Special Guest Spotlight on Evgenija Medvedera

 Hello everyone!  Today, we are very pleased to feature Evgenia as our Guest Designer for August.  Evgenia was one of our May 2022 winners.

We invite you to get to know Evgenia
 a little better through her interview below.  Please also visit her social links which are listed in her Artist Bio.

Artist Bio 

Hello, my name is Evgenia.  I have been actively scraping for 7 years. I do everything - junk, art journals, notebooks, ATC, postcards.  Now my life has changed dramatically because of the war in my beloved Ukraine, and creativity has become my salvation and medicine.also.   



Q & A with Evgenia

What inspires you?

Inspiration comes from the most unexpected places. Cracks in the ground, the texture of the wall, a bizarre edge of paper that begs to be worked on.

What's your style?  

Most often I create works in an aged style.  I like to create blots, smudges with a solution of coffee. I
use vintage paper and pastes with an aging effect.

And finally, why do you enter art challenges?

Art challenges make the brain work, not stand still. This is a challenge to myself - can I? Especially now, when I am far from my workshop.


Evgenia's Interpretation of our August Main Challenge

All the works in my art journal are like a reflection of different emotional states inside me. So it is this time with this page.

My window paintings are like big adventure plans. Just managed to find myself TODAY. Exactly how to build my want / can / must.

Now is not TOMORROW, There are no adventures, but I so want to open my heart again to the ocean of possibilities.


Thank you Evgenia for sharing this wonderfully textured art journal page with us!  We hope that Evgenia's take on the Main Challenge inspires you to enter this month.

Here's a reminder of our current Main Challenge which you can enter here on the blog, in our Facebook group or on Instagram:

Don't forget that you can find all of our challenge details and extra information, as well as Evgenia's published interview in our new magazine Artful Pages.
