I'm going to Spain

Hi everyone,
Yes, Sunday I'm going to Spain, where I'll meet my sister and her family, in a long waited and well deserved holiday!!! I can't wait to see them!
Soooo, this means presents right? Well, I worked like a mad woman these last weeks to finish them, but I have them ready!LOL
OK, I made these two for my little niece, Cristina Maria.


Here you can see some of the details:

The next ones are for my nephew Tudor and for Monica and Alex. But first, there is a story about them that I want to share with you. As you'll see, I tried something completely different( again! LOL). I hope it's as a nice surprise for you as it was for me when I worked them. One day, few weeks ago, I was browsing the net and I accidentally found a dutch artist, Carla van den Berg. She is a FABULOUS ARTIST, I mean it, take a look at her website and you wont regret it! And this is not all, she has a YouTube channel, http://www.youtube.com/user/carlavandenberg, where you can see some of her awesome work, as well as a huge amount of videos in which she shares her techniques, her generosity is amazing!!! She and her work spoke to my heart and, as if by magic, touched a string that I never thought it was there all the time, just waiting to be awaken.  And awaken it was, I tell you!!!LOL
THANK YOU, Carla!!!
So, here they are:


And details here:

Hope you like them, because surely you'll see more of these after I'm back from my holiday!LOL
Hope everyone have a great time, see you all soon,
Lots of love,
Sanda xoxo

Hi Sanda,
your recent work is so amazing, I am totally in awe! Love the second one the most, diffent to your usual style alright, but so cute and gorgeous. I also love the way you use all the different textures. I am so inspired and feel bad I don't paint more often, I will do one soon, yours are so inspiring that they make my fingers itchy. Enjoy your holiday and the sun, here has nothing!

Hugs,
Lily

Hello Sandra,

While "surfing the net" I just now stumbled across your page. I am IN LOVE with your work, style, interests, place you live (lol) and do hope you will share how to do some of these techniques. I have spent $xx,xxx on materials, products, stamps but blocked by fear and lack of being organized. I am working hard to GET organized and walk thru the doorway to start CREATING. Face my Fear and just start!!! I can't wait to look around at all your creations. Thank you so much for sharing!!!!!
