Birds Of a Feather

Please help me welcome our Guest Designer for this month.

Would you like to know a little about Kathleen well please keep reading as we asked her some questions which she kindly answered.

Q. What do you like to do in your spare time apart from scrapbooking?
A. I love to travel in my spare time.  I love meeting new people, learning new cultures, eating foods I have never tried at home.  I love to photograph my new new experiences and share them with my friends and family.  Gardening is another love.  Though here in Texas it is rather difficult with all the heat unless you relish cacti and I don’t!

Q. What photos do you like to use?  
A. Primarily, I use photos of my family.  They are my inspiration and delight.  When I open my scrap albums they’re the faces I like to see and the memories I cherish.

Q. Who is your scrapbooking Idol?  
A. Oh my, this is a difficult question since through the years the styles change and artists come and go.  Today I enjoy the stylings of Di Garling.  Her use of color and composition are exquisite.  But….then you have ladies like Evgeniya Zakharova or Galina Sazonova who take scrapbooking to a new level.  They all challenge and inspire me to step outside of the box.

Q. What products do you like using at the moment?
A. Mix media products!  I love to dabble with paints and modelling pastes and beads etc.  I love to see different textures on a layout.  They offer such dimension, movement and interest to a project.

Q. What made you choose scrapbooking?  
A. When my daughter was a senior in high school I wanted to create something special and memorable for her graduation.  There was this scrapbooking store down the road and I feel in love with the papers and the design team layouts scattered about for inspiration.  I was hooked ever since and that was many moons ago!  Lol!

We also sent Kathleen our current Mood Board and here is what she created

Thank you Kathleen for not only sharing you talent with us this month but also a little bit about yourself.
