Getting Started

When I first started scrapping  I didn't even realise there was a name for the art style I was using.  Being the consummate over achiever I didn't start on a small project, no as per usual I thought I would start with something I was passionate about. . .my wedding photos!  I incorporated photos, cards, flowers, leaves, twigs and anything else that I could get my hands on that married with the colour scheme, textures and tones of the entire event.  Yes the whole album weighs a literal ton but it genuinely speaks of the brilliant, colourful day that my partner and I celebrated.
It was only when I mentioned to my sister Susan what I had done that she told me that I was scrapping and that my creation was a scrap book!
So I am an eclectic scrapper and I have been hooked since then.  I scrap any photos and memento's of meaning to me and am proud to say that my scrap booking techniques have evolved dramatically in the past six years.
My approach to scrapping is to inspire people to take out their photos and memories and make them into something that they want to look at and show others; to create memories and beautiful artwork that anyone would be proud to call their own, to extend boundaries of what is acceptable and to challenge myself to highlight a photo artistically; and finally to share moments in time which can be recalled by a simple phrase, texture, image or shade and tone.
I welcome you to my page and hope that you will enjoy visiting me from time to time to check out my latest projects and to share the passion which is scrap booking mania.
Until next time
