Hi everyone! I’m excited to introduce the sweet, cheery, and delightful Violeta Scrap! I’ve met Violeta in person in Madrid for a workshop earlier this year, and even though we speak different languages, she was so nice and welcoming that I felt like we were instant best friends. 🙂
Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started crafting: My name is Violeta, I am 25 years old and I’m from Madrid (Spain). My passion is scrapbooking and I’ve been doing it for six years now. I work in SCRAP professionally and I worked for three years at a specialized shop where I taught scrapbooking workshops. I have also taught workshops in different areas of Spanish geography.
Favorite thing to create: I love all the projects of scrapbooking. But most of all I like to do layouts – the classic format of scrapbooking that I love.
What do you love about scrapbooking? The inspiration and documenting photographs in my day-to-day life. I’m always thinking about my next scrapbooking projects. I love scrapbooking!
5 fun facts about yourself:
1. Sometimes I wear glasses to see, although I have perfect vision.
2. I love to photograph myself jumping.
3. I love to swim and spend summers at the pool or beach.
4. I like to eat sweets on any occasion.
5. I’m addicted to my iphone and social networks – especially YouTube and instagram!
Here is the layout Violeta made so lovingly for her spotlight:
HAPPY by Violeta Scrap
On this layout I used a lot of photos to tell my story and made the title the main focus along with a few embellishments.
Here are a few more amazing creations that Violeta chose to share with us:
CURRENTLY by Violeta Scrap
In this project I used paint colors to decorate the paper background. I also believe that the colors of the paintings look great with photography.
HELLO VERANO by Violeta Scrap
I like to use white paper for my projects as on this layout, along with blues and golds.
MINI ALBUM by Violeta Scrap
For this mini album I made a simple structure with rings and used tiny photos. Also I decorated each sheet with different embellishments of scrapbooking.
CAMPO by Violeta Scrap
On this layout I used watercolors to decorate the paper background. Then I added several small photographs and decorated with various ornaments.
I hope you’re inspired to try some of these techniques and check out Violeta’s blog and YouTube and other sites (they’re all listed up at the top 🙂 Until next time, cheers!
