The February/March issue of Histoires de Pages one year ago was their 50st issue. Time to celebrate of course!
One of the article in this special issue was a "scrapbooking tour around Europe" and scrappers from 12 different countries were asked to create a layout and tell a bit about the trends and style in their country.
I had the honor to represent The Netherlands. And I was even more honored that after this issue I was asked to join the magazine design team, together with Lory Bucaria from Italy and Ula Kopciewska from Poland.
The 3 of us were the first international desingers ever to join the team. I have to admit, it was a bit scary. I had no idea if the French audience would like my work, but I'm still on the team so I guess I'm doing ok :) :)
That was a year ago, and since we have to wait until a year after publication before we can show our work online I can now finally start to share. So here is the first layout I made for Histoires de Pages.
To create the background paper I added left over letter stickers to cardstock and applied gesso and some acrylic paint on top.
The butterfly was colored with alcohol inks and the wood veneer hearts were sprayed with Glimmer Mist.
The sun was created from strips of felt, rolled and glued to a chipboard circle.
Thank you for stopping by today!
