Photo Tutorial by Anna Rogalska {Design Team "Moment To Shine"}

Hi Everyone!  
Starting this month on the 24th & 28th of each month we will be highlighting 2 
members of our Design Team in a series call " Design Team Moment To Shine".
We hope to inspire YOU in a BIG way through this series!

 Today we have a step-by-step photo tutorial by Design team member 
Anna Rogalska, from Poland, inspired by our current challenge HERE.

Hello! My name is Anna Rogalska. I live in Poland & work as a garden designer.
I've been scrapbooking for nearly 6 years. My scrapping style is romantic,

 a little shabby & I love mixed-media.  I am definitely a flower addict! 
My favourite forms are layouts, cards & tags. I love to collect inks, paints, 
mists & masks to use in my work. You can find my blog here.

For the June reveal I only showed you a sneak peak of the layout
 I created from Di's June Mood Board so  here is THE FULL REVEAL!

Now I will show you how to achieve this for yourself :)

Cover your page with a thin layer of gesso &  let dry
 naturally or dry off using your heat/embossing gun.
Choose papers & layer them in the order you want them to
 appear on your page. Glue the papers. Use stamps randomly.

 Using your mask apply a thick layer of texture paste randomly, in various
 areas on your page & let it dry, either naturally or using your heat gun. 
To apply texture paste you can use an old credit card or similar.

Start applying yellow mists randomly. 
Add water if desired & allow the colour to spread & form patterns. 
Add green chalk ink to chipboard. Allow to dry completely.

Once dry, add small splashes with black & white gesso. 
Add a few paper flowers.
Wait for everything to be thoroughly dry or dry off with your heat gun.

Start adding your chosen elements:-  photograph, more flowers,
 leaves, chipboard 'Love' title, wire heart & embellishments.

Apply text stamp randomly.  Don't use a stamping block as
 holding the stamp in your hands makes for a freer look.
{stamps come from 7Dots Studio - Cold Country Collection HERE}

(7Dots Studio is one of our 2014 Major Sponsors.  You can find a list
of retailers on the 7Dots Studio site & purchase from your nearest store
OR directly from them IF there is no supplier in the country you live.)

Add more yellow color using a mist & yellow paint with white gesso.
 You can blot off excess with a paper towel. Add stickers with subtitles.

Complete your layout using more flowers, chipboards
 (butterflies), pearls & adding more mists if desired.

Your layout is done!

A few close ups . . .

You can see that I love lots of detail!

{Oh my goodness I just adore Anna's work don't you?  WOWZERS!!}

 A photo :)   papers, stickers, flowers, embellishments, chipboard,
 inks, gesso, modelling paste, mists, paints, mask, & stamps.
