Nastya Istorkina {Ukraine}

Let's get to know Nastya a little better!

"Hello! My name is Nastya Istorkina. I live in Ukraine with my husband, 
1 big dog & 2 cats. I’m an optimist! I love scrapbooking with all my heart! 
I love to create something interesting and colourful everyday, 
so my hands are always dirty with paints!  I love mixed media & love 
to make multi-layered layouts about my family.  I find inspiration 
in everything around me because the world is full of bright colors & emotions!  
You are welcome to visit my blog at 
& instagram at  I'm really happy 
to create something special for SATW as GD! :)"

Take a look at the gorgeous layout that Nastya created based on the May mood board!

Nastya has incorporated many elements from the mood board
from paint sprinkles on her background to black & white contrasts
& all the gorgeous colours from the images.

You can see here the fabulous multi-layered style of Nastya's,
created with paper, chipboard, fabric & an assortment of embellishments!

There are so many intricate details to this page.
If you look closely, Nastya has even added some fine stitching & micro-beads.

Thank you so much Nastya for participating in our challenges &
for agreeing to be our Guest Designer this month.
We absolutely love your layout & are very impressed by your creative talent!

Please leave Nastya some love in the comments
& visit her blog HERE to see more details on how she created

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

be picked as 1 of our TEN TOP PLAYERS of our 2nd year.

But remember, everyone has a chance to win some awesome prizes!
