SnP March challenge - Little things mean a lot

Hello friends !!
Back with our March challenge at Scraps n Pieces and you are all welcome to play with our new theme 


I tried to follow the example of Myrto's art journaling class and attempted to make a landscape on my journal. I used my daler rowney aquafine watercolours and kept thinking all those endless hours I spent as a child
watching Bob Ross explaining how a tree or a mountain is "living somewhere around here...."


My double spread is about my son playing at the beach, a simple moment
yet important to my eyes.




There is also a moodboard about our challenge
and here it is


So come and play with us, have fun and get the chance to
win the gift from


a mini smash journal-3D !!
isn't that awesome or what !!



Thank you all for visiting !!

March main challenge at More than Words

Hello everyone !!

Hope you are doing ok and ready for our new challenge!
Word Inspiration - BLISS
Creative Challenge - GESSO
What does the word 'BLISS' inspire you to create? You can choose to use the word somewhere on your project or to simply be inspired to create from it. Please explain in your blog post how it inspired you, if it's not obvious.The creative challenge this month is to use ‘GESSO’. Chances are you have a bottle of gesso on your craft table, ready to be dipped into when it’s crafty time! Be it white, clear, black or any other colour, light or thick, smooth or textured, we want to see you use gesso on your project. Try it on your background, chipboard, embellishments or anything! If you don’t have any ready-made gesso, you can even make your own. We’ve provided an easy recipe for you below. It’s ‘prime’ time to get crafty!Add your March project in this album by February 20th.
Please add 1-2 lines explanation on how you were inspired by the word and how you interpreted the creative challenge.
VERY IMPORTANT!!!  You have to incorporate both parts of the challenge, that is the word inspiration and the creative challenge, on your project in order to be eligible for a prize.  Remember that our challenge concept is all about a WORD and more (thus our name More Than Words)! :)  When we vote, we specifically look for projects that display BOTH requirements, and not just the creative challenge.  Just look at our DT members' interpretation, as described underneath their project, as example.
Please check out our RULES to make sure that you are eligible for one of our prizes! 
We have kept these rules very simple for you to play along.  One of them is that
 you must post our board image and a link to our blog in your entry post.

So here is my project for this month

I used a lot of white gesso on my background and some more to highlight
the details on my canvas as well. The word "bliss" inspired me to create this 
project because ( although I am not really a religious person ) I think that there are some special places that make us feel serenity and bliss.






Here is the board image of our challenge!! Please remember to include it on your 
post with a link back to More than Words if you wish your entry to be eligible for our prizes !!
Thank you all so much for visiting !!
Have a great month !!
