Hello everybody! It's been a long time since my last post but I am on vacation, far from the city and far from reliable internet connections!

I will share with you the view from my balcony, to see how lucky I am. This balcony is the perfect place. In the shadow of two big pine trees , surrounded by many flowers and vines, with only the whisper of the sea and the summer breeze to listen to. Magic.



In other words, it is the perfect place for art journaling!

As some of you already know, I had ordered the new "smash" notebook for the vacation scrapbooking. However, it was delayed by the post, and in my first week here, I decided to make a vacation journal with some spare paper I had with me. And of course it was watercolor paper. Combined with some canson it gave me the perfect vacation journal.

My Derwent pencils and some sprays are all I need this summer. Oh, and my POGO printer.

That's all for now - you won't believe the time I spent to upload these pictures. I hope that you are in an equally beautiful summer place.

Hugs,

Myrto.

I am a student at Miss Art's and last month Heidi Kelley (my fav teacher) presented us with a layout that was very -very interesting. I scraplifted it and here is the result:



I love the empty space of the page, and all these details packed in a so small space. I love the idea of the torn paper. I sprayed and misted it, used my distress inks to it and of course shimmerz paints. The stamp is an old one from Hero Arts, the flowers from K company and my stash, the flourishes from Sfragidomania. All the rest from my stash sprayed in coordinate colors. (I have more than 40 mists and sometimes feel they are not enough!!!!)

Eight years ago, my daughter was born premature (27 weeks only). Since then, she is treated by a team of doctors and therapists, in order to ensure that she develops all the skills and abilities of a normal child of her age.

It has been a long way for us and for her, but seems that everything turned out better than expected, and she is now a healthy and clever little girl like every other little girl of the same age!

We were lucky that we found an amazing physiotherapist that stands by her all these long 8 years. She has helped us all with her advice , concern and care and we are grateful that she happened to cross our road.

Although she is dedicated to children, she has not children of her own, but a little furball called Rouni. He is a caniche and he is very cute!

So, this is the mini paper bag album I made for him.
