Sketch - 76

Good Morning Everyone! It's a fabulous Sunday morning here at Creative Scrappers! I am still trying to adjust to the time change here but overall I am excited that I have an extra hour to scrapbook today! Hubby is at work, and I have all day to play!!!

It is with great pleasure that I showcase our next sketch from our new sketch team member Irene Groneng. You'll notice our new sketches will have some form of color and a few new designs for you! The one Irene created for us today is fabulous for a little paint, glimmer mist or shapped papers. Also today we have our very first MALE guest designer!!! Yes, we do! I have been a fan of Peter's work for a few months now and I think you'll enjoy his layout and blog as well. So, let's get this party started shall we?

Sketch 76


Our Guest Designer
Peter van Tilburg

I’m Peter van Tilburg and live in the Netherlands in Werkendam. I am a 21 year old boy.

At this moment I’m still busy with studying. This is my last year of the PABO, a special school for getting my teaching-degree for primary and elementary education. Just another while and than I really can be teaching the kids at school myself.

I have been scrapbooking for about 5 years. I have been published in the Dutch magazines Cards Only and Scrapbook Magazine. You can find my work at my blog. www.scrapsfromaboy.blogspot.com

I’m very Young and also beeing a guy, something you don’t often see in the scrapworld. Until 5 years ago I didn’t have any hobby, but I got rather bored. So I started searching to find something I would like to do. At the library I did see a book about scrapping. I started to read this book and I did get very enthusiastic about scrapping. I started very simple, after that I did find the scrapworld at internet. The different forums, the galeries and many other sites. I just did get more and more enthusiastic, now I’m completely addicted!

I’ve been a member of two Dutch scrapbookstores with their Design Teams. Afterwards I’ve been a Designer by Card Patterns. And today I have been published publishing in the Dutch magazines Cards Only and Scrapbook Magazine.

Too bad nowadays very few guys are busy in the world of scrapping. It would be great to see more male scrappers. It is so much fun and for real it isn’t just for women. I’m not sure if I do have a different look at my subjects or my way of scrapping. I don’t suppose there is so much difference at all. But yes, I’m rather a very quick scrapper. I do glue it all just rightaway on to my work and I’m finished with my layouts mostly within an hour. But there are also female scrappers who do work this way. So before starting I don’t know how my layout will be showing afterwards. Sometimes I do have something in my mind, but while beeing busy scrapping the results are mostly different and most time it is a surprise again.

But I do agree, beeing a male scrapper they always notice me for sure.
