Getting to know ...

Each month one of our team will either introduce themselves and their lovely work to you with a few questions and answers or alternatively inspire you with a little tutorial, tip or trick to help you in your creative pursuits.

This month we introduce ...

Australia



How long have you been scrapbooking and what first got you started?

I started scrapping about 14 years ago, when my daughter decided to have a go at scrapbooking as a school project. I was never going to take up scrapbooking, as I already had done so many different crafts, and had so many unfinished projects (still do – lol). However, the thought of being able to complete a project reasonably quickly was appealing, so yep, I dove in and have been doing it ever since.



How would you describe your personal scrapbooking style?

I really don’t know how to describe my style, as I like to have a go at everything. I love adding mixed media to my pages, but sometimes the page won’t suit that, so I will just do traditional scrapbooking. Someone told me the other day that I have a softness to my layouts, and that’s what she likes about them. However, if I need to, I will do grungy as well. I think you would call me an eclectic scrapper, or maybe a jack of all trades.



Which colour are you drawn to the most and do you know why?

I have always loved blue, but it doesn’t always feature on my pages. I love working with tones of orange at the moment, and for some strange reason, I have picked up green into some of my work, which was traditionally a no go zone for me. I think I will fluctuate with colours. It would have been easier for me to answer the question of colours I am not drawn to – PURPLE – I just can’t do it!



Typically how many photos do you put on your layout?

Typically I am a one photo scrapper, but I will add more if the challenge or layout needs it. I find with one photo, I can become more artistic, it also allows for more journaling.



What is your best piece of advice for someone just starting out in this craft?

There is no right or wrong. Do what feels right to you, and try not to copy exactly what someone else has done – you often feel disappointed that it doesn’t look the same. The idea is to create something that you like.




You still have time until the end of the month to upload your take on our SILVER LIGHT challenge.

All details are on the blog sidebar. We'd love to see what you can do with our wonderful colour this month.

This month we introduce ...

Australia


Hi Scrap Friends,

As part of my DT role with White with ..1 I'm on the blog today sharing a little about myself and a little peek into my scrapping space!

Please enjoy and of course, feedback is always welcome!

***

How would you describe your personal scrapbooking style?

I describe my style as PPM: Paper + medium - I'm not truly mixed media but my layouts will almost always include some medium, ie acrylic paint, texture paste, sprays/mists, inks and Distress Crayons.

How long have you been scrapbooking and what first got you started?

My mum was a Creative Memories consultant 15+ years ago - I started then. I took a break for marriage and babies but came back and joined the digital world in 2014.


Which colour are you drawn to the most and do you know why? 

It fluctuates regular, I've recently been through stages of yellow followed by a stage where I created a lot in turquoise/aqua. I'm definitely drawn to brights. I really struggle with neutrals and pastels.

Typically how many photos do you put on your layout? 

Typically one or two. The creative process for me is an artistic release with the bonus of being a memory recorded so I'm drawn to layouts with one to two photos and a pleasing balance of white space and creativity.


What crafting tool can’t you live without?

Probably my Scotch ATG - It's big and bulky but it seriously saves so much time because you don't have to peel the backing off the adhesive! LOL 

If you could only add only one embellishment to your page what would it be? 

Probably stickers - They are so versatile, backgrounds, titles, embellishing - so many uses.

I love to look at other peoples craft rooms, so I thought I'd share a peek into mine ...

I've given you the real version of my space - toy cars and all!











Late last year, I also did a video tour of my craft space.

Here's the video, if you'd prefer a live view.

(About 5 minutes in the tour starts :)

I hope you enjoyed the peek into my space.


Thanks for visiting.


You still have time until the end of the month to upload your take on our LAVENDER LANE challenge.
