Some peace - lo איזו מן שלווה



This photo of mine was taken years ago, on August 1995, on a Bre' mountain nearby Lake Lugano. It is one of the most peaceful places I've been to. On that journey I visited Lugano twice: On my way from Italy to Swiss, and then once again when I crossed the Alps back to Italy to return home. I just had to stop there once again and come back to that particular spot on Mount Bre'. Looking at these photos, and I think you can perfectly understand me. The title of this lo says in Hebrew: Peaceful.

When I look at my crafty works lately, I might say I'm in my 'blue period'... To my lately regular color combo, blue, brown/kraft and cream/white/ivory, I added this time some greenish shades. I think the color combo of all of them turned awesome.

The lo was based on the sketch over sketches in thyme. I just love the sketches Kim brings every week, and they have a very tallented bunch of ladies for DT's. Here is the sketch:


I stamped over the dp with two of my fav stamps, and they just match the swirled pattern on the dp.

I just love this ribbon flower! So easy to make, so wonderful effect. The tutorial how to make it is here. And what do you think about that charm and key? I love love love them. I also liked the look of that zipper, with all the branches flourishing out of it.




I used chipboards (the brown flower and the brackets of the journaling), brads (the glittered green one on top of the Prima aqua flower, and with the key on the left bottom corner), a key diecut, a green button with metal embellishment on it and a metal corner (left upper corner). The small butterflies are also metalic.

Thanks for stoppinb by!

התמונות הללו צולמו לפני 15 שנים, על פסגת Monte Bre, מעל אגם לוגאנו בשוויץ. אחד המקומות היפים ביותר ומעוררי השלווה שראיתי. הייתי שם במהלך טיול שכלל חלקים מאיטליה ושוויץ. כל כך התלהבתי מהמקום, אז חזרתי אליו שוב כשחציתי בחזרה את האלפים בחזרה לאיטליה.

השתמשתי שוב בפרח שעשוי מסרטים, פרח מצ'יפבורד עם כפתור ופרחי פרימה עם סיכה מתפצלת ששדרגתי אותה עם אבקת נצנצים. קישוטים נוספים שהשתמשתי בהם - סרטי תחרה, תליון נשי עם מראה עתיק, מפתח מתכת ומפתח של חיתוכי וינטאג', פינת מתכת, הרבה פרפרים, ריצ'רץ' וסרטי עלים ירוקים.

לשילוב הצבעים שאהוב עלי מאד לאחרונה, הוספתי גם גווני ירוק. התוצאה שהתקבלה מצאה חן בעיני מאד, והשתלבה מאד יפה עם הצבעים של התמונות.

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל!
