Elena's Shares for October

Hello 2Crafty friends . It is my turn to share some  projects for October 
and I am thrilled to start with the Layout I made for
 Scrap Around The World blog.
You might have already heard that 2Crafty is sponsoring this 
challenge this month so I highly recommend you to play with us as
 you have a chance to win an awesome assortment of chipboard
 from 2Crafty.
This is what I have done for them
I tried to follow the sketch and color palette, and found inspiration
 from one of the images with flowers and lace.
The main focus of my LO ( except for the photo), this beautiful 
Harbour Bridge which I primed with Gesso, and colored with
 acrylic paints and chalk inks.

My new favorites are Indian Feather's Set,
 I colored this with chalk inks and mists, and applied Stickles
 for more dimensional look.

Edgar Swirl was primed , 
then I adhered it to the background and started applying acrylic paints
 on the top so they can easily flow into the background as well.
 Also I added some Glimmer Glaze in red.

One of the beautiful Flourish Adornment Set 4
was colored in the same way too.

My second project is an notebook cover
I made for a special friend.

I started with a Fun & Fancy Border
and just primed it with gesso and pull the fabric through it.

To add a more vintage look 
I added Esther Name Plate and placed my sentiment into it.
I covered it with mists and Dimensional Sorbet

and the pretty embellishment is 
which I colored with Dimensional Sorbet too
and added a ribbon bow 

 My last share for this month
is a layout I made for 7Dots Studio blog

I have already told you, that all those new feathers released previously
are my favorites. So this time I used Soft Feathers Set

I just covered them slightly with gesso, stamped on them and inked 
the edges with dark blue chalk ink

I tied one feather with a string and a frame.

Hope you liked my creations this time.
