Graphic 45 Designer -Romy Veul

RomyVeulProfile Pic-250W- 04152015

My name is Romy and I am a 21-year old paper crafter from the Netherlands. I study Linguistics at University by day, but love to spend time in my craft room at night. I started scrapbooking more than 9 years ago and was hooked to this wonderful creative outlet immediately.

I think scrapbooking is a perfect combination of my passion for photography and journaling and my need to be creative. I consider myself both a scrapbooker and a card maker, as I make both projects a lot.

I also like to try new things, such as altered items or mini albums, every once in a while. You could best describe my style as layered, detailed and romantic. I usually work with lots of layers on all of my projects and am most of all a paper girl, who loves working with different kinds of papers.

Let’s hear from Romy:

Vintage Look Scrapbook Page

Hi and welcome to the Paper Crafter’s Library blog today!

Today I would like to show you a lay-out that I made as a proud DT member for Graphic 45. I used their gorgeous new ‘Artisan Style’ collection, which is just the perfect mix of vintage and colourful. I used it to make a vintage-inspired lay-out about my brother and mother.

It happens only rarely that my brother allows me to take a photo of him, so this photo is very precious to me. I decided to frame it with the house that is printed on one of the Artisan Style papers. I fussy cut it from the papers and attached my photo in the center of it. After that, I cut out several strips of paper to create a base with multiple layers of paper behind my photo. I also tore the edges of some of the papers to make them suit the vintage look of my lay-out.



I hope you liked my blogpost.
Thank you so much for stopping by!

  5. My second attempt to comment, not sure what went wrong..
    Nothing has gone wrong with your layout, Romy. All those layers you are so well known for & so clever with. All the detail yet still having focus on the photo. You are lucky to have captured your brother on camera. My poor mother has very few pics of me or my brothers since we were young. I know now I am older how precious & important they would be. Tfs today & Ty to to PCL for this opportunity. C
