This is the second last week of our Style Lounge challenge and this week we’re looking at the beautifully layered, detailed style of Suzanne Tonga. Her work is elegant, classic, timeless. We would love to see your interpretations of Sue’s exquisite style. Please send in your layouts to firstname.lastname@example.org by next Wednesday 22nd June for a chance to win a prize pack of scrappy goodies! We’re thrilled to announce that the very lovely Christine Middlecamp will be choosing her favourite to win the prize pack!
Sue’s style can probably be identified as layered and detailed. She loves patterned papers and will easily use five or six different designs on her pages. Sue creates pages that when you first look at them, they can appear deceptively simple.
It is the delightful little details like stitching, sequins and beads, which you discover upon a closer look, that finish off her designs. Smaller, multiple photos are often featured and some pages are journaled and some aren’t. Sue enjoys the creative process of scrapbooking and is at peace with the fact that not all pages tell a story. However some pages feature hidden journaling that she is teaching her children to look for!
Sue often uses stamps and quotes to convey the feelings that her photos evoke.
There are many artists whose work Sue admires, but she has always been attracted to the beautiful, layered and detailed style of Christine Middlecamp. Christine’s work is easily identified by the clever arrangement of patterns and embellishments used to create unique pages full of eye-catching detail. Sue is often in awe of the many, many layers of prettiness that Christine achieves. You can see just a few of her stunning pages below.
Can you give this amazing, layered look a try? Send an image of your layout to email@example.com by next Wednesday 29th June.
