Guest Designer Tatiana Yemelyanenko

Hi! We're thrilled to have our September Challenge Winner Tatiana Yemelyanenko as a Guest Designer today! Enjoy her take on the October Challenge!

My name is Tatiana Yemelyanenko. I'm from Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine. I fell in love with scrapbooking and mixed media in the end of 2011 and now I'm totally addicted. I love that scrapbooking helps me to capture the moments of my life and brings feeling of creativity in ordinary days. I like to experiment with different styles and techniques and use mists, paints, texture pastes and stencils in my projects.

I was inspired by the photo in the right corner of the October Mood Board and tried to recreate a fall mood with colors and embellishments.

The background was created with different mists, glitter and stamping.

I cut leaves, pumpkins and branches on a Silhouette, added wooden embellishments and chipboard which were covered with Jacquard and Luminarte paints.

The journalling I hid in the branches.

This time of year is about celebrating the breathtaking array of colors and textures and the sense of change and anticipation that is evident all around us. We want to see how you are falling for Autumn!

Founder Marie Jansson says: "In the fall of 2004, a dear friend asked me to join her to a scrapbooking course. From that moment, I became totally amazed and thrilled by all the beautiful papers and decorations in the art of scrapbooking. After some time as a captivated scrapper, I got curious to create my own patterns. I have always had a devotion for color and form. I had access to great printing facility, as I worked at a printers office. Since 2007, I have been blessed to be able to work with my great passion - to design and create colored coordinated paper.
