DeconstructingJen #100 sketch! - Happy Birthday card

Just a quick post before I go to bed.. haha it is going to be Friday soon! Can't wait for the week to end lol. O well, I was surfing through the net the other day and searching for some card sketches for me to play along and I landed up in DeconstructingJen!

After participating in the bloghop for the celebration of 100 sketches, I got inspired by the awesome cards made by the other fellow bloggers in the bloghop and I created this yesterday :D!

Handmade Calendar !

Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday! Haha had been quite quiet around here as I finally found a full-time job to gain some working experience before furthering my studies next year! 8.30-6pm on weekdays is taking all my time to allow me to sit down and craft.. but I was totally in a crafting mood last Sunday! Been thinking about how to make my workdesk more lively and fun.. and thought of the need to get a new calendar.. so I just made one last week! 

The good thing about it being handmade is that you can choose whatever papers/embellishments to decorate your calendar, and since its already May, I decided that I should create my calendar from May2013-Apr2014, but I could still add pages if I want to :D haha! 
I also attached the days on each month using staple bullets, which means I could always reuse the background and change just the dates for next year, the following year and so forth!

Hope you guys had liked it! Thanks for popping over :D

Prima April BAP - making {faces}

Haha 2nd post before heading to bed! Yes the april challenges at Prima's! Wanting to do the PPP but not yet had the time to do it since I had just started working last week >.< still getting used to the new environment and culture of the company.. its been going well at least :D
O well so yes! The BAP for April is soooooo inspirational! Love the mixed media feel to the whole sketch.. the drips and stampings..

April 2013 BAP Lene

and my take..

I first started with applying modelling paste over some chevron stencils as I was going for the fun style for this layout.. then I started misting madly! A mixture of blues, browns, orange and yellow to go with the papers of this beautiful Zephyr paper collection that I was going to use. After all of the misting, I started stamping the lace doilies stamps from the "Rosarian" stamp set with a brown ink. Then the layering starts with using all the scraps leftover from previous usages, and thought the butterfly negative seem to be in place with the pictures too :D

Some close-ups...
A close-up on the title with a little drips beneath them..

Mixed media effects with the stamps and misting with gesso..

Layerings beneath the photo, with a butterfly negative beside it.

Misting and more misting!

MME's special challenge with PageMaps!

Hello everyone! How had your Monday been? haha just a short post before bed time to share a layout I did some time ago for this challenge at MME's and PageMaps! 

The sketch for this challenge...
My take..
I tried to follow the sketch as closely as possible.. 
With the gessoing acting as the grids behind the circles.. 
and added a die cut with a circle behind the photo!
Lastly the tab with the subtitle 'Remember'.. and the main title '1970s' in which was the year that this photo was taken in. 

Thanks for popping by and have a great day guys :D
