Awareness - Mixed Media Layout

Hello everyone!

Today I would like to present you one more project with which I’m entering the Annual Prima DTCall.  #PrimaDTCall

This time I drew my inspiration from some very popular female portraits.

As you all know, they were created by the famous and very talented artist Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988). He found the face of operatic soprano Lina Cavalieri, in a 19th-century magazine, and created over 500 variations of her face!

By looking at them, I realized that combining some of the portraits together, one can create a whole story.

That is how I created this mixed media layout.

It measures 12” x 12” and I used a piece of design paper from my stash to make it.

Modern Deity

Hello everyone!

Today I would like to share with you a new project I created for my participation to Prima Design Team Call. #PrimaDTCall

As a Greek, I am always fascinated by my country’s ancient history and civilization and very often I draw my inspiration from myths about ancient gods and heroes.

I had this curvy glass bottle in my kitchen, for so long, that I couldn’t even remember where I had found it. Then, one day I realized that its shape reminded me of the Minoan snake goddess.

This magnificent figurine was found in the palace of Knossos by the British archaeologist Arthur Evans. It is being displayed at the Archeological Museum of Herakleion, Crete.

I started wondering how a contemporary goddess would look like, what she would symbolize, what kind of story she would tell to the future generations about our time.

This is how I imagined her to be and I really hope you like it!

Travel Album - Prima French Riviera Collection

Hello everyone!

I’m back with another project for the Annual Prima Design Team Call. #PrimaDTCall

For this project I used the 12x12 Collection Kit-French Riviera by Prima. Such a beautiful collection! I was so inspired by the designs and colors.
The idea of creating a vintage-style travel album immediately came to me.

A cute little booklet with large and small pockets, journaling cards and space for photos, to fill with memories from an exciting journey!

Altered Clock Case

Hello everyone!

For the next few days I am going to share with you some projects I created for my participation to the Annual Prima Design Team Call. #PrimaDTCall 

Summer is such an inspiring season and of course I’m always dreaming of discovering vintage treasures that are washed ashore on a deserted beach!

That is how I came up with the idea of turning an empty clock case  - I used the mechanism on another project – to a vintage porthole.

Mr and Mrs Goldfish

Hello everyone!

Since my blog is only a few months old, it’s only natural that along with my new art pieces, I also upload some projects I finished a while back.

Mr and Mrs Goldfish is one of my favorites!

The Birdies - A Family Affair

Hello everyone,

I wanted to share with you an Art Journal spread I did a while ago, in one of our AJ lessons at Scraps n Pieces studio with my amazing teacher Myrto Panayiotopoulou.

It measures 18” x 11 1/2 “.
