Over the next week Spellbinders are introducing the Design team one person a day. All I can say is oh my goodness what a line up of amazing designers that I get to work with, be inspired by and get to know a whole lot better. They are amazing each and every one of them.
Yesterday, the first designer was announced - Teresa Horner. Not only is she the sweetest person you could meet, she is an amazingly talented artist that crosses all facets in our industry, she has such a beautiful style and I was fortunate to get to know her very well sharing a room last year at the retreat in Arizona in the US where we were spoilt with LOTS of fun, learning, product and tools, setting us up for an amazing year ahead. So head on over to her blog to see her beautiful creations. Also stay tuned on the Spellbinders blog for announcements daily featuring each designer for the year ahead.
Today I wanted to share with you a layout I created that really came to life with Spellbinders dies and my favourite Faber-Castell mediums. I never thought I would have used these dies on a boy layout, but just seemed perfect for the feel I was going for. It is funny now as the dies used on this layout are some of my all time favourites! I also created this layout while travelling in our caravan on summer holidays, and another reason why I LOVE my Spellbinders dies so so much, they give me embellishments when all I have on hand is paper to make them with!
I created a video which I haven't yet shared, so scroll down to see how the layout comes together!
