"Forever" Layout

"Forever" layout

I love this Prima Divine collection!!! So shabby chic and beautiful!! It is perfect to portray the meaning of forever!!! hee.. After I adhered all the papers down, I misted abit of Mr Heuy's white mist at the background. I painted the chipboards with texture paste and inked over with Donna Salazar Mixed Media Inx.

I love this quote!! I popped it up with foam tape. Added some small pearls randomly too.

Acrylic Painting Class

Hi hi!!! Recently I attended a acrylic painting class at a local art studio. Its a fun class yet abit stressful... ha ha... because its the first time that I'm painting a big canvas, 18 inch by 24 inch!! So after each session, my arms ache!!! Oh my!! Sign of not enough exercise!!!

Here's the first painting that I have done. Took me a few lessons to get it done!!! Alot of texturing to do on the cliffs and rocks. I'm not very happy with the clouds though. Might amend abit!!!

My acrylic seascape painting

Below is the actual photo that I'm "copying"!!!

These cliffs took me 1.5 lessons to get it done and that's 3.75 hours!!! oh my!!! I'm too slow!!

This rock is my favourite!! Hee!!!

For my next painting, I think I want to paint a landscape of autumn forest!! I loved trees and the autumn colours are just too pretty and invokes peace and tranquility in me. Just hope that while painting, I can be at peace and not get stressed out by the details!!! ha ha...

Thanks for visiting. Have a fun week!!

Altered Book Box and Mini Album

Hello!! how's your week?? Me very very busy!!! Alot of meet ups, alot of crafting, alot of baking!!! Yap!!! I started to bake recently after a long long break!!! Yesterday, I baked 2 loafs of strawberry breads. Hmm.... but the texture are more like cake!! ha ha... But its tasty!!

Today I want to share about a book box that I made awhile back in February!! I love this box!!! Hope I can get more of this box to alter!!! Anyone any idea where can I buy?? I got it from a friend.

"Treasure" Book Box and Mini Album

Book box

I painted it with a coat of turquoise acrylic paint, followed by a coat of crackle medium and a final coat of white acrylic paint. Then I misted it with glimmer mists. Added the mixture of glass bead gel and texture paste over a brick stencil at the top and bottom edge of cover. I love to use chipboards. Hence the clock and gears chipboards are added, painted over with texture paste. The zipper head from Prima acts as the handle to open the box.

Book Box

Here's the side of the box. Also added a chipboard shape.

Book box

The inside of the box. The mini album inside is done with the same technique as the box. Each pages are made using chipboards and painted same way. I haven't add any photos inside so I will share again after I add.

I hope you enjoy my project. More posts on other projects are coming up. Do keep a lookout too.

Thanks for dropping by!!
