Holiday and "Socialites"

We all need holidays, short or long, sea or mountain, relaxation... we have many reasons to take holidays! I just came back from a short trip to Phuket, Thailand. It was a good short break for my family especially the kids. We stayed at Club Med and i'm amazed with the GOs...the long hours they spend with the guest , entertain people like us...override all the "not so good" thing about Club Med. Thank You so much for that.

I'm happy to come back to scrapping table with this news....i'm the new TCR Socialites Girl! I love the word "Socialites"! That means lets get social with fellow scrapbookers around the world! This is really exciting and i'm definitely having lots of fun here. Btw, the new palette is out...and again...the colors are just sooooo lovely. Have a look at my take.

Back at 3 Scrappy Boys...we are definitely planning some fun for upcoming National Scrapbooking Day. Here is some peak on my challenge.

Do pop by at their blog for more details.

Till again...

I'm all excited

I'm so excited...if you can see me dancing over must be laughing at me. LOL. I just got a call from tv producer that they have asked me to come on a show called Wanita Hari Ini (Local Malay Women Show) to talk about my scrapbook ideas. My slot is scheduled to be on air tomorrow at noon. I'm still trying to figure out what to say , but wish me luck!!!

I had sometime this morning to play with Echo Park Spring Time Collection and i decided to play along on Once Upon A Sketch. Their next challenge is really challenging your journalling skills. Nadia , seriously your blog is getting awesome. I love it to the max!

Here is the challenge if you wanna play along too...

Your journalling criteria for this challenge is to write the reason you chose to scrap this photo
(e.g. to remember this moment, to remember someone, to send a message to someone, because this photo makes you smile, the photo shows a personal achievement, your child's milestone etc. etc. )

Your journalling can be any type i.e. handwritten, printed etc.. and as long as you wish it to be.

REMEMBER: If you are making a card or altered project you DO NOT need to include the journalling criteria BUT you MUST use a quote somewhere on your card or project.....

And the sketch looks like this...

And my take this time...

Tutorial 1 - Mixed Media & TCR #54

I thought this time i wanted to share some things i do when i created my mixed media layout or canvas. My canvas is based on The Color Room Palette 54.
  1. I'm still into printing picture over pattern paper but this time i mod podge to the canvas before i spray all over with Tattered Angels Mist.
  2. The background of this piece is purely created using Tattered Angels Mist....Dazzling Diamond, Chalkboard Apricot and Passion Red. I spray randomly, all over and i keep adding Dazzling Diamond to lighter the color
  3. Thanks to Christy Tomlinson - her ideas of using Roller Stamp has got me hooked great for you to create background. This time i used Rollagraph Stamp - Typewriter and Wordwords. What you need to do is just roll and roll until u get the desired result.
  4. I also found this Super Cool Faber Castell Gelatos - it looks like a lipstick and the texture are great for inking the edges. I got this thru Christy too. Thanks for the tips!

Sketch 233 @ Pencil Lines

I always love to be here at Pencil Lines but sometimes time does not permit for me to do that. But today i decided to make some time and try their new sketch. This time, i tried printing photo on pattern paper. I used the printed writing so that my picture will have some texture. Kinda like how it looks like....something worth trying if you like the effect. I used my Epson Photo Printer Model 1390. This is my favourite printer of all coz it is able to print up to 13" x 13". Great right?

Take care...

Once Upon A .... Sketch

I found this cool sketch site and i think is quite interesting to join....Once Upon A...Sketch.

The founder.... which i think quite number of us know her...Nadia Cannizzo has started this sketch site that somehow reminds me again how much important to do your journalling. We tend to omit the most important elements in our layouts...the journalling part. We are much more interested in pretty embellishment! Do you agree with me? I know some of us doesn't want to journal because their handwriting is not that nice, and they feel that it will ruined the beauty of the layouts. Heck it is your layout....your creations. We scrap our photos so that we can show it to our next generations..but if we omit this important elements...unless we have super duper memories...are we able to remember the details let say 10 years from now?

So i took my first step , taking part in their sketch challenge..

Create a layout, card or any other project you can adapt this sketch to. If you are creating a card , off the page or altered project, the journalling criteria does not apply to you.
You can use the sketch and a quote instead.

Journalling criteria : Your journalling has to be HANDWRITTEN and at least 25 words long.

and here is the sketch for your inspiration

And this is my take

See ya

My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

Hi and i'm back again sharing with you my latest layout using Core'dinations cardstock. I fall in love with one of their embossed collection called Cosmo Cricket Core Impression - Neutrals Collection. I know some of us like me, find it hard to start scrapping on a cardstock. We generally prefers pattern paper to begin with. But well, is not that hard as i think it is. This is what people called scrapping on "White Space". Is actually fun where you have the flexibility creating your own background. The "Space" is yours and you just explore them by using any mediums in your stash. For my layouts, i decided to play with this 3 main things, 1) Acrylic Paint 2) Glimmer Mist 3) Crayons. I think the outcome is just awesome. The embossed texture in this cardstock helps my layouts into different dimension and i think you should give a try.

Some of cool things that i do with the cardstock...

1) Crayons - i melted it all around the cardstock using heat gun

2) Acrylic Paint - i used the liquid form paint and i splatter and blow it with a straw. Try different kind of straw sizes as it gives a different effect.

3) Glimmer Mist - Try using contrast color to your cardstock. It will definitely boost the color of your layout.

So don't be afraid to use cardstock as your base. I can guarantee you will like the effect.

I hope you enjoy my layout!

It aint easy...

Yes its true...this is my 2nd attempt producing ATCs. I'm so used to bigger surface and i find it difficult to work on the smaller me this is really small! LOL.

It was an idea of Yuz to do this exchange but thanks to you babe...i discover lots of interesting discovery while producing this. I played with lots of acrylic inks..which is my top favourite stuff at this moments. I just love how liquid it was and you can just move it around by just using water. I took out my melting pot which has been in my archive for the past 1 year! LOL. It great to mixed all this stuff and the outcome is just great!

I hope you like what i did Yuz. Can't wait to see yours. Hehe..

These are connected ATCs...they looked the same but they are not!!!
