda used on her amazing altered gumball machine!

Above: The Junkyard Findings "Clock Hands" Miranda used on her wonderful gumball machine. 

Miranda not only make amazing altered pieces, but also do wonders when creating layouts. Here is one great sample:


U & me
Above: A beautiful layout done by the talented Miranda. I just love her bold stitches made of ribbons, and her background texture looks just awesome! 


I hope you all loved today's share as much as I did. Thank you so much everyone for your visit, and a huge special thanks to sweet Miranda for being my guest today and for sharing her inspirational works with us all!

I absolutely love Mirandas work, she is an amazingly talented artist, her YouTube videos are never to be missed and the resin pieces are used on virtually every piece that Miranda creates. I have also watched Miranda live on Ustream and she is electric. Yes I am a big big fan and I just would love to have just the tiniest amount of her talent to be able to create beautiful projects, but I could never ever reach the heights of this very accomplished young lady. xxx Such a lovely post about your guest designer, thank you. xxx
