Someone had 2 mains for dinner (Not me)!


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 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 they are in one post. :)

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

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! :)

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


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*).
