Special Guest Spotlight on

This month's incredibly talented Special Guest Designer will be sure 
to inspire you, and with no further ado, here she is!!

Jaya Raghuvanshi is well known in the international scrapbooking community 
for her gorgeous mixed media style and use of stunning images
and creative compositions filled with lots of beautiful embellishments.
We all have been admiring her work for a while, and we are 
absolutely thrilled that she agreed to be our April Special Guest!

Let's learn a bit more about Jaya as she introduces herself:

Hello friends! My name is Jaya Raghuvanshi from Mumbai, India. 
I am a mixed media style scrapbooker and I love playing with colours,
textures and different mediums. Mixed media gives me the freedom to go wrong, 
make mistakes, learn and create... and that is why I am so hooked on it!

I am currently designing for some wonderful papercrafting teams
including my all time favorite... Prima Marketing Inc.
Apart from papercrafts, I also love travelling and photography.
I would like to thank More Than Words for having me!

You can find my work here:

Here is a reminder of our April DREAM & BLACK/WHITE +1 challenge
followed by Jaya's wonderful layout inspired by it.

Below Jaya describes in her own words how she was inspired
by our word and how she incorporated our creative challenge:

I was really inspired by this month's challenge image.  
The zebra stripe pattern is one of my favourites and I love how well 
it goes with my cute black and white baby photo.  This was my primary
inspiration for this page.  I love the word inspiration for the month, DREAM,
and I used it as my title as it goes perfectly with the adorable sleeping baby.

I incorporated tons of Prima Marketing flowers and media. Teal is my favourite colour
so I used it as my extra to the BLACK/WHITE creative challenge palette.
I added a little teal on the background as well for some contrast.
The white flower centers have been misted with the same colour.
I love how this page turned out and I hope you like it too!

Oh, we do not only like Jaya's layout... we adore it!
She has captured the black and white contrast brilliantly
and couldn't have opted for a more beautiful colour accent.
Plus, that sleeping baby photo is just perfect for this month's word!

Here are some close-ups:

A big THANK YOU to Jaya for joining us as our April Special Guest!

We hope that you will take inspiration from Jaya's creation
and you will play along with our April Main Challenge if not already done so.

You have until April 30th to link up!
