Guest Designer Lisa Griffith - Change is Beautiful

Today we welcome back our October Challenge Winner Lisa Griffith

My name is Lisa Griffith and I live in the USA with my husband and our seven year old son Liam. I adore scrap booking as it combines my two loves, photography and paper crafting. I am the family shutterbug, always taking photos wherever we go, and always planning the next layout, looking for inspiration in the beauty of the light, colors and textures I see all around me.  I love antiques and everything vintage, which is why most Saturday mornings I am out at estate/garages sales, hunting for unique treasures. I love to find things I can incorporate into my work, old sheet music, old book pages, vintage photographs, sewing notions, or bits of lace. When I saw the theme of Novembers challenge, Change is Beautiful, I couldn't help thinking that ever since I hit 40, there have been some changes that I really don't like! Mainly I can't read anything with out glasses, and the sudden appearance of many tiny wrinkles! I know that there is no point in fighting these changes, it's just part of life, so I am trying to accept them gracefully and remember that I have a beautiful family that I adore, and so much to be thankful for, and thats what really matters! I love to create rich textured backgrounds on my layouts with masks, gesso, and lots of inks, paints and flowers. Here I started with  Prima patterned paper and used pieces of old book pages covered in gesso, strongly brewed tea splashes, purple pearl mist, a circle chipboard piece from Blue Fern Studios and some gold micro beads. 

Currently I design Mixed Media kits for The Scrapbook Diaries and I have just been invited to join the Blue Fern Studios Design team for 2014, I am so excited! 

Thanks so much to all the ladies at Berry71Bleu for having me as a guest!

Hugs, Lisa

Founder Marie Jansson says: "In the fall of 2004, a dear friend asked me to join her to a scrapbooking course. From that moment, I became totally amazed and thrilled by all the beautiful papers and decorations in the art of scrapbooking. After some time as a captivated scrapper, I got curious to create my own patterns. I have always had a devotion for color and form. I had access to great printing facility, as I worked at a printers office. Since 2007, I have been blessed to be able to work with my great passion - to design and create colored coordinated paper."
