The keys of the heart are precious

Καλημέρα σε όλους!

Έχω ένα "όχι-και-τόσο-καθαρό" layout σήμερα να σας δείξω!  Είναι για το 13 Arts και σχεδόν τα πάντα πάνω του είναι προϊόντα της Aida!!  Ο τίτλος είναι από το 2 Crafty Chipboard!
Του έδωσα και κατάλαβε από mixed media (αν και δεν έβαλα καθόλου σφραγίδες αυτή τη φορά)...

Ιδού



Λεπτομέρειες μπορείτε να δείτε στο μπλογκ του 13 Arts!

Να και μια λίστα με αυτά που χρησιμοποίησα

Fly away - Fabric Flower Black

(είπα ότι του έδωσα και κατάλαβε)

Αυτά από μένα! Ελπίζω να σας ενέπνευσε η σύνθεση μου να λερωθείτε με μπογιές και όμορφες μπιλίτσες!!! Χε χε!

Wonder

Hello everyone!
A new week has started and we are almost in the middle of August...
As the days go by, I admit that I look to the coming of September more and more...

But we are still in August and a new challenge at 13 Arts is revealed!
This month Agnieszka is the hostess and she gives a bright moodboard to play with.



The rules of the challenge:

1. Choose ONE of the 4 photos of the mood board as your inspiration and use its colour combo.
2. Use mists!
3. Upload your project by Aug 24th, 2014.

Now as you know I'm a lover of the colours of water, so I just had to pick the 4th picture, which contains Turquoise & Blue, as well as some purple and grey.

And this is what I came up with




Products used: 

Ok now this is a different kind of layout, it's lighter and without much layering.
The truth is that I don't like doing the same things every time in my pages (I find it too boring to see only one type of layout), so I always try to shift between different techniques and styles.

I hope you will join this 13 Arts challenge - a wonderful prize waits for the winner! ;)

Beauty is an attitude

Hello, hello!
I hope you are having a wonderful time and you are being busy creating
 beautiful things!
Today is my debut at 2 Crafty Chipboard as a Resident Guest Designer 
and I'm very excited about it!

So my page
"Beauty is an attitude"
(surely it is!)

features the GORGEOUS 2 Crafty 
Angie's Vines
Groovy Flowers
Word circles



As soon as I first touched the delicate Angie's Vines
I knew that these were meant for a soft and aethereal, feminine page.
I actually based the design of my layout on them!


I inked them with white chalk ink 
and then sprinkled them with glitter!
I combined them with ribbon, fiber and flowers 
on a textured background,
which was made with modelling paste and masks.



Now aren't these wonderful word circles PRECIOUS? 
I have used them already to title my pages! 
This one is painted with gesso and glittered (of course). 
In order to create some contrast, I placed it on the dark fuschia/purple flower.


I added the 2 Groovy Flowers at the corners of my big composition, 
after I gessoed and painted them pink and sprinkled them with glitter.  
You can see how these magical flowers 
have become one with the textured background!

I hope you like my page!

Destiny is calling

Hello everyone!

A new page today, made for 7 Dots Studio using the AWESOME Nature Walk Collection!






My page is about women and the fact that many times in life destiny calls us to move forward, but we choose to continue the life we lead. Perhaps this is due to the fear of the unknown or the lack of confidence to change even the wrong situations we are in.  The truth though is life passes by quickly, chances come and go unused and we may end up regretting things we didn't do.







I already mentioned that I have used "Nature Walk" for this page - stamps, die-cuts, papers, stickers. I usually don't mix up the collections, I find them absolutely complete, as far as colour & design are concerned!  I need nothing else!  To create my background I implemented the techniques I learned through Shirel's lesson at Pop&Colors seminar.  So you see lots of 13 Arts mists, modelling paste and gesso here!
