Permaidani {Layout} @ Scrap Africa

{My DT work for Scrap Africa}

Happy Sunday and sending you good vibes this November! Firstly, I would like to welcome my new friends to the blog: The Nickel Nook, Zuzka Cedulova and Barlie Kenny. Thank you so much for following my blog ladies.

Without further ado, here's my newest scrapbook page made as part of my design team work for Scrap Africa new sketch challenge this month.
We have beautiful Lydie Denis also known as Lilibleu as a our Guest Designer.
Come visit Scrap Africa and be inspired by my fellow teammates' gorgeous creations.

This is a page of a floating mosque my family and I visited some two years ago in Penang Island and spent a few moment for prayer and photography session 
{as always wherever I am, smile}.
It is named Masjid Terapung {Floating Mosque} built on the bay in Tanjung Bungah, Penang Island. I loved the reflection and captured its beauty through my lens.This photo was printed two years ago but only now I scrap it waiting for the right sketch!!
Well here's the hexagon sketch by Denise. Pretty eh?
Some close-up pics:
The flowers and leaves are punched from cardstocks using my two favorite old Carla Craft punches and Jeff punch.
I used modeling paste through STAMPlorations stained glass stencil to create patterns randomly over light gesso sponged up on the page earlier on.
The butterfly is a freebie, printed and cut out. I chopped off the antenna and replaced with a white wire. I love to decor my butterflies now a days {smile}. You can even see the pva glue used to stick it underneath the butterfly; it takes a while to dry and adhered strongly after dried. I always use pva glue in all my projects because of the special strong bond between the subject and the foundation; they don't come apart after completely dried.
The beads sit nicely in the flower center. They are actually left overs from my bead work project I did recently.
I also added some drywall tape, black thread and cheesecloth before I glue down the focal point, paper flowers and leaves.
The sentiment is from a chorus from a song entitle Permaidani by local artist; typed and printed.
The hexagons were cut out the old school way from a template which is kept in the file for so long. Always come handy when need be. I gave them a coat of gesso and used STAMPlorations crisscrossed stencil to form pretty cool patterns using modeling paste.
 Lastly as you can tell, I started stamping randomly and playing up with watercolors, let them run here and there until I was satisfied. The end process was splattering white paint and I was done. 
I hope you get some inspirations from my design this time. I look forward to see your creation/s at Scrap Africa this month. You have one month long to take part and stand a chance to win fabulous prize.

Until then. See you again soon and take care.
Hugs and smiles,
