Wilma Voermans – our Guest Designer + video tutorial

My name is Wilma Voermans and I live in the most beautiful area of the Swiss alps. Mother of 8 children, and now that the last two will leave the house soon, it is “Wilmatime”. That means time to do the things I like to do as much as I can.

I work in a local hotel which is very busy in summer when we are overloaded with tourists. In 2012 somebody showed me a minialbum and my scrapbooking addiction was born! So many people from all around the world who have the same addiction makes me feel happy. I liked paints and paper my whole live, but as a single mum raising 8 children there was never time and money. Now there is some time (the big money will never come, but phew, I don’t use it anymore).

In everything I see or feel a scrappage, canvas or art journal. Is it in advertisement, TV, nature…it is just all around us. Shapes, colors, textures! I like to make “arty” projects, but I sometimes love a sweet page full of flowers if it fits the picture. Just do what I like at the moment and am not afraid anymore what “the world” will think of it. Fear is a enemy when you create something nice. Just go with the flow.

For this layout I wanted a colorful India feeling. Modern and free .

On the chipboard I used Dylusions paint, and also in the background.
The 7dots chipboard was covered with some white and black spray.
