DT Introduction - Fiona Johnstone

Hi! My name is Fiona Johnstone and I live in Sydney with my husband of almost 10 years and our two children Zane 6 and Lily who turned 5 yesterday. 

I went along with some friends to a beginners scrapbook class back in 2005 whilst pregnant with Zane and loved it, but didn’t get right into it until after Lily was born in 2007. My style is constantly changing as I love to try new techniques, but I try to keep my photo’s as the main focus and always use them as the starting point for creating my layouts.  I have been fortunate to be published in Scrapbook Creations & Scrapbooking Memories magazines.

I love to use chipboard on my layouts and was very excited to be asked to be a part of the 2crafty Design Team. I look forward to sharing my work with you and hope I can bring you some inspiration for using chipboard in a variety of ways. 

For my first layout I have used one of my favourite flourishes Ariels Spray. I have inked it with distress stain to match the greens in the paper. 

I have also tucked in a cute little birdcage which I have inked with white distress ink, then added some glimmermist in leather to make it look a little worn.

I am looking forward to sharing some more layouts with you soon and hoping to inspire your use of chipboard, alongside the rest of this fabulous design team.
