Canvas Corp Brands August 2016 Challenge

Virág says: “This is my first mixed media notebook ever. I followed the colors of the monthly mood board. My style is grungy so I wanted to stick to my style. I have never had my own beautiful notebook, so I decided to use this in the office for taking memos.”

“The inner pages of the notebook are made with turquoise edges with white polka dots. I glued some strips from them onto the cover to connect it to the pages. During the creative process I used mist in different colors. That was the color base of the composition. Than I added some more paper from the 7gypsies Harmony collection and I started to embellish the cover.”

“I found metallic elements and chipboards on my table. I really like using pages from an old book and gauze. My sister made some flowers for me and I put them on the left side of the cover.”

Virág also made us a video to take us trough her creative process:

I live with my partner and my two children, in a small village the North of Sweden. I work as a Intensive Care Nurse (with Cardiology as speciality). My "style" is colourful and playful. I often use a lot of papers and embellishments. I try to have the photo in focus, and to reflect the feeling of the photo in the layout. I also makes cards and altered projects. If I would call my style something - well maybe Playful Punk Chic? (if i do a romantic layout, I can´t help giving it a playful twist...)
