Featured Member Interview
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I remember it like it was yesterday :) It's the ever first creative community I found on the internet, back in 2009 and the first project was the plastic beads that I fell in love with!
What projects are you currently working on?
I just finished a Galaxy paint technique on an old drawer
I have more furniture coming in.. table, chairs and some old cabinets too - for those I will use some old italian comics books

What does your craft space look like?
Hahaa, over the last years I moved quite a few times..so my craft space changes and the furniture too.. I do share my space with my partner - he is creative too - print on t-shirts .. we are still settling in the new flat ..
Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?
I will probably answer in a very simple way : Scissors, paint brushes, PVC glue, acrylics, paper - books, magazines, flyers ... glitters and gemstones..
Is it too many?
What do you craft along to?
This is a cool question too - I admire people who can craft at movies or TV shows... I either watch or create .. so it's the music ... Usually from the internet - if I can name the genres - they are mainly electro, jazz or world music ...
Klarushja's Most Popular Projects
I would rather name the 'material' :D - paper - and probably the craft then is decoupage/collage
Lately I'm enjoying decorating furniture, if possible combining the decoupage technique with painting
I'm into interior design in general
But the most challenging as a new craft is sewing for me :)
Klarushja's Top Crafts
If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?
I very much admire the sculpturers - especially who can carve a wood
( I don't think I'd be able to learn that ;)
Other than that I would be very pleased with learning crochetting and make my own clothes - I find it a very elegant craft
Who are your crafting heroes?
I get inspired randomly. But surely admire many crafters - well known and less known - are many to name them ;)
On this site it's defo Cat Morley, Mark Montano, Emi H.
The last 'new' admired by me is Hemgjord (Sweden) - the word means homemade in Swedish :) - The artist real name is - Helena Andreasson - apart from recycled art she is an amazing artist of collages (mandalas) made of magazines
