And thanks for having me as your Guest Designer for April, well girls my name is Maria aka Capswife as I’m known on some forums, I’m a military wife and mom to 8 so scrapping is a form of escape in my life, I tend to go into the scrapping zone on too many occasions…….
I was introduced to scrapping via a Creative memories workshop, but then kind of found my way into the real kind of scrapping thru Scrap with V workshops, my gosh I am so thankful that I found this place and went in other directions….
My style is totally shabby in nature I love to bring mixed media into my work, so in the last year or so I really have come into my own style and I’m not afraid to try something new anymore, from vintage papers, to recycled packaging everything that I look at I think hmmm can I use this in my work lol…. Nothing is safe from me anymore….
I’ve been on a few design teams two for challenge blogs and one for an Australian one but I have stepped down and am now focusing on my own things and just creating OTP’s doing international OTP kind of swaps and doing monthly challenges, I have my own little forum which I have created as my home base mainly it’s a place for me to come and share techniques, inspirational people and places and just chat with my friends here is the link if you want to stop by and say hello http://thescrapartistwithin.forummotion.com/index.htm
Here are some of Marias stunning pages and projects:
Now I apologise for all these being thumbnail size, Maria sent them to me via photobucket as I think her camera or computer was playing up and she couldn't email me directly :(
If I try and increase the size that just blurrr out of focus. You can view Maria's work on her blog:
