This is how i was inspired by the lovely moodboard of Rachaell!!!
I used a photo from my last trip at Rome with my hubby!!!
While waiting our pizza to come at the table, situated in a marvelous restaurant at the famous Piazza Navona, we were holding hands....I wanted at that moment to take a photo....and i founded exactly the moment to use it!!
I took advantage from the triangles of the pattern paper and I stiched triangles all over my page.Then with a pencil I created other ones and i colored them!Then I added other pieces of paper & embellisements!!
I hope you like it and you join us also this month!!!!

Dt Reveal at SCRAPS 'N PIECES October challenge!

Καλημέρα και καλό μήνα!!!

Η πρόκληση του Οκτωβρίου στο αγαπημένο SCRAPS 'N PIECES έχει θέμα: 
Free as a bird

και σας περιμένουμε να παίξετε μαζι μας!!!

Η χρωματική παλέτα είναι προαιρετική.
Ο τίτλος προαιρετικός.

ΥΠΟΧΡΕΩΤΙΚΑ στη σύνθεσή σας θα πρέπει να υπάρχουν κάποιου είδους φτερά! Από πουλιού μέχρι αεροπλάνου, δεν μας νοιάζει, αρκεί να υπάρχουν φτερά!

Φτιάχνετε ότι θέλετε όπως πάντα, είτε σύνθεση, κάρτα, art journal σελίδα,
mixed media καμβά, altered item...

Όπως έχουμε υποσχεθεί για κάθε πρόκληση, σας δίνουμε ένα σκετς της Helen Hapsi για όσες θέλουν να το χρησιμοποιήσουν και τις βοηθάει να έχουν έναν "οδηγό".

Αυτή είναι η δική μου σύνθεση, εμπνευσμένη από τι άλλο???....Τα 3 γλυκά μου αγγελούδια!!!

You are the anchor 
that keeps my feet 
on the ground,
I'll be the wings
 that keeps your heart 
in the clouds!

Με αυτό το πολυαγαπημένο quote ξεκίνησα να φτιάχνω τα φτερά της σύνθεσης...
Εκοψα με το cameo το χαρτί που χρησιμοποίησα ως φοντο, σε σχήμα φτερών και πρόσθεσα στη συνεχεια τα φτερά απο την αναποδη μερια τους  γιατι μου αρεσαν πολύ οι λέξεις που ηταν γραμμένες επάνω τους και ηθελα να φαίνονται!
Το χαρτί που χρησιμοποίησα βοηθήσε αρκετα στο να αναδειχθούν αυτες οι αντιθέσεις στο patterned paper!
Σας περιμένουμε να παίξετε μαζι μας και αυτόν τον μήνα!
Καλές δημιουργίες!!!
