Melinda was chosen because of her bold use of flowers and style. She is very clever at using flowers on her ‘boyish’ pages.
Hi my name is Melinda Thompson. I am married to a wonderful husband Brad of 11 years and we have two adorable boys, Riley 4 years, Finlay 2.5 years who are my constant source of inspiration. We live in Emerald in Central Queensland and just love the quiet country life.
I started scrapping around the time that Riley was born but only really became ‘serious’ about 2 years ago. Now I am hooked!! Scrapbooking to me is a wonderful combination of creative release and a way of recording our family’s memories. I love to scrap and journal about the little & insignificant details of my boy’s life. I do something scrap related nearly everyday, if I’m not scrapping I am thinking about it, browsing through magazines, online galleries and blogs or simply taking photos of my little boys.
My style is always evolving, not sure if I have a style as I love to experiment with new techniques, so it often depends on what I am scrapping or the challenge. Even though I have two boys, I am not afraid to use flowers on my layouts. But I do love to use any distressing technique, layering, stitching and non scrapping embellishments on my LO’s.
I have had a number of LO’s published with Scrapbooking Memories and have quite a few waiting to be published. I am currently on the Design Team for Colour Combos Galore, Purple Pumpkin and the Creative Team for Stuck Sketches?!
I am very honoured to be part of this Design Team and I look forward to sharing my work with you soon.
