Elena - Time for May Projects
Plus we are having a BLOG HOP !!!!!

Hello everyone, Elena  here with you today to share my May projects.
Summer has almost  begun in my part of the world, and I am very happy.
Anyway, it is such a pleasure to work with the photos taken outdoors.
This year my daughter gave up playing the violin.
 I am disappointed about this fact, but I am still 
hoping that she will resume in the future.
I have already used Chinese Lanterns  for one of my previous
 projects, but I like them so much that I decided to use them
 again with a new technique.
I primed them with Gesso, inked the edges with chalk ink, 
applied some Glossy accenst and sprinkled micro beads
 of 2 different colors.
They added both texture and the color at the same time.
 I placed my title on the 
Frame Tiny Henry
  which I had primed and inked beforehand.

To make an accent on my photo I used
painted with inks and sorbets.

My second layout  features a yawning Theme!!!

I have been waiting almost  a year for a photo to use the
and finally I have found it.

I cut it into 2 parts and distressed it with Gesso splats and Gelatos.
I also added some small banners from the patterned papers.

Moreover I traced over the chipboard on my background to look 
more distressed, and added a small flowers on the top,
 ( because it is a baby LO, it has to be moderate in grungy techniques)))

I covered 1.5 Inch Hexagons with patterned papers and distressed 
the edges with  ink and White Pen.

My Third layout was made for
 SketchBook 365 Challenge Blog

I used Frame Retro and Butterfly Frame to create my cluster.
I did lots of painting and distressing, and decorated the
 butterfly with  bling.
  I added  Barbed Wire, cut into one small pieces which I had
 colored  randomly with  Sorbet.
I hope you liked my projects this month, if you would like to see more
