Welcome our January guest ...

Please welcome our wonderful guest designer this month, Rikki Graziani with her amazing layout inspired by our artwork and CITY themed challenge for January.

I loved this painting , the black with the pops of vibrant colour, this is what I tried to recreate with shimmers and texture paste for my background and of course you need a little pop of gold.

Hi my name is Rikki Graziani and I am honoured to be asked to be your guest designer this month. I have been scrapbooking for over 19 years but really got into after my first son was born in 2002. I have been madly obsessed by scrapbooking for almost half of my life. I never thought that a hobby that I took up as a teenager would still be fulfilling as an adult, but I continue to be inspired day after day. My children Tristan (14), Ethan (12) and Amelia (6) and I have been trying to make more effort in stepping in front of the camera, and to DH (Scott) disgust doing the same with him! 2011 marked my first offer of a place on a design team (LSS), and I am very blessed to be able to share this craft will all the great people I meet. Scrapping has become not just a community but almost a sisterhood - a way to share and bond. Let's just say I get far more from scrapping than beautiful layouts.

I currently design for Kaisercraft, Scrapmatt and Shop and Crop.

My favourite things are fussy cutting…. I know I can hear people moan now but for me I love even if you have a limited budget you can make an amazing layout out of a single piece of pp, plus I find it relaxing to do in front of the tv so it’s ready to go.  The next thing I love to do is layering instant dimension and you once again don’t need a lot or you can, love the versatility. I also love to do mixed media and love when I can do a fusion between paper ranges and this style of scrapping.
