Textures texures

This week reveal at CSI is such a soothing selection of colors. Hop over now.

I want to share with you some tips in making this page:
1) To create the textured background, I took a piece of kleenx (tissue paper) and some teal paints. Dab over the tissue and it absorbs the paints. You can very interesting creases and textures along the way.

2) I added burlap behind the photos. You can get burlap from Spotlight. I got mine from Australia Spotlight while holidaying there last year. I hope the Singapore store carries this fantastic materials.

3) I found a very 'holey' trim among my Maya Arts trim... another possible way of adding textures.

4) Finally splatter some brown paints over. I also spray a pearl mist over the painted areas.

Hope you like these techniques I share today. Go and try them! Have fun

CSI case 29

Case 29 is open. You have to check out the delicious colors. I hope you can join in this week.

I have not scrap my elder for some time. the reason is simple. Tweens hate to have their pictures taken. It takes heavy duty bribes and coaxing to get her to do so. This day is my lucky shot. She is in a good mood. My girl, my girl.. how much she has grown.

Oh... yesterday i pop into my LSS, Made with Love. I carted home a 7G Photo Carousel.
Great promotion now. $174.15 worth, now it is $79.95. I have been wanting to buy this and now the price is toooooooo good to pass.
Check out

Hope you like this. Happy day to you.

Guest Designer

I feel very blessed to be invited by this Russian Scrap site. Check this out HERE.
You will need google translator. hee..hee...
thanks Marina for inviting me.

Lots of paints and gesso. One fave technique now is to distress edges of paper and then I ink/use mists to spray that part to reveal another color. Totally fun! Try it.

I am back

It has been 2 crazy months...... I realized I hardly touched my scrapping for 2 whole months!!!
Arrggghhh... oh my pain!
But the good news is I have not lost my scrapping brain or heart.
The mojo is still there.  Gasp... I hope!

Here's a page i created for Made with Love.
My brother in law and my cute niece.
Photos like these are sooooo natural and cute.
 I used my favorite techniques of gesso and glimmer mist.
I like to take out the nozzle and just flick it over the page instead of spraying directly onto paper.
This is fast becoming my fave technique.
and i found a new 'fabric'... a gauge mesh ... i love the addition of textures!

And here's a 30min layout done is a flash! that's the time I have.
I love the new Melissa Frances products which have landed in Made with Love.
Go grab them! You have to see it!

The sentiments on this page sums up my 2 months.
I was working very hard but yet I tried to steal time in between work and travel and be with my kids.
Every working mother will understand the guilt, the balancing art and the pain we struggle with.
It is not easy but God's grace is enough for me. 

Have a nice week.
