My latest creations

Hi there bloggers!
How are you all doing, all fine i hope ;). Here there's a perfect balance between what i HAVE to do and what i LOVE to do, so i really could not wish for anything more ;).
I think i forgot to tell you that this weekend i will go with the shop to a regional scrap-meeting, so there's been a lot to do: deciding what products to take there, price-tagging them, organizing them in boxes, baskets and so on ;). I love this kind of activities, even though i know it sounds boring lolll :)). Except this i have also created. Friday and saturday i had 2 inspiration-voided days, where i stood with the pictures in front of me and i could not "see" anything. You know how it is in the artists' world :P. But sunday it "hit" me, so i made 2 more pages for my friend Dana, and - would you believe - i did not use any sketch whatsoever ;).
"Together forever":
Details:

and the other one called "You are MY GIFT":
and a detail picture (hope you can notice the glittered flowers in the upper-left corner):
What i have used: patterned paper from Dovecraft, glitter glue, some pearls and rhinestones, a butterfly punch and stickers for the tiles. All can be found in Happy Scrappy :). From my stash i used masks and cutting dies from Tim Holtz. If i create anything new before the weekend i will be back ;). 
Now i let you get back to your daily thingies and wish you a beautiful day!!!

3 LOs on the same lovely sketch

Hello everyone!
I said i was getting back to you soon, didn't i ;)?! I never felt so good creating after a sketch like after this one. Lovely sketch!!! You probably noticed that i started working on Dana's wedding album. Whenever i find a lovely sketch, like this one, i quickly make a page for our wedding album also, im naughty i know :P. Actually for Dana im making 2 wedding albums - one for each pair of parents and this challenge had as a extra-request 2 different color combinations. So what better occasion than this one - i used one color combination for 1 album, and the other for the 2nd album.
Now, for the march DT challenge at Sketch Thursdays im submitting this LO.
In daylight:
Detail:
Another detail (i love to see the paper texture from under the colors!!!):
Under artificial light: 
And here is the sketch:
And here come the 2 LOs for Dana and Marius. The titles were not inserted when i took the pictures, now they are in place ;). Here is the green&pink combination:
And a detail:
And here is the red&turqoise combination:
And the last detail:
Well, i hope you like them. I loved working on them, so much that i jumped over the double "portion" of Simpsons and Family Guy, my daily routine :P. And the beneficiary loved them also, which matters the most :).
Now, i wish you have a lovely weekend and blog again soon ;)!

Lansarea no. 8 - Revista Atelierul

Dragi pasionati de handmade,
Pe 5 februarie, la ora 16 ne vedem in Memento Pub and Underbar, strada Sepcari nr. 16, in centrul vechi al Bucurestiului pentru a lansa impreuna numarul 8 al revistei Atelierul.
Pe langa proiectia revistei, vom avea invitati trei propietari de magazine handmade pentru o prima editie de “Discutii in Atelierul”. Astfel alaturi de Sinziana Nastase si Eva Strat, fetele de la PixieShoes, Elena Gheorghe de la Dot Shop si Valentina Popescu de la fostul magazin Interesart vom incerca sa aflam cum au reusit sa transforme o pasiune pentru handmade, pentru produsele unicat ale tinerilor designeri, intr-o afacere profitabila. Publicul va fi cel mai important, el ne va intreba tot ce vrea sa afle despre curentul handmade si modul in care acesta se dezvolta.
Adiacent evenimentelor, Elena Gheorghe va veni cu o expozitie de sculpturi, iar fetele de la Pixie Shoes vor aduce produsele cele mai dragi lor din magazin.
Deasemenea ne-am gandit sa va indulcim cu bezele si sa facem un atelier insolit unde vom realiza produse numai bune de oferit persoanei dragi de sfantul Valentin.
Nu exista niciun cost pentru participarea la evenimentul Atelierul.
Este indicat sa veniti cu persoana iubita deoarece este un eveniment dedicat iubaretilor si iubirii.
