We also have a guest designer who is playing along with BAP this month. Introducing:
Rommel Okuma from Brazil!
Hey there! My name is Rommel Okuma, a 34 y.o. guy and I live in São Paulo, Brazil with my boyfriend and two kittens: Wasabi and Temaki. Although I have a degree in Business Administration, I have an artistic soul. Ever since I was a child I have loved playing with colored pencils, watercolors, oil pastels, origami papers and other artistic materials. When I found out about Scrapbooking, over 5 years ago, I immediately became addicted.
For me, Scrapbooking means more than just keeping my memories close and registering good moments. This artistic expression gives me many possibilities to express myself and my story. Fun moments, music, books, movies, my daily life… in all of these situations I can found inspiration for my artistic works.
My style? I think I have an eclectic/artistic style. It depends the mood of the day and the inspiration I can catch from the photo or subject I wanna develop. I just have fun playing with papers, inks and artistic mediuns, creating layers, adding distress edges .. I love it all!
My favorite Prima product: Prima Flowers, for sure! I will be lying if I choose anything else, and if I could be more exactly I would say: Vines! I am always trying to use them in several creative ways, because they are just amazing and gorgeous.
How sweet is that?
Olga flipped the sketch on it's side to create this fabulous project using School Memories papers! See how versatile the line is? Tip: Stamping on the seam really adds a fun, artsy touch to the layout.

As we travel and take lots of photos do we ever get them scrapped? Try this idea: choose one or two of your favorites from a trip and do a layout for your home from them! Use our BAP as the base, like Lene did on this amazing layout about her trip to Thailand! Everytime you walk by the project in your home the wonderful ememories will come flooding back!
