Η Μπισκοτοκαρτούλα

Μια φορά κι έναν καιρό ήταν μία χριστουγεννιάτικη σφραγίδα, που καρτερικά στο σακουλάκι της περίμενε, μα της φαινότανε πως ήτανε μέσα σε παγίδα!
Της ήρθε μία μέρα να σφραγιστεί όχι κλασικά με μελάνι σε χαρτί, αλλά σε πηλό, γιατί ήθελε και να κάνει κάτι τρελό!

Έτσι κι έγινε, και φτιάχτηκε ένα τετράγωνο μπισκοτάκι με σκαλιστή εικόνα και ευχούλα, που, όμως, δε φαινόταν και τόσο καλά, η καημενούλα!
Αφού το μπισκοτάκι στέγνωσε, λευκή σκόνη απάνω στο σκάλισμα έπεσε, και μετά ζεστάθηκε, μα έγινε μπιλίτσες και δε στάθηκε!
Με λευκό ακρυλικό παστώθηκε και απαλά σκουπίστηκε, κι έτσι η εικονίτσα φανερώθηκε, και κατόπιν βερνικώθηκε!


Το ειδικό χαρτάκι στο μηχάνημα μπήκε, και μέσα στο μπιμπίκι, από την άλλη εβγήκε!
Με γυαλοχαρτάκι ετρίφτηκε, και το μπιμπικάκι, χιονάκι εγίνηκε!
Στο μηχάνημα ξαναμπήκε, και γύρω γύρω κατσαρό από την άλλη ξαναβγήκε!


Στις γωνιές τα brands χάλκινα κάποτε ήταν, μα με σκόνη και ζεστασιά άσπρα - αντικέ εγινήκαν!
Και μέσα μπήκε να χαρώ, κι άλλο χαρτάκι λευκό και κατσαρό, ευχούλα να γραφτεί και στο εξωτερικό να πάει να σταλεί!

Άραγε η φίλη μου θα χαρεί;

Για την πρόκληση της Νατάσας, φυσικά!

A sunny funny day!

I think that as we getting older we may take a deep breath through the years and throw away some of those very stifling labels that used to put on things and people...

My father (Petroula's grandpa) used to put me and my sis stand like soldiers to take a photo, when we where children! As a result, we have very few unprepared pictures of us!
Αlmost two monts ago, while me and Petroula were at the vilage, when I saw that lovely blue wheelbarrow and that gorgeous sun out there, I thought "I must do it now!!!".
I took a pair of hip boots and wearing my husband's boxer (I still can't believe that, some decates ago that boxers were a fashion for women!), I grabed Petroula and put her in the one-wheel-vehicle and gave the camera to my father saying "Come and take some photos of us!".
And we started running and running, and having fun, all of us (well, maybe my baby a little less - she was a bit sleepy...)!!!

I enjoyed with my dad even more, when he asked me to take him some photos riding the vehicle with Petroula...


Our little girl loves everything with wheels...


Εισπνοήηηηη...

So, that was a funny sunny day at Amaliada!


And after the ride, some friendly acquaintances...



Inspired by;
Scrapbooking - "a funny moment that made me smile" and sketch
Bird is the Word - "Breath" on the top right side and sketch
Get Creative, 1st November - "at least 3 photos"
Sketches with a Twist - "Rubber stamp" on the backround (dandelions - Hero Art) and the journalling on the right side of the title (handmade stamp by rabber pixels - United Office) and sketch.
White With 1 - green + white + chevron pattern, although I will not participate, because they want the exclusive.

.... And after Teresa's exhortation participate at Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - "Happiness is..."! Because, some times HAPPINESS isn't necessary to be a big idea far away from us, but just a handful of happy moments! Thank you Teresa for the invitation!

