Top 5 at SASPC Special Winter Challenge

Hello everyone!

Just wanted to share some lovely news today.

I made it to Top 5 at SASCP Winter Special Challenge, with my Mechanical Junk Tree! Thank you so much for the honor!!!

Also big congratulations to all the participants, because all the projects were really amazing!!!

If you missed my post on Dec 31st, come to my youtube channel to see how I put together my tree by using pieces of driftwood I had found last summer, during our family vacation in Argalasti, South Pelion, Greece!

 The driftwood is from a beach called “Potistika” near the village.

It’s so amazing how these pieces of wood that still smelled summer, found their place into a Christmas project!

That’s why I love Mixed Media Art!

Still have many things to share, but I have to wait a few more days…. So stay tuned!

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Until next time,

Be Brave, Be who You Want to Be!

Patchwork Ornaments for Scraps N Pieces - Video Tutorial

Hello everyone!

Wish you all a nice week!

Christmas is coming! Everything is almost ready for the Holly Days, and I hope you will all spend these days with your loved ones, with joy and happiness!!!

By now, we’ve done most of our preparations. Wrapped our gifts and wrote our cards. Made our ornaments, decorated the Christmas tree and… we are left with a bunch of scraps from our projects. Pieces of paper and embellishments that we’re going to hide away, in a bag or a box, until we completely forget about them.

Or maybe not! This year, let’s make it different!

Today, I'm on Scraps N Pieces-The Blog, with a video tutorial.
See how you can make Patchwork Ornaments, by using all your leftovers!

Mini Christmas Wreaths

Hello everyone!

Evening post, for the first time! But couldn’t resist!

My little daughter asked me to buy her some styrofoam wreath bases a few days ago. Today she wanted to put them on the Christmas Tree! LOL
I really had to do something with them!

I took a piece of fabric I had for ages, but really hated its grey color, so I had put it away… Cut about 2”wide stripes and wrapped them around the wreaths.

Then I took some hemp rope from Canvas Corp and wrapped it over the fabric.

Misted the fabric with water and then spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists “Black Jerry” and “Verdigris” and Matt Mist “Peoney”. Next, I applied some snow paste all around the wreaths.
