Carla's Project Gallery

About Carla:

I'm an art teacher originally from New York State and now retired, living in Florida. For many years I have experimented with several areas of creativity. Ever since I was a child, I have enjoyed sewing my own clothes and making designer outfits for my dolls. For several years my husband and I covered arts and entertainment as correspondents for a local newspaper. I enjoyed participating in special events such as the Menendez Birthday Festival, which took place in St. Augustine. For that event I dressed in a 16th century Spanish wardrobe of my own design. I’ve enjoyed the theater arts so much that eventually I tried out and won parts in four local productions. I worked as a scrapbook instructor and paper crafting teacher for a year at Michaels, where I learned many new techniques and used a lot of great new tools! My art work is for sale locally and has been published in a few magazine. I take part in designing cards for challenges and belong to a couple of design teams. I recently got into trading Rolodex and Memorydex Cards. I also began designing a variety of books using paper dolls. I love working with cute images and enjoy putting them in scenes. My go to mediums are Copic Markers and colored pencils. I do enjoy trying out new mediums and techniques. Life right now is full and busy designing lots of books and cards.
