New To You: Celeste by Captivated Visions [Freebie and Coupon]

cvisions celeste addon 600 300x300 New To You: Celeste by Captivated Visions [Freebie and Coupon]

New to You is designed to help you discover designers you might not know. Every month we select a designer, showcase layouts from one of their kits, and introduce you to their style. In addition, the designer provides a free add-on kit just for you, our readers!  You never know, you might discover a new favorite or two!

This month, let's meet Rachel of Captivated Visions. DST: Tell us about yourself and your family. Rachel: I’m 35 and from the United Kingdom. I live with my husband, Simon, who is also my best friend and tech guy! I’ve been dabbling in design for four years or more. It’s such a wonderful creative outlet and release for me, I can’t imagine myself ever doing anything else! My designs have been available at Scrapbook Graphics since October 2012. You’ll find an eclectic mix of design in my shop inspired by mixed media and art journaling, which is my new passion, along with digital scrapbook products from my previous store which are more classic in design.
DST:How did you begin digital scrapbooking?
Rachel: I stumbled into the digital scrapbooking community after discovering some designers via a signature tag hobby I’d been enjoying for several years. I tried my hand at a few layouts and it wasn’t long before I started to experiment and made my very first kit.
DST: What inspires you to design?
Rachel: Many of my designs are as a consequence of creating in my mixed media art journal. I normally start out just creating a page off the top of my head, experimenting and creating freely. I often work on several backgrounds at the same time, spritzing and painting and stencilling! I’ve created many beautiful colour schemes and kit ideas this way and that’s how things normally start. Pinterest is a favourite place to sit and drool over inspiration and I love to follow blogs and flickr accounts of other mixed media artists and art journals. It can be as simple as a pattern, a quote or a colour scheme that gives me the design bug!
DST: What other hobbies do you enjoy? Rachel: There are hobbies outside of Digital Scrapbooking and Art Journaling?! In my spare time, the hobby that I enjoy most is Art Journaling. If I’m not creating in my studio or on my computer I’ll be watching a movie with Simon. I enjoy cooking and reading too!
You can find Captivated Visions at Scrapbook Graphics.
