Guest Designer - Anne Redfern

Please say hello and give a warm welcome to our Guest Designer for the 'All You Need Is LOVE!' challenge. Anne was the Design Team's top pick from the 'Most Memorable Gift' challenge and you can find her fabulous work on her blog Redanne.


Hello, my name is Anne Redfern and my blog is Redanne. I have been crafting in some form or other since childhood. My style is eclectic and ranges from mixed media, 3D to vintage and I also love sewing and knitting. If it is messy crafting though, then so much the better!


Zoe's 'Love' challenge gave me the opportunity to create a mixed media canvas for someone special in my life. I used crackle and acrylic paints, embossing powders, dies, some Tim Holtz Idea-ology and my favourite 'love' quote. If you would like to see more detail please visit my blog....


I would like to say thank you to all at Frilly and Funkie for the opportunity to be Guest Designer today, it has been a real privilege.

To get all the details of Anne's wonderful canvas, just pop on over to her blog. When you are finished we hope you will create something to share in the 'All You Need Is LOVE!' challenge. It is open until 11:55 pm on Tuesday, February 13th and you can find it HERE.

We'll be back this Saturday 3rd February with a new tutorial and next Wednesday, February 7th.

  1. Having seen this stunning canvas in person I can attest to it's absolute beauty - that carefully aged background, the deeply textured heart and the clever use of the pocket watch all combine to make a very special project. Thank you so much for sharing and joining us at Frilly and Funkie Anne xxx
