Our Trees

Hi there.
Its Friday and August is rolling to a close, enjoy the last days of vacations.
I did a challenge at The Studio website,we had to copy a book cover and scrap an inanimate object...I don't think trees are inanimate!! But anyway its done now.
I hated the fire, I love trees. I had a photo of the Acropolis, taken at such an odd angle so as to photograph the tree too, so I decided to scrap that.
I used a plain orange cardstock.I expressed my anger with black,red and some yellow paint. I cut  flames out of magazine papers, some Basic Grey, Fusion and Well Worn and the daisy paper is from a Canon download.I tried to liven up the fire with some pigment inks from Brilliance, Cosmic Copper and Galaxy Gold.. I stamped the trees, to give L.O. a green touch.

Hope you like .
GO PLANT A TREE...I am Zeffy and I re-use and recycle....bye.

These are some pictures of the completed FUN album,that I made to donate to my friend Helen for her Christmas Bazaar.
Hello there...I am working on this blog and ironing out some of the many problems...getting there,technology does not come easy to me!
Anyway I cleaned and scrubbed my home yesterday, got rid of all the ash off my balcony and windows,they will stay clean until the next gust of wind blows more ash our way.....that is how it will go.Our green lungs have been burned!! Acres and acres of wasteland........
I am zeffy and one of the many things that I love are trees beautiful old trees, thats why I was so sad this week-end.
Another thing that I love is scrapbooking and seeing that my balcony was clean I took some photos this morning .As you can see I now have a profile picture . During the fires on Sunday whilst watching T.V. I made my Art Journal, I am not good at art but I will try and express myself through the medium.
I used two pads of Aquarelle A5 art paper,cut off the eges,bound then with dental floss.For the front and back covers I used the cardstock from the backs of the art pads, which I then covered with a big sheet of paper from my decoupage stash an Australian paper Finmark"posters' love the Art Deco look.

Ash Sunday

The Fires are still burning! North Eastern Attica is ablaze.....a tragic situation for a city that needs oxygen.....Anyway I was planning to photograph some of my projects this morning ,but my balcony is covered in ash, even though I live 25+kilometres away from the fires,so I guess it will have to wait till the fires stop and I can give said balcony a good wash!


I am connected!

Hi there everybody,I am very happy because this blog is starting to look like something!!I may even publish it tonight......Even though it is not perfect.I have been busy with various things these past 4 weeks. It is summer in Greece,actually almost the end of summer.

Anyway we were away a lot, but I did take some scrapping things with me and made one or two things. will photograph them tomorrow and post them later.

I will post some cards that I made in June, I am a new hand at card making these are my first couple of cards made for friends that were visiting and had birthdays whilst in Athens.

Last night I was surfing the net and came across a blog called http://Teesha's circus I really loved her work and was very inspired to star an art journal,even though my drawing skills are mediocre. So now my dining room table is full of paper because I have decided to bind my very own hand made journal.will post pictures soon.
