All you need is love


One more mixed media page for 7 Dots studio Favourite quote challenge .
I love all the quotes about love. So I made this mixed media page with a loooot of texture with quotes about love. I used a lot of my stash, some Chipboard leftovers,  tulle ,13 arts pastes and black gesso for my backround and painted with Dylusions mists and Americana paints. I have also used some elements from a broken alarm clock to give more interest . I tried to give a rust effect on these elements by painting with several colours like purple and yellow.
At the end I decorated with stickers and elements from Vernon Azul collection.
All you need is love....
Hope you like it!

Beautiful smile...

A story behind this photo. A woman that didn't live her life. A woman that was always smiling.  That wanted to make a new family, a new life , but she didn't manage to do it. She was 27 when she got married with the love of her life. This photo was taken at 1977. She was so happy.... But.... she didn't know what to expect from her new "family" .
This woman was my mom's youngest sister . At 1978 was murdered by her mother in law. She was pregnant. .. She wanted to have a family. She wanted to keep her boy in her hands. But she didn't.  She was a teacher.  Her name ...Christina.  Like me.

Now you know the story of this picture. And why I am named Christina. That 's because of this woman.








With my page I m playing with More than words challenge ...

Hope you like my page.
That s from me today.
Kisses

Summertime. ..

Hello there to all of you!  It 's time for a challenge here in Scraps N Pieces (with a little delay ) and we have a summer turquoise moodboard for you to play and be free to make whatever project you want and interpret the way you like.
This challenge is open for two months July and  August and we hope you to find some time to play with us.
I made an art journal spread-I looooove my art journal - and I used a photo of my Summer of 2014  vacations , a favourite photo of mine.
Some of the details. ....


And our moodboard of our Summer challenge at SNP...
 With this art journal spread I will also play with Scrapki-wyzwaniowo challenge - Sunlight theme. Here in Greece sun 's always bright but it remindsme of summer memories. Summer means sun here in Greece.
I will also participate in the challenge of Crafty Life challenge Summer theme . 
I will also play with the July challenge of 7 Dots studio. -Favourite quote. ..One of my favourites is :"Live the life you imagined" ... Yes we should live our lives as we have imagined. ... Every day... Every time ....
