 Another week of beautiful projects has flown by! And we have been so inspired. Spring is here in the Northern Hemisphere, and we are feeling excited about the change of seasons!

"For this piece I use chipboard and I cut out part of canvas so I get transparency in background, This bring some extra dimmention to my work. Between layers of my main composition element I put double layer of foam squares this way I could slide some chiboards. I worked mostly on portrait of a Dady collection and I add few elements from Lady's Diary collection that I had alredy cut out.

In my spare time I often cut out elements from papers scraps it makes my crafting easier and faster. I storage them with collection that they belong in small plastic bag . All collections I arrange by colors so all similar colored scraps are right next to each other." ~Olga

"Sometimes an idea for a project doesn’t want to shape in our head, and sometimes the mojo visits and only after looking at ONE something, we get the full and immediate idea of  how we want our project to be. This is what happened to me, once I saw a drawer pull.

It did not come with the smaller screws, so I couldn’t securely attach it to the cover of a box or an album, unless I decided to glue it down.

That’s why I thought of using the long screws of the pull for holding the album’s pages and be a base of the binding. A little strap on the side to hold the album closed and a fantastic paper by Graphic 45 finished everything off. I hope you like the result." ~Alexandra

Beautiful! Love monochromatic projects! Well done.

Gorgeous art!!!

Both of these amazing creations blow my mind! Stunning! TFS!

So many possibilities with Portrait of a Lady!

Beautiful projects! It's funny how ideas come to you. Once I was in need of a metal knob for a project but I was out of them (and no craft stores where I live!); then I went to the hardware store for something and walked by the cabinet pulls and knobs - voila! Not as pretty as a G45 one, but it did the job!

So pretty.

Beautiful creations today! Love Portrait of a Lady!! Judy D.

Portrait of a lady looks really beautiful - another raid on my piggy bank coming !!! Thank you for the inspiration.

Such a pretty album Alexandra! Gorgeous layout from Olga as well. Portrait of A Lady is so beautiful; so many gorgeous possibilities !

I like the idea to use drawer pull screws to bind an album...rather unique! Thanks for the idea!
