Hello everyone. It's difficult to believe that it is August already. But with each new month, we get an opportunity to introduce you to a new Blue Fern Fan of the Month. For the month of August, please join us in welcoming Mariusz Gierszewski from Poland. He is a fabulous designer and you will love how he uses our products. You are sure to be inspired!
We will turn it over to Mariusz so he can tell you a little about himself:
My name is Mariusz Gierszewski. I come from Poland. I'm 26 years old and I'm young men who love papers, flowers and scissors. I live in Łodź in central Poland. My passions are scrapbooking, and card making. Recently I tried to create something with mixed media.
First work I ever made was in August, 2012. My favorite styles are vintage and shabby. Blue Fern products are awesome for my shabby style. I love to make cards and albums, sometimes layouts. I have been an educator and designer for several manufacturers. I hold a lot of workshops each month in many countries like Spain, Latvia, Greece, Indonesia, Brasil, Sweden, Norway or Slovakia.
In my cards I try to show as much value as possible to the collection of paper. For this card I used the Garden Life collection. These papers are awesome for shabby style and to the vintage look you can see on my cards.
I cut some flowers from papers and make the composition with 3D effect.
Afther that I attached fabric flowers from Garden Florals and Dark Tropic Lilies. At the end I used
gesso to reduce intensive color. In this way I receive soft and shabby effect.
Please be sure to check back next Wednesday when we will have another project from Mariusz.
