Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful
Layout by Elena Martynova

Hello crafty friends!

Hoping you are all keeping well in these difficult days and staying positive!

We are forced to stay at home, which gives more time for creativity. 
Finally, I can implement all my ideas that have accumulated in my notebook.

I made this layout using a beautiful paper collection  
and also the best chipboards from 2Crafty.

It has one main photo with a beautiful girl that I found on Pinterest.
But there are also some old framed photos that create part of the background 
and add atmosphere to the layout.

"Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful"

I created a layout with this absolutely gorgeous Flourish Adornment Set
I spent a lot of time decorating it. Several layers of paint, clear glossy, and more strokes of gold paint.
 It was interesting to add and add new layers.

The inscription was painted black and added volume and 
shine with black embossing powder.

My page is about generations of people which are forever linked.
 We keep portraits and photos of our ancestors and remember them in our hearts. 
I added a Mini Fob Watches as a symbol of the transience of time.

The Artdeco Heart added lightness to the layout and
emphasized the elegance and refinement of the girl in the photo.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:

Have a wonderful day and be inspired.
Cheers, Elena.
