Inspired // Wilna Furstenberg


I have been a huge fan of Wilna for a couple years now. I know she's been around for longer than that but I just adore everything about her! Her scrapbooking, well lets face it, its more art than scrapbooking, is nothing short of amazing! I am so inspired by her every time she posts a video and it shows up on my feed I get giddy! For realz! Ok, if you don't know her she is an artist, and digital designer, a teacher, a mother, a photographer and lover of pretty things.

Now I've never met her in real life, but I feel like I know her! She's got this motherly demeanor to her when she does her videos. I can't get enough of her voice either, she reminds me of my high school English teacher Mrs. Hyde, who was also from South Africa. I am instantly taken back to days of Macbeth, and political issues (she was very passionate about her current events, she really should have been a social teacher). I find that Wilna has that same passion when she does her videos and teaches her classes. She really loves doing what she does, and she does it very well.

I love that when she scrapbooks layouts for her girls, she does her journaling in a form of a letter or a lesson for the girls. I love this! I definitely scraplifted that idea from her. Journal is not my favorite part but I find it SO much easier this way.  Her approach to scrapbooking and art journaling is basically what I loved the most. It's bright, and vibrant, but still airy and soft. If she makes a mistake, oh well, the layering technique of hers will cover up any of those. Her layering, is precise without being precise, and its always on point!

Enough of my yammering check out these photos and if you're not inspired by the end of it, I don't even know what to say!








Like I said she teaches classes and they are now available on her website! I've taken her Lightroom class as well as her two Art Classes which I must say is great inspiration to play or experiment with different types of media.

  1. I adore Wilna too, I could watched her videos all day long and then some. My dad and his family grew up in South Africa so I just love hearing her accent as it reminds me of growing up. My dad lost his deep African lilt.
