"On the top" Guest DT for Scrapiniec!

Hello dear crafters!

Once again, I focused on the colors of my photo in order to create the background so I used khaki, blue and pink. I glued small pieces of paper together, covered with gesso, then I applied some modeling paste using a stencil and sprayed with water and mists. The chipboard pieces were painted with distress inks and gelatos. Thanks for looking, have a nice day!!

"Our time together"

Hello my dear friends!

This is a photo of my girls playing with the snow and having fun at my husband's village!
I have played with 13@rts products, Green Tara flowers and lace and some Scrapmatts chipboard! You can see a lot of stamping too using stamps from Prima, Glitz and Kaisercraft!

I am participating in the lovely mood board challenge in SATW!

"Turkey" for Scrapiniec!

Hello dear crafters,

Today I am sharing with you a page I made to remember our lovely time in Istanbul. I have used warm colors in order to match the atmosphere of the city! The chipboard pieces were mainly painted with gelatos and gold glitter. For the background, I glued some pieces of chipboard, covered them with gesso and then I sprayed with water and several mists. Some stamping as well and then I created my cluster using also some rope and burlap to give texture!

This layout was made for Scrapiniec as I am their guest designer and I am also participating in "Words & paintery" for the very inspiriring color combo! 



Thanks for looking! Have a nice day!

"Dreamer" for Scrapiniec

Hello dear friends!!
 I would like to share with you today a layout I made featuring my older daughter "Nefeli". She has a great look on her face so it was a perfect match with the title "Dreamer". The tip for this page is to use two different papers glued together and in the middle, to place some lace in order to give texture, depth and a shabby chic look!! 

With this layout I participate in two challenges. ARTastic for the use of flowers (that;s easy for me lol) and Scrapki for using leaves.

I must apologize for the dark photos but they were taken mid-week when I get home from work late so there is not enough light :( ....

A fairy Canvas for Scrapiniec!

Hello dear friends!

For today's post I have created a canvas. I like to play around and experiment. I covered all the canvas with gesso, Second step was to add some texture using a stencil and modeling paste. I sprayed 4 different shades of green, some red and orange and a lot of water to mix them up! Then I stamped randomly and built my cluster. In the end I used some gold glitter to give some shine here and there. The chipboard pieces were painted gold and then they were distressed with some Ranger distress inks. I am sorry for the dark photos but Autumn has finally reached my country :P 
Have a nice creative weekend!!xo

"Dare" - a layout for Scrapiniec!

Hello dear friends!

I am sharing my new layout made for Scrapiniec! The title of this layout is "Dare"! Don't be afraid to try new things, new mediums, new techniques, play with colors and get dirty! It is a surprisingly liberating feeling! This is what I did in this layout! I partially covered my paper with gesso, then added modeling paste using a stencil. Next move is to start spraying your mists consecutively with water! If you are not happy with the result, you can add color using a brush onto the concrete points that you wish or remove paint by covering with gesso. Next step is random stamping (something I cannot live without)! Find pieces of paper (from your scraps) and embellies that match the colors and build your cluster. In order to give a lot of depth, use pieces of thick chipboard to glue your papers together! This way you have big gaps in between to tack in your bits and pieces ;). A small tip for your chip embellies, I always cover them either with stickles or glossy accents or I heat emboss them in order to make them stand out!
Greetings from hot Greece!! Still 25 degrees!! Can you believe it?? LOL!!!! 

However, I am trying to get into the Fall spirit so I combined the theme of Fall from scrapki-wyzwaniowo with the colors from the beautiful moodboard of scrap Africa!!!

And here is the result!!

"Friends forever"

Hello dear friends!!

This is a project I created as a guest designer at Scrapiniec! A scrapbooking layout for me is all about the memories. It is meaningless to use an artistic photo as I want to create albums for each of my children and when they look at them to be able to say..."Oh, remember this/when/where" and not just say "Nice piece of art". It is very easy to choose an artistic photo from the internet to match your papers perfectly but it is difficult to use your own photos, especially when they have many colors! So, In this case I decided to create my own background!!!

I was inspired by this amazing mood board over at "Scrap around the world". It is sooo me!!

I am also participating in "Crafty life challenges and "I am roses" (I have tones of their flowers and leaves, here I used roses!!) as anything goes!!

And this is my layout!! One of my favorites!!

"Friends forever"

1. Cover a white cardstock with a gel medium
2. Paint stripes of different colors using gelatos
3. Spray the whole paper with water and dry out using a heat gun
4. Apply another layer of gel medium
5. Grab your favorite stencil, cover with versamark and use white embossing powder
6. Final step is stamping, splashing and feel free to use any embellishments you like!!

And many close ups 'cause there are many details:

Thanks for visiting!!
Have a nice weekend!!
