Hi Lovely Scrap the Girls followers,

This month I have a Homegrown Guest Designer that you may recognise from TV...Please welcome Dawn Lewis.

Dawn is a professional crafter, which is exactly as cool as it sounds.

Working out of her home studio, accompanied by Quality Control Kitty, Dawn creates projects for craft magazines, runs an online cardmaking supply store, keeps up with 2 YouTube channels and does some pretty cool freelance design work (including Australian Girl, Semco, Francheville, Milford Threads & DMC to name a few). You may remember her from her days hosting Scrap It TV, Australia's very own papercrafting television show. Dawn teaches craft classes at her local sewing machine centre on the NSW Central Coast, and recently was a speaker at The Artful Business Conference. She believes that craft of any kind is good for the soul, the mind and the hands, and that when you master the basics you can go on to break all the rules!

Here is Dawn's Layout:

And this is what she had to say:
I know you can't tell from the black & white photo ... but the bodice of my wedding dress was red, and my veil was gold. I guess I've always been drawn to unusual things, and my wedding day was going to be no exception to that rule!!! This mood board was just so "me", and I was drawn to the feather motif and deep moody colours, though I did brighten them ... it was a happy occasion afterall 😀 Absolutely every item on this page came from my stash, some pieces are over a decade old, but I love how it all came together. The black, red and cream cardstock is all leftover bazzil from old projects ... nothing goes to waste on my papercrafting desk!!!

Go and check out everything Dawn has been up to...Here are her social media links.







Make sure you link up your layouts.  The entries so far this month are pretty awesome and remember there are two prizes, an international one and an Australian one.
