Elena's Colouring Inspiration

Hello! Elena  here with you and it is my turn to share my April projects.
This month all my projects are inspired by spring colors.
My little boy is my great inspiration once again. And moreover 
it is so interesting to combine the vintage or girly pieces in this way,
  they aren't  just for the girls.
I started with the Frames Georgian 
They come 2 in a pack. I primed them with gesso, then took my sponge 
and covered it with acrylic paint and added some Glimmer glaze. 
I placed the smaller one near the photo, and the larger frame 
I placed under one of the photos.
As the final step I stamped them , and it was fun when part 
of the stamp went onto  the background as well
The same coloring was used on one of the
 Vintage Clock Hands.
  Also on the Garden Bench Set.
I just tied some string from the signpost and tied the other
end to my lamp.

For my second LO I did some colouring with Gelatos from Faber Castell.

I primed  the Floral Spays with Gesso and started mixing different 
metallic Gelato with my fingers.

Then I added some dots of Liquid Pearls on the flowers
 and Stickles on the leaves.

A great effect on the Hot Air Baloon.

 My third project I made for Maja Design  using their new
 Spring Collection. So I wanted the LO to be shabby and just used
 Gesso and a Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

which I cut into 3 parts and mixed them
 in different postions.

I did some stamping on it as well as on the
which I placed under the photo.

 I also added some Groovy Flowers.

I hope you've got some inspiration from me today.
