We are so pleased to introduce our Just Because Guest Designer Piradee Talvanna who comes to us all the way from Singapore. We thought this collection would be a perfect fit for Piradee's more "grown up" style. Let's get to know her a bit and then she can tell you all about her project...
PT: I’m so a night owl and it’s in the evening that I mostly get my scrapping done. I would be procrastinating the entire day only to start around 5pm.
LYB: Do you have a favorite die cutting system?
PT: That would definitely be my silhouette machine. I remember that it was sitting in the box for about 6/7 months before I first used it and since then, there’s a little bit of silhouette action for all my layouts/projects.
LYB: Computer or handwritten journaling?
PT: It used to be handwritten journaling, but now its typewriter typed. Yeap, with over 10 typewriters in my collection, I got to put them to some good use somehow.
I am thrilled to be sharing some Just Because projects this month. I just adore this sweet collection – the mix of the dark pink and turquoise against the navy and also loving the pops of silver throughout the collection.
For my first project, I used the fun sketch from this month’s challenge and opted to create an 8.5”x11” layout instead. I kept to the base design of the sketch but switched to one photo (unfortunately less space to play with) and also moved the scallop border to the center.
I also included some of the awesome transparency and chipboard embellishments; loving especially the ones with the silver and even added more silver to the layout with sequins (I’m currently addicted to all things metallic and sequins).
We will have more wonderful projects from Piradee this month, but in the meantime, be sure to visit her blog The Scrapper in Me for some daily inspiration.
Have a wonderful and crafty weekend.
