Wrapping up our Month Long Birthday Celebration !!!

Thanks to everyone for participating in our month long Birthday Celebration !! It has been fun and we hope you've enjoyed the extra sketches and all the inspiration. The final sketch to wrap up the celebration is a first for Inspired Blueprints ... a circular layout !! You're going to love this !! The Design Team has had so much fun with the sketch and we hope you will also. So here is Sketch 34 :


Our guest designer is the lovely and oh so talented Ngaire Bartlam from Australia. Her style is colorful, eclectic and artsy. Here is a bit about Ngaire and her take on this sketch : 

 Nraire hs

A Brisbane based Artist and scrapbooker for over 10 years, Ngaire has written two books: "Lumpy Bumpy"  and   “Its all about YOU”.  She regularly creates for Tarisota Collections, Printblocks and Fiskars Australia … also contributing to several magazines and guest design spots each year. She has  been a sell out instructor for the Australasian Scrapbooking and Papercrafts Conventions. Previously a long-time tutor for the ISC conventions, she is now a freelance artist and instructor, teaching all over Australia and beyond.

“My style is eclectic and breaks the rules. I love using lots of colour, texture and embellishment.  I like to have fun with my art, and as such, my classes are all about enjoying the process as well as loving the end result. My passion is to encourage all class members to open their minds and their hearts, and to really experience JOY on their creative path, where ever it may take them.”
