It is fun to have an awesome German Scrapbooker and Paper Crafter pale that you can see in person once in while. Janna Werner has an amazing trendy style and is also very sweet. Finally last year we were able to see each other in Germany..two times…and two times it was über* fun. Hope the third time happens soon 🙂
My name is Janna, I am a 34 year old papercraft and mixed media artist from Germany.
I grew up in Oldenburg and moved back after living in Leipzig for 6 years. I am a “real” Northern German girl, treasuring the flat country and a cup of tea in the afternoon 🙂
I live in a house with a small garden and a pond, together with my Danish husband Jesper, our dog Sindri, two rabbits and a few “foster”goldfish. I spend a lot of time in my studio which is in the first floor of our house. Here is where I craft, paint, take photos and work on the computer.
My love for paper crafts and mixed media art evolved in 2010 when a friend introduced me to scrapbooking. Since then I have been working together with well-known papercrafting companies, magazines and artists. Furthermore I am teaching scrapbooking and mixed media online classes and in-person workshops.
I started my blog in June 2010. Originally it was called “Papiersalat und Wollmäuse” and was ment to be a blog about my papercrafting and sewing adventures. As it turned out, I am too impatient for sewing and the “Wollmäuse” (dust bunnies) were promptly decomissioned. Papiersalat is now a place where I share comissioned and “just for fun” work, as well as cooperations, private insights, tutorials, videos and art.
1,2,3… use your sprays!
I am a huge fan of sprays… they are versatile, colorful and nice to look at (even if they are only standing on the shelf..). There are many ways how to use them, in this video I am showing you three different techniques how to apply sprays to your project. Enjoy!
