Meet Our May Guest Designer Leonie....

Hi, i’m Leonie Neal-Dawson and I live in Geelong, Australia. Along with my Husband, Greg and our 4 children, Will (10), Andrew (8), Hamish (8), and Maggie (6).

Weekdays I’m a SAHM and weekends I work night shift at the local hospital.

I started Scrapbooking when I was pregnant with the twins in 2003 . And truly I love everything about this craft, preserving our family’s memories, the creative outlet for me, meeting fabulous like minded people and in the past year or so I’ve discovered the online world of scrapping , blog challenges, forums etc. I think just about every day will find me doing something scrap related, if it’s not actually scrapping then it’s being online, taking or editing photo’s or all of the above. J

I’m not sure that I have any particular style, I like to try different techniques and generally I like to use mist, paint and masks on my Layouts. Well at the moment anyway! I tend to often also add some doodling or inking/distressing to the edges of photo’s or paper on my layouts.

Anyway here is my sample using the gorgeous picture as inspiration. I was inspired by the pink, yellow and black in the picture and I also tried to mimick the shape of the girls head piece with the masked hearts. And the flowers I made using this online tutorial
