Nyhet! Internationell gästdesigner – Irene Tan

Nu kommer det en kul nyhet! En eller två gånger i månaden kommer vi att få in en gästdesigner som inte huserar i Sverige till Scrapptorget. Det kommer att bli en blandad kompott av både kända och kanske mindre kända scrappare och kreatörer från hela vårt runda jordklot!

….och vi börjar med en riktig SUPERSTAR! Irene Tan från Malaysia! Här får ni hennes egen presentation:

My name is Irene Tan or more known as “Scrapperlicious”. I’m a mother of two and I have the most wonderful family that always supports me in pursuing my passion. Scrapbooking to me is really about family and life. There’s nothing more fun and inspiring than to scrap photographs captured everyday of our loved ones and the moments. My scrapping motto has always been ”Scrap with your heart and don’t forget to have fun too!”
I officially started scrapbooking in March 2007 and a couple of months later, in June; I discovered an absolute love of stamping and inking. I don’t really know how to describe my style of scrapping. However, others had told me that my style is ephemera/distressed. I currently design for a few companies such as Bo Bunny, Clear Scraps, Petaloo, Shimmerz Paints and more. I’m so honored to be invited as a guest designer here.

I’m really so honored and excited to be invited as a guest designer here! When I am asked to write about something for you all, I don’t have any idea at all as to what I’m going to write.  After giving it some thoughts, I guess I’ll just write a little about my scrapbooking style, my favorite colors and share a few pictures of my work with you all. That would describe me and my work in shortest way.

I will pick some of my favorite projects to share with all. First up is a layout titled “Warmth In your Heart”.

I think right now, it might be snowing in some areas and this layout will be the perfect to keep a little warmth in everyone. One effect that I always look for in my projects is the” glowing” effect.  Can you spot the glowing effect in this layout? This layout is created using the gorgeous Snowfall line by Bo Bunny.

The second project will be this “Through the Lens” Mini Album.

This is one of my favorite projects of all time. I love the acrylic camera album by Clear Scraps. I’ve created the grungy and artsy look on this mini album. Tons of distress inks, stamping and alcohol inks went into creating this mini album. Most of my mini albums consist of one or several metal embellishment to accentuate the grungy look that I wanted.

 This third project is an altered frame.
Even though I love to work with dark distress colors most of the time, this does not meant that I do not like the sweet and soft colors too. I really love how this altered frame turns out with tons of Shimmerz Paints products and Petaloo flowers.
 The fourth project is a layout titled “Serious”.
Since I love inking so much, these resist pattern paper line by Pink Paislee is just perfect for me! I’ve also used some chipboard pieces by Dusty Attic and stamps by Vilda Stamps on this layout.
The next project is a project which I’ve taught in a workshop. The “Journey” altered treasure box.

This box is originally white. I’ve had so much fun distressing it and adding some vintage feel to it. This is one treasure box which I will cherish forever. It has my style all over it.

 Next up is another layout titled “Believe”.

I’m totally in love with adding some acrylic or using acrylic as the base for my layouts. In this layout, I’ve added a large acrylic circle as the base and a large acrylic expression as the title. I’ve taught this layout in a number of workshops.

Lastly, I would like to share a project which is very dear to me and kind of personal to you all. My “Sweden” mini album.I’ve had a chance to visit Sweden back in 2008 and loved it! I’ve used a Clear Scraps acrylic word album to scrap the pictures which I’ve captured while there.

To end this article, I would like to share a newly launched e-book by me.

This is my first ever solo e-book and that’s not all. For a limited time, if you purchase this e-book now, you will also get two bonus e-books which are also by me! Isn’t that great? You will learn how I get my inspirations, my thoughts, my techniques, my tools and even how I’ve became who I am today. Thank you so much in advance for all the support!
