Please welcome back the winner of July challenge and former Design Team member
Hi, I'm Georgia, I'm 37, from Tasmania Australia where I live with my husband, teenage son and furry cat child, Oscar.
I would describe my style as modern grunge with a real love for art mediums and stamping. I create mostly 12 x 12 layouts and journals with the occasional off the page project and canvas.
I currently design for Ingvild Bolme, 2Crafty Chipboard, Australian Scrapbooking Memories Magazine, Scrap365 magazine in the UK and Paperhaus magazine as well as running and designing for my own small online scrapbooking storeI am very excited and honored to be back at OUAS as a guest designer. OUAS is very close to my heart as was one of my very first design teams.
