January projects by Vera Shelemekh

Hello Blue Fern Studios fans!
I'm really excited to present my first projects as Blue Fern Studios design team member. It's a great honor for me to join such a faboulous team! 

First a couple of words about myself.

My name is Vera Shelemekh and I come from the very heart of Russia.  I live in Moscow with my husband and 5 year old son. Scrapbooking is my hobby, my work and my life style. I can't imagine my crafty process without mixed media and fuzzy cutting. So if you come to Moscow and meet a person with scissors in dirty hands, that would be probably me :)
I create in different styles and techniques.

And now give me a chance to try and inspire you to create something really amazing with the best paper and chipboards ever!
My first project is the layout about russian winter full of snow and Christmas fun. We celebrate New Year first and then Orthodox Christmas on January 7th so the celebration is still alive in memory)

I used Vintage Christmas 2 Twas the night as backgroud and cut a lot of elements from Holiday Cards sheet.

The gingerbread house Chipboard is covered with white gesso, then I embossed the roof with Icicle powder and covered candy parts with Fire Engine glitter.

The title "Noel" is also embossed with Icicle powder.

Now let's move to amazing Heartland collection! I've created two projects.
The first one is the layout about myself and the qween which lives deeply inside every girl) The image came up to my mind when I saw the Heartland Love Blooms paper sheet. It became the background for my layout.
My hat and skirt are made of many fuzzy cut flowers.I cut them from Heartland Sweet on You paper.

I also added some Chelsea vines covered with  green acrylic paint and lime embossing powder. 
And some hearts cut of Chunky Heart Panel and covered with antique gold powder.
 For this layout I used some stamping with Deha Vu  and Texture 1 sets. I stamped elements on the remnants of the Sweet on you paper, cut them and adhered to the layers.

 And now the dessert. Heartland collection inspired me to create two chocolate boxes. I like to have such things at hand in case a friend drops in.
The boxes are made of Valentine Party and XOXO papers and decorated with flowers cut from Love Notes. I used the remnants of paper, a puncher and some glue to create paper flowers.

The birds in the middle are taken from the little birds set and covered with Fool's gold glitter.
 The boxes are quite big, appriximately 6х2,5 inch, so someone can keep quite a lot of chocolate inside))
