p/s : I haven't crafted consistently as before as mojo took a holiday... :) I would try to keep up, may be once twice a week to keep up with DT work. 365cards was closed earlier this year and recently the rest of the DT and admins at Kaboodle Doodles had said farewell too. I had missed playing at other sites. Just need to keep up to use up my stash for the good!

Let's Scrap 4-9-14

Here's my take on Let's Scrap sketch 4-9-14. I had used mostly Bo Bunny Ad Lib collection. I swear that's really my 1st paper collection which I bought from local scrapbook shop and I've not finished using the papers! These photos were almost 2 years old :) Do come and join us at Let's Scrap and play along!

Let's Scrap DT Challenge 4-4-14

Here's my work for DT's challenge at Let's Scrap. Ada is hosting a challenge - handmade flowers on the layout/card. You can use die cuts or machines BUT it must be handmade. There also must be 5 and more on the layout/card. So I made 3 flowers from washi tapes and 2 flowers from cotton bandage! Yes cotton bandage from Watsons! Curled, tucked and sewed a little, added a little pearl to it and voila! A flower! I played with plenty inks tonight and ended up with very green fingers.I certainly had fun creating this layout though the process of creating the flowers were pretty slow (actually I took made one a day) and finally assembled the whole thing tonight. Do come play along at Let's Scrap & have fun!

Random Layout - Moments Recorded March2014

I'm playing along at Moments Recorded challenge March2014. Stacy Koo is hosting this month and it's a photo inspiration challenge with 2 criteria - make a project or card or LO inspired by the cushion photo and must include butterflies. I interpreted the photo as a sketch, butterflies on top and I subbed the birdcage with my nest! Other than that it's the colors - I started off with a white cardstock and the most obvious stark black butterflies. Colors inspiration from the photo was mainly blue. I did a lot of random layers of stamping all over with some dots and 2 newsprint stamps. Most of the inks used were  Distress Inks. Using glaze medium I added the jute grass and cotton bandage to add some layers, before I went crazy with Dylusions. Finally I stamped some butterflies around and added the rubon title. It is certainly great having my scrapping mode back. I haven't been crafting productively until today, I'm so glad!

Thanks for looking!
