Welcome to our Guest Designers...
I am Jaz Lee from Singapore. I am a SAHM with 3 precious crazy adorable kiddos.They are my source of inspirations most of the time.
I have been scrapping for 4years now and loving every moment of it. I have also ventured into teaching and it is definitely a great feeling to be able to share what I love to do most with people out there and seeing all the smiles. It is amazing how this scrapbooking journey of mine has brought me so many friends. I had an awesome opportunity to conduct a class in Japan, Osaka in 2010 and Malaysia in 2011. I am a designer and an educator at LSS Laine's Papeterie and Papermarket, whereby I design and teach every month.
My work,I will say, I don't have one definite style,but if I have to describe it, I would describe it as a "beautiful mess". I like to clutter the page up with papers and embellishments into one organized piece. And I always think it is exhilarating to have the freedom to greet each piece of work as a challenge, to think up new ideas and be as creative as possible.
I love pretty papers and lovely vintage embellishments, therefore when I was invited by Marivic to be the GDT for March, I was so excited. Thank you so much for this awesome opportunity. .I hope to spread the love and faith of scrapbooking through my work.
Hi!! I'm Marilyn Rivera and I live in Puerto Rico a Tropical island in the Caribbean with my husband Israel(we've been 20 years married) and my two teenagers Alexander and Paola Sofia. I'm a Fashion Designer so during the day I'm surrounded by fabrics, sewing machines, threads and dress forms and when I'm not playing with fabrics, it's with papers...I love to create! In my pages you will see a lot of techniques that I made in my work(dresses) like a pleat or a draping. I love mix papers with fabrics, lace, feathers and pearls ...feminine touches are important on my pages. My sister Karen introduced me to this beautiful hobby 4 years ago and I Loved it immediately!!!I and now It's a therapy for me! You can see my work...http://marilynrivera.blogspot.com/....Thank you Maviric for this great opportunity!!!!
Here is a Flower tutorial from Marilyn:
It's Marilyn here...I would like to show you how I altered these flowers that come in different sizes to give them dimension and a real look.
These are the flowers and they come in different sizes. I'm going to use for each altered flower three of these flowers in two different sizes.
For example: 2 medium flowers and 1 large flower or 2 small flowers and 1 medium flower.
I made a 1/8 hole in the center of each flower.
Then I cut along each petal in each flower.
I added some tiny pearls in the center of the flower and put a bit of adhesive.
Then started to give form with my fingers...
I punched the 1/8 hole in the middle of the big flower.
Put the altered flower inside the big one.
Add a bit of adhesive.
This is the result.
And this is how the altered flowers look.
♥♥♥♥♥ Thank you so much to Jaz and Marilyn for a job well done. ♥♥♥♥♥
