It’s Show Time by Elena Martynova

Hello everyone! Elena here with you!
I decided to create an album inspired by the Grunge theme. I used new and one of my favourite collection Hazy Days.
In this album I wanted to play with photos of different sizes and colours. I took a few shots of my daughter, which were made during a Christmas themed photo-shoot. I printed some of the pictures in black and white, and some I corrected in the editor so that they blend with the palette paper.



For the cover I took a piece of blue denim. In all the photos my daughter wears the same blue jeans, so the fabric choice seemed perfect. To make the cover more bright and shiny, so I applied a clear gel through a Dreamscapes – Geometry Stencil and sprinkled some Golden glitter.




On the spread I used all the stencils from Hazy Days and Dreamscapes collection, that were in my design box. An album is a great way to use so many different materials! To complicate the background and make the work more interesting, I used stamps from the Hazy Days and Dreamscapes clear stamps set. I decorated the chipboard with bronze embossing powder. It has become more textured and looks great in the album.






I love the colours and rusty feeling of Hazy Days collection, so I combined some of the Elements and created a layered objects. Although my album is made for girl, which in a month will be 13 years old, there’re no flowers, no pink, no lace! My daughter doesn’t like them any more. She considers herself an adult and she likes rock, grungy dirty colours, wears large size clothing and listens to loud music in the headphones. I tried to reflect that in the pages. During the process I enjoyed paper crafting and combining different patterns. I also added some bright paint splashes.
