July Inspiration with Elena

Hello all,
 Elena back with you today to share my projects for July.
I am still creating the album about my pregnancy.
On this layout, I have used Angie"s Vine as the central focus on my page, falling down,
 like a branch from a tree, hanging overhead.
I just primed it randomly with Gesso.
 I wanted to achieve a more natural look of the page, so I didn't do any other altering to it.
I placed my photo on top of the Gazebo piece and sprinkled white microbeads on it.

and for the Bird Bath I used White Crackle paint and chalk ink.

My second LO is based on some mixed media techniques:
I used the large part of Clock Face Frame
added some Texturez on them and misted with Lindy's sprays.
I placed some Gears under and over the frame, that were inked and painted slightly with Gelatos
Also I cut Lavendar Shrub into separate parts and gessoed it slightly
I cut the flower from the Corner Spring Flowers, colored it with mists and then stamped on it. 
After that I applied some texture paste using the stencil and colored with Gelatos. I grabbed it
and added some gesso on several areas.
The other part I used to create the flower cluster, I used the same techniques on it.
My third Layout was made for Maja Design Blog
I used Frame Oval Ornate, Gessoed and lightly misted it.
Sakura flower were embossed with Lindy's 2-tones powders, these have a great shiny effect.
and for my title 
Happy - Loop Font
I used embossing powders as well as long as some misting 
I hope you have enjoyed my projects this month.
