A wonderful guest from India!





Please welcome today a wonderful guest from India!

Hi! I am Anupama Choudary and I live in Hyderabad, India. I am married to an actor and we have two adorable kids - Saanvi,7 & Karishnu,5. I am a trained Interior Designer and did my Masters in Business Administration. However, being a stay-at-home mom and a part-time artist makes me happy! Scrapbooking is my biggest indulgence and I would describe my style as Artsy!
I am ecstatic to be featured on Ingvild's blog as I am a HUGE fan of hers. Even though I have never met her in person, I idolize her. Thank you for having me.


When did you discover paper craft, and why do you still create within this craft?
I discovered this wonderful form of art accidentally when I walked into a store in my hometown and saw scrapbooking supplies for the first time ever. It was love at first sight and I spent 5 hours in the store!!! Eventually, the store went out of business and I bought most of their stock. I then researched online and discovered Scrapbook.com! The first layout I ever laid my eyes on was "Your Childhood" by Ingvild and life has never been the same for me again :)))
Although I started scrapbooking initially to document treasured memories of my kids, it has now become a creative outlet and a way of life for me.


Where do you find inspiration to your work? I am inspired primarily by pictures of my children and vintage family photographs. I am also doing a series called "Postcards from India" to showcase life as I experience it here in myriad forms.
Looking at my favorite scrapbooking products always gets my heart racing especially patterned paper, stamps, mists and inks. Watching video tutorials and visiting blogs of my talented scrappy friends are other ways to keep my creative juices flowing. 


Where, and when do you prefer to create, and how do you prefer to have it around you? Ideally, I prefer to start a layout after dropping the kids off at school. I wish I had a magic wand to do away with interruptions like telemarketing calls, surprise visitors, housekeeping chores...
the list is endless! I have never completed a page in one sitting and my work always spills over into the next day.


How does your scrap place usually look like?
We have just moved into a new, larger apartment and my dream of having a home studio has finally come true! I always believe that "there should be a place for everything and everything should be in its place". Once I finish a page, I clean up and start all over. Me at my scraptable + Coffee = Nirvana!

Do you have any favorite Prima – Ingvild Bolme line products?
My Top 3 faves would be

  1. Chalk Fluid Edgers -Versatile and easy-to-use; amazing colors
  2. Junkyard Findings Collection - UNIQUE beyond words!
  3. Distressing tool - Adds a lot of character; love the rub-on tool and bone-folder too
I am dying to lay my hands on Ingvild's newest Tiny Junkyard Findings (Jeans buttons, clock parts, nuts & bolts, nailheads and special screws).



I fell in love with Anupama's works the very first time I visited her blog. Her unique style was really amazing, and I loved how some of her works really captured "the feel of India". Here are some of Anupama's works, please enjoy!


24x7

Above: A wonderful layout by the talented Anupama. I just love her artsy freestyle looking pages, love her techniques and unique designs!  

Above; Anupama used some Shabby Chic Resin Treasures on top of her photo on her layout for a real 3D feel! Look how dimensional it looks, truly amazing effect! The chosen designs also suit perfect for the style and history in the photo! The white resins Anupama used are"Roman Pillars" and "Windows III" from the Shabby Chic Treasures.


Nana
Above: Anupama here created a masculine and very well designed layout filled with treasures from the Junkyard Findings collection. Just have to love her very cool touches as the "cord looking" drips of paint for the bulbs, and all her layers and little details.  

Above: Several Junkyard Findings gears and a Typo Bulbs are together making a very cool and industrial look, perfect for masculine and/or vintage layouts. Anupama let the dripping black paint function as a cord for the bulb; very clever idea! 

Above:  In the photo corner Anupama added a Typo Zipper with the printed word "Priceless", beside an Industrial Lamps (both from Junkyard Findings) and cool typo pattern paper details.


Brass Box
Above; A vintage brass box. But "just" the box?.. Well, let's take a look inside and see what magic Anupama did with it!

Above; inside the brass box we can find an amazing little 3D story about her beautiful mum, so, so wonderful!  It looks like a little window back in history, like a magic fairytale, framed with a clock design giving an extra feel of time. Anupama really did magic with this box!

Above; Look at her little touches of white paint/mediums, and all the layers of pattern papers and embellishments filling her amazing altered piece about her beautiful mother! Also notice the color splashes on the Shabby Chic Treasure "Street Lamps", very decorative!

Above: Wonderful Prima flowers are surrounding Shabby Chic Resin Treasures as "Window Closers" and "Bird Bath" with the tiny sweet birds.

Above: A metal bird cage from the Shabby Chic Metal Treasures together with the resins and beautiful Prima branches and with flowers. Really wonderful details perfectly placed together by Anupama.

Above: It warms my heart reading this... The brass box is filled with heart warming words about Anupamas mother.

Above; The white bird bath and small birds Anupama used in her brass box above.


I hope everyone enjoyed this wonderful guest's pieces of art just as much as I did. Please make sure you drop by Anupama's blog here to check out more of her amazing works!
Thank you so much for visiting, and have a wonderful weekend everyone!

An extra special thanks to Anupama for being my guest today and for so kindly sharing her talent with us all; truly an honor and pleasure to feature you Anupama.


*hugs and smiles*
Ingvild
