Member Monday with Rachel Hall

This week's Layout of the Week was chosen by Rachel Hall. She chose the layout below, "Magic by Rosângela Philippson.

Rachel said, "I love the texture that pops out of this design immediately in everything from the tearing to the handmade flowers. There is so much to look at on this layout from the flowers, to the layering of various patterned papers and the transparency butterflies, but Ro has pulled off the goal of every scrapper I have ever met, the balance of embellishments and techniques while maintaining a strong focus on her gorgeous photo. Such a gorgeous page that makes our wonderful gallery truly shine!"

"Magic" by Ro Philippson

How about a little interview with Ro to help us get to know this AMM newbie a little better. Read on to see what she had to say.
1.) How long have you been scrapbooking? I have been scrapbooking for five years. Initially it was a hobby that made me very happy, and now I also teach scrapbooking in my city and do events aroud my country.

2.) What are some of your favorite scrapbooking products? I love papers, and all that I can do with it: I can cute, mash, distress, tear, finally do everything that my creativity will allow. I also like paint, flowers and thickers.

3.) What inspires you? I find inspiration in the nature with its unique colors: the rain, a beautiful sunset, the sea... In a beautiful pictures with a story to tell, and also in the galleries that I always visit.

4.) What advice would you give to someone just starting scrapbooking or that you wish someone had told you when you started? My advice is: Don't be afraid of making mistakes, because in scrapbooking nothing is wrong. You are free to do whatever you want, spread your wings, you can!

5.) Besides scrapbooking, what other hobbies or interest do you have? I like to travel, read a good book and watch a good movie.

Rosangela, is the most beautiful person I met in the classes of scrap! It has been my teacher for 2 years and I'm always amazed with its beautiful designs.
I learned a lot from her, which always comes with some technique she saw, developed, learned, finally ... it is curious, generous, and has in his soul an artist!
