Mixed Media Vintage Shop

Hello!!! Yesterday I shared that I got some catching up to do with regards to my blog post. Here's what I have done for My Little Shoebox for December using Vintage Shop Collection.

"Love Is A Canvas" Card

I used Silhouette Cameo to cut out this card and the tree. Have I mentioned before that I love trees?? I think I did. Well, I outlined the card and the tree with a zig pen and added some banners at the bottom. I love this owl!!! Its so so cute!!! I added a small owl inside the card and through the "window", you can see that its like peeking through the tree.

For the clouds, I watercolored blue tint of color with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pen and popped a few up with foam strip.

Here's the inside of the card. I added the journalling tag and adhered the small owl on top.

"Owls Handmade" Layout

For this layout, I used black cardstock to emphasise the night flea market pictures. I painted the background and edges with white acrylic paint. I love how simple this layout is being assembled together, with just a few strips of patterned papers. I printed My Little Shoebox digital designs (the 2 big bunch of flowers) at Silhouette as the mat for the title.

"Five Owls" Layout

This is my favourite layout for December. :) Its dedicated to my 4 close scrapbooking friends. Though there's no photos, each frame represents each of us. These white frames are made with Martha Stewart molds and clays. Five of us loved owls, hence calling ourselves owls. :)

To create the background, I stamped with Unity/MLS co-branded stamps, adhered some mini alpha stickers and misted with glimmer mists. Then I adhered the paper strips and laces, followed by the frames and flowers.

Recently I developed a love for pearls and swarovski crystals. So I added them into this layout too.

"Make & Take" Layout

For this layout, I adhered Muse Cardstock Alpha Stickers and paper clips with multi-medium and misted with glimmer mist. Then I added the mixture of textured paste, glass bead gel  and acrylic paints over a circles mask. A few layers of edge-punched patterned papers are added as background for the photos.
I used the same mixture of texture paste onto the Dusty Attic chipboard shapes and added swarovski crystals to them. I also popped up the title to make them stand out.

I hope you enjoy my projects today. Do drop by My Little Shoebox for more inspiration. And Frosted Designs' 12 Days Of Christmas Challenge is still ongoing till 31th December. And do drop by My 4th Blog Candy to win some goodies.

Some Catching Up!!

Hi, everyone. Hope you have a joyful Christmas and warm family bonding time.

I realise that I got some catching up to do. I haven't blog about my past 2 months My Little Shoebox assignments. Oh dear!!! Memory failing???? Maybe.. ha ha... So here's the catching up....

For November, I created a Chinese Lantern and a layout using Cherry Delight Collection.

"Cherry Lantern"

I really love this paper for this paper collection. Its the perfect paper for making this lantern. I love the contrasting colors, red and cream. It really bring out the flower shape. I also added the 3D Roll Up Flowers as the flower center. So its like a flower within a flower.

"Malacca" Layout

This layout was made to document our Church Camp trip at Malacca this June. I love the cardstock stickers and layered them with the 3D Roll Up Flowers too.

Well, I will share the December assignments tomorrow. Hope you are inspired by my projects. Have a fun week ahead.

Thanks for visiting.

On The 8th Day Of Christmas...

On the 8th Day of Christmas, my challenge at Frosted Designs' "12 Days Of Christmas Challenge" is to use 8 brands/products in your projects. 

"Merry Xmas" Mini Album

This mini album was made with the following brands/products:
  • Simple Stories Patterned Papers
  • Burlap fabric and trim
  • American Crafts alpha thickers
  • Ranger (Tim Holtz) tissue paper
  • Ranger ice glitter and distress inks.
  • Charms and beads
  • Folkart white acrylic paint
  • Claudine Hellmuth multi-medium

Besides this challenge, I also made this Christmas mini album for a Christmas Album Swap organised by my dear friend, Elaine. So, Michelle, my swap partner, this album is for you. :)

I loved burlap fabric and the white Christmas theme. For the cover, I used mixed media technique. I wanted a clean, simple look. 

I made a pocket on the 1st page and kept the rest of the album simple with spaces for photos. I loved layering the strips of papers to make the Christmas trees. Christmas tree is one of my favourite icon. Well, I love trees!! Its always amazing to see how God made each and every trees unique. And its such a joy to look closely at different trees.

Another pocket was added here with 2 tags. I cut out part of the circles from patterned paper to make into a banner. 

I hope you enjoyed my project. Do hop over to Frosted Designs to join in the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge. There's lots of prizes to be won. And there's also a "Refer A Friend" Contest here. Have fun and a early Merry Christmas!!
