INTERNATIONAL GUEST DESIGNER #13 | TUSIA LECH

Hi Lovelies,
This month we have an International Guest Designer that plays a big part in the Scrapbooking industry.  She is the lady behind the beautiful brand that is 7dots Studio.  Please welcome Tusia Lech.


"Scrapbooking fills my whole life – it is all around me – in my private life and in my job career, as I am the owner of 7 Dots Studio and also an eager scrapbooker . I love the process of creation – I have created things since early childhood – all kinds of handmade things always attracted me. I cannot imagine my life without making some art. Even if I leave for a weekend, I always take my small “art-bag”, filled with art-journal supplies.
I love all kinds of media – if I would have to define my style, I would say that media are the only constant thing. My favourite colours are fresh, bold greens, blues and pinks, but at the same time I just love delicate, pale hues of beige, rose and white. However there is something in my projects, what can be found always – a positive, feminine style.
I am lucky enough to be a designer in a few very creative places. I love drinking coffee, reading books, walking through the forest, watching flowers on the meadow, basking in the autumn sun and being deep in my inner world. I can say that I am a happy person and wouldn’t change a single thing in my life.



"The nature of women is very complex. We are fragile but also tough. We are delicate but determined too. For my layout I have chosen a photo of mine in Halloween disguise. How often we are "in disguise" in real life... The whole composition of embellishments was meant to show the opposites, that live inside us: delicate subtle flowers, light feathers and rusty distressed metallic elements. Thank you for inviting me as Guest Designer - the moodboard is very inspiring and during my creative process many interesting thoughts came to the surface."
Hugs,
Tusia"

JULY HOMEGROWN GUEST DESIGNER #13 | DAWN LEWIS

Hi Lovely Scrap the Girls followers,

This month I have a Homegrown Guest Designer that you may recognise from TV...Please welcome Dawn Lewis.



Dawn is a professional crafter, which is exactly as cool as it sounds.

Working out of her home studio, accompanied by Quality Control Kitty, Dawn creates projects for craft magazines, runs an online cardmaking supply store, keeps up with 2 YouTube channels and does some pretty cool freelance design work (including Australian Girl, Semco, Francheville, Milford Threads & DMC to name a few). You may remember her from her days hosting Scrap It TV, Australia's very own papercrafting television show. Dawn teaches craft classes at her local sewing machine centre on the NSW Central Coast, and recently was a speaker at The Artful Business Conference. She believes that craft of any kind is good for the soul, the mind and the hands, and that when you master the basics you can go on to break all the rules!


Here is Dawn's Layout:




And this is what she had to say:
I know you can't tell from the black & white photo ... but the bodice of my wedding dress was red, and my veil was gold. I guess I've always been drawn to unusual things, and my wedding day was going to be no exception to that rule!!! This mood board was just so "me", and I was drawn to the feather motif and deep moody colours, though I did brighten them ... it was a happy occasion afterall đŸ˜€ Absolutely every item on this page came from my stash, some pieces are over a decade old, but I love how it all came together. The black, red and cream cardstock is all leftover bazzil from old projects ... nothing goes to waste on my papercrafting desk!!!

Go and check out everything Dawn has been up to...Here are her social media links.

JULY MOODBOARD CHALLENGE | DARK MOON

Hi Ladies.

A new month and it's time for a new challenge.  This month it's a moodboard to inspire you. Remember, you just need to take inspiration.  You do not have to incorporate something from every image.  Just pick things that appeal to you.  This moodboard challenged some of the Design team so even the best of the best get challenged.  Don't over think it was my advice to them and also to you.
I can't wait to see what you come up with.  I have titled this one "Dark Moon"

Here are some Design Team inspiration layouts for you...







As you can see, all the girls have very different styles and have interpreted this moodboard in very different ways.  Take it as inspiration and think outside of your comfort zone.

I cannot wait to see all the entries this month. I was so excited to put together this moodboard.  I hope that you see something in it that gets you thinking too.

Oh, and this months challenge is sponsored by The Resin Rainbow.  This is one that you want to win.  Go check out the stuff Janet has for sale...It's awesome.
