My name is Keren Tamir and I'm 38 years old. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my scrapbooking and a mother of two amazing kids; a 11 year old boy and a 6 years old girl. I've been scrapbooking for 10 years and I mainly scrapbook about my family. I love to create and experiment with many different mediums and techniques.
My style is mainly Shabby chic. I use lots of flowers and vines in my projects. I also love using pastes and misting on my layouts. My style is always evolving and that’s one of the things I love about this art.
One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. However over the couple of years, I’ve started to enjoy another aspect of scrapbooking. I love the artistic outlet that it gives me. I love to create and I’m passionate about what I do.
I was delighted to be asked to be a Guest Designer here at Petaloo this month.
Hope you enjoy my creations!!
Here is a layout I created about my daughter who always loves to dress up for a party.
I masked a cherry blossom pattern over the wooden patterened paper using some gesso. I really wanted to enhance the girly aspect of this layout. I added small Soft Pink Petaloo Forget me nots on the stems.
To mimic the wooden slats, I curled a couple of edges to make it seem as if the wood was peeling off.
Finally I added lots of layers and flowers around the picture to enhance the colors.
Petaloo Flowers used:
Gesso, cheese cloth, Crafters workshop template, black marker
Simple Stories papers and stickers
