A blog Hop with a difference!

Hello bloggers and crafters!
Today is my turn to introduce myself , as I take part in a blog hop with a difference!!!It's not a usual blog hop ,cause this time I must tell a few words about myself and some of my favourite crafters..
You are here from Athanasia's blog ...Athanasia is a super talented Greek girl ,who makes beautiful pages full of colours and stamps,that catch your eye,and stunning art-journaling pages...Her style is special so you have to visit her blog to see her awesome work!
Now,it's time for answering some questions about myself,as a part of the blog hop...

                                            What am I working on right now? 

These days are difficult days for me ,cause I work on a lot of projects...I am working on some mini albums ,photo albums and of course on Layouts for the current DT I am on.I am on Sketchabilities challenge blog so the last project i worked on was the LO for the next challenge...Here is a sneek peek of my page...  




                                 How long does it take to create a project?

It depends on the mood of the day...I usually need some "days" to create,cause i rarely concentrate on my project for more than two hours a day...I 'm a mother of two baby girls so it's really difficult for me to stay on my craft room alone and without noise.Anyway, I think that for a project,like a mixed media page,I need some hours to end up, usually three or four hours .
                                               
                             What are my fave things I Love to create with at the moment?
     
Lately I am  totally addicted to mediums ,gesso, and mists ,paints...Generally everything that can make my hands dirty...You can see some dirty examples on my mixed media LO's...


                                               How does my creative process work?

I don't follow a standard way to create my project...I often find my picture first and then I find my embellies I want to use(but there were some times that I chose my picture ,after I had made my backround).Then I start making my backround,and I finally decorate my page...My embelishments sometimes come from my house,my kitchen or everywhere I see something and feel that suits on my page... 


                                                       How do I become inspired?

Most of the times I scrap about my girls and my family in general.My girls are often my inspiration..But lately I also scrap about my friends,or things that make me happy...
                                                       What is my signature style?
I don't think I have a current style...I like trying new techniques and styles but I always I have in mind that i want my photo be the central part of my page and not been hidden by the embelishments...The most of my pages are made with mixed media techniques , but lately I love "clean and simple" style and I try this when I am in a mood...
You can see here some of my mixed media pages..


And some CAS pages...

The star of my life!

Εκτος από τις κοριτσίστικες σελίδες μου,λίγες φορές έχω έρθει "αντιμέτωπη" με αντρικά LO , κι αυτό γιατί , όπως αντιλήφθηκα , σπανια σκραπάρω τον "καλό " μου... Μόλις είδα την πρόκληση του Scraps N pieces πραγματικά συνειδητοποίησα πόσο έχω αδικήσει τον "λατρεμένο " μου , που τόση υπομονή κάνει με τα ξενύχτια μου πάνω απο τα χαρτιά μου και τα άχρηστα (για 'αλλους) μπλιμπλικια που μαζεύω κάθε τόσο και ξεφυτρωνουν σε κάθε γωνιά του σπιτιου,.. Ε ναι, φαντάζομαι πως όλες με καταλαβαίνετε, κι αυτοί οι ταλαίπωροι οι άντρες κάμποση υπομονή κάνουν!!!! Αφου φιλοσόφησα το θέμα λοιπόν και αποφάσισα πως δίκαια του αξίζει μια σελίδα ολόδικιά του, βαλθηκα να την φτιάξω....Το αποτέλεσμα μονοχρωματικό με διακριτικες πινελιες του κιτρινου μέσα στο όλο τυρκουάζ φόντο....H έμπνεση για το φόντο μου ήταν απο εδώ και αυτήν την φανταστική σελίδα!

The star of my life , λοιπόν... Ενα από τα αστέρια της ζωης μου...


Αυτή ειναι η σελίδα μου... Το σκετς που χρησιμοποίησα, σε πιο ελεύθερη έκφραση βέβαια είναι αυτο του Scrap Africa ,το οποίο αυτη τη φορα δεν ακολούθησα πιστα...
Hello there!!!!!

this time I made a male page about my lovely husband .... This photo is from our vacations in July,here in Greece,and it s a monocromatic page withsome yellow and black details!
I used the skecth of Scrap Africa 's challenge , but i didnt use two photos,hope not to be a problem...

That 's from me!!!

kisses

Christina!
