Melenia – friends
My name is Melenia Agapides! I live in an island of Greece and am mother of 2 kids, as well as an Airport Authority Officer at our local airport. I started scrapbooking in 2009, but I got more involved in 2011. I’m a layout designer and I love working with masks, inks, pastes, mists. I think my style is still evolving, so I can’t put a name on it, but my pages contain clusters with different kind of embellies, which I “glue together” with paints, mists and inks. I recently won the Supreme Scrap Tournament (layouts section). My works have been featured in several challenge blogs and have been published in magazines.
I’m very honoured to be a member of this unique DT and I thank Tusia for trusting me with the stunning 7 Dots Collections!
It’s always so beautiful, although rare, to have people in your work who are your friends, also. The time you spend at work becomes easier and more pleasant. With this layout I want to celebrate my friendship with one of my colleagues, Joanna… Lots and lots and lots of layering and mixed media here, as well as a bold and busy background (from the “9th Wave collection, what else?). Stamps are an important part of it, adding the touch of black for contrast. As you see, having a background paper like the 9th Wave-Stormy Sea is enough for not using any other paper in a layout. That’s why I love this collection. It is half of the work itself!
