I just love instagram! I can’t tell you how many scrapbookers I have “discovered” by scrolling through hashtags and tags! Gotta love technology 🙂 I “found” Anna Komenda via instagram and instantly fell in love with her style! Artistic, whimsical, and stunning!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started crafting: I always liked playing with paper and painting. I like to have my hands busy. I was jumping from one hobby to another until I found scrapbooking. It was in 2008, right after my first daughter was born. I was searching for some ways to create a handmade album with her cute pictures and that is how I found out that there is something out there called scrapbooking. I fast became a scrapbooking junkie. I live in Poland with my little family of two daughters, hubby, and beagle dog named Pirat. I am a geologist but I am not working as one right now. I devoted myself to raising my kids and scrapbooking 😀 I teach online and live classes and I am very happy with what I have and where I am in my life right now.
Favorite thing to create: Layouts and mini albums. There is nothing better than a project with cute pictures!
What do you love about this hobby? First of all – I am never bored. I always have something to make, paint, cut, glue. I don’t panic knowing that it’s going to be a rainy weekend and we will have to stay home 🙂 Second – I meet so many friends around the world! Thanks to the crops and classes I go out a lot and spend quality time with people who share my passion. Keeping my memories in beautiful album is a great quality for sure too.
5 fun facts about yourself:
1. I hate spiders. I scream when I see one.
2. I love roller coasters. Being upside down makes me so happy.
3. I am a sea person. There is nothing better than sand under your feet and endless water in front of you.
4. I hate marble pattern. I am a geologist but somehow it doesn’t speak to me.
5. I throw away my layouts. I make so many of them that I don’t have a room to store them. Crazy woman, right?
DREAM CATCHER by Anna Komenda
I was recently inspired by a dream catcher I saw on Pinterest so I decided to make one for myself with a scrappy twist. I played with watercolors to create background and added my favorite Crate Paper embellishments.
LIVE SIMPLY by Anna Komenda
Rainbow colors are my favorite. That’s why I like this page so much. I painted my background with watercolors and added embellishments in matching colors.
HAPPY GIRL by Anna Komenda
As a mom of two girls I became a pink color fan. I like using pink on my projects along with cute pictures of my girls.
AWESOME DREAM by Anna Komenda
Another project with watercolor background. I just love those paints and the messy, splattery effects you can achieve with them.
BEAUTY QUEEN by Anna Komenda
Using big titles can be a really fun way to create a unique composition on the layout. So big letters plus cute model plus beautiful collection equals great page!
Thank you so much to Anna for taking the time to answer all my questions and create a new and exclusive layout for her feature!!
