Life has been hectic, but I have been wanting to tell you a little more about our new Design Team Members.
Please accept my apologies for these introductions that are loooong overdue!!
So without further adieu, here are the first lot of ladies I would like to introduce to you, as well as show you some of their work. They are a really super bunch and I am so pleased that they are on the team.
Hi! My name is Arantzazu, I have been scrapbooking since march 2010 and I am still addicted to it!
I love creating LOs, mixed media proyects and mini albums.
I don't have an own style, it depends in the proyect I'm working on, I love changing styles....learning diferent technics, using new elements....
That's all! :)
Here is a little taste of Arantzazu's work.
My name is Alicja "Asica" Panewka. In scrapbooking world I'm known as "asica.p". I was born and rised in small, beatutiful polish town - Cieszyn. Following my heart last year I moved to another beautiful city - Galway in Ireland where I live with three lovely boys: my partner and two sons.
Arts and crafts are with me since I remember. 8 years ago I found scrapbooking and that was first day of my new life. This is not only hobby. For me this is passion, this is addiction, this is way of my life. I'm creating different projects: cards, albums, boxes, sometimes mixed media too.
I was a DT member for few polish companies: Rapakivi, I kropka, Studio75, The MiniArt and guest designer for Scrapandmade, Lemonade, Crafthouse, Galeria Rae. Now I'm a brand ambassador of Scrapiniec (first polish chipboard producer).
I'm very happy and proud to be a part of Scrap Africa Design Team.
Here is some of Asica's eye candy.
My name is Athanasia, I live in Greece, I have a 5 years old daughter, a 6 months old son and a very supportive and understanding husband. I am a music teacher in elementary school and in my spare time, when I am not playing the piano, I love making handicrafts, felting, altering things and of course scrapbooking.
My love for arts and my cultural worries pushes me constantly into researching and producing new ways of expression and creativeness. My first steps into scrapbooking began with some videos on YouTube. I can't remember exactly what I was looking for, but out of nowhere I run into a 'how-to' video for making a mini album. And that was it! I started searching for more related tutorials (I love watching and learning new techniques) and on the very next day I found myself surrounded by papers and scissors making my first mini album. It has been 3 years since then and although I took a year's brake (due to my pregnancy) now I am back.
I love scrapbooking because it combines such a vast deposit of media types with memories of my life and my family. Inspiration always derives from the photograph I use and the open choice of combination of mixed media techniques. I love to use gesso, mists and stamps and I love tearing papers! Through scraping I think I have found the best way to express myself and exploit my spare time in the best way.
Let's take a look at some of Athanasia's work.
I am so pleased to have these ladies on the team! They are wonderfully, talented ladies!
We really look forward to seeing all your work!
