Good morning to all my creative friends! We are so glad that you decided to join the Bad Girls Couture blog. I hope we can get to know you better! And also to catch luck and win prizes!

My name Irina Volzhina from Saint Peterburg. I'm 47 years old, I'm married and have a grown-up daughter and a cat called Marusia. By education I am a teacher of art history, I worked in schools and universities and I am currently the specialist in schools administration. I enjoy scrapbooking 7 years. In my life I am used to catch many things and first of all - to live my life! To feel my life fully I need to develop - do, what I like, communicate, learn something new, travel and create! Now I'm a member of the design team Bad Girls Couture. I like our strategy - creativity without rules and fear! Full freedom of creativity and it's very cool! Kits are always something unexpected and interesting! It is very funny!
We do hope you will check out the shop and our previous kits to get an idea about what we are about.
I created this layout using my material from previous kits! It should be a page about me, more precisely about my credo - to live in the present, to appreciate every moment of life!

I love sheets  7 Gypsies  with masonry and I had a photo with a suitable background! I used the black envelopes of Melisa Frances. They have tags from craft paper, looks very stylish. First I wanted to write something on tags, but then changed my mind))) I'm a mystery to myself)))  I made an imitation of the brickwork on the envelope and photo, the effect of overcoming the boundaries of the plane.   

I took the bricks - a chipboard made of cardboard and painted them in the tone of bricks on the patterned paper.  I used a few shades to age my cardboard bricks))) 

And here is a list of questions and answers so you can get to know me a little more!
1. What's your favorite color?  Shades of blue
2. What's your favorite song right now? KADEBOSTANY -Castle In The Snow
3. Who inspires you? I am inspired by the world around me, it's always that different ...
4. Favorite Book? Erich Maria Remarque "Triumphal Arch"
5.Favorite appetizers - grapes and cheese.
6. Where would you like to visit someday?  Wherever you would like to visit someday, my dream is to visit the CHA scrapbooking exhibition in Phoenix, USA. I was in America twice, I visited New York and Boston, traveled on a cruise ship to the Bahamas and Bermuda. But I hope to visit the exhibition)))
7. Who are you in scrapbooking? This is an interesting question))) I'm a scrap technologist, I like different technologies and experiments with materials and styles.
8. I have been scrabbling for 7 years!
9. My favorite producer is American Crafts!
10. These are books about self-development.
11. Favorite artistic technique ... Most often I use plotter clippings, I like to create compositions with them.
12. Favorite Bad Girl Kit so far? November kit, Joie de Vivre
