Make Stuff Monday - colourful decorated paper bag


 


In today's Make Stuff Monday, I'm sharing a colourful decorated paper bag. :)



These days I've been enjoying the "b' sides of my patterned paper stash. You know how we love the 'a' sides of patterned papers because of some cute motif or text but they never end uo being used because they never seem to go on any project? Well, it's time to explore the 'b' sides, more understated and totally usable. *winks*


How cute are the little birdies? Hope this project puts a smile on your face as we start another week. :)

Another week , another upcycled project...


 

Here is this week's upcycled cute project! :)

There's something satisfying about using the bits and bobs from your stash and coming up with a cute project. *happy music plays in the background*


Here is the skincare product sample envelope I used.

Patterned paper is amazing eh? *winks*

Workspace Wednesday - I made fruit tarts!


 


Well friends, your gal here is back to baking again! I made the pastry cream last night, made the dough this morning and we had fruit tarts by 11.30am. With positive feedback from mum, nephew #1 and #3 and bestie *high fives all around*

I wanted to put passionfruit on all the tarts but I gave up after 5 because it was too much work...so I went with blueberries for the rest. :)

Hope your week has been going well. :)

The one about the day we went out to eat


 


We live in strange times...when even eating out as a family is considered a scrapbook worthy event. *LOL* Things are supposedly "back to normal" in the larger scheme of things but my folks pretty much only head out for daily exercise and groceries.


Nephew #1 had his dragon boating race that day so we went to support him and also tried out this famous kway chap hawker stall nearby (only open for 4 hours 4 days a week). It was a 30 minute queue...and the folks really enjoyed the meal. 


Had lots of fun with the blooms, stickers and washi tape.:)


The background paper already had some blooms but I just had to add more. *winks*


Hope you are taking time to scrap the little moments in life. 

Happy Tuesday!:)

Mixed Media Monday - how about a bird painting?


 


Happy happy Monday friends! How about a bird painting for Mixed Media Monday? *winks*

Well, you know that in the past, my birds tend to be on the fuller side so I really tried my best to paint a moderately fluffy bird this time (after all birds tend to come in all shapes and sizes..;).

I did start with a rough pencil sketch to help me along (a guideline so I don't go rogue...*LOL*), went in with watercolours, then finished off with coloured pencils, acrylic paint markers (white & black) and a white gel pen.

What do you think?

Decorated notebook ideas


 


So I've recently finished decorating a whole stack of notebooks to tuck into my happy mail packages. I've consolidated them into one post so that you can be inspired to create your own. :)












I've kept them relatively flat for ease of use and to facilitate efficient storage. It's great way to use up your fussy-cut elements from other projects, add texture through washi tape and interest through stickers.:)

Which is your fave?

Happy Wednesday!


 


Happy Wednesday friends! Today is my out-to-run-errands day...so here is a quick share! Hope you are having good weather on your end....it's been both sunny and rainy every day...which I'm not too mad about ...as long as the sunny part is when I'm out and the rainy part is when I'm home. *LOL*

The one about my European gifts


 


Not sure about you but my family scrapbook albums over the last 2.5 years has been mostly on food and stuff. Because we haven't been out much and also because nobody looks good in a mask....*LOL*


Anyway, just wanted to document my European gifts from my sister on this layout. And also how long I waited for my barista (aka sister) to make me a coffee after she got back from her trip. (She took a course on hand-poured coffee...and bought a ton of coffee equipment).:)


Yep...cute pig makes another appearance! *winks*


Lots of scrap bits in vibrant colours. :)

Workspace Monday - what I'm currently working on


 


Happy Monday friends! I have been on a floral kick since Friday....this is work-in-progress on a fourth piece. *high fives all around* Currently trying to get the hang of making Reels on IG so I've been filming little snippets of my painting. Which is a challenge given the size of my small desk by the window. Yep...I got paint on the bedsheets today. *LOL*

Friday's Florals - getting back to floral painting


 


It's been almost a month since I last did a floral painting. A break after #the100dayproject was totally necessary for me to reflect and recharge. So many boo boos in this one but that's the way I roll and learn. :)

Have a great weekend my friends!

Yes, I just want the cute pig everywhere. Currently have 2 more in my stash. But they could be like Santa and multiply! *LOL*
