A bowl of berries for 13 Arts

Hello everyone!


Today the day is all blue!  Well, at least what I created for 13 Arts is!  
It's more mixed-media styled than my usual ones, mainly because I couldn't resist at the amazing mists Ayeeda has and secondly, I had to try something different, thanks to the my constant need of change and experimenting.
With this one, I actually wanted to see how much fluid a simple cardstock can withhold and withstand.  

See for yourselves




Believe me, it takes a lot of fluids to create such a page!
And the 13 arts Frozen Days paper passed the test!

A very distinct element of the my project are the 2 Crafty Funky Heart Swirls that are adorning it.
I gessoed and misted them first and after that, I blended them with the rest of my embellishments.  I sprinkled them with glitter, for more sparkle!

More details of how I created this layout you can find at the 13 Arts blog!


I hope you liked my page!

Stop thinking, start doing

Καλημέρα!  Οι τελευταίες μέρες είναι σχετικά ζεστές εδώ στο Ηράκλειο και, ενώ αρνούμαι να πιστέψω ότι τέλειωσε ο χειμώνας ήδη, προσπαθώ να τις απολαύσω.  Κυρίως θέλω να απολαύσω τη δυνατότητα να πας για ένα περίπατο ή βόλτα στα μαγαζιά, να βγεις και να συναντήσεις φίλους. Παράλληλα προσπαθώ να αγνοήσω τα προβλήματα που ο ζεστός νοτιάς φέρνει στη ζωή μου (γενικότερη εγρήγορση στη δουλειά, πονοκέφαλο, νευρικότητα και όλα τα παρελκόμενα) και να επικεντρωθώ στα όμορφα πράγματα που ανέφερα παραπάνω.  Δηλαδή στις πολύτιμες, μικρές και ευχάριστες λεπτομέρειες της ζωής.  

Αυτό είναι και το θέμα της πρόκλησης Ιανουαρίου του 7 Dots Studio:

"Appreciating the little things in life"

The inspirational circle of the challenge, made with sneak peaks of the DT's interpretations





***Το όμορφο blog I love scrap έχει ως πρόκληση "the use of threads as the latest trend" και μιας και βάζω κλωστές σχεδόν πάντα στα layouts μου, όταν δημιουργούσα, έφτιαξα τη σελίδα μου και με αυτά τα κριτήρια!  Καιρό έχω να πάρω μέρος σε πρόκληση!***





Χρησιμοποίησα δύο βασικά πράγματα 

and small embellishments,.. 
such as black thread, metal wire, washi tape, buttons, glitter and a few flowers

Τα mists είναι φυσικά 13 Arts!!


Λοιπόν αυτά προς το παρόν από μένα. Ευχαριστώ πολύ για την επίσκεψη και ελπίζω να δω έργα σας για την πρόκληση στο μπλογκ  του 7 Dots Studio!  Καλημέρα!

Balance is the key - ScrapAroundtheWorld Guest Designer with 7 Dots

Hello people!
Today the 7 Dots Studio DT family (oh yes, we are a big, happy family!) is honoured to be guest designing for Scrap Around the World - thank you so much, Helen Tilbury, for the invitation!

I personally am very happy because either as a contestant or as a guest designer with the DTs I'm part of, I have the opportunity to stretch my legs with the challenges that this awesome blog provides.

So the January moodboard is GORGEOUS, but almost everyone knows that already, as it was revealed on New Year's Day.


See it again here





Very soft colours, delicate objects and a sense of elegance (my keyword/target when I create)
I just love it!

So this is my take on it
with the 7 Dots Studio Soulmates Collection - Maybe today paper for my background
13 arts  media OF COURSE are like a magical glue that puts everything together!





I was obviously inspired by the soft colour combination, I used a photo of keys and connected the quote of the moodboard with the keys (not literally, of course).  As I have said, I always want to convey a message with my pages and so I have done here.




Can you see the 2 Crafty Chipboard Elements that are tucked under the photo and beneath the cluster of flowers?  They were an essential part of building these clusters, as they are so elegant!  I couldn't omit them!!

So if you are inspired by the beautiful moodboard and the wonderful creations of the Design Team,
take a look at the rules and play!