Λοιπόν, αυτό είναι ό,τι πιο χύμα και "βρόμικο" έχω φτιάξει μέχρι τώρα! Αμφιβάλω αν είναι αυτό που λέμε ωραίο, αλλά πραγματικά παρασύρθηκα από τον αυθορμητισμό εκείνης της ημέρας και έκανα σχεδόν ό,τι μου ερχόταν στο μυαλό, χωρίς να κοιτάω ακριβώς την ομορφιά... Έκανα και κάποιες δοκιμές σε ιδέες δανεικές, που ήθελα...

Α. Το αμαξάκι δεξιά είναι ζυμαρικό βαμμένο με ακρυλικό και περασμένο με βερνίκι (με βεβαίωσε η χειροτεχνούλα Ελισάβετ πως δεν πιάνουν μαμούνια)... Έχω φτιάξει μ' αυτά και και καρτούλα, που θα σας δείξω την επόμενη φορά...
Επίσης, η πεταλουδίτσα κάτω αριστερά (όπως και στην προηγούμενη σύνθεσή μου) είναι από γύψο σε καλούπι που τα είχα φτιάξει εδώ και χρόνια και τα ΄χα αφήσει στην άκρη!
Μα τι ωραία που μπορείς να βάλεις ό,τι έχεις σε μία σελίδα! Το χαίρομαι όλο και περισσότερο όσο περνάει ο καιρός, αν και δεν προλαβαίνω παράγω ποσότητα!

Σήμερα έχει υπέροχη ημέρα! Εύχομαι να την εκμεταλλευτείτε!

Take a deep breath and enjoy the beatiful moments of life!!!

Φιλιά!

Playing with the camera

Well, I guess that in that photo on the top right of my blog I seem too be so optimistic!!! In fact, I was trying to  pose with confidence, maybe more confidence that I really have! That picture was taken during some photoshooting lessons I was taking some years ago. A proffecional photographer came and somebody should be the model - guess who? A proffecional makeup - artist made my makeup, and then the shooting started. The first 7 photos - like this one-, where good; I wasn't thinking and I was nearly flirting with the camera! Really fun and felt good!
However, after some minutes I started thinking what I am doing in front of so many people in the class - who were also taking pictures of me with their cameras - and got shy, so the next few photos where less good or bad...  I felt very uncomfortable!
Well my career as a model kept for that hour, and stoped there! Thanks god, I fell stronger teaching maths!

But that photo is my fave and reminds me how beautiful I felt with my body for those minutes!
I couldn't resist on CSI's calling for case No.43! I made my LO mostly in my head first, some days ago. And I made it today, when I found the time!

So here is me (for OUAS, please scroll down for the corrected LO)


And two more close ups...



And the journaling behind the photo, where I 've written more or less the above doc...



----> And here is my LO again in the mornig light and with the missing "y" in "playing"!!!; Time for CSI has expired, but for OUAS is ok...


THE SCHEME 
  • Black Tie Event - borders, leaves behind the photo, in title, details on the right bottom...
  • Lemon Chiffon  - yellow flowers and frame
  • Green Grace - small flowers and ribbon.
  • Alabaster Elegance - masked with gesso and homemade butterlflies 
  • Fancy Foliage - big flower and details
 EVIDENCE
  • damask; stamped with black ink around the page
  • ribbons; from fabric on the right bottom and sticker ribbons here and there
  • frame; with the word "playing" in the title
  • foliage; black polka 
  • something transparent; some eyedrops with liquid perls here and there
  • flourishes; flowers
  • rub-on; on the right bottom
 TESTIMONY (USE AT LEAST 1 ELEMENT)
  • Documented a special event.
  • Tie two ideas together: Write what first comes to your mind about your subject. Then, choose a connective from this site and write what comes to mind next.
Used some words in my journalling from that site...

So, I guess, case is closed for CSI No 43 ...
And also made for UOAS usind the beutiful sketch...

I also want to say how glad I am for winning at Puccarinas challenge at Get Creative with my happy tree. Thank you so much!!!
And brag a little for "my sweet little fairy" who was featured at C' est Magnifique!

Bye!
