Happy new year and ... Get lucky !!

   Happy new year everyone !!! Usually the winter in Greece starts a little bit later, but this new years eve was surprisingly cold and snowy !! Although I am not a winter person I found myself enjoying the cold weather and trying desperately to find some long forgotten warm clothes to wear !!

  This year we have some changes at Scraps n Pieces challenge blog and I am very happy to announce our two new DT members , who are dear friends of mine in life and VERY talented artist too! Please welcome them and visit their blogs to find out their amazing work!


 and 


   So we have our new challenge for January at Scraps n Pieces challenge blog and the theme is " Get lucky " !! Create a project and include something that brings you luck and good fortune! You can find all the details at our blog here.

I made a page with a small pomegranate, which is a tradition of  new years eve here in Greece. Pomegranate is a symbol of good luck, fertility and abundance, and we traditionally brake it to pieces when the new year arrives to bring good fate to our houses ! I used a new technique to create my  background by splashing a little bit of mist with my brush and then spray it with water to dissolve and create this watercolor effect.I tried this trick for the first time at my page and it was so fun !!



    As usual we have an optional sketch for those who want to use it !





   With my page I will also enter to December challenge at 7 dots studio about holiday traditions. Ι have used  papers from Nature walk collection for my strips and for my semi circles too.

  


and also at the Mixed media monthly challenge #8 where we must try something new on our project!



   
Thank you are for being here, I wish you the best for 2015 !!
