little drummer

I haven't been scrapping lately just because I don't have a mojo visiting me for the past 6 days. However, I managed to create one layout and this time I did not use any paint at all. I used the K & Co. die cuts which all the flowers, birds, bees and etc are all pre-cut - all you need to do is just paste them anywhere you like. That is what I did for this layout...it took me 3 days to have this done. Why? I scrapped and I stopped and I continued the next day and I stopped...that is what happened when I don't have a mojo.

My girl is into the music since she is about 9 months, if you follow my blog long enough I have scrapped her photo previously beating the drum. She is definitely following her daddy, we used to do a jamming session at home just the three of us and it is fun! Daddy got her a set of mini drum last month and the moment she saw the set she screamed and I still remember her face. Here is the layout of my dear daughter beating the hi-hat and thanks to Chris for the tittle.





Thanks for looking and for all the comments on my previous post and have a good day!

Watching

Over at StuckOnUSketches, they are having a monthly challenge and for this month challenge, the sketch is done by Ness

I managed to create one on Monday night and here is my take, not so happy with the outcome - you know lately I love to play with paints/colours instead of layering patterned papers in my layout. Here is my take...



Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting.

@ 23 months

I did this layout using a mix media again...in love with this technique and all the doilies used in this layout cut by yours truly, I love all the doilies dies...just perfect and so nice.

The Color Room # 58


My take and enjoy the pictures...

@23 months
I splattered the paint everywhere and added some gesso

flowers are glued everywhere instead of flocking them in one place

machine sewed the photo edges again, isn't this doily nice? no?

this doily as well

I love the dimensions that I have created in this layout

another doily


Thank you for looking and have a great week.

Chicka for TCR # 57


and here is my take....
I enjoyed so much doing this layout, took me almost an hour to get it done last night and sewing on the photo is just gonna be my craziness at this moment and again I used the texture paste and some gesso and coloured the background paper in brown randomly (which you can't really see it in this photo)

I love all the dimensions that I have created in this layout

can you see the brown paint?

the journal was typed using red ribbon instead of black...something different

thanks for the flowers Kak Ame (only 1 bloom is from Prima)

don't you love the ruffles skirt? hand sewn by me

she is my everything...my DD, Miss Z

That's all for now and thanks for visiting and have a great day!

CLOSE UP

Hi! Thank you to all the comments on my previous post, I truly appreciate all of it.

I did one layout yesterday night, the sketch is from Pretty Paper Petals but I am not entering their blog challenge since I don't have any of their Pretty Paper Petals product to use in my layout. The sketch is designed by Nadia Cannizzo for Pretty Paper Petals. The sketch:


My take for the above sketch. This time and may be the next time, I am trying hard not to sew the edges of my layout actually I am itching to sew the edges...

layout of my DD, Miss Z (a clean look layout for me)

I sew the edges of the 4R photo, I purposely let the machine run so that I don't have a straight lines of thread

same goes to the laces, I sewed using the black thread instead of pasting it using glue. I used 2 laces - white and soft green and the bottom one is muslim cloth twirled and sewed.

love the Donna Downey flower stamp and I mist the paper a little bit (can you see the muslim cloth which I twirled and sewed)

IRL, this layout has lots of dimensions


Thanks for looking and have a great week.

Bonding


I have created four layouts on Saturday last week, this is the 4th layout.

The other three will only be shared with you next month. Here is the layout I did for Butterfly Crafts April Challenge.


I just love the bonding between these two girls, always so happy together. We miss you Afzan!

Helping Mom

Thanks for all the comments in my previous entry and this will be a short entry.

Layout was done last week on Thursday and I went a little bit crazy with the lace, trims and some fibers. Not to forget some texture paste went wild as well. I lost my mojo while creating this layout however I still want to submit and share my totally disaster layout with all of you.

This layout is for Show us your stuff challenge blog which I happened to browsed their blog last week. Do join their May challenge as it is pretty easy and I am sure you have what they want.

Have a great week and thanks for looking.

The Color Room Palette # 56


I haven't done any layout for quite a long time and here I am getting myself dirty last night creating a layout. I am pleased with the outcome and the only thing that I am not happy is that, I don't do any sewing/stitching. Usually I like my layout to look more vintage and messy at the edges by sewing it using my sewing machine and distress a bit but yesterday I wasn't in the mood of sewing, so be it. Hence it has a clean look at the edges...kind of so "plain Jane".

Haven't post a lot of pictures lately, enjoy looking ;)


Layout of my DD, she was crying out loud during our holiday last year. I can't recall why is my DD crying but this photo just explained how sad she is at that very moment. Poor girl...smoochas...smoochas...Mommy love you darling.





I tried really hard gathering all the things that can fit the above TCR colours and playing with paint again is my obsession. I have tried on my previous previous post not to use so much of paper cutting as I love playing with paints. The paper I am using is from Jenni Bowlin, glad that finally I am using that paper pad. I keep telling myself not to buy any papers "anymore", but just can't help it...everything is piling up in my little studio. They are like calling my name....arghhh...


I love how I used my laboratory mini test tubes...cute isn't it?


Thank you for dropping by and have a good week ahead. Hugs
