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.

 Thanks for stopping by.




Just a few more days of November and we would have arrived at the very last month of the year ! It has been a whirlwind year and I’m trying to enjoy it as much as I can before the new year arrives. Here is a page I did a few weeks ago and forgot all about it.

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.

Have a great week and enjoy the sunshine.




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.



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,





Where did the month go ? It’s time to reveal the latest  Ed’s Sketch to welcome you. Please use a Bicycle stamp with the layout.

Here’s my take: photo Laugh_SB_30Jun14_zps2ec4db86.jpgI replaced one of the photo with a 3X4 Project Life/ Photo Pocket card. I love how the gold misted background still peaks from behind.
 photo Laugh3_SB_30Jun14_zps4fd1f580.jpg

Lots of different text and words. I love how the overlap and complement one another.

Do try your hand at the sketch and submit your entry over at Ed’s Sketch. We have some lovely RAK to give away.




Some days a clean look just doesn’t catch my fancy. No I don’t mean on a person but on my layout. Today’s layout was inspired by the organic muddy nature of the parks that we love to visit. If you find that the background paper you picked for your layout needs an extra dash of color, don’t be shy about it. Take out your paints, ink pads and even re-inkers and have fun.

 photo Amazing_May14copy_zps72680f79.jpgHere I have paint splatters, distressed ink and some sprinkle of mist.

That’s all for today. I’m trying to hide away from the scorching summer sunshine while I ponder on my next layout. Have a great week ahead,
