Studio Peek: Virginia Tillery

>> Thursday, September 22, 2011

Virginia is a mommy of four adorable kids and a really fun gal. Follow her on Twitter and you'll know what I'm talking about. Beware, there will be posts about Dr Who. Not only does she create sweet, whimsical, vintage-y layouts, but she also makes altered items. So we asked her to share a little bit about where she creates all her beautiful projects.

Tell us about your studio.
My "studio" is basically any room in the house I decide to work in! I don't really have a designated scrap space right now; we have four small children and for now, it just doesn't work the best for our family for me to have a whole room to myself. However, with that said, our dining room does double duty as my studio and our general "work on crafts together" room. :)

Are you a day scrapper or a night owl?
I'm TOTALLY a night owl scrapper. I will occasionally scrap during the day (during nap time!) but the creativity really gets flowing at night. 

What do you do with all your altered items?
I use them to decorate my home, give as gifts, and sell at craft shows. 

Do you have a go-to technique or sketch?
I'm a big distresser. I love to sand edges of papers, ink them, paint on them with mists, and fold down corners. 

Dream travel destination:
Ireland, to visit some dear friends there. Or England, to geek out on Harry Potter and Dr. Who stuff. ;)
Or Greece, to eat yummy food and to relax. 

Superhero power:
To freeze time, so I can fit in all the things I want to do each day! 

Favorite food:
Greek (see above with the travel destinations!)

Favorite color combo:
turquoise and pea green

Perfect weekend:
Sleeping in, lunch with friends, rainy weather, lots of candles, a stack of good books from the library, catching a great live music show with the hubs, scrapping late into the night, and worship with friends at church.

Thanks Virginia for sharing your beautiful home and work with us!

Oh how I wish my space was just half as organized!
