Friday

Someone had 2 mains for dinner (Not me)!


Someone-had-2-mains-for-dinner

So the other day we went to the NUSS cafe for dinner and my sister decided to order the stuffed squid. 


When it came, my sister was a little disappointed (Note: facial expression had to be re-enacted for me! Hehe...) because the portion was really pathetic.


So she ordered another main - a club sandwich. Notice the much happier expression on her face? It's because of those curly fries! Why do curly fries taste better than normal fries??? *winks*


Still working hard on demolishing the scrap pile but it's always fun to incorporate little fun bits on my layout - a little cup here, a monster there...you know. *LOL*


Playing along with Stuck?! Sketches.

P/s: Happy weekend friends!

One box: three ways



Remember how excited I was about the sturdy boxes that the Google WiFi Routers came in? Well, I had to wait a whole week before I could work on them (in case they didn't work and we had to return them in those boxes.*winks*).

Anyway, I wanted to challenge myself to create three different decorated boxes...here they are in one post. :)

Mixed media box inspired by Pantone 2018 Colour of the Year - Ultra Violet (a tutorial)


Mixed-media-proect-inspired-by-2018-Pantone-Colour-of-the-Year---ultra-violet
The lovely Tina Walker invited us to participate in fun challenge inspired by Pantone 2018 Colour of the year - Ultra Violet. I really wanted to use this Give me some nude lip box that I got from Sephora during the Christmas sale for my project so I decided that I would just paint a mouth wearing ultra violet lipstick. :)


I covered the box with scrunched up wrapping tissue (from packaging) which I adhered with gel medium. Then I prep the box for colorants with gesso.


Next, I covered it with red mist and then a layer of purple mist to create depth in the layers of colours.


Then I went in with inks and acrylic paints. This took a bit of time...and a lot of wet tissues to create the desired effect of a dimensional mouth.


The brush pens and markers helped to make the process a little easier but I did have to go in with heavy body acrylic paints for the darkest shadows and highlights.


It was quite a fun challenge to partake in and it was possibly the first time my project ever turned out the way I envisioned it to...*winks* 

Happy week ahead friends! :)

Wednesday

You make my heart sing...Happy Valentine's Day!


You-make-my-heart-sing

Happy Valentine's Day friends! :) Today's project is a 6x6 mixed media canvas.


I started by adhering a mix of different remnant lace pieces on the canvas with gel medium. Then I painted a layer of gesso over it to prep the surface for colorants. 


I went in with just two colours of mists - a teal and a hot pink - and you get a third shade (a purple) where the two colours meet. :) Once the mist layer is dry, I went in with some gesso to really pull out the texture and design of the intricate lace pieces.


Then I finished with some embellishments (repurposed from old projects).

P/s: Hope you are having a great week so far!

33 really sweet projects *winks*



So it's Valentine's Day tomorrow and I thought it would be appropriate to share a round-up of 33 of the sweetest projects I've ever made. Even though I tend to gravitate towards bold and bright colours, there is a side of me that enjoys sweet, pastel colours too (apparently...*winks*).
