Louisa takes "upcycling" to the next level by turning bits and pieces from around the home into journals and notebooks. She is a self-taught crafter who facilitates weekly scrapbooking and journalling sessions in her home, and in her spare time she works on journals and memory books to either sell or as gifts for her family and friends.
Louisa enjoys using all kinds of mixed media in her journals, from the typical stamps, fabric, papers, and the less traditional - junk mail, tea and coffee, and old books.
Lately she has been incorporating interactive elements in her journals, such as pockets, hiding places for photos, and colouring in pages - a lot of fun for any age!
