Spring Blooms

I hope spring has arrived where you are right now because I just love it when the flowers start blooming and there is color everywhere you look. Its nice and sunny over here in Singapore and I needed some cool blue to tone things down.

I misted my white background with blue and if you take a look closely, you can see the texture I added with gesso and a mask.

I decided to bring out my bottles of mist for some workout and it was fun. I made my own background paper for this challenge and I’m loving it.

Here are some close ups of the layout:

Creating a Shaker Element Tutorial

Just crawling out of hibernation. I’ve been a little busy with stuff and the time just flew by. I thought I had this post scheduled but it didn’t post. So here is my tutorial for simple shaker cards.  I made some shaker cards last month and thought it would be fun to share the steps with everyone.

First, lets get all the materials ready.

 photo Tutorial_ShakerCard4_zpsimonowln.jpgYou will need:

a. Pattern paper for the top frame of your shaker

b. Chipboard

c. Base image for the shaker

d. Clear acetate

e. Glitter or Sequins

Steps:

1. PIck an image from your patterned paper for the base image. For this project I choose this lovely image from RRBF’s My Romance line.

2. Cut the chipboard, acetate and top frame to the same size as your base image.

3. Leaving a 0.5″ to 0.75″ border, cut out the middle sections of your chipboard and top frame just like the picture above.

4. Make a sandwich with the base image at the bottom, followed by the chipboard frame, acetate and top frame. Check that all layers align correctly before we start gluing the shaker together. I use a wet glue for this project as it allowed me to move the pieces around a little before everything bonded together.

Here is a video showing how the layers should be assembled. Do excuse the quality of the video. It’s my very first attempt at a video.

Here is the card all assembled:

Don’t you like the shake shake shake fun.

Love Shaker Cards

Today’s cards were all inspired by shaker cards. I love shaking the pretty glitter inside. With eye catching glitter,  I felt that less is more for these cards so I went with the simple look.

Here are some closeups:

This card had a more elaborate frame but the kept the viewing space within the frame clean to reduce any distractions.

ATC Inspiration

Some days I fall into a design rut and nothing seems to work. On days that I need a boost of inspiration, I try to attempt a small project to get my creative juices moving. Artist Trading Cards or ATCs have been around for a long time. I like that they are small – 3X4″, which make them less intimidating compare to a 12X12″ layout.

Here are some that I did for my RRBF assignment last month.

Here are some closeups of the ATCs:

So when you feel uninspired, trying working on something small and it might just be the start of something beautiful.

PageMaps – January

Welcome 2015! It’s a fresh new year with a new beginning. The Ruby Rock-it design team were invited as guest designers for Page Maps this lovely month of January.

 photo PageMaps3_zps7c79188c.jpgHere is my layout based on the sketch above. I used one of RRBF’s new wedding line – Get Hitched. I love the mix of gold and sliver with a dash of cream and white. It’s just so elegant.
