April Guest Designer - Vanessa Colant

My name is Vanessa Colant, but I’m well known on the web under the nickname of Nessa. I’m a 28 years old stay at home mum - it’s a choice and I love taking care of my family. Together with my man we have two beautiful children, both boys named Matteo and Mirko. They are really important in my life and in my daily inspiration. Photography and scrapbooking are both important for me!! Most important is capturing moments of the daily life, capturing my children growing up and capturing my life. Self portrait is the main topic of my layouts. My aim is to scrapbook my life as if I wrote a diary….I think memories of the past are so so important for the future.I have been scrapbooking since 2004. I began with my first pregnancy and scrapped mainly for myself (no blog, no boards). But as time went by, I wanted to share my creations with other people. Everything went so quickly, I have been invited to join some design teams as well as having been published in some French magazines. Now I can say that Scrap booking is a way for me to express my feelings, my moods and my opinions. I have to admit that I don’t have a specific style. I love using/trying different techniques in my layouts. Eclectic is the best word to set/define my style.The good news of the year is that, with a friend of mine, we wrote a book about the kawaii scrap booking style. (release date March 16th). Kawaii is a funny and colorful style. In the book, we explain the use of cute symbol and a more freestyle move.
Today, I’m really fulfilled woman with my art….
