We Will Miss the Brilliant Layouts & More from Brit Sviggum!

Thank you - May project - Graphic45 3 - Brit Sviggum

We just love the work of Brit Sviggum! We remember seeing her Design Team submission and loving her fresh perspective on layouts. She makes the most beautiful canvases on her scrapbook pages and they are filled with so much whimsy and beauty! She makes her family the spotlight in these wonderful layouts, and we just adore her work. We are so grateful for this time she shared her talents on our team.  We will miss her amazing work so much on the team! She truly is such a talent. Stay until the end of the blog to see a brand NEW project from Brit! Now, let's see what Brit has to say about her creative life:

  1. How do you cre8time for crafting?  

Crafting is relaxing. I love to sit down in the evening crafting, when the children are put to bed and the housework is done. Sometimes I can sit in front of the TV with my husband, just cutting out stuff I know I am going to use later. I like doing a little bit crafting each day…. :)

  1. What is your favorite G45 Collection?

Oh… It`s difficult to only say one collection…. but I think it has to be Voyage Beneath the Sea.

  1. How has your crafting style evolved in the last year, and where do you see your path heading?

I still got my special style where I cut out all my motifs(silhouette them), but I think I am heading more and more over to the mixed media world. I love using all the beautiful pattern papers together with different mediums. So I guess you will see a more mix from me in the future.

Beautiful work, you certainly used Graphic 45 papers in the best way possible to show us different styles and ideas of what can be done .)

I love these layouts!!!!

I need to personally thank Brit for her inspiration - especially where she cuts out figures from photos for her layouts. I actually cut silhouettes from black paper for sale to others. AND YET - I never even thought about cutting my own photos for layouts. Brilliant, Brit!! Thank You, thank you. Best of luck on your creative journey.
