April 2015 Guest Designer
Nina Roganova from Russia

Hello everyone!  Nicole Doiron here with you today!!

It has been such a pleasure this month so far to look at 
all your wonderful creations inspired by the gorgeous 
April mood board, designed by Hera Sugitani {Brazil}.
The amount of creative talent that you share with us 
each month never ceases to amaze me!!
I have the pleasure today to introduce you to our April Guest Designer!

First, please view our current challenge *HERE* 
& our mid-month reveal based on the same challenge *HERE*.

Snag if you have been our GDT!

Her unique style & excellent eye for details earned her 
the 1st place rank in our February 2015 challenge,
& today she's back to inspire us with another amazing creation,
this time based on the April mood board...

Nina Roganova {Russia}

Let's get to know Nina a little better!

"Hello! My name is Nina. I am a wife of 20 years & a mother of 2 awesome children:
a 18 year old son & a 5 year old daughter! We live in Moscow, Russia.
I have been passionate about scrapbooking for almost 5 years now.  
  I like to constantly try new materials & techniques. My favorite product to work
 with is alcohol inks which I especially love to use on transparent surfaces. 
You can visit my blog HERE to see my work & my style. 
I am very happy to have been invited as a Guest Designer 
for such a great blog as Scrap Around the World!!"

Now, let's see the beautiful layout that the April mood board inspired Nina to create!

There are so many beautiful details to look at on Nina's layout,
from the gorgeous mix of colours on her transparent background 
that blend perfectly with the scenery on her pictures
to the layering of numerous elements & mixed media  techniques 
that come together to create a perfect sea-inspired layout.

Nina was able to master her unique style in a way that not just the colours,
but also the swirly designs of the waves in the pictures continue 
on to the background, giving the allusion of actual real water on her page!

You can see below a close-up of one of her embellishment clusters
which are indicate of the many sea elements & theme found on our mood board.

Thank you so much Nina for being our Guest Designer this month
& sharing this gorgeous piece of art with us!

Please leave Nina some love in the comments
& visit her blog HERE to see more details on how she created 
this layout as well as more of her outstanding creations.

We hope that you will be inspired to play along
with our April mood board!

Like every month, we have AMAZING PRIZES up for grabs
so please join us & link your entry as soon as you can!

Challenge closes Thursday, 30th April!
