Photo Tutorial by Galina Filippenko
{Design Team 'Moment To Shine'}

Hello! 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 simply sensational layout created by our Design Team member 
Galina Filippenko from the Ukraine. Galina used the stunning 
mood board from our current challenge here as her inspiration. We saw a 
sneak peek of Galina's project at the beginning of the month & now she is 
back to share her full photo tutorial.

Galina was inspired by the sepia colours in the mood board as well 

as the map pattern & travel theme. She took her holiday photo with a 
vintage camera, using overexposure to create pretty pastel colors to 
match the vintage feel of this month's mood board.

Here's a little about Galina:

"Hello everyone. My name is Galina Filippenko & my 
nickname is Galachko. I live in Kiyv, the capital of 
Ukraine. I'm in love with my city & its history. 

I started scrapbooking about 2 years ago. My favourite style is nautical 
as I love the sea! My style is experimental but I like mixed-media as well 
as clean & simple styles most of all. I am crazy about stamping! 
I love the smell of new paper & am a self-confessed paper hoarder.

I love to connect with people online. You can find my Blog here
Facebook herePinterest here & Instagram here."


1.  Apply white gesso onto the background paper with a foam 
sponge. This allows the gesso to blend softly.

 2. Create texture with pieces of gauze, gluing them down with white gesso.

 3. Spray a few similar colours over the area you want to colour.

4. Spray a contrasting colour in a few places.

 5. Add accents with dark distress ink using a water brush or sponge.

 6. Stamp over the area you've been working on. Combine a few 
types of stamps such as script & geometric.

 7. Choose papers & embellishments for your photo & glue in place.

 8. Add texture paste with micro-beads under & around the 
embellishments to complete the project.

 Galina's gorgeous finished layout.

 Galina added transparent micro-beads to create waves beneath the photo.

 Sprays blend beautifully on soft fabrics such as gauze.

Galina used different stickers to create her title on the layout.
