A family picture on a canvas

Hi all,

I wanted to make my grandmother (the only one who left) a canvas with my family picture. She likes to present our pictures at her home, so I wanted to give her something special. I know that she will appreciate it as well - she loves the arts and crafts and she used to make some different projects when she was younger, from several areas.

For the background I used the technique I learned from Nathalie Kalbach's workshop, using acrylic paints, Glimmer Mist and inks with masks. On top of that I used some Webster's Pages papers that were left from this workshop.
Here are the pictures of the canvas:




She will get it in the coming Jewish New Year holiday in about 2 weeks.

Let me know what you think :-)

New Cards and Challenges

Hi,

Wow, this month was so creative. I think I created so many projects (not all of them got a post but you can see them in my Picasa album).
Anyway, a friend from work asked me to help out and make her two birthday cards for her family and friends in the same style I did for her birthday. Of course I said yes - always happy to help in such cases...

For the first card I used the MojoMonday #153 sketch:


This card is also participating in the Cute Card Thursday #127 - no punches / die cut machines!
The papers are from K & Co.

And this is the second card (I used my new very small flower punch):



The papers are from Basic Grey and K & Co.

Hope you like them :-)

Lior's Birthday - August 2010

Hi,

This post is dedicated to my scrap friend (who became a real friend) - Lior.
Lior wanted a scrapy birthday, so this is what she got. We met with some other scrapy friends last Friday morning. I could'nt stay for the creative part when we were supposed to make her a 20x20cm page, so I got homework now....

This is the gift I made her - she loves pink so this is what she got:

A small box

A card

A "gift card"

All together

On the back of the gift card, I wrote that she will get a training on how to open a blog for herself - she has so many beautiful things that she created, and she doesn't have a place to tell about it properly. I hope she will find the time to get the training...

Anyway - Happy Birhtday Liori!!!! I love you!!!!
