Guest Designer Fena

We are excited to welcome Guest Designer Fena, our August Challenge Winner, to the blog today!

Hello everyone, I am so thrilled and honored to be Guest Designer this month at Berry71Bleu. I would like to thank the entire team of Berry71bleu for this opportunity.

I am a mom to a 5 year old and wife to a wonderful husband who understands my passion for art. I am basically a Bachelor in Engineering (in computers) by profession and into software development and testing. Yes, I am a Techie!! But I always had that creative bent towards arts and crafts since childhood and when I found this magical world of scrapbooking I found my creative outlet.

I am passionately in love with mixed media and art journaling is my soul. I don’t have a definite style yet but I see that I do mixed media layouts incorporating paints, flowers, embellishments and stamping.

The challenge theme this month is by Marivic and it is to make a project telling about the ‘THINGS WE LOVE.’ For me, the list is endless, but Art has always been my passion and it’s one thing that I would never part with. When I am not doing layouts I am always on my laptop or tablet sipping a cup of coffee and yeah I do love chocolates (lol!!).

So in my layout, for my photo I choose to incorporate all the things I love. I took the photo myself as I couldn’t find any photo that depicts exactly what I love. There’s coffee, paint brushes, a tablet and dictionary pages and few chocolates.

I used the 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk patterned paper.

I have made by background with lots of mediums consisting of stencils, paints and gesso. Then went on adding embellishments and flowers.

It was really a fun challenge and hope I have inspired you with this lovely theme. You can find more details on my blog thepapermemories.blogspot.com.
