Meet Katie ....

Meet Katie Howard .... Katie won a Facebook comp a little while ago and is one of our lucky Guest Designers for this month!

Hi, my name is Katie Howard and I am lucky enough to be a Guest Designer here at Imaginarium Designs during November. First let me tell you a little about myself. I am a (mostly) stay at home mum living in sunny Brisbane. I have three beautiful children Niamh (15), Erin (13) and Liam (10) and a very supportive and understanding husband! I have been scrapping for around 10 years, but have always had a thing for pens, paper and stationery in general! I am currently creating for the White With 1 challenge blog and also for D’lish Scraps. I have a style that is probably considered clean with clusters and splatters! 
You can have a look at more of my work at my blog:

Now, I have to say that when my not so little parcel of goodies from the lovely Natalie arrived I was beyond excited and I couldn’t wait to play! There were so many gorgeous bits and pieces to choose from!   

The first project I have for you is a page titled “Beautiful” and shows how beautiful my 15 year old looks with straight teeth and no braces (not that she wasn’t gorgeous before of course!!)
I chose to use a large flourish that I covered in a white glitter embossing powder (vanilla sparkle) I also covered the heart with the same embossing powder. I placed the flourish and heart together so they almost look like the one piece and together frame or underline the photos.

I also used one of the frames that I painted up in black gesso, I love using black to make bold statements on my pages. I cut the frame in half and used it on either side of my photos. This is a great way to get more out of your smaller frames.

Last of all I chose the word beautiful to be my title. I also painted this in black gesso
so it would stand out on the bright yellow background.
Thanks for joining me on my first post!
