"You may not be a Picasso or Mozart but you don’t have to be. Just create to create. Create to remind yourself you’re still alive. Make stuff to inspire others to make something too. Create to learn a bit more about yourself." - FREDERICK TERRAL
I’m so happy you stopped by to say hello!
I am Alexandra but on the Internet I am also known as Alex Syberia. The “Alex Syberia” name (not Siberia) is actually my nickname.
My story began in 2017 when I discovered the wonderful world of paper crafting. I was thinking about the name for my future Instagram account and I remembered about a famous adventure game series “Syberia” by Benoit Sokal. (He is a Belgian comic artist and I like his art.) It’s a story about a young New York lawyer, is dispatched to deal with the sale of a former automaton factory hidden in Western Europe. She never thought that this task, as simple as it seemed, would change her life forever… an extraordinary journey that takes her all the way from Western Europe to the far reaches of Eastern Russia… and Syberia is a mythical island somewhere in Russia… I was very inspired by this game and decided to take “Alex Syberia” as my nickname.
Then a few years later, I realized that this story is something that’s very close to me because paper crafting is changed my life!
The art of creating has always amazed me that’s the reason why I absolutely love to create things. Whenever you create something, you want it to be totally unique and one of a kind. I always loved handmade and crafty things and tried all kinds of hobbies from jewellery making to bookbinding until I’ve discovered and felt in love with the beautiful world of card making. In card making I love different styles. I love using bright and bold colors because they enhance your happy emotions for the day! I adore floral designs, watercolors and Copic markers. My passion for this hobby has been growing so much. That’s why in July 2018 I started this blog as a place to share my creations. I hope that my projects can bring joy and inspire others in their creativity. I am active on Instagram so be sure to follow me there for the latest updates.
I’m a self-taught graphic designer and illustrator. I’ve come from an interior design industry. I’ve always loved and appreciated art in its many forms. I have been drawing since 2018. My love for drawing and design launched me into starting my own digital shop in 2019 and I started doing graphic design projects, and then I started working for papercrafting companies as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. I design all kinds of beautiful stamps, dies, paper, stencils and enamel pins..
I started my second Instagram account in August 2020. You’ll find there ideas and cardmaking inspiration, featuring my digi stamps and photopolymer stamps I designed for paper-crafting companies.
