Art Journal @ Digistamps4Joy

{My DT work for Digistamps4Joy}

Hello again! I'm having two posts today to share with you. This minute on behalf of Digistamps4Joy, I'm here to remind you a mid-challenge reminder and this will continue until the end of the month. My teammates at Team B have designed awesome projects
to inspire you. Click here to take you to the blog.

Here's sharing my art journal pages about flora and fauna. The challenge theme is as always Anything Goes and the twist is add a handmade embellishment. I punched some tiny flowers to adhere on the pages and stick on rhinestones in the center of the flowers. 
 Some up-close pictures:
I love this be successful and prosperous in life one shouldn't let others turn you down. One may listen to their advice and opinion but it's you who will face all the steps in your life. At the end of the day it's all about you! Don't you agree?

 You may notice the birds looking shabby. I purposely rub on the image and tear the paper naturally so they look like feathers. 
We are pretty excited to see your entries before the month ends so start creating and have fun.

Challenges I wish to enter:
1. Path Of Positivity : Challenge #34 Prosperity

Until the morning after.
Have great days ahead.

Hugs and smiles,

Here is the mood board:
And some up-close photos:
Feels motivated by the quote? I sure do {smile}. Growing up, that's what my Mother has taught me to be independent in order to be successful and someday I will gain the fruit of prosperity that only comes with hard work. 
I hope my work gives you some inspirations.
Look forward to see your projects at Scrap Africa before the month ends.

Canvas Artwork @ TTCRD

Hi everyone! Here's sharing my DT project for Through The Craft Room Door newest challenge for this week. Same theme as always Anything Goes.
The design team has come out with lots of awesomeness using beautiful images sponsored by Pickled Potpourri. Click here to take you to TTCRD weekly challenge.

Once again I created a less is more canvas as I am very much into canvas work to kick start the year and play with paints and mixed media stuff.  
I want my canvas to be simple without layers and cluster for a change. Not my style but less is more can be more stylish I think. So I only added stencil work for interest.

I printed the images entitle Hearts and Flowers sponsored by Pickled Potpourri on tissue paper, cut them out and adhered directly on the canvas with clear sealer and let dry. Then I colored the hearts with similar acrylic colors.
The sentiment used is part of a song lyric by local band Akim & The Magistrate. Here's the video clip by the way:
The song simply inspired me to create and keep creating {smile}. Having said that, I hope you like my art piece this time and I look forward to see your make at TTCRD before time runs...send in your Anything Goes entries by 12 January 2015. 

Challenges I wish to enter:
1. Where The HeART Is : Challenge 5 ATG
2. Our Crafty Corner : ATG

Have a good day and take care.
Hugs and smiles,

Create Your Destiny Without Fear @ STAMPlorations

Hi everyone! Wishing you a blessed and wonderful 2016 with good health and prosperity. I started the new year preparing for the new school term commencing today. That's's the return of school where I live while other states in Malaysia starts tomorrow. The children and I were away vacationing for five weeks, hence my silence from blog land. Holidays over and play time done so it's back to higher thinking level to my children and behind them is their mother who will screw them up from time to time {chuckle}.
 Today I am back with fresh mind but unfortunately the flu bug came from nowhere and hit me so bad. Breathing is difficult when one nostril is runny and blocked. I hope to feel better soon.

On a cheerful note, here's bringing you my newest artwork to kick start the year designed for STAMPlorations.
Click here and have a see at the wonderful mixed media projects by my fellow teammates.

This is my less is more canvas artwork sandwich with paper strips, gesso and and modeling paste for simple texture.
I created a homemade canvas from chipboard and added layers of paper strips. Then gesso-ed the surface with two coats and let dry naturally. I used acrylic paints and blended four to five colors for the background and let dry once again.
 I used modeling paste through Tribal Triangles ARTplorations stencil to create patterns randomly and highlighting them with some coordinated colors. I also used STAMPlorations stamp set BOLD SENTIMENTS - Create for the sentiment. 
Next I stamped three butterflies namely Blossom Like A Butterfly on cardstock, cut them out, colored them with different shades of color pencils and adhered them on the canvas. 
Are you all set for 2016 challenges?
The STAMPlorations January Mixed Media Challenge is waiting for your entries!
Link up your work here by January 31.
