September challenge

Hello everyone :)

Today we would like to invite you to take part in our September challenge. The theme is A NEW BEGINNING. Below you will find inspiring projects from our fabulous team:

 


I revisited once again an old time favourite collection from 7 Dots “Wonderland

It is very rare for me to find a collection with the right colour blue that I like and that appeals to my style and that does not look TOO masculine. This is why I love Wonderland and some of the older 7 Dots Studio collections because this blue is perfect for that bit of rustic look I am looking for.

 

For me this summer was very hard. We had to move to the other city with my family because of war. Now we try to live in other city and i hope it will be new happy beginning for us.

 

We are all very excited about the new beginnings in life, when they come! But they always require enthusiasm (which we have) and effort (which we’d rather avoid). They are not easy, so we need to try and take that first step. It’s like a small boat heading to the other, beautiful side of a lake but there’s rowing to be done. I have used the awesome “Cold Nature” Collection – it wonderfully matches with the watery background of the photo and the mixed media techniques.

 


The autumn marks new beginnings. My children are still too young for school, but autumn marks a new start with the daycare. It also marks the start of new season and different weather and temperatures. But I wanted to draw inspiration from the idea of beginning. So when I came across this photo of my husband building a guitar, I went with it. He started to build his own instruments some time ago. First it was just one. Then came the other. And other. Now he always has multiple projects going on simultaneously! So every time an instrument is finished, there’s always another one to be started.

 

My wedding day was a total new beginning in my life. Everything changed in my life and I understood what does it mean to be happy. We are married almost 5 years and I can’t believe that time goes so fast. And this layout will remind me those precious moments of my new beginning.

 

I was thinking a lot about a new beginning recently. It seems to me that all of us want to start from the beginning sometimes… And I am sure that all of us deserve the second chance. Sometimes not only once ;-)

 

This months theme of “New Beginnings” inspired me to scrap this picture of my sweet girl on her first day of school! I used papers and tags from the beautiful Cold Country Collection. For my background I did some stamping with 7 Dots Stamps(love them) and added a little color with mists and gelatos.

 

When thinking about the topic of new beginnings I was drawn to this photo of my son & his friends at their Final Dance at school last year. Now he is away at university & everyone has gone their separate ways. It made me think of how every time something ends it is always the beginning of something new. The circle of life, with the only certainty being that change is inevitable.

 

The theme this month is perfect for me…we made a huge change in our lives and moved to USA last December. In my page you see a photo that my hubby took from the airplane’s window the day we were moving, the sky looked so beautiful with purple, gray and orange tones and we were very excited, a little scared but full of faith. It means a new chapter in our lives, a new home, a new country and a new beginning….
