Today it is my pleasure to introduce the lovely Sonia to you all. Sonia and I first met at a Brisbane Expo when we were both teaching, We would catch up with each other every time we attended the Brisbane show. I have a vague recollection that we may have even been on the same design team (Addicted to Craft) together years and years ago before that. I have admired Sonia's work for a long time now. At the shows we all have to do a teachers display and hers was always full of beautiful vintage and shabby projects - off the page, layouts and more. I would stand and look at all the detail she included on every page/project. I often though that, when "I grow up" - I want to scrap like Sonia. I was so delighted when she decided to join our team a few years ago. So now I get to admire Sonia's work every time she shares it with us here at Imaginarium Designs.
I have am married to my very patient husband Kym and we have two gorgeous daughters Alex, 14 and Isabella, 12 who you will generally see as the focus of my projects (mainly because they are a lot more photogenic then me!!)
Like many of you my scrapbooking is my ‘me’ time. My two daughters keep me very busy with all of their activities so it’s scrapbooking that allows me to sit down, take a deep breath and relax for a while.
My style is quite mixed but tends towards the vintage / shabby style. I like to have a go at whatever the current trend may be and then mix it in with my style. It’s always fun to have a go at something different and move out of your comfort zone!!
I have designed for a few different manufacturers over the years and was a 2016 Scrapbooking Memories Master. I look forward to sharing my projects with you featuring the gorgeous Imaginarium Designs products over the coming year.
Sonia's Vintage style is shown here to great effect. She has done some fussy cutting and layering on her page, two gorgeous photos of her daughters and a chipboard title finish this beautiful layout.
Sonia mentioned in her post featuring this layout that the doesn't like working on kraft as a background colour. She really loved the challenge and was very happy with the finish layout. It does look amazing and she has done a very special background, adding lots of mixed media elements. I love the way she has created two parts to her layout and made sure that they work together. I admire anyone who can do this.
