Guest Designer: Julianne McKenna-De Lumen

I'd like to introduce you to this month's guest designer, Julianne McKenna-De Lumen.

Julianne McKenna-De Lumen

Julianne's blog: Jules, the Bling Princess

My name is Julianne McKenna-De Lumen (otherwise known as Jules). I live in warm and sunny Brisbane, Australia (while wishing I could be somewhere cold and snowing). I have only been scrapbooking for 3 ½ years. I have two darling daughters, Malayla and Keana, both willing subjects for my endless photos and scrapbooking. You will find that they feature in most of my layouts. Due to my love of bling, my girlfriends have nicknamed me “The Bling Princess”. You can find more about me on my blog:

I am a design team member for both Blossies and Aussie Pub Calls Roadmaps.

In my spare time (not that I have much of that), I go to the gym, read (love the Twilight series and most science fiction/fantasy genres), go to the movies, learn karate with my daughters and husband, and enjoy traveling (anywhere, anytime).

For me, it is a huge thrill and honour to be a guest designer for So Sketchy! So, a big thank-you for having faith in me. I hope I can inspire you to let your creativity flow.

Here's is the first sketch that Julianne had to work with:

I just adore all of the paint and pen work Jules has added to her page. She has used the sketch to a "T" but she's added a bit of her own style to it. I live the use of the paper and ribbon together for the strip down the middle of her page. A great use of the sketch!

For this page Jules has flipped the sketch and has her 3 photos on top instead and it looks fabulous! She's used a fun shaped journaling page for her story and her sweet cluster of flowers is the perfect touch to this fabulous girlie layout! Wonderful page Jules!

stay tuned later this month as Jules brings us a few more sketch creations!
