A Fond Adieu to Adriana

So another Goodbye today.
This time it is Adriana's Swan Song.

Adriana is guest design team member who is a personal friend. She lives in Adelaide so we catch up from time to time. She is such a lovely, warm and kind spirited person and her scrapbooking reflects this. Not only is she a designer but also teaches sharing her passion and skills with others.

This is my favourite Adriana layout and is such a great example of her style. Just look at all the fussy cutting involved in creating this page. The photo doesn't really show all the work involved, I wish you could see it rather than looking at a photo.  It is just beautiful and must have taken hours to do.
She has layered everything up around her lovely photo and the finished layout is just stunning.

Again Adriana is an all round scrapbooker, she makes really beautiful cards and also uses mixed media products on her work. The card above looks like she has used embossing powder to give the chipboard an aged look or rusty look and it works so well. 
I  love miniature items in any form, and in scrapbooking there are lots of lovely examples of miniature projects around. When I came across Adriana's  mini layouts on playing cards, I fell in love with them and I am going to have to do some of my own. They are just perfect. 
There is something captivating about doing a whole page on a tiny card. Even although they are small, they still take quite a bit of time and are fiddly to make. Whilst you can use smaller items for your miniature project, you still have to make everything fit. and there is an art to it. Adrianna's cards are a outstanding example of just how charming miniature scrapbooking can be.
So now we have to say goodbye to our friend.
We wish Adrianna success in everything thing she does and all the best in 2018.
I hope we can still catch up from time to time.
Please feel free to give Adrianna your best wishes for the future.
thanks for looking
