Guest Designer: Virág Réti


How's your weekend going? I hope you're not thinking about work just yet... now I said the word you probably do.... but there is plenty more fun to be had. In fact, a few of us have been having fun within our new Facebook Group. Come and join the fun!

Today, we have a very talented lady joining us as a Guest Designer. She wowed us with her beautiful work when she won one of our challenges and she is here today to share some more inspiration for our current challenge 'Glam Grunge'.

I'd like to introduce...

My name is Virág Réti and I live in Budapest, Hungary. Virág means flower in Hungarian. I work as a marketing manager on weekdays, but my passion is scrapbooking. This is not just a craft activity for me, it is my real holiday and time for relaxation. My scraproom is a calm island in this busy world. I started scrapbooking 5 years ago, but last year when I met with mixed media scrapbooking techniques in an American YouTube video I felt that I found my line, the technique what I was looking for. My style is a little vintage and grunge, sometimes romantic and shabby, but I cannot define exactly. I am able to reform day by day. My favourite products are chipboards, flakes, beautiful papers, paints, mists, nowdays flowers, tags. I am able to prepare layouts in different styles, it depends on my mood, the embellishments and the papers I use. I am a coffee lover. I love singing loudly, but my voice is horrible. And I know, I am a bit crazy, because normal is boring for me. :)

The photo that I used was taken in Cinque Terre, Italy during my wedding time and honeymoon. We were walking through the Via Dell' Amore, the Path of the Lovers and our photographer took a lot of pics there. This is one of them. 

I wanted to keep this memory in my scrapbook album. I really love grunge style so I built up the composition on a messy background which was made with tag leftovers, different kind of stencils, stamps and mists. For decoration I used paper scraps, gauze, handmade flowers, stickers, mica flakes and coloured grit.

Wow! Absolutely stunning! And a perfect example of how to mix up grunge with pretty and create Glam Grunge. Lovely! 

Thank you for joining us here today, Virag! Or shall I say... köszönöm,Virág! You are one heck of an artist. I hope you join us again soon! 

Hope you all have a wonderful week! We'll be back soon with some more mixed media goodness! Until then... stay creative!
