Special Guest Spotlight on

We are thrilled to showcase the amazing work of yet another
Special Guest Designer here at More Than Words!

Keren Tamir is very well-known in the scrapbooking community as, 
a very talented designer for several prominent manufacturers
as well as a Prima Marketing Educator, title to which so many of us aspire.
She travels the world spreading to others this special passion that we all share!

When we thought up our November challenge, we immediately thought
of her as our Special Guest to bring forth our word and creative challenge combo.

Let's learn a little more about Keren through her own words:

Hi everyone! My name is Keren Tamir and I live near Toronto, Canada.
I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my art
and a mother of two amazing kids, a 16 year old boy and an 11 year old girl.

I've been scrapbooking for 15 years and I've loved art since I was a child.
I love to create an experiment with many different mediums and techniques.
My style is always evolving and that's one of the things I love about this art.

One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories 
and photos of my children. However, over the last couple of years, I've diverted
myself into the mixed media world and love combining them together.
I've developed my own mixed media style which I love sharing with my students.
I love to create and I'm passionate about what I do and that's why I love
to teach techniques of mixed media and art.

Here is a reminder of our November OUTDOORS & WOODGRAIN Main Challenge followed by Keren's gorgeous project which was inspired by it.

Read below as Keren describes in her own words how she was inspired
by our word and how she chose to incorporate our creative challenge:

I am delighted to be a guest designer for the More Than Words challenge blog.

For me the OUTDOORS always remind me of nature and so I wanted to incorporate 
nature into my canvas. I used flowers, butterflies and real natural objects to give
it a natural feel. I'm very thankful for everything in my life so I wanted to 
incorporate that into the sentiment of this canvas.

I also loved getting inspired by the challenge board and the creative challenge 
as I love using WOODGRAIN patterns in my projects. 
I used the woodgrain pattern as the background to my canvas.

Below is the video tutorial on how I created this project:

How fabulous is Keren's shaker mixed media canvas!?
The WOODGRAIN background is absolutely stunning
and all the natural elements that Keren has added as
embellishments evoke so well the whole OUTDOORS feel.

Let's take a look at some details:

A big THANK YOU to Keren for joining us 
as our November Special Guest!

We hope that you will take inspiration from Keren's creation
and that you will play along with our November Main Challenge.
