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.

In order to achieve the candy look I used the August 2015 Limited Edition Mega Set. This month's pallet is so colorful and bright and they inspired me to create this project. 

After gluing a decorative tape with all these candy cakes and I applied gesso all over the page with a round sponge. Then I used all the embossing powders of the set with several stamps to create beautiful texture on the background.  I love how the different colors of the embossing powders blend together and create this awesome effect! I also used the embossing powders on the chipboard arrows.

The next step was to use the sprays. I sprayed all the colors here and there on the page and also made some splashes with them. Then I glued the sentence and the chipboard pieces and made some doodling all around the pages with a permanent pen.

As a final toutch I made some splashes with gesso. It looks like candy cream. don't you think?

I hope you enjoyed my sweet candy-project :)
Have a lovely crafty day!

make a wish!

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.

I hope you got some summery inspiration from my project.
Have a lovely sunny day!
