Our wonderful June guest ...

Please welcome our guest designer this month, Kripa Koushik with her amazing interpretation of our artwork for June.

The challenge prompt this month made me want to scrap a special photo. I've made layouts of this photo before, yet I want to make more. This photo is from the day my older son met his younger brother for the first time.

Let me try and explain how I’ve tried to express my emotions through colour & texture in this layout. When I look at this photo, time just stops for me (depicted by the black and white background) and I’m taken over by a feeling of love, joy and amazement (soft delicate – hand drawn flowers, lace, hearts, vellum) , probably similar to what my boys experienced that moment! The stars are my prayer to God to shower his blessing on my boys and our family.

I’ve recently setup my youtube channel and prepared a short video for this layout. Hope you enjoy, I will be delighted if you leave me a comment after watching. Thank you

Hello ARTastic fans, my name is Kripa Koushik. I took up scrapbooking about 3 years ago and instantly fell in love with messy mixed media supplies – paint, gesso, texture paste. I’m still exploring my preferred style and enjoy light bright colours as well as grungy deep colours. As long as the colours and embellishments assist with telling the story of the piece, I’m content for the moment. 

You can see more of my work on my blog: 

Here are two of my recent favourites:
