A little bit on the banner I just put up. This beautiful antique tile was nested in an old wall surrounding a rather newly built structure in Penang - those who live here will understand why I refer to the New World Park as a 'structure'.

I really love this little piece of beauty I chanced upon during lunch out with Dad today. I must admit I'm a tad nervous about posting a photograph I'd taken but like I said I love it too much to let it sit unnoticed in some little byte-space in my laptop. Really glad I had my camera (one of the rare occasions) with me for once.

I Spy

These 3D flowers were made from the same pattern paper where I cut out each petal indivdually and inked the edges before I 'curled' them slightly using scissors and assembled them with 3D adhesive.

Materials - Cardstock: Bazzill; Pattern paper: Basic Grey; Ink: Colorbox Chalk; Pen: Sakura Gelly Roll Metallic; 3D adhesive: Therm O Web Zots 3D

Accordian Folder Album

This is a little present I made for my nephew for his 2nd birthday. I hope he likes it!

I doodled the white outline of the word with the Sakura Glaze pen (the outline actually pops up slightly, giving you the effect of embossing), then used colour pencils to add touches of colour. The faint stars at the top are done using masking with chalk ink. All stretched out - side ASide BThe star is manually cut out from cardstock and inked around the edges for better depth. I then adhered it with 3D glue dots to make it pop. The embossed word is actually done using metallic ink which the photo does not seem to show to its true effect (click on photo to get clearer view).
