Greetings to all our friends!
Today we will continue introduсing our team to you. Now it is Svetlana's turn.
Hello everyone! My name is Svetlana Austin. I am a Russian girl who ended up living in hot South Africa for the last 10 years. I met my husband while he was doing mission work in Russia. We have 2 beautiful sons who keep us busy and fill our lives with sun-shine (not that we have lack of it in the northern part of the country).
I was always creative. I tried many different crafts but once I was introduced to scrapbooking by my friend I never stopped. It was almost 8 years ago.
I love to create lay-outs about my little boys. My aim is to reflect their personalities through my work. I love to make real boy’s lay-outs full of colors and details. I like to use paint and sprays in my projects.
I also like to make very romantic and feminine lay-outs about myself or about my girl-friends. It allows me to express the stuff that I like.
My scrapbooking style is always determined by photographs I use and what kind of story I would like to tell through my project.
I also like to do alter scrap. Sometimes it is objects that are specially designed for it, sometimes I just see something in a shop and feel that it needs some TLC (for example this jewelry hanger I bought in Clicks)
I designed for a few challenge blogs – Russian and international. At the moment I am part of Kaisercraft design team.
