Elena's February Projects

Hello everyone!
 Today I have a couple of  projects I want to share with you
 that I've made for a friend of mine. Her daughter finishes school in May
 and she wanted to collect some of her photos to make an album.
So the first one is called.....
**My Sunshine**
I used a 2 Crafty title,  My Sunshine,
which I had  left from a  previous project.  I embossed it with two different
 embossing powders, golden and teal, and here it is how it turned out.
 I've created  some textures and grunge here on Clock Face Frame.
I covered Clock Frame Partly with gesso, then applied
 Perfect Medium  using a brush and then embossed it. 
The same technique was used on Parisian Border.
Which I cut into two  parts.
For My second Layout
**Happy Together**
I used candy bright colors and a photo
taken more than 10 years ago.
I liked the idea with the tree so I used
Flourish X-mas Tree
(who said it can be only be used for  Christmas?)
 I 've cut it into two parts. I didn't want to loose it, so, I topped one
 branch on top of the photo and the other half I  placed on the other
 side of the photo.
I gessoed it initially and then applied two tones of acrylic paint
 with a sponge. Next I decorated it with the bling and placed
  flowers under the main part of the tree.

The same technique was used on 

Finally my last layout for today,
( I was struggling which one to choose, as I use 
2Crafty on almost everything I do)
I decided to show you the one I made for CSI  #59
featuring a Love theme.

 I painted one with white gesso, the other with black gesso.

I just inked the third one.

A set of Tattered Hearts that have two  in a pack.
The bigger one...

The smaller one...

I hope you liked my projects & different  themes. I do hope that
 perhaps you have discovered some new ways of using
 your paints and powders.
