As we have said before, we are always scouting talented artists to have as guest designers We feel truly blessed to have found today's guest Svetlana Austin has wowed us with her ability to take any collection that we have and combine them on one amazing project. We think you will be amazed as well, her work is absolutely stunning and works well with the vintage/modern Authentique style.
My name is Svetlana Austin. I am a Russian girl who ended up living in hot South Africa for the past 11 years. I met my husband while he was doing mission work in Russia. We have 2 beautiful sons who keep us busy and fill our lives with sunshine (not that we have lack of it in the northern part of our country). I was always creative. I tried many different crafts but once I was introduced to scrapbooking by my friend, I never stopped. It was 9 years ago. I defiantly love to create layouts about my little boys the most. My aim is to reflect their personalities through my work. I love to make real boy’s layouts full of colors and details. I like to use paint and sprays in my projects, as well as hand-stitching. Sometimes I like to make very romantic and feminine layouts about myself or about my girl-friends. It allows me to express the stuff that I personally like. My scrapbooking style is always determined by photographs I use and what kind of story I would like to tell through my project. I had a pleasure to design for various Russian and international challenge blogs, as well as for some manufacturers. I am very thankful and honored to be a Guest Designer at Authentique this month!
