Be Safe

Hi there..
I just love it when I can combine 2 challenges....As you all know this past week I was creating projects for Paper Issues Online Crop and this time around it was Mary-Ann's Grid Challenge....I was so happy to see that we could also use circles, because the Major Case File on C.S.I  had a sketch with circles on it.
I have had this photo of my son skiing  in my "To Scrap" pile for here is my page.
As you all know one one has to use  at least two items from the evidence list, and one prompt off the testimony list.
So my evidence is.....grid pattern, camera, circles and metal...I have string too.
For my testimony I used key words on my circles- my boy,champ. Thrilling and so thankful...the speedometer shows his love for speed and the little circle next to it says play, because he plays hard!...However I felt that I needed to write him a little message too...
" Michael I know that you love to have fun, but, please look after yourself, because you are precious to us. God bless you."
My circles were too busy so I journaled just below my title.
Before I log off.. I would like to thank all of the Ladies that set the challenges for the Paper Issues Online Crop...I managed to paricipate in 11 challenges.....enough already!
I am off to do some art journaling!
Keep well.


Thursday, March 26, 2015 we keep them???

Hi there again....
Twice in a day!! Yes I thought I should write this post, while everything is fresh on my mind...
At this stage you all know that I am busy with the Paper Issues On Line Crop, and I have been frantically scrapping.
Well over the week-end I opened a drawer of my Alex unit, and all of these paper strips popped out at me!! Yes, yes I keep every bit of pattern paper...we pay top  $ for paper here in Greece...shipping alone costs an arm and a leg!
I decided there and then that I would HAVE to challenge myself to use them for Danielle's Paper Pattern Play.....I left them aside and let idea stew for a couple of days...and yesterday the plan came together...

So I lightly stuck the strips onto will be posted below.. I machine stitched randomly...found a print of one of my paintings on my desk....and the photo was lying there too...I was keeping it aside for one of my Life Book 2014 lessons.
So, I decided to incorporate all of the goodies...that is how I to gather things off of my desk...I guess that is why I have a messy desk.

Anyway I gessoed the papers, dried them well and added color with a GaranD'Ache Neocolor,'YellowGreen' and some mist...then I masked the little crosses with a Grape Gelatto....
Added lace, my love...home-made flowers and some rub-ons as well as some embossed watercolor paper....and Voila.
Here are the videos.

That's all Zeffy

Sleep Safely.

Hi there again.
Three posts in a week....I told you that Paper Issues On Line Crop gave me a kick up the you know what....I have been scrapping like a lunatic!!
I combined challenges today, seeing that I used a big,long title...This was Michelles challenge on P.I.

You all know that I love doing challenges at CSI,,,,and seeing that I wanted to scrap my favourite photo of 2014....I decided that it was a perfect colour combo!

For evidence I have misting, animals,some lace,and a long title. My testimony is my journaling directly and the page and it starts with "Then she relaxes and all that energy is at rest.Even at rest she gives me great comfort.To cuddle and hold her while she sleeps gives me great comfort and immense joy.GOD BLESS HER..."

Stay Rad

Hi Again.....

I told you I was on a roll...
Here is a L.O. that I completed this week-end when I cropped with friends on the island of Aegina...
this page was totally inspired by the moodboard on Scrap Around The World and it was also my entry for Paper Issues On Line Crop.The challenge here was to add stitching to our page.

I used Crate Paper "Boys Rule" for this page....I hand stitched with string down the edge of my photo. I also machine stitched around my page and over my embellishments...this photo was taken in May of 2013......
We were hosted at our friend Aleka at her shop in Aegina...she sells hand-made items anything from altered antique furniture,to hand made jewellary  and scrapbooking was taken by our Guru,Eleni Gratsias.
That is it for now.....lots more to do today...I am all alone and having an Alpha Scrapbooking Day ....woopee!

yes scrapbooking again...

Hi there,,,
I want to thank Paper Issues for the kick-start that their On-Line Challenge Crop gave me....I have made a ton of pages these couple of days...ok not a ton but at least 6 projects....I do not have much time to show them all to you today, here is the one I finished last night.The challenge was to alter a cut-file.

I used a very old Prima Paper...I painted and decorated the heart cut file from Wilna Furstenberg I played with paint and wrote and cut the word love...I loved the effect that the acetate flowes gave the page...
will be back with more soon...

Hi there...

Hi There, everybody.
I have been a terrible Blogger.....I know, I know!
Life has become so fast, and time just seems to run away! So sorry.

I have however been doing some on-line classes and my most recent craze is watching Wilna Furstenberg's videos I have also been following some of her classes...real value for money.
The L.O. below has been inspired by Color Theory Workshop By Wilna....on Studio Calico

Today I got a kick-start in actually sitting down and scrapbooking...nothing that some adrenalin to get one going...Paper Issues has An On-Line Crop running this week-end.

This is for Kelly's Design Team Challenge , and we were to scrap ourselves.......I was inspired by Wilna's warm colours lesson...the cut files are Wilna's beautiful designs....
I scrapped a photo that was taken especially for me to use as a profile photo when I set up my blog in the late summer of 2009.....scrapbooking has given me so much happiness!
Hopefully I will be back on Monday with more L.O.s as I am going to Aegina with my friends to an all day crop.....need to pack, My target is 3 pages !
Have a good week-end.
Lots of love.
