Katelyn Grosart - Head Shot

Katelyn Grosart
 

“Hey G45 Fans! I’m Katelyn Grosart and I live on beautiful Vancouver Island, BC with my boyfriend of 7 years.

I’ve spent the last 8 years in the papercrafting world, working in a scrapbook store, as well as teaching a variety of classes. You’ll find me most of the time in my scrapbook room designing various cards, mixed media pages, scrapbook layouts, mini albums, and altered items.

In my spare time I love to read a good book while drinking a green tea latte or London Fog from Starbucks. When I’m not reading, I love to spend time with friends or watch a good movie. When the weather is nice, you’ll often find me outside taking advantage of the beautiful Canadian weather.”

Fun Facts:
 

  1. My all time favourite paper collection from Graphic 45 would be Botanical Tea, although Nature Sketchbook would be a close second.
     
  2. I’m a big Netflix watcher while I craft. My current favourite Netflix shows are: Grace & Frankie, House of Cards and Schitts Creek.
     
  3. I can’t live or craft without my fussy cutting scissors. I have 5 pairs just for fussy cutting in case I lose one in a pile while I’m crafting.


Now that you’ve learned a bit about Katelyn, she’s going to share with you a new project.

The Sea is Calling and I Must Go

Scrapbook Layout By Katelyn Grosart

 

“I love to explore new trends in the paper crafting industry. One of the new trends I decided that I wanted to explore is adding a mixed media element to my project. By using paint and texture paste with a stencil as well as a few other mixed media elements on a scrapbook layout freak the heck out of me and it’s something that I tend to avoid. So I challenged myself to explore this trend of using mixed media elements on a scrapbook layout. By mixing paint, texture paste, stenciling, a few embellishments and fussy cut images I was able to create this beautiful sea inspired layout. Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and enjoy the photos and tutorial of my sea inspired layout.” ~Katelyn Grosart

Tip: 
Once your layout is put together, using white paint, add splatter marks over your entire layout.

Tip:
To add extra interest on your stenciled circles, rub on Opal Magic Wax in Blue and Green.

Here’s something I learned while exploring this technique:  Keep adding paint, stenciled images, stamped images and wax to the base page of your layout. It will get better when you continue to add different layers and elements.

Beautiful Katelyn Grosart, love the threaded look actually makes it look nautical. I also love were you live, Vancouver Island, been there a couple of times. Especially the lovely Victoria. Great show to watch while crafting as well, can't get enough of Grace and Frankie.

Great layout, Katelyn. You live in a beautiful area and this collection showcases this. The starfish and seahorse really bring out the colors of the sunset. This collection is just perfect for vacationers to the beach, as well perfect for those of us living near a beach. I have so many pictures of our Lake Erie sunsets, I need this collection to show them off.

I'd have to agree about the nature sketchbook. I do, as well, like it. My second favorite would have to be the portrait of a lady. I received that collection most recently and haven't put it down. I've done four different projects and now about to make cards with my left overs.

I really love the use of this colourful graphic 45 collection in a scrapbook layout. Personally I always struggle with the embellishing part of my projects (mostly minialbums). Using cut outs from the paper is something I really need to get better at. I think Katelyn would be a great teacher at that!
