It’s the school break and I hardly have time to sit down. The kids are constantly on the move and keeping me on my feet. Here is a layout done not too long ago. I can’t wait for some quiet time when they go back to school next week and I get to play with my paints again.
Texture added with gesso with a layering of stamped images.
Doodled over the leave cut out which I had colored with a mixture of mist.
Have a great week and enjoy the sunshine.
Sharing a layout I did for RRBF last month. I wanted to give it a monochromatic feel but I didn’t want to just stick to black and grey shades. Instead, I decided to add one more color to the mix – blue, mixing shades of blue with just a dash of black and white. The colors complement one and other and everything matched easily.
Here are some closeups of the layout:
I did add a few gold sequins into the mix just for some shine and you can never get enough of the shiny stuff.
Stay positive and enjoy the day.
Welcome to the month of September and here is the newest challenge over at Ed’s Sketch.
Use a postal related stamp on you layout. Just remember to have fun.
Here is my take on the challenge:
I used a mask and layered on some gesso to create that speech bubble. Once dried, I stamped all over with my postage stamp.
Do have a go with the sketch. Submit your entry over at Ed’s Sketch for a chance to win some lovely RAK.
Enjoy the month of September.
It’s a cold and raining morning over here is Singapore But looking at this page really warms my heart. He’s getting shy in front of the camera but still willing to pause so I could take his pictures.
Close up of the elements:
The words are part of the patterned paper which I thought worked perfectly for this page.
I love the elements in the page and the stamps just work perfectly. If only I could write that nicely then the world would be perfect don’t you think?
I totally love his enthusiasm for life and everything around him. 9th of August was Singapore’s Birthday and he was all excited about it. Asking his daddy to apply the tattoo on his face and making sure he was wearing his reddest tee shirt. So, here is a page totally inspired by him and our nation’s 49’s Birthday.
I sprayed the banners a mixture of colours since it was a Birthday celebration. I have to tell you that I’m in love with those Thickers with map prints. I have been hording them for sometime. Just love the effect.
I did give the background paper a mist of gold but the camera refused to pick that up. No worries, it can shimmer and shine for me alone.
Someday when I stop and reflect, it just seems like time really files at supersonic speed. My baby boy is no longer a baby but all grown up. He doesn’t like having his picture taken much but there are days when he will oblige. Here is one that we took over the last school holidays. He will be taller than me soon but right now I’m happy to be the taller one.
This was one of my assignment for RRBF for the month of July. I paint the cardstock background randomly with a mixture of yellow gelatos and some blue mist right out of the bottle.
I do like the glittered alphas since that means I don’t have to glitter them myself. Makes me want to use more of them on a layout.
Have a great week. I’m looking forward to National Day this weekend.
