Yay! It's time for another Designer Spotlight! And look who we have this week ... it's Greta Hammond (glhammond)!
Q: How long have you been scrapbooking?
A: I started scrapbooking about 8 years ago after my son was born.
Q: Where do you find inspiration?
A: I typically find inspiration in my photos and the story I want to tell. However, I'm not against being pulled in a direction after spying a great new product! Also, I am often renewed by a new product line or a great new color palette seen online, in a store or in a magazine. Inspiration can certainly hit at any time!
Q: If someone was to walk into your scrap room/area right now, what would they find?
A: Oh my ... they would find a BIG mess. As much as I long to be organized, I am a very messy scrapper and tend to pull lots of product out while making a page. Unfortunately, I am not as keen on putting away all that product when I am done!
Q: What do you listen to or watch while scrapbooking?
A: I catch up on t.v. shows while scrapbooking. I normally don't have the patience to just sit and watch t.v. but having it on while scrapbooking works out perfectly.
LAYOUT TIPS: I traced a page from the Half Bracket Mixed Media Book onto orange pattern pper and cut it out to make the background for the three photos.
Q: What time of day do you usually scrapbook and where?
A: I don't really have a set time when I scrapbook but I often find the peace and quiet after my kids have gone to bed to be the perfect time for me to create. I have my own room so I can close the door steal away a few hours when the house is quiet.
Q: What type of camera do you use?
A: Canon 30D
Q: What are some other hobbies you enjoy?
We hope you've enjoyed this spotlight on Greta! And we hope you come back again tomorrow for some great ideas for using our Mixed Media Books!
A: I love to read. That quiet scrapbooking time after the kids have gone to bed often competes with the pull of a good book!
