Happy Easter!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Easter(belated)!

Wew! It's been 13 months since my last post here. The longest so far. Why? Well, we've all had our down times and last year has been ours. Not so as I know that things happens for a reason and only God knows what the reason is. Ok, for why? Our tenant, needed his place so we have to pack up and move. It's hard to get a place here in Singapore so we just rented a room and all my scrapbooking materials were sent back to Philippines. So yeah there it is, I am left with just stencils and some stamps and the rest were all gone. But since I am a housewife and we are just renting a room now, I still need to have something to do or else I would lose my mind. So, I started painting, in which I only needed paints and brushes and maybe stencils and stamps. My very supportive and loving husband let me have those of course.

I miss joining challenges and all. Oh but my life is not so boring though because I was volunteering at my sons school teaching arts and crafts. So that made my life still busy and creative at some point.

If you are thinking why am I blogging now, oh well I came across Prima on FB showing the challenges and oh how I've missed it. You guys should know how I love Prima and last 2012 was very good year for me as almost monthly my pages are chosen. So anyway, I looked at my cupboards, drawers and everything to see if there is a chance, even a tiny weeny chance that there are some flowers left so I can join in the fun. Voila! I found that I still have 8 flowers left and some metal trinkets and so I am joining. I had a hard time in a way doing this as I've never touch flowers or embellishment in a long time. I need to brush up my skills.

Ok so this is this months Prima pallette:

This is my take. It's not so fancy as I really don't have flowers anymore but I promise, I did my best. Hope you like it.



Thank you for your time looking! Hope I can join in the next months challenges as I really miss it. Anyways, I will be going back to Philippines in June and probable will dig in the boxes we've sent and get some flowers so that once I am back here in Singapore in July I can join in again. Bye for now and hope to post more.

Hey...Enjoy Life

Hi everyone! Just want to share with you the mini-album I made this afternoon. I still can't continue carving my stamps as I am banned from doing so. I accidentally cut my thumb hahaha... My hubby told me that if I cut it again, he won't let me carve anymore so I need to behave myself from now and focus not to hurt myself.























I hope you enjoyed looking through my album. Thank you for looking and have a great day!

Celebrate Simplicity

Good morning! Last night, I received my prize from Faber-Castell. I am supposed to received just 2 packs of Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, but to my surprised, they added Gelatos into it. They are so kind and generous. I am truly thankful as I can't find gelatos here in Singapore. Even if I try to order it in Amazon, they won't let me check out with those items. Anyways, with my excitement I tried it out right away. I just made a simple mixed-media canvass just to try out my Gelatos :)


1) First, I gather the materials that I would be needing in my small project.


2) I cut out my scrap papers to fit in to my canvass (5.5" x 7.1").


3)After adhering my scraps to my canvass, I gesso-ed it.


4) Using my fingers, I smudge some acrylic colors to my collage.


5) I cut out an image of a person from book.


6) I brushed water to my handcarved stamps, then smudge the Gelatos into it and stamp my image directly to my collage.


7) I draw the hair using a marker and color it with my Gelatos.


8) Added a few stamps images (my hand carved stamps), doodle some words and add a bit of stickers.


Finished Product. Hope you like it.

Thank you for your time looking and have a great day!

xoxo,
Vanessa

The Twinery Challenge - Chevron & Green

Good morning! I had a great sleep last night. I would say that my day was complete because I am able to do my house chores, scrap, attend to my son and hubby and posted here at my blog. And I can't even believed myself that I am posting again.

Just now, I made a card that I would like to enter at The Twinery. This is my first time entering at their challenge and hoping to send more in the future.

Simply use the theme and create something using baker's twine...share their badge on your blog and, most importantly - HAVE FUN!

Theme: Chevron and Green



Here's my take:


1) Firts I prepared all the materials that I am going to use: Twine(The Twinery - Seaweed); Stamps (Hero Arts, my own handcarved chevron stamp)


2)I Stamped my images into a white cardstock and colored the flower using Faber-Castell watercoulour pencil.


3) I poked the sides of my chevron image and stitched it using my twinery seaweed.


4) I wrapped the sides of the card using The Twinery -Seaweed.


5) I used my Jillibean chevron paper as the main card and used a gate fold. I attached the other side of my mini card to the other side of the card.


6) The finished product

Hope you like it and thank you for looking!

True Friends

Hi there! I know I just posted something about my new hobby and here I am again. I know, when I am busy, It's taking me months to post here and when I am in the mood I can post as many as I want. But of course I won't do that... haha! Anyways, this one is different from the previous post so I decided to separate them. I like to share the mini-album I made using Carta Bella Paper - True Friends collection. I won this collection from Carta Bella when I did my altered mail box. Thank you for your time looking!



I hope you like it and thank you for visiting.

xoxo,
Vanessa
