A Fond Graphic 45 Farewell to the Captivating Altered Art of Katie Zoey Ho!

  KatieZoeyHo_Graphic45_Cityscapes_CoffeeExpressSuitcaseNo9_10

Katie Zoey Ho is so creative! She has a wonderful imagination brimming over with ideas and we have been so honored to work with her on our Design Team for the past 2 years.We love the incredible projects she shares today showing off her altered art skills. Everything she creates is memorable and beautiful and filled with so much detail - often hidden away so every piece is a treasure chest of fun and creativity! Let's find out how Katie stays creative:

Katie's Cheeky Pic

1. How do you cre8time for crafting?

Sometimes when you are caught up with a lot of stuffs at the same time, it can be difficult to find time. Before I really get myself started to craft, I’ll always mark the idea and visualize the project at the back of my mind then schedule a time to craft out the project. 

2. What is your favorite G45 Collection?

Too many to list; practically every single collection. However, to name my most favourite, it will be the Botanical Tea paper collection.

3. How has your crafting style evolved in the last year, and where do you see your path heading?

It has certainly shaped the way I think towards creativity. When I just started to craft, it’s really just crafty work with no ideas and concepts behind. As I evolve gradually, I started to see the other aspect of creativity. I became more organized in my thoughts and often want to work within a concept or idea. Creating a project becomes part of a storytelling process for me and I find this works really well for me. I may move out of conventional scrapping and crafting and gear more towards creative works that speak about my story; creating works that will inspire people in almost every aspects, whenever possible and within my very best.
