My-ride

 

 
I have ripped the papers again to create stripes/columns. I have painted the title letters with distress ink and stickles. I stamped and heat embossed the small tag using distress embossing powder “broken China”. The small yellow stripes that are used as a subtitle were cut out from a paper in the kit!
 
My stuff:
Sizzix dies
Dylusions
acrylic paint
stamp
stickles
embossing powder

Exciting inspiration from Vicky!

“Today” (sketch by Angela Star)
 
I have used 2 different papers as my base. I used a stencil and texture paste to make the circles. I have traced them around with a black colourpencil to define them and I did the same thing to the title too with a pen! I sprayed a lot of mist in one spot, using the kit’s yellow mist, and then upheld the paper to create the spill/blot.

” Hello you” (sketch by Angela Star)
I have ripped the paper apart to create 3 stripes/columns. To make the little white circles, I dabbed a mist cap into white acrylic paint and “stamped” onto the paper.

VICKY VARVADOUKA

Me_small

My name is Vicky Varvadouka, I am a happily married mum of two little girls and I work in a big company in Greece . Scrapbooking is my passion and a way to express my self! I love the feeling of freedom every time I scrap! It is an emotional outlet and a routine getaway! I love it because I leave a legacy and a piece of my self to my children!

I started making layouts in September 2010 and have been obsessed ever since. My kids are the main source of inspiration for my work and the primary subjects of my layouts. I am a person who likes to inspire others, create things that look beautiful to me, love to experiment with anything new and I always try to put a smile to those around me! My work has been published in scrapbooking magazines and I have been a designer for several challenge blogs, manufacturers and on line shops!

You can see more of my work  here: “My Embellished World” http://vartig12.blogspot.gr/

 

I am very excited to have Vicky designing for us this month, you will love her inspiration!

 

On-a-roll

“On a roll” (sketch by Emma Stafrace)

I started by adding texture paste using a stencil. I then stamp around randomly and splash some mist. I used a glass to trace the circles with a pencil and I used the sew easy tool to stitch. The letters were colored with pink glimmer glaze and stickles.
