Rachel Greig creates beautiful beautiful stamps which I love for a long time. In February last year I had the fortune to teach with her at an event in France and I totally loved her- she is fun and an aweosome teacher, too bad she is living so far away- but maybe I see her at CHA this year.
Rachel is a photographer and rubber stamp artist from Australia. She has been involved in the scrapbook and creative arts field for over 10 years. Rachel has a Bachelor of Visual Arts degree, is a Ranger Certified Educator, and the proud owner and designer of Darkroom Door rubber stamps and papercraft products.
Rachel has been published in many books and magazines with her photography articles and craft projects, including Somerset Studio, The Stampers Sampler, Take Ten, Craft Stamper, Scrapbooking Memories, Paper Crafts, Scrapbooking & Beyond, Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers and Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft to name a few. She has also appeared on QVC UK and makes regular appearances on Scrap It TV.
Rachel loves combining rubber stamps and photography in her projects, using lots of ink, paint, and stamping techniques. She enjoys sharing her ideas, experimenting with new techniques, and encouraging her students to unlock the artist within!
Rachel resides on the Central Coast in Australia with her husband Stewart, and children Ethan and Zoë. Rachel enjoys teaching photography, mixed media and stamping workshops throughout the world.
I am so excited to be a part of Creative Jump Start 2013! January is one of my favourite times of the year – it’s a new beginning, a time to start fresh and find new challenges and goals for the upcoming year. Here in Australia it’s the middle of summer, so I’m spending a lot of time with my family at the beach enjoying the sunshine. Anyone else who lives in the southern hemisphere will know how difficult it can be to get inspired and motivated to create during the summer months, so I’m really excited to help inspire you to keep on creating– whether it’s during the day to escape the midday heat or at night on those nice summer evenings. For all our northern hemisphere friends, rug up, grab yourself a hot chocolate and keep on creating!
Today I’ll be sharing 3 of my favourite techniques to use with rubber stamps. These are suitable for any stamper – beginner to advanced – and are a whole lot of fun! I hope you’ll enjoy the video – thanks so much for watching!
