Special Guest Designer - Helen Tilbury - 'Memories Together' {Mixed Media Layout}

Hello there everyone!  Surprise!!  I am so happy to announce that I will be having fun here with you & all these lovely Inkido products as "Special Guest Designer" for the next 5 months - until the end of 2013. Thank you so much to Papercrafts Scandinavia for extending this wonderful invitation to me & sending me a whole heap of gorgeousness to enjoy!  Woop Woop!!

Hello :)  My name is Helen Tilbury & I live in Durban, South Africa, together with my hubs, 4 kids & 3 furry kitties.  I've been scrapbooking for the last 10 years & it's saved me a lot of money on therapy!  Okay so it's not the cheapest hobby but I do love it & believe that the dozens of albums I have filled will be treasured for many years to come.  I have a day job so all my creating & design team duties are done in the evenings & over the weekends - fortunately I have a hubby that loves to cook & is very supportive of my artistic lifestyle!

Currently I am also designing for Scrap 365 Magazine in the UK, My Creative Scrapbook - the most awesome kit club in the USA!  Scrapmatts Chipboard & Flourish with a Bling {both Australian companies} I also recently started my own challenge blog, which I administrate & design for - Scrap Around The World.  Yup - all that does keep me rather busy!!  But I love the challenge & the online community - it is amazingly supportive & I have formed some fantastic friendships since I started my blog & got involved online 4 years ago.

My style is shabby grunge with lots of mixed media thrown in!  I hope you enjoy my projects & posts & I would love it if you would visit my blog too - Scrap Addict - where I share loads of tips & tricks, tutorials & details of my work process.  I have a You Tube channel too & have just got into technique videos so please subscribe if you are interested in learning some mixed media techniques - you can find that HERE. You can also keep up with me on my Facebook page HERE .  Thank you so much for having me ♥

I created this layout with the glorious new collection - Beautiful Memories - using the Blue Labels B side for my base (with the start) & the floral paper Blue Memories - Sage Blossom.

I used the lovely Butterfly 'Swallowtail' Nature stamp & embellished with some beautiful Inkido flowers from the Harmony Olive set  as well as the Tiffany Jewels in Blue.

I used a couple different varieties of white lace which I recoloured with gelatos 
- you can find the lace HERE and HERE.

I had a fantastic time working with the Inkido products!  Can you tell?!?
The beautifully shabby papers with their pale tones work perfectly
 with the mediums which only serve to enhance their beauy.

I had a lot of fun layering up many textural elements together with the soft Inkido designs.
  I used Ulrika's lovely sketch as a starting point for my design. 
{which is also our August challenge}.
