An Angel Story by Elena Olinevich

    Hello 2Crafty fans. Today I would like to share some  layouts I made for my baby son. He had his Christening ceremony this summer and I have found so many extraordinary photos that I decided to make an album for him.
   This time all my projects are inspired by a story I read recently in a Russian book. The idea is that you have to live your life in a good way, & that while you are being good, your angels can rest, because they can rely on you, that you won't do something bad, and thus they can help someone else who needs their assistance more, at this moment.  Beautiful story, isn't it?
So let's start and keep in my mind, that babies are like angels.
  My first layout  is called

 "While the Angels  Rest"

 I decided to use just very simple techniques this time,  to keep the
 delicate  mood of the layouts..
  So I have used Chandalier 1 

 I covered it with primer, then I added modelling paste, embossed it
 with a heat gun using Starburst embossing powder.
After that I inked the edges with brown chalk ink.

For the Clock Face Frames I used just the primer and embossing powder,
crackle paint and random dots of modelling paste.
 For the second part. The same technique was applied on Corner Rosie's

My second layout  is called
 "The Main Thing"

  Nothing special again, I just misted the
 Esther Name Plate
with Starburst mists.

Next I have just used the same techniques as I did
 with the  Helena's Corner.

Here I have  just added  some touches of gesso.
For the Iron Fence I covered it with Gesso, then Crackle paint
and embossed with Ruby Black embossing powder.

Here  I have  embossed the chandelier from Vintage elements 1.

  Here I have used a  Mini Fob Watch, which was just inked with Distress ink.

My last layout  was made for Manor House Creations,
& since the photo was taken on this same special day,
I have decided to include it also.
This layout is called
   Cherished Moments

 I have used the same techniques that I have already shared above.
 Here are some close ups on title Cherished Moments:

 Frames Tiny Henri's
(Great for a spot of journaling which I will do later)

Thanks for calling by today.
