Are you scrapper / card skinny?
I am both scrapper and card maker. Although it is not so much. I love to make Christmas cards and cards for people, to celebrate or have a small greeting. But I am not a big producer, so it's good I have a handful of talented design girls, as a designer super nice things with my paper to help me.
How did you make your own paper?
I have always loved all the paper, I have loads of all sorts of paper that I have purchased over time. I've made cards for many years and was then bitten by digiscrap. There were many who asked me if I would make my digi papers to real paper - so it was the beginning.
What is the idea behind your paper?
The idea behind my paper is to make paper patterns and colors which compose a whole. The colors in my style, they look a little dusty and worn grunge.
I am inspired by vintage and Art Nouveau style, but also keeps the stylish and simple.
I am inspired by my life and what I see around me. On my trip to Paris was the architecture of all the beautiful buildings. I have too many years ago, trained me in decorative painting and ancient painting techniques such as graining and marbling, gold and Mistaken for'Oeil painting.
Back in my childhood, I have spent much time watching and rock in the old wallpaper books when my father was a master painter. Perhaps the interest started to sprout already then.
Is it your own favorite colors, shapes and patterns? I wonder if you think about what sells, or whether you use yourself and what you like.
I work in my heart, but we are probably all inspired by the trends and just pt. the pastels and natural tones as I swarm of.
Is the paper was taken well against the scrapers? And stores?
I think I have made a good start. Currently there is great interest from the European market. I get very positive feedback on my papers.
There are so many different papers and I can frame someone who loves what I do, so it makes me happy.
You press the Swan label paper, it is important to you?
And, it is important to me. We live in a changing world and we should all think about our choices of products and the impact it has on the world.
You've started shop, Tell us a little about the idea behind the.
I really like to have contact with customers and users of my paper, but it's very like wholesale. Shop gives me the chance of contact with users and with time it may become enlarged. Perhaps my own paper also to be here soon.
