How about a little inspiration creative juices flowing? First up we have our Guest Designer for August! We are very excited to introduce HIM to you!
"My name is Mariusz Gierszewski and I come from Poland. I'm 23 years old and I'm studying management of public administration and non-governmental organizations. I live in a small village, Modrzejewo. My passions are politics, scrapbooking, and card making.
First work I ever made was in August, 2012. (I will soon be celebrating my second scrapbooking birthday!) My favorite styles are vintage and shabby. Today I created a card full of layers, flowers, and other embellishments in my beloved style. The three pastels perfectly complement each. As always I was inspired by nature."
Won't you agree that Mariusz makes the most beautiful cards? This palette is a wonderful fit for his choice of Prima products, delicate touches, and lots of luscious layers. Mariusz will be joining us again tomorrow with our BAP challenge so make sure you come back to see his wonderful creation.
Louise can rock bold and dramatic palettes, as well as this sweet pastel mix! Her layout has wonderful command of white space, with playful splashes of summery shades added in! A flurry of crystals add a perfect hint of shimmer on the top.
Erin has also created a gorgeous card with our palette this month! "This dreamy, shabby-chic pastel color palette was right up my alley! I combined the Coffee Break & Epiphany collections, as well as some gorgeous new flowers & trims to bring my card to life." ~Erin
