L is for Labels

This month we've chosen this stunning layout by The Bling Princess

The Bling Princess is called Julianne and here are a few words from her:

"Hi there! My name is Julianne McKenna-De Lumen, otherwise known as Jules The Bling Princess. I live in the very beautiful and scenic Mount Barker, South Australia, and I have been scrapping for 8 years. Fortunately for me, I have one (very tolerant) husband, two
daughters, and eight cats, that are my most willing photographic subjects. When I am not scrapping, you will find me taking photos, being crafty, reading, cooking, or travelling. 

My style has varied greatly over the years. I find it changes as I play with new products, and learn different techniques. However, a love of colour has always been a part of my style, along with an even bigger love of bling, and all things sparkly. My work is feminine, colourful, and all about the details. My go to products include texture paste, masks, Glimmermist, and Pan Pastels. And flowers - I have a whole other addiction there. 

Over the years, I have been blessed to be a part of many wonderful Design Teams - including, but not limited to, Pencil Lines, Zva Creative, PaperHaus, Imaginarium Designs, Kaisercraft and Colorbok. I have loved every minute of working with all these wonderful Design Teams as it has allowed me to grow as an artist, and to meet, and make, some amazing lifelong friends.  
I have been fortunate to be published numerous times in Scrapbooking Memories and Scrapbook Creations. I have my first commissioned article with Australian Scrapbook Ideas coming out later this year. You can find more about me on my blog: . "
