2013 March PPP 

And my take..
 I used the nature garden collection to do this layout... 

A few juicy close-ups :)
 Finally get to use my prima alphas from my stash.. 

 Used a mixture of prima and handmade flowers with twine to frame around my picture for more focus.. 

Some mixed media technique put into place by first using modeling paste over a prima mask i recently bought and then misting with brown to give it a little color..

CSI #63 - Scrapluv.

Hello everyone! A brand new week to start with a new creation! CSI #63 is up on the site!! Woohoo.. lets see the case file for this week.. 
What a vintage photo and color combinations arent they?
And so, after looking at the testimony, I decided to document a hobby. Which I definitely had to scrapbook on my my hobby of scrapbooking! No doubt about that haha!

 I took a picture of my scrapbook goodies that I had hoarded since 2011 when I had just started this hobby of mine, buttons.. papers.. distress inks.. flowers.. stickers.. woah! 
I first started out choosing this collection of papers from BasicGrey, the Lucille collection. then i gessoed randomly on the pink paper before layering the brown strip at the centre so that it will stand out more.. then the layering goes on.. :D

 The title that I finally decided on after a while.. scrapluv. ! with my stash of thickers :D

 I used 2 butterflies that was with this collection of papers.. and stuck 2 pearls on the body ..

 Some of the juicy layerings behind my photo.. 

 A close-up pic of the photo that I had taken for this case file :D

So thats about it.. 
The evidence shown was the use of pearls.. tape measures(as one of the layers), and lace.
Thanks for popping over, enjoy your day ahead :D

Products used: 
Basic Grey - Lucille collection patterned papers

CSI #62 - Mahjong Kakis*

Hello everyone! Wow a week had just gone by so fast and its already.. what? FRIDAY?! Phews we went for a short trip to Bangkok last week during this time.. happily eating and shopping! Teehee o well enough of my blabbering ;) 
So here it is.. I did this layout for the case #62 from CSI after coming back from the trip on Monday.. it just pieced up together so fast when you have that scrapping mood! 

Heres my product.. :D
I gesso-ed the gray paper from Basic Grey randomly so that it would not be that dark.. and well I was pretty pleased with the outcome! 

I then made the sunburst effect with another paper from Basic Grey.. one of my old papers that has the colors totally fitting the color scheme of this week. I distressed the sides before rolling a bit..

Ha I found this set of colorful alphas in my sticker cabinet.. And I thought it is kinda nice to brighten the dull background with some colors ;D and the red 'polka' big dots I misted on the paper to give that fun feeling 
Mahjong Kakis was actually a form of naming ourselves as players for a card game.. we usually play the card game together :D

 And the last step was twirling the baker's twine around the photo for a framed up look :D

Evidence found was the circles (from the red big dots), sunburst pattern and the tone-on-tone..
The testimony was to document a friendship :D 

Thats it for today! Thanks for popping over and I hope u have a great day ahead!

TPE188 - Birthday Wishes card

Hello everyone! A short and sweet post of a birthday card I made yesterday night for a friend.. took me some time to end up with the current results as I dont usually work with dark colors but refused to use other products lol.. well so i went through the net and found The Pink Elephant challenge #188 with a theme of "Anything goes" !

Here's what I came up with...

Lots of layering and distressing in this card made from Prima's Romance Novel paper pad..
The scalloped paper lace at the side were punched using the Martha Stewart doily lace punch and distressed with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink pad :D

Thanks for popping by and have fun!

OUAS March Challenge/TPE Scrapbook Challenge #48 - Beautiful

Hello friends! Finally got into my scrapping mood and did a layout for my sis and her friend on a photograph that they took during one of the weekends out at orchard Scape! After browsing the net for some inspiration to start off my layout, I found this Once Upon A Sketch.. march challenge pretty fun to do the layout.. and it was "Its the weekend!" theme + the challenge at The Pink Elephant scrapbook challenge #48 to use either hexogons or chevrons ...

 Here's my take on the challenge..

*Hidden journaling at the back
I used some gesso on the sides to soften the edges a little, and curled up the tags like "moments" and "for the record" before adding the chipboard element which is the title of the layout Beautiful :D 
The last step was to add the punched butterflies at the sides of the layers.. 
Thanks for popping over and have a great day :D
