Photo Tutorial by Tanya Dudkina
{Design Team 'Moment To Shine'}

Hello fellow scrappers! It's Heather McMahon back with you today to welcome
you to another photo tutorial in our Design Team 'Moment To Shine' series. 

Today we have a stunning layout by Design Team 
member Tanya Dudkina from 
Russia. Tanya used our current challenge HERE as her inspiration. Tanya is 
sharing a photo tutorial showing how she made her bold yet so beautiful project.

Tanya was inspired by the pinks and blues, the bling & the glamorous feel. 

Let's learn a little about Tanya....

"Hello everyone! My name is Tanya Dudkina & I live in the wonderful city of 
Saint-Petersburg, Russia, with my hubby & with my scrapbooking 
everywhere. I love everything about creating original & interesting things. 
I can't stop testing new products, trying new techniques & making 
new projects - these make me really happy. 

I also have my perfect job - I'm an online scrapbooking educator. This brings 
me so much joy & so many new friends & emotions. I'm thankful for 
each day of my life & you can see a little part of it in my blog here,
 my Instagram here & my Facebook page over here

So let's see what I have prepared today for you. I'm going to show 
you how you can easily make a bright & sweet project."


1. Choose your papers & find some tissue paper - this is a perfect embellishment if you 
want to make light & puffy layers. I chose a diagonal print for the background 
layer, then some pink & starry tissue paper &, lastly, a floral printed paper on top.

2. Now glue everything together, folding the tissue paper as you go. Cut the wavy edge on the top layer with a Spellbinders border die for a gorgeous finish.

3. Add layers using a variety of products. I used paper cuttings, doily die-cuts, washi tape & my new favorite embellishment - colorful juice straws. The straws sit in the folds of the tissue paper perfectly. Use foam adhesive tape to make each layer a bit higher than the previous one.

4. Make a little wreath by forming wire into a circle, then wrap with raffia & add flowers.

5. Arrange your photo, some flowers & other embellishments inside the wreath. 

6.  Add fine chipboard & small details like butterflies around the wreath cluster. 
On the other side add the title & some washi tape.

7. Use tiny pieces like sequins & wooden shapes to add in extra details. I love these!

8. Create a confetti effect with your sequins by placing them so they appear 
to "fall down" from the top of the layout. 

9. Decorate the straws with a trim & subtitle. I used wooden letters. This is my favourite part!

10. Let's add some shine! Glue glitter onto the alphas with 
Ranger Glossy Accents & remove the excess.

11. Take a small brush & add some random splashes of your favourite acrylic paints.
I also covered the title with glitter after that.

The finished project.

Tanya's layers are a striking feature of her work.

A subtitle on paper straws - how clever!
