Today we have another super Guest Designer here at Berry71Bleu and today is the turn of amazingly talented Athanasia Papantoniou.
Hello! My name is Athanasia and I'm very happy to be here with you today! I live in Greece, I am a music teacher in elementary school and in my spare time, when I am not playing the piano, I love making handicrafts, felting, altering things and of course scrapbooking. I like scrapbooking because it combines such a vast deposit of media types not only with memories of my life and my family, but also with emotions and ideas whenever I have in my head and want desperately to express! Inspiration always derives from the photograph I use and the open choice of combination of mixed media techniques. I love to use gesso, mists and stamps! Through scraping I think I have found the best way to express myself and exploit my spare time in the best way.
Hello dear friends! It is really a great honor being here as a guest designer today!
I have to admit that I fell in love with this amazing moodboard. I got inspired not only by the neutral earth colors but also by the motherhood theme which touched me deeply as being a mum of two children is the most important thing in my life.
For this project I used three shades of Lindy's Gang Stamp sprays and embossing powders (on the chipboard pieces): grey, beige and gold to match the color combo of the photo and the moodboard. I also used black watercolor on some spots to create a little bit of contrast. I chose only a few embellishments because I wanted to focus on the photo and the background, which is created with stamps, a stencil and the above colors. The paper, sticker and chipboard I used are from 7 Dots Studio 'Soulmates' collection.
This page is incredibly special, meaningful and so beautiful, in every way! ;-)
Thanks so much Athanasia for inspiring us with this stunning page! ;-)
Here's one last look at this months mood board.
