Meet Lizzie Dzadiek
I’m fairly new to the Sam’s design team, joining 10 months ago and loving every minute of it. It’s exciting to see Sam designing a collection as we get to see it develop, with a sneak peak of it before we receive it..
One of my favourite projects that I made was from the woodland collection, which gave me a chance to get messy with acrylics. Using a cocktail stick to apply various colours of paint in a vertical line then sliding a ruler at an angle down the paint to form a background (just seen in the stamped toadstool image).
I’m also addicted to embossing powders and even use them when I’m painting on canvas, here I’ve used some on the mushroom on the first tag.
I was lucky enough to have joined the DT just as Sam was launching a new stamp set which has now become a firm favouite of mine, whether I’m card making or creating mixed media, here you can see them stamped on to acrylic paint. Of course MDF is great at taking other mediums really well even metalic pencils which i have used for my latest project that I’ve posted in the Samantha K Mixed Media and Crafting Facebook Group.
Thanks for stopping by and checkout the facebook group to see more of the dt makes.
I posted yesterday on Facebook and since then I have been messaged by a few people asking what i would pick 3D printer wise. So i thought i would share this here and there incase anyone is interested.
These are my opinions only and i would 100% recommend anyone do their own research before purchasing a 3D printer. There are lots of other brands out there, Anycubic and Creality were two other brands i looked at, but for me Elegoo always seem to be slightly ahead or the same specs for less money and they have a great reputation in the industry.
If i couldn’t have got the Saturn, I would have gone for the Mars 2 pro, however the mars 2 is just as good if you want to save some pennies, the main differences between these two, are the pro has a very marginly bigger build area, has air filtration, has aluminum vat and knobs rather than plastic and a few more bits. None affect the quality of the models that come off though as both have the same light source/screen.
I would not go for the Mars (not linked) as the improvements between that and the 2 were quite a jump, including the much better mono screen and its all about the screen with these machines ? (well kinda lol)
I have linked the two mentioned below on Amazon as this is the best price i found, especially as a prime member and today being the last day of prime deals you get a chunk off, in fact with your savings you can get a bottle of resin for the printer and still have change from the normal price
Hope this helps (remember the prime member prices are only whilst prime day is on!)
Mars 2 £200 – £152 if prime member https://amzn.to/3j1IcVp
Mars 2 pro £280 – £224 if prime member https://amzn.to/2STfono
This is the resin i have purchased to start me £34 for 1000ml – £27.20 if prime member https://amzn.to/3j3o8lE
