The last standing railway station in Singapore – Tanjong Pagar Station. Even though most of the tracks have been removed, the place still retains it’s old world charm.
Recently I have been going back to my gold mist when I need some extra color for my layout. I like how it shimmers in the light so I’m guarding my tiny bottle of gold mist very carefully.
I like this pretty blue letter stickers with the gold lines.
I went all out with the layering. Love the way the stickers work with the photographs.
Have a great Monday.
We were lucky to be gifted with two tickets for the National Day parade rehearsal and these were the lucky two that got to attend the event. I had a sheet of this Happy Birthday paper that was perfect for the photo since it was Singapore’s 50th Birthday party.
The hearts just kept getting into the page and I’m loving it. I managed to locate the SG50 sticker that was given out to me some time ago and it worked great with this layout.
Can’t wait to play with more of my stash.
I’ve been working on my monthly project life photos but the thought of stopping scrapbooking has been on the back of my mind. One half of me thinks it would be nice to clear out all my stash. Maybe start a new hobby that takes up less space yet the other half of me still can’t bear to stop. The creative process is what I enjoy the most. So after dragging my feet for the longest time, I printed out the photos, grabbed some supplies and dived in.
This is the layout that emerged. A little too clean and simple but good enough to start
Still love those enamel dots:
and lots of stickers:
Dusting off my table and back to more fun stuff.
Today I have a tutorial to share with you. Paper dollies are pretty but they are usually white or pink. That’s just so common so I thought it would be nice to make some to make whatever paper I’m using for my layout.
Here are the basic steps:
1. Trim your paper into a square.
2. Fold the square into a triangle.
3. Fold it again into a smaller triangle
4. If you are able to fold further, fold your triangle into a smaller triangle.
5. Draw a curve at the top of the triangle.
6. Trim off the curve and you have a basic dollie.
7. Continue cutting tiny holes into your triangle if you more details on your dollie.
8. Open it up and admire your hardwork.
Here is a layout I made with my own handmade paper dollies:
Do have a try. Drop me a link to your work if you made some dollies too.
I’ve been missing my paints and mist lately and decided to take them out to play. I went a little cautious with this layout. It was a little understated but the effect worked with the photo.
The flowers gave the page lots of texture but didn’t make it any less masculine.
Thanks for stopping by.
I’ve been taking a break the last month and now I’m all ready to start sharing some of the layouts I’ve done for my DT assignments fro Ruby Rock-it, For this layout I’ve used the monochromatic color palette as my inspiration. Clean lines and minimal clutter on the layout.
Using the white background as the base, the photos and pattern papers just draw the eye right into the middle of the layout.
Simple journaling done with a typewriter.
I layered my title with black at the bottom which helped create a floating feeling.
Come back tomorrow as I will be sharing more projects.
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.
Have a great Wednesday,
