Spread the hope - for Breast Cancer Awareness

Hello dear friends!
October is the month of Breast Cancer Awareness, so I wanted to make a project for this sensitive and so important issue. Being healthy is the most significant value in our lives, as well being strong, having courage and being positive whenever difficulties enter our lives. 

So, I created a layout for ColouArte with a step by step Video. 
I hope you will enjoy watching the process :)

beauty in a frame

Μπήκε στα ροζ ο Οκτώβριος για το Scraps N Pieces με θέμα υπέροχο, λαμπερό και πολύ...ροζ. Υπέυθυνη για όλα αυτά η αγαπημένη scrapσυναδέλφισα Valia Katzaki που λατρεύει το ροζ και ό,τι έχει να κάνει με στρας :)
H δική μου σύνθεση είναι ένα πολύ μικρό layout 15x18 εκ. για μια κορνίζα που είχα, 
την οποία και έβαψα με μάυρο gesso.

The sound of silence

Hello dear friends!
Today I'm sharing my second project for this month I created for  2Crafty Chipboard blog.

'The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between' - W.A.Mozart
This is an amazing quote I always have in mind when I'm playing the piano.
As a musician I love making projects about music, so I decided to make one with this favorite quote of mine. 

For my page I used the word "love" as the main title, which I cut from the love border.
I really like the calligraphy style of it and I think it has the perfect size for the tittle.
I altered it with black embossing powder and placed it vertically to much the whole vertically flow of the page.

 I also used some pieces from the 6x6 'Moroccan Panel' in order to give texture and interest to the background. I absolutely love this design. It matches with any kind of style and it is very easy to cut it in pieces and use them on your projects. I used black and white gesso and silks to alter them.

This big key from the 'Vintage Keys' set was the perfect embellishment to complete my composition, because it represents the key of perfection in what has to do with music.
I painted it with African Jade silk, my favorite color, and a little bit of black and white gesso.
