>Since how long do you scrap ?

I scrap since February 2008. Before, I practiced creative leisures similar to the scrapbooking without knowing the term nor the techniques.

>What do you prefer to do out of Scrap?

I do not have preferably. What I like is to start from nothing and to discover a realization at the end, sometimes without really knowing how I was able to produce that… laughs…

It is to discover new matters, textures to be assembled, colors, techniques or of the products tendency.

>What are your preferred colors?

I like all the colors, even if I work much it pink and the chestnut. It is true that the various orders which I receive make it possible to work of other color ranges.

>What brings scrap to you?

The scrapbooking a need. A need for scrapping to feel me myself, to feel me fully alive. I forget that I am handicapped. I fight so that, which I cannot do with my legs, I compensate for it and does it with my hands.

It is a real passion and I need to share it and imagine that others will be perhaps also filled with wonder to discover all the possibilities and the richnesses which the scrapbooking offers.

It is a manner of giving live to my sensitivity of another manner that by the writing, the song, or the dance. And thereafter, I would wish to make my full trade of it.

Page layout

Work contours of “P” (1)

For contours, you have whole freedom. In this creation, I included the basic color like bottom, I added small tags, then I stamped the word "scrap". You can write a first name for an example. Then same manner that for stage 11, you will stick it on your basic support.

Work contours of “P” (2)

To make the roundness of “P”, I chose to take a paper strip like bottom, then a ribbon of 1 cm of width and I bent some buttons to make it hold. Then I stuck the whole.

Here is, your monogram is finished if you wish to work only one side.

Example of creation for the back of “P”

The techniques used are exactly the same ones for the back of the letter.
