Today we introduce to you Karolina Stopyra - an extremely talented artist & crafter 
from Poland.  She really needs no introduction as her brand - 3rd Eye Crafts
is testament to her amazing creative talents!  Here she is!!

"Hello!   I'm Karolina Stopyra {aka Drycha} & I live in Warsaw, the capital of Poland.
 I have always created – drawing, painting, taking photos, etc.
 In spring 2008 I found scrapbooking & started to create albums & cards.
 With time I jumped more & more into mixed media and I just LOVE it!.
 I love to learn new techniques, experiment with new medias & bring it all together.
 I love to create a lot of things such as layouts, cards, altered art, jewellery & art dolls.

I have been featured in scrapbook & crafting magazines & am the owner & designer

 of my own Polish craft brand 3rd Eye Crafts.   We manufacture rubber stamps, 

chipboard, shadowboxes, mounting blocks, stickers, stencils & flairs. You can find me, 
my projects & mytutorials on my blog & I welcome your visit!
You can subscribe to my You-Tube channel HERE.

This is what Drycha has to say about her project :-
"Riikka's inspirations is so-not-Drycha's-style but I gathered medias on my desk
 & started creating! Playing with all these layers & medias was pure fun!
 I also used white crackle paint & repeated the circle motif from the mood board.
The butterflies reminded me of the Lumiere paint in shade "Halo blue gold" which is
 SO shimmery & opalescent - from blue through greens to gold - amazing effect! 

Despite the use of many elements from Riikka's mood board - page stayed in my style :) 
You can see whole creating process (excl. putting paper scraps on the background ;) 
by watching my video. Hope you enjoy it!  Let me know what you think!!

Well I know what I think!  I think this is one of the most beautiful creations I have seen 
using this board!!  And what does it show you?!?  That NO MATTER WHAT YOUR STYLE
 you can be inspired by the Scrap Around The World boards & create with us every month!! 
 Thanks so much Drycha!!!
