Hi I'm Vanessa ~ AKA ~ blushbutter
I am married to my Darling Chad (A Poet) and have four great boys - Connal (15), Caleb (12), Logan(4) and Rohan (2)
I've been digital scrapbooking for a little while now and thoroughly enjoy it. I started designing my own kits because at the time there weren't a lot of choices available in cliparts that interested me enough to buy. Now everywhere I look there are beautiful kits and wonderful elements to make designing memory pages just a joy!
My all time favorite artists/designers would be William Bougueraeu , Jaguarwoman, Elizabeth Kyle, Selina Fenech, Nene Thomas, Harrison Fisher, Boldini, Alphonse Mucha, Rosetti, Leighton, Waterhouse, Emile Vernon, and several more of the great master painters, whom inspire me to express my creativity fully.
I've made many friends in the scrapbooking community, and have learnt many things from these friends who encourage me to pursue my ideas and make them a reality. I have conversations from around the world with like minded women and feel no cultural gaps, my friends and I have common goals, to preserve our memories into a printed and passed down biographical treasure to our families.
At the moment I am making pages from my vast collection of Vintage images, Ephemera, hand drawn artworks, digital creations and scanned unique elements (laces etc). I really love mixing up the Medias of the modern elements and the vintage ones, some examples of those are in my galleries. I love to especially place beautiful painted artworks into my scrapbooking pages because it feels as if I am passing on a legacy of beautiful art to my children and that they will see and feel how much I have admired these artists who touched my life long after I have gone. I can only pray that they will see these paintings as I do with admiration and wonder that make my eyes and soul sing with joy.
There is nothing I have in this life that God has not given to me... which includes my being a Mum, Wife, creating, craft work, friendships, love and all I hold dear.
My friends and I like to hang out in is my yahoo group
