Hello there, to all of you, crafters!!!!Since I have returned to work, I rarely create,cause of my full daily program...BUT!!!!Yesterday was a very creative Sunday....I had seen some interesting challenges , I wanted to take part in ,so I spent my night creating....With my page today , I 'll take part in three challenges...The first is at Once Upon A Sketch , with the following sketch and the journaling theme : Inspiration....

For me , inspiration comes when my family is well ,my kids,my hubby..When we have sweet moments.....These little everyday moments are my inspiration....I try to enjoy every second with them and every time we laugh, gives me the opportunity to make sweet memories for the future.....

The second challenge I take part in , is the Scrap Africa Challenge ,tag challenge....We must use at least 2 tags on our project...So as you can see , I used four of them....

And the third challenge I play at , is Frosted Design challenge - White Space....

Today I "ll show you a LO I created last Sunday at the crop ,that SNP girls organised!!!! We were so many Greek crazy ladies with the same love for creating,and had a great time together!!!!The most important was that we had the opportunity to work with the brand new papers of 7 Dots Studio and Thoughts Keepper Collection!(I loved them!!!!)

Guest Designer στο Scraps 'N Pieces

Σήμερα έχω ιδιαίτερη χαρά ,καθώς ειμαι καλεσμένη της φοβερής ομάδας του Scraps'N Pieces challenge blog για το μηνα Αύγουστο! Προγραμματισμένη ανάρτηση διαβάζετε,αφου αυτήν την ώρα λογικά απολαμβάνω τις διακοπούλες μου με τα κοριτσάκια μου, και η προκληση του μήνα Αυγούστου έχει άμεση σχέση με ταξιδάκια...Οπότε είμαστε κυριολεκτικά μέσα στο κλίμα ,όπως καταλαβαίνετε!

Η φωτογραφία έμπνευσης , λοιπόν , η παρακάτω!


Βλέποντάς τη ,μου ρθε αμέσως στο μυαλό το τελευταιο μας ταξίδι στο Βερολίνο...Και μάλιστα μια συγκεκριμένη φωτογραφία που είχα βγάλει εν ώρα πτησης..Σας έχω πει ποσο φοβάμαι τα αεροπλάνα ; Πολύ...Αλλά η αγάπη μου για τα ταξίδια ξεπερνα το φόβο μου και πλέον έχω αρχίσει και τολμώ να κοιτάζω και έξω από το παραθυράκι...Αυτο που έβλεπα κατα την πτηση ,λοιπον, αυτο ήθελα να σκραπάρω...Η σελίδα ,που δημιούργησα,ειναι αυτη...


Αρχικά πειραματιζόμουν με τα καινουρια μου Distress Stains ,τα οποια πρωτη φορά χρησιμοποιουσα...¨αγαπώ τα splashes αλλά δεν έχω καταφέρει να φτιάξω ποτε,οποτε τωρα ηταν η ευκαιρία...Το backround εντελως τυχαιο...Χρησιμοποίησα και rub-ons σποραδικά στο χαρτί μου και άρχισα να φτιάχνω layers από χαρτια... Επειδή μου αρέσει να ανακυκλώνω τα υλικά μου,χρησιμοποίησα και το boarding pass μου,για να είναι περισσότερο ταξιδιάρικη η σελίδα μου...Πολλά scraps,κομμάτια σελίδων βιβλίου,ελάχιστα διακοσμήτικά,εκ των οποίων το ένα ειναι καπάκι από μπυρα με ένα flair μεσα,κλωστη,κυριολεκτικά ανακυκλώνουμε στο scrapbooking , οπως βλέπετε!








Αυτή ήταν η σύνθεσή μου για σήμερα!!!Ελπίζω να σας άρεσε και να βοήθησα να εμπνευστείτε!!!!
Περάστε απο το Scraps 'N Pieces να δείτε τι ομορφιές έφτιαξε η ομάδα των κοριτσιών για την πρόκληση και να πάρετε ιδέες!!!Αυτά από εμένα για σήμερα !
Σας φιλώ!
Χριστίνα!

A blog Hop with a difference!

Hello bloggers and crafters!
Today is my turn to introduce myself , as I take part in a blog hop with a difference!!!It's not a usual blog hop ,cause this time I must tell a few words about myself and some of my favourite crafters..
You are here from Athanasia's blog ...Athanasia is a super talented Greek girl ,who makes beautiful pages full of colours and stamps,that catch your eye,and stunning art-journaling pages...Her style is special so you have to visit her blog to see her awesome work!
Now,it's time for answering some questions about myself,as a part of the blog hop...

                                            What am I working on right now? 

These days are difficult days for me ,cause I work on a lot of projects...I am working on some mini albums ,photo albums and of course on Layouts for the current DT I am on.I am on Sketchabilities challenge blog so the last project i worked on was the LO for the next challenge...Here is a sneek peek of my page...  




                                 How long does it take to create a project?

It depends on the mood of the day...I usually need some "days" to create,cause i rarely concentrate on my project for more than two hours a day...I 'm a mother of two baby girls so it's really difficult for me to stay on my craft room alone and without noise.Anyway, I think that for a project,like a mixed media page,I need some hours to end up, usually three or four hours .
                                               
                             What are my fave things I Love to create with at the moment?
     
Lately I am  totally addicted to mediums ,gesso, and mists ,paints...Generally everything that can make my hands dirty...You can see some dirty examples on my mixed media LO's...


                                               How does my creative process work?

I don't follow a standard way to create my project...I often find my picture first and then I find my embellies I want to use(but there were some times that I chose my picture ,after I had made my backround).Then I start making my backround,and I finally decorate my page...My embelishments sometimes come from my house,my kitchen or everywhere I see something and feel that suits on my page... 


                                                       How do I become inspired?

Most of the times I scrap about my girls and my family in general.My girls are often my inspiration..But lately I also scrap about my friends,or things that make me happy...
                                                       What is my signature style?
I don't think I have a current style...I like trying new techniques and styles but I always I have in mind that i want my photo be the central part of my page and not been hidden by the embelishments...The most of my pages are made with mixed media techniques , but lately I love "clean and simple" style and I try this when I am in a mood...
You can see here some of my mixed media pages..


And some CAS pages...
