Where words fail, music speaks

Hello everyone!
Another day, another layout (quite a few of my scheduled posts happen to fall on the first days of the month)... :)

Ok today let's talk about dreams.  ScrapsNPieces July challenge is hosted by Athanasia Papantoniou and its theme is "In dreams..."

So in my dreams, where words fail, music speaks.  In reality, this rarely happens, because people usually prefer other ways to express their emotions - outbursts, attacks, angry breakdowns, tears, laughter, smiles...  well, most of the times I choose music! There must always be some music in our dreams and in our daily life!


Athanasia's wonderful moodboard



This is my layout (based on the upper right photo of the moodboard)

and an amazing paper from 7 Dots Studio Destination Unknown, as well as word stickers from the Cold Country Collection




Lately I have been finding myself trying new things, experimenting more with the media and the other scrapbooking elements and I admit that I like it!

So will you play with us at ScrapsNPieces?  We are looking forward to seeing what you will come up with! The deadline for this challenge is July 26th!

Have a nice day!

Life is a gift

Good morning...
I would like to share with you my GD page for White With 1 July Challenge!
It has a different style than my previous ones, more modern, I guess.
Life is a gift indeed....



The crocheted white hearts are a gift from the ultra-talented friend Irini Liolia!


(I have used the amazing Woodbine Red of 13 Arts!)

July's colour is.... Marsala Red (the Pantone Colour of 2015)

I hope you like my take on the challenge... That's all from me now!
I'll be back soon with a new page for ScrapsNPieces!!

Cherish all you are given

Good morning everyone!
After a series of hectic days at work, today I finally won a day for myself!
So I thought to play a bit, try new things and why not? take part in a challenge...

Yesterday I came across in FB this beautiful, inspiring video tutorial by Stephanie Papin and since today is a day with some free time for myself (a miracle, indeed), I decided to watch the video and try the background watercolour technique she is showing us!

I also decided to play with the June Color Challenge of the Lindy Stamp Gang blog, as I really loved their colour combo!

After some playing with my 7 Dots Illumination Collection and a few LSG mists, 


this is the page that came out

(it's talking about how we must cherish every single thing God has given us in our life, family, friends, people, abilities, possibilities - even though our life might seem empty some times, it's really not: in the empty room there are some beautiful balloons rising up, we only have to look upwards)




The LSG mists I used are the following

Don't eat golden snow

and this is the June Color Challenge





So I guess that's everything! I hope you like my page! Thanks for stopping by and for the warm comments! I really appreciate them! Thank you!
