Hello everyone. Can you believe we are in June already, where has the year gone? This month we have another great Guest Designer, Keren Tamir, all the way from Canada. If you haven't seen Kerens work, let me tell you you are in for a treat. Keep an eye out throughout June to see more of Kerens fabulous work.
My name is Keren Tamir and I'm 37 years old. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my scrapbooking hobby and a mother of two amazing kids; a 10 year old boy and a 5 years old girl. I've been scrapbooking for 8 years and I mainly scrapbook about my family. I love to create and experiment with many different mediums and techniques.
I believe my style is shabby chic vintage with a hint of whimsy. I love designing with flowers, butterflies, doilies and lace. I scrapbook mainly layouts however I do love making mini-albums and cards. Every once in a while I like getting a little grungy and distressing my pages with many paints, mists and inks. My style is always evolving and that’s one of the things I love about this hobby.
One of the main reasons why I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children and grandchildren. However in this past year, I’ve started to enjoy another aspect of scrapbooking. I love the artistic outlet that it gives me. It has become an obsession, a healthy addiction which helps me relax in life. I love it so much and I hope to scrapbook for many years to come!!
I’m so happy to be this month Guest Designer at Green Tara!!
Here is my layout using many pink and white Green Tara flowers, lace and ribbon. I like having lots of layers on my layouts.
One way of achieving depth in a layout is to use flowers of different textures and heights. I used many different Green Tara flowers. I used pop-dots to raise some of the flowers to achieve difference in height.
I even cut one of the flowers in half and placed it under the picture to add another layer.
Finally placing leaves around the flowers ties the whole picture together."
Thanks for looking.
