My name is Evelyn Walter and I am so very happy to be joining the C'est Magnifique Kits Design Team. I live in a small village in Bavaria, Germany, about 45 minutes from the Bavarian capital Munich, well known all over the world for it's Oktoberfest. I am a single mum to two children, a son aged 21, who doesn't live at home anymore and a teenage daughter of 15.
For my profession I am a teacher for home economics and handwork. I teach children cooking and several techniques from paper crafting, crocheting, knitting, woodwork and more. In my spare time I love to craft for my own desires. I've been creative since I was a child with changing preferences, from pottering to sewing.
I discovered scrapbooking about one and a half years ago by browsing the web and tried my first page - and what shall I say: I immediately fell in love with it! Since then I try several techniques, particularly mixed media with all its possibilities is a favourite of me. I also like to make cards, alter items, make canvases and of course layouts. I love the steampunk style as much as flower and vintage style, it depends on my mood and the picture.
I´m looking forward to the time at C'est Magnifique, a big adventure for me, because it is my first time being a member of a Design Team. I hope for your support and do my very best to give you some inspiration!
I really enjoyed working with the beautiful January Edge of the Brook Kit and all the fabulous Add-Ons, which you can find here. For my first layout I worked after the January Sketch, you can find the challenge information here. The chipboard frame looks so romantic!

I used the Main Kit, flowers from the Flower Add-On and some supplies from the Mixed Media Kit.
The frame I painted with Prima Finnabair Art Extravagance Platinum Crackle Texture Paste, from the Mixed Media Kit, the shimmer is so lovely. I used from my stash only some ink.
For my second layout I used some different papers to matt my photo. Here I wanted to go more colorful. I used the Main Kit and some items from all the pretty Add-Ons.

Here you can see the stencil from the Mixed Media Kit. From my stash I used Modeling Paste, different mists, several stamps and Gesso.
The pretty flowers I misted with the same colors to make them fit.
Here you can see some pieces of the Bo Bunny Noteworthy die-cuts, which you can find in the Embellishment Add-On.
I made a start to finish video, I hope you enjoy!
The grid beside the photo I cut out from the Blue Fern Studios Boston Lattice Chipboard from the Embellishment Add-On. From my stash I used a punch, stencil, modeling paste, cheese cloth. stamp and ink.
I used the Manor House Creations Serenity Flower from the Mixed Media Kit and several parts from the Embellishment Add-On. The background I painted with C'est Magnifique Blue Bird Sparkle Chalk Paint, there are twinkling parts, which sparkle beautifully. I also painted with Prima Platinum Crackle Texture Paste, the cracks look like ice here. From my stash are the die-cut snowflakes and icicles, doily and the handmade "snowball."
