ducklings

Hello everyone!
Today I'm guest designing for Kiev Skrapklub.


I made a tiny canvas with all the beautiful colors of the moodboard.
Blue is my favorite color, so I used a lot of it :)
This canvas is so small that I can use it as a card too! I found this cute photo on pinterest and decorated with some flowers, paper scraps, 2 Crafty chipboard pieces and LSG sprays and embossing powders.

This is the beautiful moodboard...

...and here are some details.

With this card I'm entering the Scrapbook Club Saratov challenge with this beautiful sketch:

Have a lovely Sunday!

last project for LSG

Hello dear friends!
Today I'm sharing my last project for Lindy's Stamp Gang.
 I had the best time in this amazing team and I'm really going to miss creating for LSG.
 Thank you very much Tracey and Sharon for everything <3

So, this is my third double page spread on my black journal. I used a pretty fun quote 'Life is short, eat dessert first' and tried to make the hole project to look like a candy.

make a wish!

Hello! 
Today I'm sharing my second project this month for 2Crafty.
It is a birthday tag I made for my 6 years old daughter's friend.
It's like a card, but as it can't open like a regular card, I call it a tag :)


I love using photos on every kind of project I create even it's a tag or a card.
To create this small and cute project, I used this pretty girlish photo, a small piece of paper, some flowers, gold thread, gesso, spays and these beautiful chipboard pieces!  
I really love the fact that you can built so beautiful clusters and layers with such a small amount of chipboard pieces. It's the best way to make a small piece of art with such few material!


All of my chipboard pieces on this tag have also all been heat embossed.
It creates such a nice thick & lush look to the chippies.

nostalgic feeling

Hello mixed media friends!
Here in Greece August is the third and last month of Summer. That means that my vacation on beach house will end in a few days and I'm getting in a melancholy mood. But, still the sun is shinning and the sea is amazing for swimming.
 So, today I'm hosting the Mixed Media Place and sharing a canvas about all these Summer things and emotions: a little bit of sea, memories and some paper boats I made by myself like those we used to make when we were children.


I glued on the canvas a paper from 7 Dots Soulmates collection and painted the rest of the canvas with white gesso. Then I glued the photo, the embellishments and the paper boats and stamped with several stamps here and there. I also wrote a small text I found on internet about 'what is a nostalgia'. After that, I used some blue and light brown colors to match the sea and the sand of the photo. The Lindy's Stamp Gang turquoise is the perfect color to represent the sea. I also used my favorite color ever Blue Grass from Primary Elements here in some spots to highlight them and as well gold and mediterranean silks. My final step always is to make some splashes with white gesso.

hello snails!

      Hello everyone!
Today I'm hosting the 2Crafty blog with a layout I created about nature.


I found this super cute photo on Pinterest and went straight to my desk to scrap it!
I also made a step by step video with all the process and I hope you'll enjoy it :)


For this page I used a lot of 2Crafty chipboard pieces, not only leaves and flowers, but also some leftovers which always love to use on my projects!
In order to alter the chipboard pieces I used LSG embossing powders. They are so easy to use and give to the chippies this amazing and awesome look!
  I really like how they turned out!

there is always a way

Hello everyone!
Today I'm sharing the second page of my black art journal I made for Lindy's Stamp Gang.
(here is the first page)


I prepared a photo tutorial, so you can see the steps and create your own.
Ι used two toned embossing powders. They are so unique as not only they are two toned, but they shimmer too!

Lindy’s Shimmering Embossed Resist Technique


1. Choose your favorite colors of embossing powders (I used Queen Sheba's SilverTwilight Bronze Slate and Madonna Robe Blue Gold)  and use them with stamps. After melting you will have this beautiful shiny result.



2. Apply a small amount gesso all over the page and wipe it off the embossed image with a baby wipe. The shimmer and shine will shine once again.


3. Use your favorite colors of sprays here and there (I used I'm Late, I'm Late SlateSteel ShimmerClam Bake BeigePirate's Plunder GoldScreamin' Banshee BlackFrozen Jack Frost).
If you get spray on top of the embossing, wipe it up. It will make sure your shimmering image shows through on your project and it's not altered by the spray.


4. Glue your preferred chipboard pieces and/or embellishments. 


5. Spray again with the color sprays in order to incorporate the chipboard pieces into the background. Add stamped images in the background with white ink for more texture.


6. Make some splashes with the gesso or the white color spray. I used them both.




7.  At this point, before the gesso or white spray dries, you can go ahead and wipe the embossed image off again with a damp baby wipe, to keep the shimmering images coming through, and  popping from your background.  You have the option to not wipe to mute the images a bit as well. It all depends on what look you prefer.Add your tittle and your project is ready!

I wanted to make something colorful and cute, so I used all the sprays of the set. I also used the embossing powders on the background and also to alter the chipboard pieces.
