Guest Designer, Eva Dobilas...WOW!

I am thrilled to be featuring guest artist, Eva Dobilas.  She is actually the reason why I am designing stamps for Unity Stamp Company.  Eva was the one who introduced me to Angela the owner of Unity.  Eva's designs caught my eye when she used my birdhouse Silhouette die to create a beautiful project I featured her on my blog a few months back.  It is a truly amazing project, and worth looking at again if you haven't had a chance to see it.  What I like about Eva's designs is that she has such a knack for creating such beautiful color combinations, and adding cute little details.  I'm sure you will see what I mean after you look at these WOW cards.  Eva used a combination of Stamps from my collections at Unity, and digital die downloads from the Silhouette machine store.  Thanks, Eva for being the featured artist on my blog...you are incredible!

What got you into paper artistry?
The first time I bought a stamp was about 18 years ago, as a stay at home mom trying to make a little cash and selling cards at school shows.  I sold Christmas cards and bookmarks and I was hooked on embossing, stamping, and coloring.  13 years ago a friend invited me to a scrapbook party, and I started working with pretty papers and layouts, and till today I blame her for all the hoarding I do…hehehe


What is your favorite technique?
I don’t really have a favorite technique; instead I am a lover of all different techniques and love to try anything new that attracts me.  I love Splitcoaststampers for all their challenges for the techniques.


What do you think makes your work unique?
That is a hard question to answer, but I will try my best.  I love the pretty feminine look, semi distressed more with inks.  But I also love the grungy look, although I tend to pretty that up, too..hehehe.  Somehow I manage to add feminine touches to most everything.  Love ribbons, still on the crinkled ribbon craze as you can see from my cards.

What inspires you?
I get inspiration from other artists, blogs I visit, and Etsy is a great site, their daily e-mails sometime trigger the best work out of me.  But really I am mostly inspired by colors and sketches.

Besides crafting...tell a little about yourself... and anything else that might interest readers.
Other than the love of stamping/crafting, I also have 4 boys in my life, my wonderful partner, Michael, who loves me almost unconditionally and I just love him for that, my amazing son, who I am totally crazy about even though he is 20 already and 2 sweet kitties, Fuzzy and Louis, who make me laugh and feel loved every day I spend with them.  I love my life with all the curves and ups and downs it provides me and try to carry my own sunshine wherever I go, at least most of the time and love to help and inspire others to do the same.

From time to time I make recommendations of products that I love to use, or products that I have designed. Occasionally, manufacturers send me products to play with. They have not obligated me to show them on my blog or review them. I only make positive remarks about those things that I truly love and enjoy to use. Everyone's personal experience with various products may be different, as we all use things in different ways. I am not compensated for these remarks, and merely pass on my opinion to you as a reader. I hope you find my opinions valuable.
