It seems like a long time. Actually it is. I started designing Scrapbook Pages about 6 months after Emma was born in 2003. I needed something creative to fill the void left by not dancing. At that time For Keeps Magazine was the premier mag in Australia and they held annual competitions for scrapbookers nation wide. It was suggested I send an entry in. I mean what did I have to loose? Well I receive the Award for Design and Composition, and since then, the last 9 years have been spent creating and working for various manufacturers and scrapbooking publications. There hasn't been a time I could remember where I didn't have a due date looming or something to create.
My term with Prima Marketing comes to an end in June ( I can't even imagine my life not designing for Prima), and I promised myself to have time off and start experimenting creating stuff I want to do. No Design Teams. None. So when I was approached by Ingvild, I had such a mixed reaction to her offer. I have always respected and adored her work (I mean who doesn't), and my immediate gut reaction was to jump at this chance. Then I remembered my promise to myself. No DT's. Creating for myself. Total autonomy.
But then I spent a week thinking about it. And thinking about it. Pretty much everything I do has Ingvild's resins or Shabby Chic Treasures on it anyhow. They are products I adore, and so very very me. And then there was the thought of her future releases. Sigh. It just had to be a "Yes" didn't it !! So here I am announcing that I am thrilled to be on the Ingvild Bolme DT for 2013. And I cant wait to start designing.
So here is the team. They are truly amazing. Go over and have a look at their art. Beautiful.
