The Pixel Maven

Welcome to the Retreat!

I’m Nicole Watt, aka The Pixel Maven. Why Pixel Maven? I spend lots of time on the computer designing great websites. But I aspire to be the master of the pixel – the single color square upon which all design is built. That’s where papercrafting comes in. It’s my time to step away from the digital and hone my design skills with good ‘ol fashioned paper and ink.
(secret: I LOVE to fussy-cut!)

Color on color, shape on shape, texture on texture, a project is built from all these single building blocks into a beautiful expression of art.

I am honored and excited that you’ve decided to join this journey with me. Whether you just follow along with my creative adventures, or you choose to take part by creating, sharing and trying my projects, or joining my creative team, the Maker Mavens, my goal is to provide you inspiration every week!
