Please meet.....



My name is Natalia. I'm 20-year-old girl from Poland. In the Internet I appear under a nickname Nats and you can meet me in my little creative space under this address: http://simplevariations.blogspot.com. I'm a second-year student of English philology, translation course. I've been a great lover of art from my early childhood, but I discovered scrapbooking about 2 years ago eventually taking my first steps in this area 1.5 year ago.

I love it because I can discover and learn new things every time during the process of creating. 

I fell in love with the theme "Paint It", because I've been doing experiments with mixed media techniques for several weeks and it fascinates me a lot. So I took my watercolors and splashed the background of a tag a little bit. I also coloured the biggest flower, which I made out of white paper. The colours from the photo were great inspiration for me, so I used silver, grey, brown and white. 

I hope that you will have as much fun with that challenge as I had! ;)





Hop over to Natalia's blog for more of the beauties she created
