Designer Day: Come Meet Janine Koczwara

Welcome back to Designer Days! Today we have a very special lady to introduce you to. Janine is a mega-talented, absolutely wonderful designer who has been on our team for a few years now. We cannot wait for you to get to know her better!

DSC_1891edbw [Desktop Resolution]


Hi. I am Janine Koczwara and I have been scrapbooking for almost 8 years now! It is hard to imagine what life was like before scrapbooking!  I have to confess it is a juggle at times with 5 kids, but it is just so refreshing to grab a couple of hours (ok, a bit more than a couple of hours, but I am not admitting to that!) of time to scrapbook a page.  My husband of 15 years, has always been supportive of my "habit!" Thank goodness he was the one that wanted me to get a hobby, he just didn't bargain on it becoming an obsession.

DSC_3794 copy (Copy)

This is the most recent photo I have of all the kids together!  It is quite a feat to get them to all look at the camera and smile! Obviously I failed at that in this picture!  My eldest is almost 13 (oh such a fun, insert challenging, age!) down to a 16 month old. They provide for a busy, fun and sometimes insane household, but I could never say it is dull.  I was one of 2 children and always wished I had another brother or sister, so I was determined to have more children than 2, but I honestly never saw myself having 5!!

I live in the delightful city of Adelaide, South Australia! It is one of the smaller cities in Australia, but I love it here.  Adelaide is known as the city of churches, and has the River Torrens running through the centre.

Adelaide

My home is situated in a gorgeous area of the Adelaide suburbs. There are so many parks and walking trails and trees everywhere!  It is really beautiful, and there was a time when I would get up at the crack of dawn and walk an hour along these paths, but sadly that is not always feasible anymore, and I miss those early morning walks. 

Image
 I have lived most of my life in South Australia, and have travelled to most regions within my own state. South Australia is known for it's wonderful wine regions, most notable of these are the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Penola areas. The image below is of a boutique winery in the Barossa. When visiting the region there are lots of pockets of green amidst the dryness of summer.

3148875030_13bcab78ef-16744ag

South Australia is such a contrasting state, but it is the driest state in the driest continent of the world! A weird fact I remember learning from my school days.  With 5 children our family holidays are camping oriented with a lot of 4wd adventure’s!  Here are some pics of the rugged beauty of South Australia.

Gawler Ranges

This is a part of the Gawler Ranges. The red in these rocks is stunning.  

Pt Lincoln

Pt Lincoln National Park
These pics are from our trip to Pt Lincoln National Park.  We have had some amazing camping holidays, and yes those dunes are fabulous for a bit of 4wd-ing!!  

My family is always featured on my pages, predominantly my daughter nowadays, as I love to create more feminine pages. This extends now to my boy pages as well, and I often include a floral cluster on their pages as well!  My motto being that the males of the species can appreciate the beauty of nature and flowers are part of nature’s beauty!!  My style is definitely layered and feminine.  I love to build a page, grabbing whatever I have around me and just seeing if it will work.  I often say I am an opportunistic scrapper and am actually shocking at really looking through my stash, preferring to grab whatever is closest at hand to make my LO's work.

This LO was created for  CHA and is a great example of my detailed layers, fussy cutting and feminine style. I was told by a fellow scrapper once that the difference between a good page and a great page is in the details, so I always like to pay attention to the small details. For example in this LO, the quote is cut from paper, but I have framed the scallop edge with brown to help lift it off the background and then around the actual quote I have followed the border inside the scallop and stuck down a lot of sequins, then sewn through them.  Each of these steps is a little fiddly, but can make a huge difference to the overall impact of the layout.

I also hand twisted beading (candy gems) for the page to add a bit of sparkle and texture.

The Color Connection!

You may have heard about the Color Connection and wondered what exactly it is. Well, we are here to explain a bit more about this amazing connection and give away a little surprise to one lucky winner!

 

 

 

 

Color Connection was an idea that Wendy, from Tattered Angels, and Sharon, from Prima, had while traveling and teaching together in Holland last fall. The connection includes Prima, Tattered Angels, Pink Paislee and House of Three. Our products work so well together that we decided to "connect" a few of our favorites for you!


MISTables banner-50x23low

At CHA Winter Prima introduced a new (MIST)·a·bles canvas line that is ready to be colored with Tattered Angels' Glimmer Mist. TA even created a Prima Favorites four pack consisting of one ounce bottles of Cranberry Zing, Patina, Bronze and Suede! (These four colors work so well with ALL of our paper lines.)

 

Mistable cari1
Cari Fennell used all four GM colors to make her MISTable simply AMAZING! Cari also added extra canvas flowers cut from another MISTable sheet to give her design loads of texture.

Mistables julie Mr&MrsVillegas-sm-1
Julie Balzer also created a GORGEOUS layout using our MISTables and TA's Glimmer Mist Favorites pack for Prima! Once the canvas sheet is colored the designs act like a resist to give you a very unique effect.

 

To celebrate this lovely union we are going to give away:

Mistables2

  • a Prima Canvas (MIST)·a·ble and
  • a four pack of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Prima's Favorite colors!

 For your chance to win just leave a comment here letting us know what your favorite Prima product is to color! We will pick a winner on FRIDAY, February 25th! Open to all countries. Void where prohibited.

As a company that makes artificial flowers, we are inspired daily by nature’s incredible beauty.  And we understand how exciting it is to discover and share each new wonder that we behold.    However, we also know that “sharing” comes with it a responsibility to respect that creative work and those of others who look to her for inspiration.  We never condone, nor knowingly endorse, infringement upon other's rights and believe in setting only the highest standards of business ethics in all our endeavors. ~ Prima Marketing
