Canvas 2

This is for L. I am in love with this canvas. It was sprayed with perfect peach mist and i used white embossing powder to emboss the background. I love that prima stamp so much. (: Love love the little details and i realised i miss having flowers on my canvas or background.

I realised that i do love TA mists a hell lot more than MR mists. It is sad because i hardly use them even though i have a few bottles of them. So i have decided to put some for sale, if you are interested. Not new but still in good working condition. I wished i could keep them but at the rate i am buying TA mists, there is just no room for maya road mists. Do take a look. (:

Here is a sneak for the next canvas:

Edit: I will not have time to update tonight so have a good 3 weeks, people! I will miss everyone but Hong Kong loves me and needs me! (: For those who are emailing me to buy stuff, pls be patient. I will attend back to you when i come back! For those who indicated, i will hold on to your purchases and send over when i am back. So sorry for the delay. Thanks :D

live, breathe scrap

I have been doing absolutely nothing but scrapping! Yes, i love you holidays! Though work is at the back of my mind, i am leaving it to saturday where i am going to use that 6 hours in school to complete some work. (:

For now, i have been scrapping a lot. A LOT! I am trying to finish as much as i set out to do before i leave for 16 days to HK. Yes, i am leaving this Sunday. I cant believe i waited so long for it to happen. (: For now, i am happily creating while sending out mails to the post office to people who ordered my stash. Once again, thank you! I am living the life that i wanted to have since i started work. I should enjoy and savour every moment before school arrives.

I simply love waking up to days where i can do anything i want and enjoy life!

So here is what i have been doing. I have been working with lots and lots of canvas because i am going to give them to each of my friend on Christmas. So here is the review of the first canvas:

This is for P. After working on this first, i realised that it was a little too cluttered. But still loving the flowers and embossing on the canvas itself. Oh! And using glimmer mists to 'cover' the canvas is 10 times more efficient than painting. You get a nicer effect and it saves a hell lot of time. (: I love you, mists!

Till tomorrow's review...

Have a good Friday ahead. TGIF!

My fear(s)

What is your greatest fear? For the longest time, i have been very scared of heights. I can still vividly remember walking on an overhead bridge when i was young. I used to be so scared of doing so, fearing that the bridge will collapse. Ever since then, no matter where I go, even if it is in a lift that is clear and transparent, i fear for my life. Haha. Weird right? But i just cant seem to overcome it and the heart beat just gets faster and faster.

But the funny thing is that I am not that afraid of taking rollercoaster rides because I know that I will eventually come down and it will end within a few minutes but what really scares me is being perpectually up there. Such is an incident that took place in the recent trip to USA. I think i shared here before that I was forced to take the cable car up to Mount Teton which was 12000 ft above ground. Dad had to literally bribe me with hot chocolate but even then, i was not convinced myself. I think I did it for the sake of not disappointing the rest.

So i scrapped about it:

That's me, holding Dad's hand. Mum even said she was not scared but look at her!Haha. Not once did I let go of Dad's hands and not once did i look up to see the view. Haha. P.S: If you see the close up, you will realise i drew cable car line on the city landscape stamp. (: And the new craze is bakerz twines. :D

24 years and it is still like that. Haha. I wished there was some ways to overcome it but it just daunts upon me that it might never happen. But i guess I am happy this way. Right now, I am just thinking of how to escape not taking the cable car to Lantau Island when I leave for HK this week.

So what is your greatest fear?

I will be drawing a winner tonight, for the giveaway. Thanks for all your support. (: By the way, both stashes on the top bar has been updated. I uploaded more stuff that I want to sell. Do take a look. Thanks. :D

a cute girl, a layout and a GIVEAWAY!!!!!

Kate is growing up so fast, it amazes me by how her personality has evolved. She is still that gentle well mannered girl but she has her days when she throws her fits. I guess it is hard for her to express herself since she cant really say what she wants. We are learning to deal with them and teach her patiently as we go along. By the way, she is my niece, not my daughter. Isnt she cute with her little doggie?

I managed to do a layout over the weekend but have slackened since then. Hopefully, i will have the energy to do finish up my christmas projects tonight and tomorrow. I do like this layout a lot. Who says that OA Seaside has to be done with pictures at the beach? I like how my title shows the fun side of what the CG means to us. (:

Oh and finally, as promised... A giveaway! A huge thanks to all those who purchased items from my blog. My heartfelt thanks to you guys! (: As for this giveaway, these were items that were once so dear to me and as you can see, some have been used but not all. They are not complete sets but what are left are brand new. A brand new AC album while the rest are a mixture of Webster, MM, Pink Paislee, Sassafras Lass etc.

To win this giveaway, simply leave a comment and I will choose a winner on 23rd Nov, 10 pm.

Have a great Tuesday! (:

Rainy Monday

It was a beautiful night yesterday, sleeping while it rained and i nearly couldnt wake up this morning. I am back on my scrapping mojo. Remember i had plans to scrap on my USA trip pictures but somehow, i only managed to complete 2 LOs and i just lost the motivation to continue. So i figured that making an album would be more feasible. I took some of the pictures i developed and made the album.

I am so happy to how it turned out. I was contemplating on whether i should use my precious PP anthology papers as i simply adore the resist patterns on them. But anyhow, I am glad i used it. Explored how to bring out the resist patterns most. (:

Presenting my blue and white album!

I used all my favourite blue mists in this album: Jack Frost, Jazz Blue, Patina, Turquoise, Autumn Night. The page with the words "Snow" was using thickers mask to eccentuate the words.On the last page, the one with the cable car lines.. THe background was using my $2.50 blue ink to distress the resist. I love how it turns out.

A current favourite element that i love to add in albums are hamblys overlays. I just love the mix of transparency with papers. (:

There you go, the USA trip album is completed. Now i can start doing my HK Sept trip. Haha. (: Thanks for dropping by. Look out for the next post: It will be a ........Giveaway!

destashing mode

Edit 6/11/2010: Look at the Tab above! Presenting SB stuff at crazy deals. (: Do check it out and see whether you are interested. Thank you. (:

The scrap table was in such a terrible mess that i got so irritated by how i was going to clean it up. With perseverance, I managed to clear all the unwanted mess. Managed to sort out what i did not want and put it into this white Ikea box. What I am going to do is to sell some of my items as well as do another giveaway. Most of the stuff are brand new so please support. It is going to be a huge giveaway. I am sure it will benefit those that will use it. (:

So watch this space. I will be back to post pictures as well as to show you the latest album i finished. I am back! (:
