So we've almost introduced everybody but not quite...we've got two more for ya! Today I want you to meet Tania Davey (this could be confusing having 2 Tanias!) And yeah, this is another one of our faithful Flickr participants who've made it to the finals in the monthly vote and she's now our newest Designer! I heart full-circle moments like this. They make me feel like all is right in the universe!
Tania's style makes me want to ditch my boring computer work and yank out the scrappy goodness that surrounds me. Her layouts totally stir up my mojo and I know you'll agree! She's one of the lucky ones who live in Australia (I'm moving to your house as soon as the snow flies here in Northern Canada...-50 just plain old SUCKS!!!) and her cool style is abundant in the following layouts.
Oh yeah, remember the sketch that everyone had to make something with?? Well, here it is again just to jog your memory and below it is Tania D's wicked-awesome layout. Lovin' it!
Q:Tell us a bit about you and your family.
A: Im a working mum with a very supportive husband, and between us we have 5 gorgeous kids rainging in age from 6 to 19 .. Never short of a subject to scrap about!
Q: How long have you been scrapbooking and where did you get your start in this craft?
A: I was introduced to scrapping at a Tupperware party, yes you read right a Tupperware party LOL . I was selling it, and at this one party I was doing a demo at the whole group were into scrapbooking, and they got out their albums and showed each other and I loved what I saw, but it wasn’t till a year later, when I got those first photos back of my new son, that I thought if I don’t start now, I’m never going to catch up.. we are now six years down the track and I’m still not caught up. But I love each and every page I have created. Even the first ones!
Q:What inspires your creativity when you are scrapbooking?
A: Lots of things inspire me, Photos, little comments my kids make, advertisements, the things around me. Browsing galleries and cropping with friends are terrific ways to be inspired!
Q: Describe your creative style
A: hrmm hard question, my creative style changes from layout to layout and I don’t think I have a particular style, but in saying that most of my layouts are fairly simple, and have clean lines. And I can tell you I’m not a big flowers and bling type of girl, I love them, but find it hard to use lots of them .. less is more!
Q:What are your three favorite products/techniques right now?
A: Favourite products right now would have to be the new release of Collections chipboard. Amazing stuff! Im also a bit keen on basic grey Lime Rickey .. Im also loving my stamps and inks.
Q:What project(s) are you currently working on?
A: IM currently working on a little wall hanging using an Orange jelly Stamp. I also have to do my thank you cards for my wedding! Which was 6 weeks ago!
Q:Describe your perfect day
A: Waking up late (I’m not a morning person) and the house is clean and there’s no washing or dishes to be done. And the kids are playing happily (not arguing) and I have a day to create without interruption. And to finish the day off, dinner is cooked for me, and the bed time routine is done for me, so I can keep creating!
Q:What are your three favorite layouts of all time that you’ve created (published or not)?
A: i love all my layouts, well they all have their place in my albums, so I can't choose favourites, but I’ll show you a couple of recent layouts
