From athens, greece here is my 1st entry for the 1 round. Here are the details of my LO:
Paper used: 7 dotts Domestic goddess Brick mask Paper soft color from viva ( walnut brown ) Frantage aged scarlet embossing enamel (spread over the page and on the flowers) Frantage mica red fragments Umwow arrows Wooden veneer black lace Gesso Acrylic glaze ( cinnamon brown) Hessian Chipboard of wycinanka Journaling around the edges of the double page.
As they were two different kind of papers i cut them in half diagonal and stuck them together. Pictures are from around in my area Agios Dimitrios in Athens, Greece.
Here is my layout for the challenge. I used photos of when the snow finally came to our house and with it came lots of excitement. I really enjoyed this creating this and having some fun with paints. The challenge to add at least 50 words of journal was fantastic as it is something that I don't do often, it is usually hidden on the back.
I managed to get my layout done today, I would have liked to add more embellishments but time was not on my side! I haven't scrapped for a couple of years so I really enjoyed myself today. Background paper is a few years old, I think from Cosmo Cricket. I made the corrugated 'tin' from a torn cardboard box, painted with mixed acrylic paint and sand to add texture to look like rust. The title is from painted Thickers stickers on top of sacking material and the eggs are made from polystyrene shapes. Flowers are from Prima a few years ago, camera film is Tim holts and the round embellishments are old K&Co

Really in the nick of time... but this is my take on the first challenge.
I live in the most populated area of Athens Greece, and I think it is much prettier at night, so, my photographs, document a walk down to a pedestrian street lined with cafeterias and restaurants. I used Echo Park "Here and now" collection. I stenciled with gesso over two areas of my LO to add some texture, and then only some stamping and empellishments were used. Hope you like it, and thank you for looking!!!
