Photo Tutorial by Sandra Przybylska
{Design Team 'Moment To Shine'}

Hello everyone! It's Heather McMahon here with you today to share our 
February photo tutorial by Design Team member Sandra Przybylska 
from the United Kingdom. Sandra is sharing how she created this 
simply stunning layout using our current challenge here.

Please let Sandra know what you think by leaving a comment!

Sandra was inspired by the quote & the colours of the current mood board.

Here's a reminder about Sandra & her bio:

"Hello! My name is Sandra Przybylska & I'm a mother of one lovely baby boy.
 I started scrapbooking in July 2013 & it has become my biggest passion.

 I love creating layouts, cards and Project Life pages as well as altered projects
 & art journal pages.  I always create with paints & stamps & can't live
without mixed media!  I cannot wait to be inspired here as well as to
 inspire you!  You can find my blog HERE."


1. Take 4 colours of paint & mix each one with a bit of white.

2. Using a wet brush, roughly brush each colour onto the page.

3. Once the paint has dried, apply the stamp with black ink 
over 1 side of the painted area.

4. Glue the pocket page card & the photo in place.

5. Add the embellishments, starting with the floral piece.

6. Using a black pen, draw around the 2 circles (the top 'beauty' circle & 
bottom grey circle) & the pocket page card.

7. Lastly, add my favourite thing - splashes! Don't worry if you don't have mists, 
just use a brush & paint. I used black, blue & green.

8. The layout is complete!

Here are some closer views:

A few layers can make a strong impact.

Note the beautiful paint effect peeking through on the background.
