Music... to make housework easier... "Breathe Me" - Sia

I'm lucky to have great, understanding, inspirational friends who don't forget about me even when I travel all year round, even when I'm away, not having possibility to see them in  person. Really. It is possible and I feel blessed.
Not so long ago, one of them, Czekoczyna came with the idea of making a collaborative project - inspired by  our favorite music... and that's how "Music to make housework easier" came to life. Who we are? Just a group of passionate, creative girls: Agnieszka-AnnaAnai2:16Czekoczyna and me, Finn. And you can always join us - this inspirational challenge is open to everyone. 

So what is it all about? Here you can find the answer... and other projects of our creative team. Maybe you'll get inspired too?
This time we listened to the song that was absolutely new to me - but I fell in love with the voice, nostalgic, vulnerable, emotional. I liked the music...but the lyrics. Huge WOW. Something  made just for me.

Pages in my journal came to life quickly, without thinking. I knew what I was willing to do from the very beginning when this photo showed on my table. I love moments like this.

And here is the inspiration "Breath Me" by Sia. Beautiful Song.

Have you heard? Prima Art Venture in California is back in January 2014!!! Here is the registration link.
I'm happy to announce I'm listed as one of the teachers on this great event... just check who is there with me! How exciting!

Journal galore! (and Sizzix Friday!)

Hi, it's me again.
I relised there weren't many journal pages shown lately here on my blog. It doesn't mean I don't create them, oh no... it is all because my life gone totally crazy now - and it is going to be even worse (or at least similar) until Summer CHA... or maybe longer? There is something really BIG and important happening now behind the scenes for me - and it takes a lot of my attention. When the time will come - I will share as much as I can, but so far... let's focus on the journal pages, lol!

First one called "Dead tongue" (or dead language - it sounds the same in Polish) was inspired by one of the poems. It was made in one of my friend's travelling journal.

martwy jezyk - journal

Next travelling journal - next topic: this time "Macabre". What can suit better than "Danse Macabre" then?

danse macabre - journal

And finally - my "Journey Notebook" - new project I started to document some of my journeys. The base is an old book, the range of mediums - very limited... you can say it is something between a notebook and a journal in one. I like it so far. It is somehow special to me, really.

All in one - 7DS, Sizzix and Prima...

It is really good to be back home again and focus on thing I love the most - creating. I do love it, really - and   it may sound funny, but I wait for the moment when I'll get through the pile of emails, kits, orders, plans and messages to simply sit for a moment, think... and start to paint or cut paper. This is truly beautiful moment!

memories treasure - 7DS & Sizzix

The layout above is a mixture of Prima - my Sunrise-Sunset Collection and Mechanicals, 7 Dots Studio - "Love is in the Air" - beautiful collection by Agnieszka-Anna and Sizzix... All in one, we can say!
The girl on the photo is my aunt, Basia - it was taken in one of the most beautiful parks in Warsaw - I'd guess in the end of 60-ties.. missing part of the photo was used for another project, which I hope to share soon:)

If you want to see "work in progress", detailed list of products used and learn more about the process - jump on Sizzix blog today. As always I share a bit more there:)
I've also made this project for 7DS challenge, which started today :"3 Shades of Green" - I hope you love 7DS as much as I do and you want to join the fun...and maybe win some nice prices? More details here...

And now I'm off to some secret project that takes away quite a lot of my time now...

ProzART - creative escape (15-18 08.2013) - Poland

każdy ma czasem ochotę uciec. zmienić dekoracje. oderwać się od codzienności. przez chwilę odetchnąć.
i stworzyć coś własnymi rękami.

sometimes everyone feels like escaping. changing the surroundings. leaving the everyday behind.
just breathe for a moment. and create.

chciałybyśmy gorąco was zaprosić do przyjazdu do Czempinia w sierpniu.
przede wszystkim będziecie mieli szansę spędzić nie kilka godzin, ale kilka dni w inspirującym towarzystwie doborowych nauczycieli - trzy warsztaty scrapbookingowe prowadzone będą przez trzy wyśmienite Artystki. 
a warsztaty poprzedzą indywidualne sesje fotograficzne z utalentowanym Fotografem. I to nie wszystko!
czy można przepuścić taką okazję?

in August we would love to invite you to Czempiń to our Creative Escape.
first of all, it will be an opportunity to spend a couple of days (not just hours) in a wonderfully inspiring company of our instructors: there will be three scrapbooking workshops taught by three extraordinary Artists. + on Friday you will take part in an individual photo shoot with a talented Photographer. and it is not all!
can you miss such a chance?
