Missed me?;) hehe... I had the pleasure to announce our challenge winner, our giveaway winner and now to make it even more fun, I have the pleasure to introduce and welcome a wonderfully talented lady, Virag Reti!
Welcome, Virag! We are super-excited about you joining the team!
Name: Virág Réti
Blog name: Sugallatok http://www.sugallatok.hu/author/viri/
From: Budapest, Hungary
I am a member of the following design teams: Berry71Bleu, Studio75, Canvas Corp Brands,
Sugallatok (Hungarian). I was a guest designer for different big brands.
Favourite colours: brown in every possible ways...
Favourite media: gel medium, mists, modelling paste
My absolute 'must have' when creating: my non-stick craft mat is the best tool ever and some water in spray bottle
About: Virág means flower in Hungarian. I work as a chief of marketing 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. 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. :)
What inspires me: A paper, a technique, a beautiful embellishment, a good photo can inspire me easily. I really like to recycle products in my creations, sometimes a dirty tissue, a little piece of fabric, an old piece of lace, a dress tag, etc. It happes that I redesign my layouts and reuse some parts of it on another page. I am not shy and hesitant when I made mistakes on my layouts, because everything can be fixed with a little creativity. One of my strength is that I can improvise during my creative process, I do not need to organise a long preparation process for creating the tutorial videos, I do not need to plan everything in advance.
My style: My style is vintage and grunge, sometimes a little romantic, but I cannot define exactly. I can reform day by day. I am able to prepare layouts in different styles, it depends on my mood, the embellishments and the papers I use.

Some of my work:
And here's my inspiration for the new challenge:
I really love steampunk style so I decided that I mix it with fantasy. I found a gorgeous photo of a steampunk fairy. Normally I don't like using mood photos on my layouts, I prefer my photos, my memories, but I fell in love with this one. I used different kind of products and techniques. When I started the layout I wanted to keep it in brown tones, but during the process it formed into green and gold shades. I have never known what would happen during the creative process. I have never had plans what to do and this helps me to be spontaneous.
Wow! I mean, wow! This is what I'm talking about! Thank you, Virag, for this wonderful inspirational piece! It is amazing!
