It's time to reveal the final star in our competition!!
My star is a wonderful scrapper from Penang, Malaysia.
Please give a big welcome to Irene Tan
I am Irene Tan, from Malaysia and a mother of two blessings. I love the beauty of combining art and creativity with the magnificent world of scrapping and crafting. I love to experiment with all the wonderful crafting and scrapping products in the market and come up with new ideas in using them.
My inspirations of my work comes from everywhere. From the photographs to my surroundings and from the stories to the emotional attachment I have towards a specific project. My projects had always been a story teller. It's meant to tell the stories of each subject or topic of the projects. It's also my thoughts and view of that particular project.
My style is more into distressed/ephemera with loads of details. However, I am also able to work with other styles comfortably with a twist of my own. I love challenges and innovative assignments. I'm looking forward to come up with a book for all my techniques if a great publisher comes along.
Here are a few recent layouts from Irene which showcase her style:
Your challenge is not to scraplift Irene’s work, but to create a layout in her style. You will need to do your homework and check out her work on her blog. Try and pick out the products/techniques that you love and go from there.
Unfortunately I have been unable to do a layout for this as my stuff is all packed up to make room for our student and ready for our move. So here is Heidi B's take on Irene's style:
You have until midnight, Tuesday 7 September to upload your layout. All submissions will be revealed together on Wednesday 1 September. You must be a member of our gallery in order to view and submit layouts for this competition.
The layouts will then be judged by Irene. Points will be awarded for first (4 pts), second (3 pts) and third (2 pts), and all other entries will receive 1 pt. At the conclusion of the competition, the one with the most points will bag the STAR prize, with second and third receiving a consolation prize.
We have a HUGE prize package of goodies supplied by designers and manufacturers. First prize will receive a Cricut Create machine!!!
