Special Guest Spotlight on

We are pleased in 2019 to offer you a new twist on our 
Special Guest post. Each month, we will choose a participant from our
main challenge whose work quality and interpretation of our challenge
made us absolutely want to see more and formerly introduce them to you!

So today, we happily feature one of our December Main Challenge entrants,
as our first GDT of 2019, our February Special Guest, EZSTER GENCSI.

Let's learn a little more about Eszter through her own words:

Hello everyone! I am very happy to be here today. I was very honored to be invited by this amazing team whose work I have been watching month by month and to which challenges I was always excited to play along. 

My name is Eszter Gencsi, but my work is known as Scrap by Eszter. I live in Budapest, Hungary, with my husband and our 10 year old son. I was introduced to scrapbooking 10 years ago, and my favorite technique today is mixed media. This technique woke up the artist in my soul forever. I have loved it for the last 3 years and I have been creating with it ever since. My favorite form of papercrafting are layouts. My favorite colours are pink, gold, green, turquoise and brown. 

You can visit Eszter at the following links:

Here is a reminder of our February ALWAYS & QUOTE Main Challenge
 followed by Eszter's gorgeous project which was inspired by it.

Read below as Eszter describes in her own words how she was inspired
by our word and how she chose to incorporate our creative challenge:

The word inspired me to create a layout with a book theme. I wanted to outline by this creation that what you read is forever yours. I have always loved to read. There is so much knowledge and memories to gather through a good book and you will ALWAYS end up more fulfilled. 

As for the creative challenge, instead of using a specific QUOTE on my page, I decided to add many quotes, not so specific, by adding book paper as part of my embellishments. I have also incorporated a quote handwritten, slipped behind the photo on the left.

Let's take a look at some details:

WOW! What a stunning page that Eszter has created!
Her layering and use of so many beautiful embellishments to frame the gorgeous image makes this layout a true masterpiece, perfect for our challenge.

A big THANK YOU to Eszter for joining us 
as our February Special Guest!

We hope that you will take inspiration from Eszter's creation
and that you will play along with our February Main Challenge.

You have until February 28 to link up!
