Video Tutorial by Elena Ovchinnikova
{Design team 'Moment To Shine'}

Hi everyone! It's Heather McMahon back with you today to welcome
you to another video tutorial in our Design Team 'Moment To Shine' series. 

Today we have a beautiful layout with a unique story behind it 
Design Team member Elena Ovchinnikova from Spain. Elena 
was inspired by our current challenge here.

We saw a sneak peak of Elena's layout in the mid-month reveal 
now she is sharing a video of how she made her stunning project.

Elena was inspired by the colours of the mood board & the text in the circle. 
She wanted to create something spiritual, with a global meaning. 
The word "journey" made her think of the musician Estas Tonne 
so she created her layout & video around him.

Let's learn a little about Elena:

"Hi everyone! My name is Elena Ovchinnikova. 
In the scrapbooking world, my nickname is Elena Arts.

I was born in Russia but I have been living in Spain since 2000. I'm married 

I have a little daughter who is my main source of inspiration. In 2012 I discovered scrapbooking & my world changed. I love creating beautiful things, especially with mixed media. I love textures, gesso, modelling pastes, paints, sprays & combining fabric with paper. I am very happy when I am creating I feel full of energy at these times.  I am very proud to be a part of this fantastic design team!

Elena also says, "I am so excited to share my enthusiasm for Estas Tonne, the 
famous Russian guitarist, with you. I feel so alive & happy when I listen to his 
music! You can see him in the photo I used. 

I have created this video tutorial using Estas Tonne's music in the background.
 This music is from his album Bohemian Skies. I hope you enjoy it!"
