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.

My Son

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.

Use a postal related stamp on you layout.  Just remember to have fun.

Here is my take on the challenge:

 photo BeYou_SB_18Aug14_zps0807dd14.jpgI used a mask and layered on some gesso to create that speech bubble. Once dried, I stamped all over with my postage stamp.

Crazy Love

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.

 photo Singapore_SB_20Sep14_zpsf9778e34.jpgI 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.

 photo Singapore2_SB_20Sep14_zpsf2055f6b.jpgI 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.



This & That

Here is the newest  Ed’s Sketch for the month of August.

Use any stamp on you layout just remember to have fun.

Here is my take on the challenge:

 photo ThisThat_SB_31Jul14_zpsb98033e9.jpg

I gave the background paper a flick of gold and green Prima Color Bloomz and let mist drip.
 photo ThisThat2_SB_31Jul14_zps2086123b.jpg

The alphabet die cut works perfectly with the photo and I really like how it draws the eye to the photo.

A Day to Remember Mini Album

I wanted to share this mini album that I created for my DT assignment for Ruby Rock-it last month. Since the RRBF Fundamental Cards had an embossed front which was really pretty, I wanted to use them as the mini album cover.

 photo MiniAlbum5_2Jun14_zps223c596e.jpgBasically, I painted the cover with some water colors and then rubbed brown ink all over to allow the embossed images to stand out.

 photo MiniAlbum_2Jun14_zps5b459d18.jpgThe inside pages where all done with Bella! Year in Review collection.

The album pages were just tied together with ribbon and there you have it. A mini album for more precious photos.

Have a great week ahead,
