Busy but productive

I've been too busy to post, but still am very productive these past few weeks. Here are some LOs I've done:

This one was made for the Elimination Round of Scrapping Idol 3. You can check out the link here. I didn't intend to join a 2nd time since I thought I'd be too busy to do weekly LOs as a challenge. My good friend, Lee, convinced me that this will force me to make at least 1 LO a week. It's also true that as per experience, I learned quite a lot of new techniques, helping me to stretch myself creatively. For this LO, I used ordinary kasta cloth (canvas cloth used for painting before it is primed). The challenge was to use an ad as a sketch to make our own interpretation. I promised myself that I will only make LOs true to my style. Hence, even if what was required was a wave design of a red-black-white color scheme, mine came out differently. The series of photos showed Galo around 1 year 3 mos. playing around with the tape measure.

Materials: plain katsa cloth cut into 12x12; Glimmer Mist Merlot & Olive Vine; Colorbox Mini Peacock, Moss Green and Peony; blue measuring tape from Studio Azul Kit; Cosmo Cricket Blackboard Fleuriste chipboard; 7 Gypsies Gaffer tape black definitions; Fancy Pants Lace Wraps Powder; Carolina's white cotton lace; K&Co Alphabets Stickers To Go; Inkssentials Opaque White Pen. Stamp Used: Fancy Pants Bella Brush.

The 2nd LO was made for the Scrapping Idol 3's Challenge #1. Check it out in the Idol 3 Gallery here. This time, we were asked to do "Paper Piecing," a technique using small pieces of paper to come up with a bigger piece as part of the embellishment. I decided to go do a mosaic. I thought it would be easy since the concept seemed easy enough. What I didn't expect was how brutal it was to do. I even went further by cutting each paper piece by handtearing! How sado-masochistic was I! Nevertheless, it came out pretty well. Photo showed Galo and me admiring "It's a Small World" in Disneyland, HK.

Materials List:
Bazzill cardstock puce; Basic Grey Wassail French hens; misc. Basic Grey pp; Anna Griffin AG136; Webster's Pages A Sweet Life; MME Bohemia Cherish Botanical; AC Thickers Sprinkles; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Dewdrop & Suede; Pebeo Touch Deco Pearl Olive Green, Parma, Pink, Azure & Mist; Perfect Pearls Aged Patina Blue & Green; Sailor Pen Warm Cream.

Whew! What else will they come up with next?! Also, do wait for my other projects and LOs to be posted soon.
