Elena Olinevich- First Post Reveal

  I am very happy to introduce myself today and to share with you my new works that have been created using 2Crafty awesome chipboards. I am so happy that I was given a chance to try them and more over, to inspire you to try them  in your projects too.

  My first LO is a story about me and my darling daughter. When she was born I was very happy that now I will have  a girl, friend, and did all my best to establish such a relationship that will last during my life. Yes, I want to be *A special Kind of Friend to my daughter.*
  When I received my Scraps of Darkness Kit last month I was waiting for a special photo, and after that for a special framing, and I have found it. It is the 
Flowery Swirl Frame.
  First I embossed with the powders slightly,just some spots, misted it. then I inked it  and added Stickles.

I  still wasn't completely happy  with the results, and in such cases my helper is Gesso. so I dabbed some on here & there.

 I have decorated it with flowers, ribbon and lace. and now  it is a perfect framing for our photo.

  Then I embossed the title with powders, inked. and then, my new tip, I covered it with Crackle paint. You may ask me, why I used the powder? the answer it- to add more texture and dimension
 Just try it, and I know, you will be pleased.

 I've cut the title A Mother is a Special Kind of Friend into 2 parts.

 I have one more good friend, and I've made a Birthday Card for her using the
 2 Crafty
 First I embossed it with clear powder and then I began playing with some Starburst mists, as I love the sparkling that they produce. one more tip for you: I do not like to waste a  drop of ink and mist, so I 've misted over the second sheet of paper which I then used for the inner part of my card to write the congratulations on.

 One more Layout,  this is a story about a hot summer day,  a month ago. We were christening my new born son and it was a very hot day, but in the church everything was so calm and  fresh, so I decided to express this  in my LO.

 I have used two different  pieces of  chipboard, and  I like the final eclectic style that I have achieved. I've started with the Blossom Spray,
which I covered with Gesso, then misted with Mango and inked the edges with blue. After that I stamped the flower theme on it.

Next  I added Tahnya's border,
which I covered in the spots with thick Gesso and added some spots of acrylic paint

 I have also added Skeleton leaves which I again  covered with Gesso and misted.

I put also some powder on Heidi's Vine and inked those edges too.

 Thanks for calling by today, and I hope that you will find more inspiration  from our talented Design Team.
