Αναμονή

Ο μπέμπης δε λέει  να εμφανιστεί... Αύριο είναι η τελική ημερομηνία και ακόμα τίποτα. 
Έτσι είπα και εγω να τελιώσω οτι εκκρεμότητες είχα, να ζωγραφίσω, μιας και ποιος ξέρει πόσα χρόνια θα ξαναπεράσουν πριν ξαναπιάσω πινέλο στα χέρια, να αλλάξω τη διακόσμηση στο σπίτι και να κάνω και κανα layout...
 Και φυσικά να σας αποχαιρετήσω, για λίγο καιρό τουλάχιστον με μια τελευταία ανάρτηση.



οι πίνακες είναι κυρίως αντίγραφα

έναστρη νύχτα του van Gogh


Λύτρας, το παιδί με το ψάθινο καπέλο
Μονέ,  νούφαρα

επίσης έφτιαξα αυτή την απλή κορνίζα απο τις μικρες κορνίζες Ram του ΙΚΕΑ, που έβαψα μαύρες

 και μια ακομα ιδέα με κορνίζες απο το Ικεα στις οποίες έβαλα άμμο και κοχύλια που φέραμε, σαν αναμνηστικά απο τα ταξίδια μας



τέλος φτιάξαμε πολλές κατασκευές με τα παιδια, αεροπλάνα, καράβια κ.α

Έτσι λοιπόν σας αποχαιρετώ...
για λίγο....

decoration

Have you ever pass by an exhibition stand and thought  " that would be perfect for my things"... All you have to do is keep your eyes open... Usually the promotion stands from the super markets, pharmacies and shops sooner or later they end up at the recycle bin. This year i got lucky twice, because i found this beautiful stands that i used them for displaying my kids toys. I love them, they are perfect for the purpose and FREE!


21.2.11

I love.....

 I had an awful week, since we were sick with a virus and i still haven t recover, but the 20ths challenge of GET CREATIVE is here!! 
The challenge is to scrap a layout about the things you love...the twist is it's not allowed to be about people!!!  
I made two layouts for this challenge. The first one is about my love for the sea, but at the beginning it looked more like a painting than a scrapbook, as my friend Irini pointed
 So i added fotos and more journaling
i draw the mermaid and the girl and scannered them and made the strips also.
 

And the second one is about my love for CHOCOLATE!!! I just can t live without  chocolate...
