More from our Guest Designer ....

Hello again
I have some more to show you today from our Guest Designer for this month, Vicky Varvadouka.
Vicky created a layout called "Together" and a tag!

This is what Vicky had to say about her creative process on the chipboard.....

Title & feather: I painted them black with acrylic paint, I randomly applied some turquoise with a brush and finally heat embossed them with clear UTEE.
Buttons: Two of them were randomly painted with acrylic paints (yellow, turquoise) and I painted the edges black to give them definition. The button in the cluster, I "dressed" it with patterned paper!
Small frame: I painted it orange and rubbed some white with my finger. Then I painted the edges black to give it definition.
Girl silhouette: I used the base as a mask, I draw the outline and then I dabbed some distress ink (broken China) with the applicator.
Button base: I painted it black, I embossed it using a cuttlebug folder and then I heat embossed it with clear UTEE.
Vicky has also created this incredible tag as well...

Clock & cogs: I applied distress inks randomly (Walnut stain, fired brick) and then I heat embossed it with clear UTEE.
Everyday goddess: I painted it yellow and then splashed some red acrylic paint using my brush.

Thanks so much to Vicky for these two great projects.
You can see more of her work on her blog .... VICKY
